Vegan Beetroot and Vanilla Sorbet Recipe

Vegan Beetroot and Vanilla Sorbet Recipe

Looks good doesn't it?

I love sorbet, don't you? It's a great vegan option and usually lower in calories than ice cream while still giving you that velvety iced treat. I quite like to serve a scoop of fruity sorbet with a dark chocolate ice cream although I'm also happy to eat the sorbet solo and often order it in restaurants. It's a refreshing end to a meal.

Veggie Haggis & Apple Bedfordshire Clangers

Veggie haggis & apple Bedfordshire clangers cut into to how the savoury and sweet fillings

Bedfordshire Clangers


Have you heard of them ? 

No? I'd never heard of them before last week. I've been following the Great British Bake Off  (did you see my roast vegetable, pasta and cream cheese pizza for Italian week and my dark chocolate magic pudding for pudding week?) and they tie in with this week's theme.

At the end of each week the next week's challenge is previewed. This week the theme is forgotten bakes or shall we say old fashioned bakes. like these Bedfordshire clangers.

Vegan Roast Vegetable, Pesto and Cream Cheese Pizza Recipe


I usually make my own pizza dough when I'm making a pizza from scratch, but I noticed my local supermarket have a fresh ready rolled pizza dough in their chilled section beside the pastry and decided to give it a go. 

Now I'm not saying I only ever make pizza from scratch, do any of us? 

Maybe if I was a stay at home mum. Nope, probably not even then. Each time I make pizza dough I think I should always make it fresh, but then reality kicks in.

I mostly buy chilled or frozen pizza for quick midweek meals and just pile them high with extra vegetables before cooking them and actually they are pretty good. Not quite as good as this freshly roasted vegetable, pesto and cream cheese pizza, but pretty good for a quick meal.

Aubergine and Onion Masala (a vegan eggplant crock-pot curry recipe)

Aubergine and Onion Masala (a vegan eggplant crock-pot curry recipe)


I don't make many curries. Well actually that's not true, I make dal nearly every week, but I don't often make any other curries or Indian side dishes. We used to eat a lot more Indian food, but Cooper isn't keen (although he loves dal) and Graham never seems to be in the mood for curry. Today I made this Aubergine and Onion Masala and it must have been the smell as Graham was tempted by it and thought it tasted great. Cooper had a snack before heading out to Boys Brigade so he hasn't tried it yet, but I have some dal at the ready just in case.

You can't win them all.

Rich Mushroom and Lentil Ragu Recipe

Rich Mushroom and Lentil Ragu Recipe


I told you this was pasta week. 

Oh did you miss my last post? I realised I was posting three pasta recipes this week. A roasted vegetable pea pasta bake, a creamy spinach and basil pasta and this rich ragu which I served with tagliatelle.

Don't worry we have eaten other meals in between. We haven't just lived on pasta this week. We've had carrot, lentil and spinach soup, vegetable packed pizza and an aubergine dish with potatoes and asparagus. One night it all went to pot and we gave up and ate chips (fries my American friends) from the chip shop with quickly heated baked beans. Yes, even food bloggers have nights like that.
