About Me

My photo
Three and a half years ago I became vegetarian. Three and a half weeks ago, anticipating a certain health diagnosis at any time, I also gave up all added sugar in my diet. My mother is of a certain generation and, although a very good cook, struggles to know what to offer guests with specific dietary restrictions. She once had a vegetarian and a coeliac for dinner at the same time, and nearly lost her reason! So, the idea for this blog was born. Every recipe that features here will be vegan (and, obviously, vegetarian), gluten free, sugar free, lactose and dairy free, and suitable for people on a low sodium diet. That's right, you read that correctly. Even if you have guests with each of these restrictions coming to the same meal, everything here is safe for them. And, before you expect weird and wonderful ingredients to make an appearance, everything I'm using can be bought in larger branches of all major supermarkets - you don't even need to visit health food stores. Try the recipes and tell me what you think!

Time for a Quickie

Happy Monday all!  Hope you all had a great weekend.

I met with Medecins sans Frontieres this morning and they're very excited about this project - and impressed, too, at the incredible recipes that people have managed to get into 140 characters!

Today saw another milestone too; I've now gathered 602 recipes, which puts me just past the half-way mark to my goal of 1,200! W00t!

Now, onto today's rockstar.  If you remember, the challenge I set on Friday was for quick recipes for time-poor people; meals that could be prepared in 20 mins or less.  I got some lovely ones, and the winner is this:

"Combine creme fraiche, mustard, tarragon, stir into cooked gnocchi with sauted chestnut mushroom, asparagus. Add grated parmesan."

And Monday's rockstar is - @christinemosler! Well done Christine, it sounds delicious. :)

Now for tomorrow's challenge.  Since I feel rather like celebrating today, your challenge for tomorrow is party food - for kids or grown-ups.  As ever, the best one earns its owner rockstar status for the day. Get your silly party hats on.... ;)
