Last Minute Vegan Curry

I'll get straight to the point. This is a recipe for the day you come home late from work, starving, not sure what to make and with little time to make it. It uses spices you probably already have, pantry items most vegans always have on hand, and veggies that come fresh or frozen. The beauty of this recipe is that most of the ingredients can spices can be substituted for what you do have (and if you have fresh garlic and ginger, even better!), as long as you stick with the general recipe structure. Perfect for a cozy night in!
Ingredients

Ingredients

  • 1 tbs extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 brown onion, diced
  • 1/2 tbs garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/2 tsp ground cumin

  • 2 tsp curry powder
  • 1/2 tbs tomato paste

  • 350ml coconut milk
  • 1 vegan stock cube mixed with 250ml hot water

Vegan Caesar Salad with Maple Tempeh and Sesame Parmesan

Years ago, Caesar salads were a regular part of my diet. I recall taking a break from my very first casual job and buying a creamy salad and a strawberry milk and devouring the whole thing. I wonder why my teenage skin was so bad?!
My Vegan Caesar Salad has the same creamy dressing, a cheesy parmesan and a crunchy crouton, but made with far healthier ingredients and without any animal products. The parmesan recipe is a personal favourite of mine, and can be added to any salad, pasta or veggie dish. This recipe is a real party pleaser and is a great introduction to tempeh, too!

Tomato and Black Bean Soup

I'm always inspired to create new soup recipes as the weather gets cooler, but honestly, I could eat this soup all year round. As someone who loves hearty food, I eat soup for two reasons: firstly, to feel warm and full, and secondly, because it provides a solid excuse to eat toast. This ticks both boxes, and is made using delicious black beans, veggies and spices. Make a big batch and store it in the fridge, and have your sourdough ready.
Ingredients

Ingredients

  • 2 tbs extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 brown onion, diced
  • 1/4 jalapeno (or to taste), finely chopped
  • 1 red capsicum, diced
  • 2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/4 tsp cayene pepper
  • 4 sprigs lemon thyme (stems removed)
  • 1 x 400g tin diced tomatoes
  • Squeeze of lemon juice
  • 2 x 425g tin black beans, drained
  • 2 vegetable stock cubes dissolved in 1 litre of water 

To serve

  • Avocado, seeds, tortillas or bread

Strawberry and Coconut Friands

Friands are a familiar fixture at high teas and special events, as a more elegant and refined muffin or cupcake. They are delicate, soft and sweet, usually made with egg whites, almond meal and icing sugar. Fortunately, aquafaba - the brine found in tinned chickpeas - makes a perfect substitute for the fluffy egg whites required to make a standard friand, and this recipe provides a fantastic base for any flavoured friands you like, such as raspberry, pistachio or white chocolate. Your vegan and non-vegan guests will love these, I promise!
Ingredients

Ingredients

  • 80ml aquafaba (the brine found in tinned chickpeas)
  • 150g icing sugar
  • 125g self-raising flour
  • 20g desiccated coconut
  • 50g almond meal
  • 1-2 tsp lemon zest
  • 50ml butter, melted
  • 100g strawberries, quartered 
  • Icing sugar, to dust
