My Name Is Spice

Vindaloo Curry cooked in Clay Pot

Imogen Taylor - Friday, August 25, 2017
I wanted to try cooking this vegan curry in a clay pot; to keep all the vegetables intact, enhance the flavour, and so I wouldn't have to stir it!!!


This is a Vindaloo curry in nature, with cauliflower, carrots, courgettes, eggplant, chillis, onion, garlic, ginger, and a generous whack of Vindaloo paste; plus fresh tomatoes and a tin of coconut cream.


Serve with whole grain rice and a lemon or lime wedge. Super yummmmy!

I like my food to have Big Personality! These were great fun to make; I have roasted the fennel in the oven while pan-frying the felafels.

For the base we have herbed polenta. And on top of the felafel layer is cucumber, then shitake mushrooms, then fresh fennel.

Drizzle with a tasty dressing and you're all set! (Don't they look like little characters)?!


This second dish uses the exact same ingredients; but i have assembled them differently (the following day).

This assemblage would be lovely with a subtle but rich vegetable stock poured into the bowl just prior to serving. Eh oui?


Because it's Summer

Healthy, happy and lively dinner vibe created with garden-fresh vegetables; I have blanched the broccoli and added it to the raw spinach; chickpeas cooked in a vegetable stock, red onion, shredded cucumber, finely shaved pear, along with toasted almonds, pumpkin and sesame seeds.

Dress with an avocado dressing;

1 ripe avocado

juice of 1 large lemon (or 2 smaller lemons)

1 clove garlic

1 generous tsp honey

1 drop cider vinegar (use sparingly so it doesn't dominate)

salt and freshly grated pepper

Blitz in a blender then add some extra virgin olive oil till you have the desired consistency.

Too good!
