This salad is full of flavour and texture thanks to the creamy dressing, crunchy almonds, sweet pumpkin and fresh spinach. The perfect prep ahead work salad. Just don’t toss it all together until you’re ready to eat.
First things first – you do not need a tagine to cook this, it works fine in a deep sided pan with a fitted lid so don’t go scrolling past this deliciousness because of your equipment woes. And it is so delicious, spicy sweet and salty flavours mix with delicious textures to make this the perfect autumn comfort food. And it’s easy.
This mushroom soup is the perfect thing for autumn. It’s earthy and warming and super filling thanks to a secret ingredient that also gives it a creamy texture – without the cream.
Another dairy free, vegan, gluten free cheesecake miracle! This one is a little simpler, fresher and more pink than my other cheesecake slice. An oat and almond base is topped with strawberry cashew ‘cheesecake’ filled with chunks of fresh strawberry and a swirl of strawberry puree. It’s delicious and very pretty.
This recipe was inspired by a free form berry tart recipe from the master of all baked things, Margaret Fulton. However I wanted to use a wholegrain pastry, decrease the sugar and use a fruit that was currently in season: persimmon. As I was asking this my housemate questioned my fruit choice as he thought they were savoury, more like a tomato, it goes to show that this golden fruit is not getting the love it deserves! Persimmon’s might not have the biggest fan club which is kind of surprising, because when very ripe they are sweet, low in acidity and so delicious.
