Veggie Lasagne

Lasagne is a dish served in many pubs, cafes and restaurants all over the UK. You usually have two options when ordering lasagne - a meaty one which doesn't usually include any veg other than onion and tomato, but has beef mince in the red sauce, or veggie lasagne which has no protein in it, … Continue reading Veggie Lasagne

Cheesy Leek and Potato Pot Pie

When I was creating my Veggie Steak and Ale Pie recipe a few weeks ago I ended up with some left over pastry. It wasn't enough to line another pie tin, but it was enough to top a pot pie. A pot pie to me, (people get very touchy about their pie definitions) is a … Continue reading Cheesy Leek and Potato Pot Pie

Veggie Steak and Ale Pie

It's St. Patrick's Day on the 17th March - the Patron Saint of Ireland, and how better to celebrate than with a recipe involving Guinness? (You do have to put it in the recipe, you can't just drink it while you're cooking. Sorry!) I have been to Ireland many times and sampled all sorts of … Continue reading Veggie Steak and Ale Pie

Cauliflower Cheese

Up North they have Cauliflower Cheese with their roast dinners, gravy and all. And hey, I'm not judging, I have gravy on pizza! But I think it would be a shame to smother this gorgeous, rich, cheesy, creamy version in gravy. This is a luxurious Cauliflower cheese, made with double cream and mature cheddar cheese. … Continue reading Cauliflower Cheese

Of lazing about in your pyjamas all day and watching films? Me to! It's been great, but - sigh … Continue reading Veggie Mince for Tatties

Grown Up Mac and Cheese

Mac and cheese is a perfect dish to serve at this time of year. It's really easy to make, it's warm, filling, comforting, and feels just a little bit naughty. I like mac and cheese, but I can't eat much of it, I find it quite rich and sickly; and after a few mouthfuls, a … Continue reading Grown Up Mac and Cheese

Pumpkin and Red Pepper Soup

I make Pumpkin soup every October, I love it. It's really easy to make, tasty, comforting and this recipe makes a big batch which I freeze in portions and work my way through throughout the month. There is a great pumpkin soup recipe in my Vegetarian Cookery book (see my About page for more info) … Continue reading Pumpkin and Red Pepper Soup
