Vegetable Satay Stir Fry

Vegetable Satay Stir Fry

I posted this vegetable satay stir fry on my Instagram the other day but also included Quorn chicken style pieces, which is a great way to up vegetarian protein in a meal. I didn’t have any today, but the meal was just as delicious without. You can also use tofu or pulses to increase the protein in this recipe and keep it vegan. You can use any vegetables you have, from peppers to beansprouts to cabbage. Stir fry’s...
Cauliflower Feta Cakes with Guacamole

Cauliflower Feta Cakes with Guacamole

These gluten-free cauliflower feta cakes with guacamole make a perfect light evening meal or satisfying desk lunch, as they can be enjoyed hot or cold. The cauliflower cakes would also make an excellent replacement for bread in the mornings for those who can’t have gluten. They are full of protein due to the quinoa flakes, eggs and feta yet are still light as they are predominantly made of cauliflower, so are a great pre or post...

Quinoa and Brown Rice Sushi with Miso Tahini Tofu

Sushi is so satisfying to make, but it can be a very time consuming process.

They are a real explosion of flavour, with wonderful textures...

Super Green Pesto with Courgette Tagliatelle

If you are obsessed with the Twittersphere like I am, you may have come across the #30wayswithveg competition hosted by Rachel’s blog from Demuth’s Vegetarian Cookery School. I am proud and humbled to say that Independent Kitchen was one of 8 competition winners, and I won a magnificent mandolin from The Foodie Bugle. I have wanted a mandolin for a while so I was very excited to receive the prize, so thank you both! I have been dreaming...
BBQ Pulled Jackfruit

BBQ Pulled Jackfruit

BBQ pulled jackfruit is a classic vegetarian/ vegan alternative to BBQ pulled pork. Jackfruit is the largest tree-borne fruit in the world, and is native to South and South East Asia. The ripened jackfruit is sweet and can be used in desserts, however this recipe calls for unripe jackfruit. The unripe fruit is popular in curries and salads due to it’s ‘meaty’ texture and mild flavour. It is excellent for soaking up flavours, and when slow...
