Corn Chaat (Masala Corn)

Corn Chaat (Masala Corn)

This is my second Indian snack, or easy Indian recipe this week. Now don’t get me wrong, masala sandwiches and corn chaat (also known as masala corn) are very post-worthy, but I had originally planned to space them out more, and post a VERY tasty […]

5-Minute Masala Sandwich

5-Minute Masala Sandwich

This recipe is so easy and quick, that quite frankly I’m embarrassed to be calling it a recipe at all. Be warned, 5-minute masala sandwich can be utterly addictive and completely deceiving in its simplicity. The toasted bread, crunchy on the outside and soft on […]

Fried Spaghetti with Cheddar, Tomatoes and Onions

Fried Spaghetti with Cheddar, Tomatoes and Onions

First off let me say that while my fried spaghetti with cheddar, tomatoes, and onions is UNBELIEVABLY easy, quick and tasty, it is definitely not a “healthy” vegetarian recipe. The word “fried” has pretty much left no doubt. It is a comfort food recipe first. […]

Fresh Green Sauce for Pasta

Fresh Green Sauce for Pasta

I know. It doesn’t sound good. Fresh green sauce for pasta? Why, is the hulk coming for dinner? But I promise you, not only is this incredibly quick sauce healthy as heck, it’s also really tasty. PROMISE. Even my kids wolfed it down (although I […]

Chunky Homemade salsa

Chunky Homemade salsa

Everyone has their kryptonite. Superman obviously has his, some people’s diets disintegrate at the sight of a Krispy Kreme, but my weak point has always been more savoury. Nachos. It’s all Nacho’s fault. Because it is definitely not this practically super healthy delicious vegan salsa […]

10-minute Sicilian Pesto Courgetti

10-minute Sicilian Pesto Courgetti

This ten-minute vegan, low-carb, inexpensive and gluten-free Sicilian (or Trapanese) pesto courgetti is no doubt the easiest healthiest thing you’ll make this week. Traditionally Trapanese pesto is made using a mortar and pestle, the crushing action releasing more flavour from the ingredients than is possible […]

Focaccia Bread with Garlic, Herbs, and Bruschetta Dip

Focaccia Bread with Garlic, Herbs, and Bruschetta Dip

I used to dislike focaccia, and thought it was a sad topping-less version of pizza, pizza’s younger slightly depressed cousin. After all, I don’t even like eating pizza crusts, so why would I make something that is essentially one big pizza crust? Then one day […]

Brazilian Black Beans (Feijoada)

Brazilian Black Beans (Feijoada)

I love beans of all shapes and descriptions, but I particularly love black beans. Why? Because in my bean-loving opinion they are the best type of beans for pressure cooking. When you need infused flavours and tender beans, plus super economical cooking, the pressure cooker […]

Hot and Sour Veg Soup

Hot and Sour Veg Soup

Hot and sour veg soup is one of my favourite dishes. Spicy, tangy, and chock-full of vegetables, it’s also a breeze to make. I like to squeeze as many vegetables as possible into it, but feel free to lessen the amount or swap out some […]

Creamy Indian Lentils (Dal Tadka)

Creamy Indian Lentils (Dal Tadka)

I have always been a fan of Indian food. As a vegetarian, lentil recipes have always had a special place in my heart. This easy yet authentic Indian lentil recipe is best made in the pressure cooker as it really infuses the flavors. But several […]
