Leek & Potato Soup

Leeks! Why did I not try these before now? It is the question I askedĀ  myself when I bought them and made this soup the first time last month. They are visually amazing with wonderful layers and colours, so fresh and vibrant, just like the colours of new life coming up in Spring. Then there... Continue Reading →

Scrambled Tofu

Tofu is fairly recent regular addition to my kitchen /cooking. It is very similar to paneer, which is an Indian cheese that does not have any particular taste and can be used for sweet and savoury recipes. As a result I use tofu more regularly. It absorbs all the flavours and hence makes it very... Continue Reading →

Vegetable Pasta

If you are trying to eat healthy and wish to have a filling meal then some pasta with vegetables is a good idea. When I was a student one of my staple diets was pasta, with a simple tomato sauce and sometimes the odd dollop of Greek yoghurt. Now I am much more adventurous with... Continue Reading →

Vegetable Buns

My father is a free mason, and when he used to go to the lodge, this is one of the more popular dishes that he would take as the vegetarian option. I remember my older sister helping our mother to make them for him to take. It is a good dish to serve as a... Continue Reading →

We tend to use the basic mix of vegetables similar to what is put in samosa filling - potato, carrot, peas, sweet corn, and onion, however you... Continue Reading →

A good filling healthy snack, that is all what we need sometimes instead of turning to the usual potato crisps or other fast foods. I made this simple recipe for Avocado Toast after a conversation with one of my cousin sisters. She had it whilst on holiday in Australia. When I was growing up in... Continue Reading →

Sweetcorn Soup

If you look at the complete menu for a Chinese meal in our house, then you see sweetcorn soup, spring rolls, and stir fry with either rice or noodles. This was also the standard order when ever we used to go out to eat in Malawi. That used to be the set menu we would... Continue Reading →

Ants on Trees

When I was growing up in Malawi, we used to go to a Chinese restaurant and this was one of the items we used to always have. I don't know why it has this name but I guess that is part of the novelty of having this fun snack / starter / side dish. After... Continue Reading →

Vegetarian stir fry

When we first used to make stir fry or Chinese sweet & sour stir fry in Malawi, we would use specific vegetables (cabbage, french beans, carrots etc.) and make the sauce at home. We would have it either with plain rice or fried rice. Then when we came here we saw the supermarkets with pre... Continue Reading →
