Nacho Crusted Tofu Bowl

Cheesy tortilla chip-crusted tofu, cumin black beans & corn, pico de gallo and guacamole, with a drizzle of vegan crema. The ultimate nacho bowl, perfect for a weeknight or weekend meal and a great dish to make for friends and family. 

Packed full of flavour and texture this bowl is so delicious - it's also full of fibre, protein and healthy fats, as well as vitamin C, E and some iron and calcium too. The tofu is sliced, dipped in seasoned and thickened soy milk before being coated in crushed vegan cheese flavour tortillas and baked to perfection. The rest of the dish comes together in the time the tofu is in the oven, the beans only need a short cook and the dips simply just chopping and mixing, giving you a wonderfully delicious meal in under 30 minutes.

Grilled Corn Salad

A summery Mexican-inspired salad with grilled corn, tossed in a sweet and spicy chipotle, maple & lime dressing, with quick-pickled red onion and crumbled vegan feta.

I love summer salads like this - packed with smoky flavour from grilling and bright zingy dressings that bring the whole thing to life. This is the perfect accompaniment for a BBQ, picnic or even some tacos.

Edamame Pesto & Tempeh Soba Noodles

Creamy Asian-inspired pesto made from edamame, aromatics and fresh herbs tossed through soba noodles, with spicy chili miso grilled tempeh and tenderstem broccoli.

Tempeh, if you haven't tried it before is made from soybeans and is a traditional Indonesian food; the whole beans are pressed together and fermented to form patties that have a slightly nutty and sour taste and are great for absorbing flavour. Tempeh itself is quite soft, so like tofu I love to marinade it then grill or roast it to give it a little more texture. This marinade of miso and Chinese chili oil is so flavourful and the perfect addition to the fresh pesto noodles. Chinese chili oil tends to have a few extra ingredients than regular chili oil, like garlic, soy beans or other spices, so use your favourite one in this dish for that extra flavour punch!

Smoky Chickpea & Avocado Salad

Smoky pan-roasted chickpeas with leafy greens, radishes, cucumber and avocado, with a creamy hemp seed dressing.

A quick and easy summer salad - use whatever leafy greens or fresh veg you have on hand. Salad leaves and radishes are actually really easy to grow, I've got a few boxes on my patio with some fresh veggies and herbs in, which I used for this recipe. Being able to pick fresh veg to cook with is one of the best parts about summer in my opinion and so rewarding!

Vegan Seafood Linguine

Vegan seafood-style linguine - a creamy, garlic and white wine linguine with mixed variety mushrooms, samphire and artichoke hearts. A delicious summer dish - great for sharing with company, for a weeknight meal or a special occasion!

Made with flavours that would typically be paired with seafood like samphire, capers and parsley with briny artichokes and mixed variety mushrooms for some added texture. All tossed in a creamy garlic, mustard and white wine sauce for a vegan 'seafood' style linguine.
