Orange, fennel, and saffron steamed tofu in a bowl of hot vegetable broth

Orange, fennel, and saffron steamed tofu with a side of steamed rice or quinoa is one of the most beautifully healthy dinners I know of. I love this dish for so many reasons; You can whip it up in 30 minutes, making it the perfect mid-week meal (and yet it tastes like something you’ve slaved over for hours); It has such complex and delicious flavours while still being extremely light, […]

Coconut & Satay Broccoli Soup

By Silvia Morris Sunday, 24 March 2019
Coconut and satay broccoli soup, with a drizzle of olive oil, beer nuts, and coriander, served in a blue freckled bowl, surrounded by crusty bread and half of a fresh lime

This coconut and satay broccoli soup is creamy yet light, with fragrant and nutty satay flavours, and a touch of zesty lime. I’ve recently developed an addiction to snacking on raw broccoli dipped in satay sauce. I was trying to work out how to get this moreish flavour combination into a recipe when I came across this idea! Next time someone asks where you get your calcium and protein from […]

Three pulled jackfruit gyros with lemon, dairy-free yoghurt and salad, served with lemon wedges on a wooden chopping board

If you think that eating a plant-based diet means that you can’t eat gyros any more – think again! Just because I’m vegan, that’s not to say I don’t like them. I just like mine ethically made, and these delicious, extra-smoky pulled jackfruit gyros with smokey BBQ sauce certainly deliver. It’s mind-blowing how much the texture and flavour of pulled jackfruit tastes like real meat. I season it with my special […]

When I first ate these spicy, crispy tofu skewers with kiwi, peach, and mint salsa, I exclaimed to my husband, “this is the best crispy tofu I’ve ever eaten!”, and that’s the honest truth. If you’re someone who doesn’t like tofu because you think it’s bland or you don’t like the texture, I promise you, you just haven’t had tofu that is cooked perfectly yet. Without seasonings and the proper […]

Pavlovafaba (aquafaba meringues) garnished with whipped coconut cream, cherries, and lychees on a gunmetal ceramic plate

When I first heard that you could make meringues from the liquid in a can of chickpeas (aquafaba meringues), I couldn’t believe it (and thought it sounded thoroughly unappetising!) – and yet, I had to try it for myself. I whipped up my first can of chickpea liquid and was astounded at how the texture exactly resembled whipped egg whites. I couldn’t even taste the beans at all! Let’s be […]
