Persimmon Icecream

It’s amazing how delicious persimmons are, and how few people are familiar with them! A winter fruit which is a great source of vitamin C, they look stunning and taste delicious. But even fewer people are familiar with persimmon icecream. This icecream is a must-try. Fast. Convenient. Apricot-coloured. No sugar. Tasty.

Coriander Dressing for Tofu

Yum, look closely at the tofu in the picture, now imagine a balance of saltiness, sweetness, a touch of sour and the pungent fragrance of coriander, with a slightly crisp outer and soft inner on the fried tofu cubes. Totally yum, if you know anyone who says “tofu is tasteless” then try them on this recipe!…

Chickpea, Tomato and Coconut Soup

I was Googling recipes using chickpeas and ginger, as that’s what I had on hand, and I discovered this creamy, tasty and satisfying soup which is also super easy and quick to make with ingredients that are usually lurking in the pantry! I changed it around a little, and for something really special I recommend drizzling…

Savoury Seeds

We have had several requests for this recipe after serving these delicious savoury crunchy seeds sprinkled over the carrot & kumera soup. They are super easy to make, baked in 18 mins. Enjoy!

Creamy Vegetable Soup

Wintery goodness in a bowl. Vegetables, seasoning, cashew topping creaminess. Yum and warming.

Almond Cream Cheesecake

This recipe is a little more complicated, as there are 4 layers, but it is all worth it, I promise! The layers are: The base which is a simple gluten-free pastry that is rolled out and baked in the oven. Melted carob chocolate which is brushed over the base to seal it, and keep it…

Three Root Mash

This potato, kumera (sweet potato) and carrot mash gets its flavour from the bay infused soy milk. It is a creamy and flavourful mash that you can use in any meal where you would normally use mashed potato. Complements eggplant oat burgers or tofu zucchini casserole well.

Eggplant Oat Burgers

This is a great burger which you can keep small and serve as a savoury ball, or make it a bit larger and flatten it out to make a pattie or burger shape. Serve it in a roll with salad, or with marjoram potato mash for dinner. Also great with tomato sauce on pasta. The…

Potato Pizza!

Yes, a pizza base made from potato, naturally gluten-free, and amazingly delicious for anyone. The addition of a little chickpea flour and potato flour to the base of mashed potato holds the dough together well enough to roll out and cut large circles from. Once they are pre-baked for 10-15 mins they are really easy…

Vegan Lasagne

This has been a 100% hit with the teenagers I work with at school – who are by and large not used to vegetarian food at all. In fact some don’t like “vegetables” at all – and enjoyed this meal. The lasagne sheets are instant wholemeal lasagne, made from 100% whole durum wheat semolina. Left…

Tofu Zucchini Casserole

Zucchinni and scaloppini! What a great season they’ve had this summer. I think we came up with a new way of serving them every third day over the last couple of months to keep them exciting. Here’s one of our old favourites that makes a hearty and warming meal. This recipe is very easy to…

Hummus

Such a great go-to food. Satisfying, economical and so healthful. If you cook your own chickpeas from scratch it becomes super economical, just store the extra cooked chickpeas in the freezer for next time! Great served on good bread with a hearty soup for a warming meal.
