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!

You've Been Kept Stewing!

Hope everyone had a good weekend?

Today's challenge was for stews, of any description. I've received recipes for meat stews, vegetable stews, even stewed fruit. Our total is now at 1076 recipes!

One of the recipes I'll definitely be trying myself is this one:

"Vegetable Stew: 
Sauté onion.Squeeze 1/4 cup grated ginger, add tin toms, chilli paste, boil Cook 5 mins + 2 chopped sweet potatoes & half cauli, 15 mins"

And today's rockstar is @HazelKLarkin - well done, Hazel!

I just want to say as well that I tried this recipe for tzatziki yesterday by @helen_kara:

"Tsatziki: Rub bowl with cut garlic. De-seed and finely chop cucumber. Mix in bowl with Greek yogurt, fresh dill, salt to taste."

It was fantastic - really easy, tasted fabulous. Will be making that again. :)

Now, tomorrow's challenge - as set by the genius who is @rebeccaebrown - is for Food for a Fiver. It can be any sort of food so long as it's a complete meal for four people for £5 or less.  (If in Europe, think €8; if in US, $8; Canada, about $10, etc.)

It's a great suggestion, well done Rebecca. :)

Keep an eye on the list of luminaries to the right of the screen; it's changing daily! Thanks again to #teamtweettreat for all their hard work chasing people up. 

Till tomorrow!
