Vegan Shakshuka

Posted on

I usually prefer food which is vegan by design over meat substitutes. However, I’m glad I decided to give this tofu vegan shakshuka a try. It was delicious, with a good amount of heat and no obvious tofu taste, which I would have considered out of place in this dish.

Eggplant/Aubergine with Potato and Sweet Pepper

Posted on

I made this dish using a recipe which is no longer online. It required one eggplant, a couple of tomatoes, a few potatoes, an onion, 1 red chilli, 1 clove of garlic, 1 teaspoon paprika powder, 1 sweet red pepper, olive oil, salt, and fresh parsley, basil and sage.

Chard/Mangold, Onion and Goat Cheese Tart

Posted on

I used a prepared puff pastry as the base. The first layer is red onions which were carmelized slowly in oil, along with two sprigs of thyme. The chard stems are lightly par-boiled and the leaves were cooked to wilt. Honey goat cheese and pan-fried sweet pepper tops the dish.

 

Pasta in Creamy Summer Vegetable Sauce

I took this recipe from One-Dish Vegan by Robin Robertson, although I opted to use mu-err mushrooms instead of white ones, and left 1/4 of the vegetables intact to give it a little more texture. The sauce is made from courgette/zucchini, mushroom, tomato, onion, garlic, sweet tomato, white beans and herbs.

I didn’t find the sauce that creamy but rather on the boring side. I won’t make this again.
