The mixture for the filling is a bit like a rich and creamy red pesto with a little kick (which you can alter to your taste of course) and with the lemony breadcrumbs on top, it makes for a delightful alternative roast dinner. Of course it doesn’t have to be a roast – for instance, it would go very nicely with mash potato, chips or a couscous salad.
Although there are a few components to this recipe that you wouldn’t find in a traditional paella, we have experimented loads in the kitchen and found this colourful version, with some added spice and juicy tomatoes. We’ve jam packed in loads of veggies, which makes this dish super colourful (hence the name!)
It’s a little bit sweet, a little bit spicy (but can of course be adjusted to your taste buds), velvety in texture and simply full of goodness!
Mexican food is one of my absolute favourites and enchiladas are up there with the best aren’t they? Comforting, melt-in-the-mouth deliciousness and a great dish to present to a table of hungry friends or family.
When I was a little girl I used to say that Mushroom risotto was my favourite dinner. For years it was. It was mainly because my mum made such a cracking one…
I’m pretty sure I’ve yet to meet someone who doesn’t like daal. There are many different types and varieties of a daal but once you know the essentials, it’s easy to throw one together.
It’s deep umami flavours and “meaty” minced mushroom texture always pleases the crowd…
Cauliflower is another one of those versatile veggies that soaks up flavour and can be transformed into the most delicious of dishes.
This is one of our favourite go-to meals, particularly on a week day when short of time, or if we have an assortment of veg to use up.
I think a creamy pasta dish is one of my all time favourites. Shortly after turning vegan we discovered the incredible cashew and all its uses. (Obviously we’ve always loved a cashew nut, but we had no idea on the versatility of the things!)
