Vegan Irish Stew

By Liz Evers on Thu, 12 Aug, 2021 - 11:51

This vegan riff on Irish stew is great warming, nutritious comfort food and can be easily adapted depending on what’s in season. Stock flavoured with tamari, nutritional yeast, bay leaves and lots of thyme (fresh or dried), along with potatoes, onions and garlic form the base (I add leeks and celery too if I have them). I like to include vegan sausages (with a robust texture that won’t disintegrate in the pot) and lentils (tinned, or dried and rehydrated by pre-cooking).

Beginners Flavour Larder for the Aspiring Vegan

By Liz Evers on Fri, 6 Aug, 2021 - 17:45

After years of relying on dairy to enhance my vegetarian cookery, I’ve had to learn lots of new flavour tricks with new and sometimes unfamiliar ingredients on my journey toward veganism

If you are also embarking on this path, the ingredients below will have you well-stocked to take on a broad range of soups, salads, sauces and tasty garnishes to lift your dishes.

Vegan Chocolate Cheesecake Bites with Homemade Strawberry Jam

By LauraHB on Wed, 19 Aug, 2020 - 00:29

I’ve always had this impression that jam and jelly were incredibly tricky to make. I’ve never properly used pectin, and any discussion of disinfecting and sealing Ball jars provokes anxiety. And yet, I’m well versed at compotes and fruit sauces to top pancakes and French toast in the morning! And they’re not so different. The ease with which every contestant on the Great British Bake Off whips up a jam for their cakes or trifles inspires me, and I’ve wanted...

Recipe: Vegan Tempeh and Cranberry Pot Pie

I split a weekly CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) share - a veg box! - with my husband and another friend. I love that it gives us local produce throughout the year, connects us to the landscape and the seasons where we live, and the farmers who provide our food, and is much more environmentally friendly than getting all our fruit & veg from the grocery store. 

In our last November share, we were given a surprise bag of...

Veganuary - recipes, inspiration and more

By jane.easton@blu... on Mon, 5 Jan, 2015 - 07:34The lovely folk at www.veganuary.com have relaunched last year’s site and it’s even better (and bigger) - and of course, it’s free. Whether you’ve already dipped your toes in the waters of vegan life or want to give it a go, this is a great resource. It may be that you want to try the entire month as a vegan or perhaps try a more gradual approach, eg Vegan Monday (or Tuesday or…) It’s completely flexible.
