In case you’ve just arrived here by chance I’ll fill you in on something important about me: I love dumplings. Dumplings are life and I love them in all their many forms. I’ve tried many vegetarian dumplings and these are definitely my favourite ones. Tis rich mushrooms with the fresh chives is just such a good combination!
Yep. It’s another cauliflower recipe, I just can’t help myself. And another chickpea recipe. Dressing chickpeas with delicious flavoursome dressings is my current thing. They just soak up flavour so well and are super filling so are great in lighter salads like this.
These brownies are fudgy and delicious, higher in protein than a regular brownie and vegan to boot. They’re still a treat food though. A very, delicious, chocolatey, fudgy treat food. And they have a secret ingredient.
Okay so I do realise that yakitori belongs on a skewer but stop ruining my fun and love of food in a bowl. This has all the flavours of yakitori marinade but you don’t need to put the meat on a skewer or have a grill/open flame to cook it on. So it’s yakitori, but less effort.
Well hello there you spicy-flavour-texture-bomb-colourful bowl of goodness you. This is not my first vegetarian bibimbap. It’s more of a green and pink affair than the last one and I’m totally into the colour combo. And the flavours. Everything on this is yelling at you but when you get them all together they harmonise.
This is so simple to make and so full of flavour. It feels like you’re eating something healing too because of the slurpy broth and big vegetable content. The gently poached chicken adds extra flavour to the broth, however you can leave it out, swap the chicken stock for vegetable stock and you’ve got a great vegetarian meal.
This chickpea salad is the kind of salad that will have a chickpea salad hater scooping up every last chickpea. Seriously. That dressing and chickpeas are meant to be. It’s a love story. A Parmesan laced love story.
This pasta. This pasta is everything. Soft, gently cooked, flakes of salmon tossed with al dente orecchiette that scoops up the peas and herbs. Plus, the fennel and lemon are the perfect thing to compliment salmon. This pasta is light and flavoursome. Fresh spring flavours in a bowl.
I’m going to start this post by saying I’m not really into tofu. I think it can be really bland sometimes and I’m not always into the spongy texture. This tofu is none of those things. This tofu I love. It’s crispy on the outside, smothered in satay sauce and nice and soft in the centre. This is the tofu that has converted me.
A really good sandwich or roll is so satisfying. Yummy flavour combinations between two pieces of bread and you end up so far from the soggy nightmares of your school days. I’ve been known to happily eat a sandwich for dinner (ummm has anybody not done this?). In reality they’re just another version of a burger and that’s dinner food so why not all other sandwiches? Come on, give me one reason?! They’ve got all the parts of a nourishing meal, complex carbohydrate, vegetables, protein. You can even have a side salad if it’ll make you feel like it’s more of a meal.
