Cauliflower With Mustard Sauce

This is another contribution from landysrock (cheers). Unfortunately, I don’t like overly mustard-flavoured things (a teaspoon or so in a curry or stew is my limit) but, for those who do, it probably doesn’t get much simpler than this unless you’re squeezing some on a veggiedog.

Goes with anything! Serves 4-6.

600ml unsweetened soya milk […]

Jamaican Fritters

If you’ve got the munchies and want a fairly quick and filling snack, these should fit the bill. They’re a variation on the Indian pakora, but the addition of the buckwheat flour seems to make them both lighter and more substantial. If you don’t have buckwheat flour, just replace it with extra chickpea flour. They’re […]

Tomato & Red Onion Salad With A Punchy Dressing

Simple things can often give the greatest pleasure, much like your humble author. This salad and dressing is one of them.

Makes however much you want (salad) and loads (dressing).

For the salad:

As many tomatoes as you need for the number of people eating it – cherry tomatoes are best and should be halved, […]

Thick Onion Soup

A big thanks to landysrock, one of our readers, for this contribution. It sounds perfect for a chilly autumnal eve or a typical British summer’s day.

Got more onions than you can juggle with? Thick onion soup!

75g soya marge 500g onions(finely chopped) 1 garlic clove 40g plain flour 600ml veg stock 600ml soya milk […]

Balilah

I’m always open to new ways of incorporating the humble, yet delicious, chickpea into my diet. Legumes generally lend themselves well to all manner of savoury (and even sweet) food, but the chickpea has a soft spot in my stomach. I simply can’t imagine a world without hummus.

Seitanic Mass

I’ve read so much over the years about this mysterious wonderfood called seitan, but never been able to find the basic ingredient (wheat gluten powder) in the UK, at least not within a reasonable price range, to have a go at making it myself. There’s a long-winded way to knock some up with ordinary flour, […]

Mafé

A recent chat about things people love over at the Red & Anarchist Black Metal forum led to someone (thanks Starcide) sending me this delicious recipe. Mafé, or peanut stew, is a traditional dish eaten by the Wolof people of Senegal and Gambia. They have no hesitation in adding chunks of dead stuff to theirs, […]

Carrot, Lentil and Citrus Soup (And An Apology)

First off, I seem to have missed a week. I thought today was the first Monday of the month. Seems I was wrong. Sorry. I haven’t been slacking, in fact I’ve been far busier than normal and am only about halfway trhough getting shit together for this month’s posts. There will be music, bugs and […]

Chocolate Truffles

While I generally try to keep my recipes here free of less common manufactured products, sometimes you just need to break the rules. This recipe is one of those times. The ends really does justify the means – the rich melt-in-the-mouth creaminess and intense chocolate hit of the finished product is incredible.

Makes about 25, […]

Chili Bean Spread

Another cheap n’ cheerful spread that can be made in minutes from things that are probably lurking in your larder and fridge.

1 400g (approx) tin kidney beans, rinsed and drained 2 tsp tomato purée 1 tsp harissa (or just use another tsp of tomato purée) 1 tbs paprika powder 1-2 cloves garlic, crushed 1/2 […]
