My Name Is Spice

Chickpea crepes aka Socca with vegetable fillings

Imogen Taylor - Sunday, July 24, 2016



Wanna make the easiest vegan, gluten free, dairy free pancakes ever? Howabout adding water to chickpea flour and stirring till you have a paste. Allow it to rest before adding to the pan. cook till golden then flip. i have added one of my spice mixes which accounts for the added colour.

Add your choice of vegetable filling (think; mushrooms, potatoes, grated courgette, roasted vegetables)... garnish as you see fit.



Beetroot carpaccio with walnut cheese quenelles and microgreens

Imogen Taylor - Sunday, July 24, 2016



These were great fun to make. I have marinated the beetroot slices (use a mandolin), then quenelled the walnut/cashew cheese and sat them on top of the beetroot carpaccio.

The walnut cheese is a variation on the cashew cheese which uses cashew nuts, lemon juice, a dash of miso paste plus some nutritional yeast, salt and pepper. To this I add equal quantity walnuts to cashews. If the "cheese" is too tart; add a squirt of maple syrup to balance the flavour..

Garnish with micro-greens. Wonderful vegan finger food!!  







Aubergine Roulade with a Moroccan spicy rice filling

Imogen Taylor - Sunday, March 27, 2016



I have made these little eggplant roulades and served them on a bed of Moroccan-jewelled rice. I have added diced peaches and scattered some toasted hazelnuts to set this dish a-wagging!!

The rice is spiced with the famous Moroccan "Ras el Hanout" spice blend (this particular one is from my own range); lending the dish an exotic flavour.





Using up leftovers..

I cooked these potatoes cos I had a spicy tomato sauce already made from the previous night, and some corn cobs and beautiful organic kale in the fridge; and I thought the sauce would pull the various elements together.

I have blanched a large bunch of kale; tossed the kale in evoo, and piled the potatoes on top.

The avocado was a last minute "find", and the pretty leaves are sorrel.
