When it comes to sharing veggie burgers, nothing brings me more joy that seeing the look of delight on my friends faces when they take that first bite. Not only do I want people to be transformed on a magical journey of deliciousness when they eat my food, but I also want my burgers to [...]
Hands up who is feeling the need for some super healthy feel-good comfort food! Today's recipe is exactly the sort of thing I might make when creating cuisine for a large group of people on retreat. It's nurturing, delicious, nourishing and keeps everyone delightedly happy. It also works well if you are cooking for one, [...]
This year I'll be having Christmas Dinner with a small group of friends and family. We'll all be enjoying a table filled with totally plant-based, gluten-free, healthy deliciousness. Consciously preparing cuisine, with love, means that we can truly celebrate in style and know that we are honouring other sentient life in the process... Of course [...]
Less washing up, gets my vote every time! Easy, one pot meals are a regular feature for me at home. One pot 'everything in the pan together' means that all the flavours have a wild time, whilst we explore which ingredients want to dance together. I feel the ingredients 'calling to me' each in their [...]
A curry is a dish of food pieces cooked in a richly, spiced sauce. Every region of the world has it's own style and technique, often inspired by whatever is available locally. Unlike much of the world's population, I feel incredibly fortunate to be able to buy ingredients from all over the world in my [...]
There’s a bit of an art to creating a delicious veggie burger. For me it needs to have a delicious dance of flavours, an exciting dense texture, moist on the inside with a little, thin layer of crunch on the outside . Holding together nicely is a bit of a must - and I am [...]
Traditionally, a quiche is an open, pastry flan dish, made with eggs, milk, a wheat-based crust and filled with whatever is in season. Of course, here at Trinity's Kitchen, I don't do anything 'traditionally', instead, creating my cuisine with dairy-free, egg-free and wheat-free ingredients. I must admit, 'back in the day', I used to love [...]
Falafel originated in the Middle East and has since become a popular alternative to meat. These days, it makes a regular appearance in fast food trucks and health food outlets all over the western world. It is typically deep fried, although I’ve always opted to create a much healthier baked or grilled alternative.
The recipe I am sharing here today, totally excites my taste buds with a tantalizing medley of warming spices. This ‘Thai Coconut Curry’, uses kaffir lime for a tangy kick; cardamom pods for an exquisite burst of sweet, spicy excitement; coriander, turmeric and lots of other delicious things. I use creamed coconut to give it a full tropical coconut experience (see below for more about the coconut that works best for this recipe).
I adore finding new and healthful ways to incorporate beetroot into my weekly diet. Beetroot is often over-looked as an 'I-don't-know-what-to-do-with-it' type food. Well worthy of our attention, it is ridiculously healthy - right up there with the healthiest of foods.
I've been making 'stir-steamed' veggie dishes for quite some time now. It's our super easy, healthy, 'fast food' go to meal. If I serve this with gluten free noodles, then I can literally have it on the table ready to eat within 10 minutes of deciding to make it. It's that quick! It's a bit of a take on the traditional chinese stir-fry, except the only thing that is fried is one quick minute of garlic. The vegetables are essentially steamed in a very small amount of water, right there in the pan.
A super healthy gluten-free, vegan seed roast loaf made with a base of sunflower and pumpkin seeds and carrots.
Here it is - my "Chickpea (garbonzo bean) & Mushroom Burger" recipe. This is an excellent way to enjoy a super healthy, high-protein, vegan, gluten-free meal, whilst using optimal plant-based ingredients...
When most people think of creamy sauces, they usually imagine dairy milk, yoghurt or cream as an essential ingredient for a lip-lickin', smooth buttery result. Seldom do people imagine... erm, cauliflower! Having eaten a plant-based diet for the best part of 20 years, I've developed a real passion for finding out what new dishes I [...]
Falafel is a traditional deep fried middle eastern dish. We enjoy a wonderfully healthy version by adding a few extra things like turmeric and sweet potato and bake them in the oven instead. I like to add turmeric, because it complements the other flavours so well and gives a gorgeous yellow glow to the plate. [...]
This gluten free, vegan lasagne is a fantastic alternative to the meaty, dairy laden versions. It's tasty, filling and full of healthy protein and nutritional goodness. In this version I use twirly rice fusilli pasta instead of flat lasagne pasta sheets. You can, of course, buy pasta sheets and use them instead. Gluten free pasta [...]
