Cavelo Nero, herb and walnut pestoCavelo nero is the Italian name translated to black cabbage, like all cabbage it can be eaten raw, it's deep earthy flavour blitzed with different herbs and toasted walnuts creates a vibrant green pesto, perfect to use with pasta, as a salad dressing, a dip or as Nigella suggested, "Divine! Would be so good dolloped into a roasted and split sweet potato"Liver and onionsLiver and onions was a weekly event when I was a child, my mum used ketchup, OXO cubes and Bisto gravy browning, this is as near to her recipe as I could get.
Serve with mashed potatoes and a green vegetable of your choice.Roasted carrot, courgette and chickpea salad, rose harissa, lime and mintThis middle eastern inspired salad came about after a glut of courgettes were delivered to us from a neighbour and we had some carrots that needed using in the fridge. Rose Harissa is an amazing chilli paste that can be used in many ways, once you start using it you'll never stop.Red Dragon PieNamed red dragon pie because the Chinese call adzuki beans 'red dragon', these beans are packed with goodness, protein, fibre, potassium, magnesium, Vitamin B6 and iron.
A delicious potato topped savoury umami rich pie, perfect for a meat free dinner.Sweet Onion, fennel and tomato lasagneAn indulgent vegetarian lasagne, if you use quality ingredients the blend of onion, fennel and tomato is magical.Carrot, sweet potato and ginger curryWe love a curry but they are just not the same without the onion and garlic however with this recipe you can still appreciate other flavours typically associated with curries such as ginger, cumin and turmeric. You can amend the chilli content to suit your preference, add more or less, the tamarind sets a tart tone and the fish sauce adds a salty umami element, you can get vegetarian alternatives if you wanted to make this curry vegan.Kimchi hummusHummus Kimchi, Korean style hummus, I'm not sure how best to describe this, it was simply born out of a fridge forage of which we had some chickpeas left over from making a curry, half a jar of homemade kimchi and some gochujang paste so why not mix it all up and see what happens? Inevitably it turned out absolutely delicious, who would of thought about blending tahini with kimchi?
