Recipes for the week starting 9th of July
This is a Tofu, pea and cashew curry, based on a recipe by Meera Sodha. The cashew gravy also has tomato; the spices are cumin, turmeric and coriander... This one is Vegan, DF and GF
In winter every week should have at least one soup... this one is Potato, leek and cauliflower soup. The bread in the photo is Gilbert's Otaki Sourdough - excellent friend of any soup... It's very simple, quick (start to finish in half an hour) and a satisfying meal for cold days! Vegan, DF and GF (simply omit the yoghurt on top)
Vegetarian/Vegan nachos are super simple, but this recipe delivers loads of flavour - not too much heat and all of the colours! Also spare corn chips to snack on while you cook...Vegan, DF and GF (Cheese is up to you)
Savoury Tarte Tatin is an upside-down tart with red onion and apple wedges, parmesan and thyme in the pastry and thyme sprinkled over the apple/onion wedges. It looks a bit flash, and it takes a bit of time, but would still only take about an hour to make and is very tasty... If you have friends coming over for dinner this would be a great treat...Vegetarian only(not DF or GF).
These mock whitebait fritters are really yum and they only use a small amount of fish which can be handy. You poach the fish lightly, then flake it into some beaten egg with chopped flatleaf. Then cook and eat. This is great for weekend breakfast or brunch, but also a really quick evening meal with perhaps some salad or fermented veg... Also they kinda taste like whitebait fritters without the environmental impact... win win! DF and GF
and finally, a Chicken traybake that includes a big range of roasted veg, and a vibrant pesto of kale and cashew. Because the recipe uses chicken pieces the whole meal will only take you about 40 minutes, and most of that is doing something else while you wait for it to bake... DF and GF
