The curried tempeh I’m sharing today makes one tasty, high protein sandwich filling! For my work lunch box, I love to serve it in a seeded bap with some juicy tomato slices, diced red pepper, fresh green leaves and a dollop of vegan mayo or mango chutney. Just like tofu, I find that adding a couple of slices of tempeh to my lunchtime sandwich really helps to power me through the afternoon and keeps me feeling full for hours.
Today I’m sharing a delicious mushroom and lentil ragout that is hearty, warming and filling. It’s just perfect for serving on a chilly day! Rich in umami flavour, this plant-based ragout is simple to make and uses basic pantry ingredients. It is also super cheap too! We love to serve it with mashed potato, but jacket potato, pasta, polenta or rice would also be great options!
With its mild taste and soft texture, dhal has got to be the most family-friendly Indian dish! I first introduced dhal to Lucien when he was a toddler. As a twist on the classic recipe – and to bring a touch of sweetness and creaminess to the dish – I added some creamed coconut and butternut squash. He absolutely loved it! Fifteen years on, and this recipe is still a firm family favourite. We make it at least a couple of times a month!
Today I’m sharing some delicious home-made vegan truffles that are really easy and quick to prepare. With a fudgy centre speckled with shiny red cranberries and a dark chocolate coating, these truffles are the perfect treat for the festive season. They also happen to be packed full of nutrient-rich ‘feel-good’ ingredients, making them one festive treat that you definitely won’t regret indulging in!
