Dal with rice is almost the staple Indian traditional dish. Sometimes served as a soup, sometimes as a dish, this thicker version is a meal in itself. Dalicious!
Delightful and healthy dish. Was a very popular dish at the vegan restaurant we once owned, where it was served with a delicious dollop of vegan mock sour creme on top.
Tempeh (or Tempe) is an Indonesian food, made from soy beans that we should all probably be eating more of. Cooked in a satay sauce, this dish is as tasty as it is healthy.
An Italian rice dish, this is perfect for a cold winters night
Showing the Blues Brothers for some friends, I wanted to do some classical soul food. Collard Greens looked healthy and easy to make oil free. A quick search online said to use kale as a substitute, so here you are.
I was thinking about how I hadn't had one of my favourite salad's in many years one night when planning a dinner on the weekend. I took the next day off from work and lo and behold I happened to switch the telly on during a cooking show in which they were making the sort of bean salad I was thinking of. I've made a few changes but I still call it Geoff's Bean Salad.
This was the first cookbook that I really got into after I became vegan.
It doesn't rely on mockmeats, the recipes are not too easy (ie aimed at someone who doesn't know how to make toast), but not too hard (someone who wants to spend all day in the kitchen).
The chillis are fantastic, the Indonesian tempeh stew is my go to to convert people to tempeh and the Banana spice pancakes have won me many friends.
Solid cookbook, and one you can work your way through and build your confidence with cooking.
