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!

Waste Not, Want Not

In these recessionary times blah blah yawn yadda yadda.

Anyway, it's not cool to waste food anymore - if it ever was, that is.  Today's challenge was for new and interesting ways with leftovers.  I got some good ones that I'll be trying out myself.  I especially like today's rockstar winner, which is this:

"Left over rice salad: add peas, finely chopped celery, chopped walnuts, grated ginger, garlic, dress with sesame oil and sherry."

And today's rockstar - a newbie, who hopefully won't be a one-hit-wonder - is @juxtabook! Thanks for that one, it's really unusual.  :)

Tomorrow's challenge is for baked goods - cakes, tarts, bread, muffins, cookies - anything baked.

Remember, if you try any of the recipes I'd love to hear about it.  I'm also collecting all kinds of recipes all the time, not just the daily challenge ones.

By the way, the running total is now 815 - not too shabby. ;)  The goal of 1200 is really starting to look achievable!

Sorry for the belated bloggage tonight, I'll see you all tomorrow. :)
