Kidney Bean and Butternut Squash Soup

Posted on

This kidney bean and butternut squash soup is perfect for autumn. I really appreciated the inclusion of cinnamon and cumin seeds. I chose to include the latter whole instead of crushed. I opted for fresh tomatoes instead of tinned ones, but had to use tinned corn instead of fresh. I used dried kidney beans which I soaked overnight and cooked before using. I used vegetable stock and skipped the pumpkin seeds.

The original recipe calls for topping the soup with feta. It’s quite tasty without feta; there is no reason this won’t work perfectly as a vegan recipe.

Squash, Chard/Mangold and Bean Taco

I used this recipe although I opted for black-eyed beans instead of black beans, and whole-wheat tortillas. I did not like it as much as grilled vegetables in a tortilla, but my dining companion liked it.

Brown Soda Bread: A Regular Recipe

Posted on

I don’t always try new things. Brown soda bread is something I make about twice a month. I like to replace some of the brown flour with teff, buckwheat, and/or rye, and to replace some of the buttermilk with roast squash. I usually top it with sunflower or pumpkin seeds.

I used this recipe, substituting carrots for half of the butternut squash.

This can be served with cheese, as in the recipe, or without it for a vegan variation.

Vegetables in Green Curry

This was my first attempt at making a Thai curry from scratch, instead of using a spice paste.

This dish is not vegetarian due to the use of fish sauce. I cooked sweet pepper, butternut squash, green beans, carrot and onion in the sauce.

Vegan Lasagne

Posted on

I made one of my favourite lasagnes, which happens to be vegan. Vegetarian spinach lasagne and Moosewood lighter vegetarian lasagne are the other two I’m fond of. I used butternut squash, sweet peppers, courgette/zucchini, and kale. My basic tomato sauce also contains carrots, so there were plenty of vegetables amid the cashew cream and the pasta sheets I added.
