Matar mushroom – mushroom and pea curry

Mushrooms add great texture to vegetarian dishes and the blended cashews provide a rich creamy base for this curry. Gravy is the sauce of the curry and it’s personal whether it should be thick or thin. The joy of cooking your own is you get to decide. Personally, I...

Spinach gnocchi with cherry tomato ragù

Gnocchi has a tainted reputation due to the prepackaged varieties available in the supermarket. They are bland and very stodgy. Freshly made gnocchi should be light and fluffy like little pillows. If you’re not a fan of gnocchi and have never tried freshly made, give...

Samosas with fresh mint and coriander chutney

Everyone loves a good samosa. This samosa recipe makes a bundle of the little parcels, but don’t worry if they’re not gobbled up because they freeze well too. The secret to this recipe is the amchoor powder, which is a fruity spice powder made from dried green mangos....

Tortilla Soup

Tortilla soup is very satisfying and soulful.  This recipe is based on the traditional way to make it, however I’m leaving the option to add courgette, sweetcorn and beans to make the soup into a more substantial meal. The combination of beans, sweetcorn and squash...

Pad Thai

Over the years, I have tried various Pad Thai recipes and have been gravely disappointed. This recipe is a variation of one I learned in Chang Mai, Thailand. It’s truly authentic and delivers all that a vegetarian Pad Thai should. A couple times a year I run a Pad...

Wild Garlic Pesto

  England, in the spring, is full of wild garlic, perfect for making wild garlic pesto. I’m forever encouraging people to get out and take advantage of it. Wild garlic leaves are easy to recognize and if all else fails, just smell the leaves for that pungent...

For me, as a young university student and very new to being vegetarian, spanakopita was love at first bite. It has been a long relationship and lasted throughout the years, altered for when I was vegan for 8 years and enhanced when I started growing my own herbs. I’m...
