My Name Is Spice

Sweet potato patties with nectarine salsa

Imogen Taylor - Thursday, February 02, 2017
I have made these patties with cooked millet, roasted kumera (sweet potato), spices plus cooked chickpeas. Blitz till well combines in a food processor.

They are vegan; the millet is very binding so no need for egg! The salsa incorporates nectarine, cucumber, apricot, cherry tomatoes and fresh herbs and is the perfect accompaniment to the delicious millet patties.

Comfort food at its best!


Wholemeal Chapattis with homemade vegan coriander pesto

Imogen Taylor - Saturday, December 17, 2016

This was a cheat's dish since I bought the chapattis rather than making them; and had already made the pesto for something else..

Actually I was between meals and needed a snack (I don't really keep set meal times).

So all that was required was to prepare the cucumber ribbons, and a meal was at hand! Healthy eating is so easy if you keep a few spreads/pestos/marinades/spice-pastes in the fridge, ready to go



Cauliflower pakoras with chilli sambal

Imogen Taylor - Sunday, July 24, 2016


Why has it taken me so many years to cook pakoras when I have been eating them my whole adult life? These are Cauliflower pakoras; I have par-cooked cauliflower florets before dipping them in the chickpea batter which I have spiced with my new "Sri Lankan spice mix". I have served them with a chilli sambal. 

For the batter; chickpea flour, salt and water. (baking powder is optional). Whisk till you have a thick batter. Adjust with more water or more flour according to desired consistency.



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.
