Vegan Recipes: Lunches

It's quite an ironic twist that after all the convincing I had to do to persuade Meg to participate in a vegan month, she is the one who has created the first batch of recipes; our vegan lunches. I did of course contribute with some souper ideas which we will leek later on in this… Continue reading Vegan Recipes: Lunches

Vegan Lunches: Red Pepper and Sundried Tomato Cous Cous

As here in the UK we are in the highlight of our summer (and boy has it been a corker) I thought of this dish as it is a light lunch to be enjoyed in the sun, or as an accompaniment with a BBQ feast. Obviously a BBQ is not very vegan friendly, so whether… Continue reading Vegan Lunches: Red Pepper and Sundried Tomato Cous Cous

Vegan Lunches: Houmous and Red Pepper Dip

One of our favourite places to eat is Nando's and when we go, we go all out and have the full three courses. Our usual starter is to have is the all together now, in which you pick three different starters and have a mixture. Our usual is the olives, houmous and pitta and the… Continue reading Vegan Lunches: Houmous and Red Pepper Dip

Vegan Lunches: Leek and Potato Soup

Leek and potato soup is a classic soup that has been around for donkeys. But guess what it's Vegan, the soup, not the donkeys! The thing with making a soup is once you chopped everything, you can just leave to simmer away and come back and after a quick blitz it's ready! We made enough… Continue reading Vegan Lunches: Leek and Potato Soup

Brilliant Vegan Butternut Batch Cooking

This is another one of my famous 'Meg is at work, let's cook some weird and wonderful recipes using ingredients that I know she doesn't like' posts! Speaking to a couple of vegetarian friends in preparation for this month's theme it became clear that a popular ingredient was butternut squash and so I of course… Continue reading Brilliant Vegan Butternut Batch Cooking

Vegan Brilliant Butternut Batch Cooking: Squash and Mushroom Curry

As the fate of half the squash had been decided and had been sentenced to be stuffed, I was left with half a squash to make two recipes with. The decision was made easy by two factors: firstly, Meg not liking squash which gave me some freedom and secondly we had more ingredients in the… Continue reading Vegan Brilliant Butternut Batch Cooking: Squash and Mushroom Curry

Vegan Brilliant Butternut Batch Cooking: Stuffed Squash

Technically speaking this is not a batch cooking recipe as I wolfed the squash down as soon as it was cooked. I used half of the squash for this recipe and if Meg liked squash, it would have served two people, instead though it just served me and I enjoyed it. The only bit I… Continue reading Vegan Brilliant Butternut Batch Cooking: Stuffed Squash

Vegan Brilliant Butternut Batch Cooking: Squash and Sweet Potato Lasagne

Out of the three meals I cooked with the butternut squash, this was my favourite and Meg's least favourite, because not only did I use butternut squash, which she doesn't like, I also used sweet potatoes, which she doesn't like! I was a little dubious of this recipe when I created it because lets be… Continue reading Vegan Brilliant Butternut Batch Cooking: Squash and Sweet Potato Lasagne

Easy Vegan Rice and Pea Fritters

I was going to start by following up on our recent recipe challenge but I do believe that Meg is slightly in the lead so I will instead post the links and see how long I can drag it out! The choice is either: His Vs Hers Vegetarian Challenge: Meg’s Spinach and Cream Cheese Cannelloni or His Vs… Continue reading Easy Vegan Rice and Pea Fritters

His Vs Hers Vegetarian Challenge: Aaron’s Sweet Potato and Cream Cheese Cannelloni

I will start by giving credit where credit is due; way back when we did our 'His vs Hers' Recipe Challenge the first time, Meg's recipe was the better received of the two. It didn't taste the better of the two, neither was it the better recipe of the two but I will hand it… Continue reading His Vs Hers Vegetarian Challenge: Aaron’s Sweet Potato and Cream Cheese Cannelloni
