Whipped feta with griddled veggies - Co-op
Happy days, I accidentally created something akin to cottage cheese, but completely dairy free ( but with more calories/fat unfortunately) Cut Violife Greek White into small cubes. Blitz briefly with The Coconut Collaborative Almond yoghurt. It should still have some lumps. I'm going to make this again with A) Chives B) Pineapple. I'm sure it would work with other brands but this particular combo was perfect.
Mini tortilla salad bowls with BBQ corn salsa — Co-op
The sweetness of the corn goes so well with zingy lime juice and creamy avocado. I made the salsa but not on the barbeque. I simply boiled the cobettes and then mixed with the kernels with the other ingredients. Absolutely delicious on top of a jacket potato. I'll probably buy more corn on the cob and cook it this way.
Besan Barfi: Date and Chickpea Fudge [Vegan, Gluten-Free]
This recipe didn't work very well at all! I added some water at the very end otherwise it was just crumbs. was more like a cake than a fudge. Dates give this barfi (Indian-style fudge) a unique twist, and chickpea flour adds a nutty flavor and melt-in-your-mouth texture.
Healthy Green Bean Casserole
vegan green bean casserole (with parsnip sauce!) Sounds really strange but it does work. However, my sauce came out too dark which didn't look so appealing against the beans. It would make a fab pasta sauce , will try again and serve with spaghetti and parmesan style cheese
Red Lentil and Eggplant Curry | Food & Drink | The Weekend Edition
Red Lentil and Eggplant Curry . I used half the amount of oil in the paste. Red onion was swapped with shallots. I used baby aubergine and used low cal spray . Coconut milk was swapped with cashew milk. It was a little bitter but still quite tasty. And incredibly easy.
Ribollita, A Tuscan Memory of Cabbage Soup
Ribollita is a substantial Italian soup made traditionally with cavolo nero cabbage. Although they don't suffer the same stigma as brussels sprouts , cabbages are an undervalued vegetable. I made this in the slow cooker, it is tastier than it sounds. Used some fennel too, but didn't make croutons. Loads of leftovers.
Slow Cooker Vegetarian Indian-Spiced Lentils with Spinach and Rhubarb - One Hundred Dollars a Month
Rhubarb. Is it a fruit or a vegetable. Well, in terms of sweet or savoury it can be either, and here is a super simple slow cooker recipe. Indian lentils with spinach and rhubarb. I have made this and it was nice. Update: the recipe asks for 3 tbsp of dried / gound ginger but in actual fact it should be FRESH ginger. It is smelling really good by the way!
Simnel cherry tart
Simnel cherry tart. A cross between a fruit cake and a bakewell tart, a take on the seasonal classic . The tradition of decorating the cake with 11 marzipan balls (the apostles minus Judas) developed in the late Victorian era. Before that flowers were used.I made this. Not as pretty,but tastes yum. A bit like mince pie due to the fruit and jam.
