Keralan Tofu Curry
This is a typical southern Indian style curry made with coconut, tamarind, and sliced green chillies.
The tamarind perfectly balances out the richness of the coconut which tames the heat from the green chillies.
Korean Fried Tofu
Crispy tofu in a spicy Korean Gochujang Sauce.
This is a great Friday night go to which you can prepare in advance.
Make it as spicy as you like by increasing or decreasing the amount of Gochujang.
I use the the word crispy sparingly when describing recipes, as it’s used far to often to describe tofu that, well just isn’t crispy.
I can honestly say however, that by following the technique below, you will have crispy tofu you can use in a variety of dishes. Preparing the tofu is key to obtain a crispy and slightly crumbly texture, method below.
Fideua (Pasta Paella)
Fideua is basically Paella made with Pasta, I’ve been working on this for a while and to be honest it a better dish to veganise than Paella. The thin angel hair pasta more readily absorbs the flavours from the olive oil, saffron and smoked sweet paprika. I think it's down to the toasting of the pasta in olive oil. It’s also quicker than paella to cook and can be finished or even reheated in the oven.
Korean style rice bowl with tofu and Gochujang.
Bibimbap literally translates as mixed rice and is a fantastic method of cooking a healthy dinner or lunch.
This recipe is very flexible, as you can use almost any veggies you have in your fridge. Gochujang is a must for this recipe, the chilli paste is spicy and pungent and makes the dish. Optionally serve with Kimchi. I like lots of different flavours so items can be omitted or added as you require.

If you need something light and clean with a sauce to change the spice level for individual tastes, this is the dish for you. Packed with Asian flavours, fresh vegetables, crispy tofu and udon noodles.

Chana Masala with oven roast potato wedges
We love this dish, packed with flavour with a touch of pungent heat. it's really Healthy comfort food and yes we used those 2 words together in the same sentence.
Wild Mushroom Stroganoff
We have cooked this special recipe in many restaurants we have worked in over the years.
It’s not difficult and you will get the equivalent to a high-quality restaurant dish.
Pumpkin, Spinach & Coconut Curry
Pumpkin is not used very often in the UK so we thought we’d come up with a recipe that not only works but is super delicious too.
This was made with a pumpkin purchased the day after halloween for just 40 pence.
Peanut butter, bean & vegetable stew
If you need something warm and comforting this is just the thing.
We really love this dish, and it's one of our gotos for cold and gloomy winter days.
Hope you enjoy.
