Gazpacho

Gazpacho

This gazpacho is simple to make, as with any raw dish – it really is what you put in, so in particular choose the olive oil, vinegar, and tomato juice carefully. Excellent with olive bread, a white wine, and some manchego cheese.

Last of the Summer Lime

Last of the Summer Lime

I wanted to make a cookie for summer. So I made these on my last Friday off of the summer and the pun name was just a bonus. A vegan sugar cookie with bright strawberry flavour with flecks of lime.

Pan Tomate (Tomato Bread)

Pan Tomate (Tomato Bread)

One of my favourite foods. My mind was blown when I saw it served at our hotel breakfast buffet on our last trip to Spain. I struggled to make it using the traditional catalunya method and then discovered how I’m sure they do it in the restaurants.

Giant Sautee Pan Pasta

Giant Sautee Pan Pasta

A simple pasta dish great for a weeknight supper, adapted from an Anna Jones classic. It’s filling, surprisingly creamy and a flexible recipe that’s easy to modify.

Walkin’ Biscuits (Cookies)

Walkin’ Biscuits (Cookies)

Low sugar healthier snack cookies that are thankfully quick and easy to make because they quickly go missing. Based on the recipe from Yummy Toddler Food – this is a really forgiving recipe and very adaptable. Includes a chocolate variation. nom.

Vegan Parmesan

Vegan Parmesan

A great topping for our weekly or so vegan meals, also tasty right out of the jar. I may or may not sneak a spoonful while walking from the table back to the fridge.

Fancy Toddler Crackers

Fancy Toddler Crackers

A fancier take on the simple toddler cracker recipe, with just a couple bonus ingredients that you do. They do have a slightly nicer flavour, but are not quite as simple, just due to how many ingredients involved, so I don’t make them quite as often.

Vegan Maccy Cheese

Vegan Maccy Cheese

A hybrid of Isa Chandra Moskovitz’s Broccoli Mac & Cheese and America’s Test Kitchen’s Vegan Nacho Cheese Dip. What I’ve done here is basically double the amount of sauce by adding a medium potato blended past recognition, and some coconut oil.

Pressed Halloumi Sandwich

Pressed Halloumi Sandwich

My hommage to the Pressed Halloumi sandwhich from a little take away that I think is now long gone, in Tenleytown DC.

Zingy Lemon Glitters

Zingy Lemon Glitters

Based on Isa Chandra Moskovitz’s “Citrus Glitters” I’ve added candied ginger and narrowed it down to just lemon zest. This is basically a vegan take on old fashioned sugar cookies, and could easily be adapted to any flavour you like.
