An easy and low calorie vegetarian Chinese curry, just like my favourite Chinese chip shop makes! The perfect fakeaway.
If you’re reading this, you either know exactly what I mean by ‘chip shop Chinese curry’, or if you’re not a fellow Brit, you may have no clue. Hopefully by the end of this post, you’ll understand what I’m talking about!
Breaded mushrooms are one of those things that I always order if I spot them on the menu in a restaurant – especially if they’re served with plenty of garlic mayo for dipping. Juicy roasted mushrooms in a crunchy, crispy coating – who could resist?!
I made this simple homemade version in my Tefal Actifry. Over the next few months, I’ll be showing you how to use an Actifry to cook delicious and healthy dishes that bring different levels of ‘wow factor’. This is a ‘level one’ recipe. It’s still absolutely delicious, but it’s nice and simple – a hearty and healthy well-known dish.
These easy Bombay potatoes are a simple and healthy side dish with tons of flavour – perfect to serve alongside your favourite Indian curry!
I don’t share side dishes here too often, but that’s mostly just because I’m often pretty boring with them – plain rice, salad, garlic bread, roasted veggies… I rarely get creative, and usually put my efforts into the main part of my meal instead. But I do think side dishes deserve to get a bit more love every now and then, and these easy Bombay potatoes are just the thing! They’re really easy to prepare, and will lift your Indian meal to the next level.
I don’t make veggie burgers too often. I always think of them as being a bit of a faff, to be honest – so when I decided to make these cheesy lentil burgers, I knew my aim would be to make them as straightforward and easy to make as I possibly could, while still being completely delicious – and I succeeded! These lentil burgers were thoroughly, thoroughly enjoyable.
The day I made them, we ate them for lunch and again for dinner, and didn’t mind one bit.
A super simple vegetarian dinner in just 15 minutes! This halloumi piccata is an irresistible mixture of lemon, butter and capers, served over salty halloumi cheese.
Apologies for the third halloumirecipe in as many weeks! I seem to be going through a halloumi phase at the moment. It’s lasted about 10 years so far. No more halloumi until at least next week, I promise.
I just couldn’t wait to share this halloumi piccata recipe. If you’re a fan of garlic, butter, and cheese, you will love this easy 15 minute dinner.
This one pot vegan jambalaya is an easy dinner that only needs one pan! It’s packed with spicy rice, beans and veggies – healthy and delicious.
I know I’m a bit of a cheese fiend, but sometimes I really do just want a delicious vegan meal to make me feel good. This one pot vegan jambalaya is just the thing – plenty of veggies, hearty beans and rice, and lots of spice. It makes you feel good from the inside out.
If you hate washing dishes, you need this bumper collection of vegetarian one pot dinners! Maximum flavour, minimum cleaning.
I love cooking, but washing up has got to be one of the most tedious kitchen jobs there is. I used to spend a good 30 minutes every day washing dishes, ending up with wrinkly fingertips and an aching back. Even after we bought a dishwasher a couple of years ago (truly life-changing!), I still hate creating lots of dirty dishes – it’s so irritating when you cook one meal, and the dishwasher is immediately full.
If you feel the same as I do, this collection of vegetarian one pot dinners is for you! You won’t need multiple pans, no food processor or mixing bowl, nothing needs to be cooked separately… at most, you’ll need a chopping board and knife, and one frying pan or saucepan to cook in.
What about side dishes?
Most of these recipes are true one pot dinners, but a few of them are photographed with some sort of side dish (such as a curry served with rice).
Don’t worry – I’ve made sure that all of these meals would be great served on their own as well, or with a no-prep side dish like salad or bread. For example, a chilli is just as good served with tortillas for dipping instead of rice, and a curry is great with poppadoms, both of which can be eaten straight out of a packet – no extra dishes needed!
Or, you can sacrifice one extra pan to cook something else on the side if you prefer.
Lazy people unite – let’s make some vegetarian one pot dinners!
This lentil and halloumi curry is really straightforward to make, and absolutely full of flavour – halloumi curry is a revelation!
Have you ever tried halloumi in a curry? Turns out, it’s flipping amazing. I usually use halloumi in Mediterranean-style dishes (it is a Cypriot cheese, after all), but it works seriously well in this easy lentil and halloumi curry. If you think paneer in a curry is good… halloumi is even better.
A simple guide to how to stock a vegetarian pantry – all the store cupboard items you’ll need to have on hand to allow you to make a tasty vegetarian meal any day of the week.
If you’ve had your own kitchen for years, you probably already have a well-stocked pantry, and you already know what sorts of ingredients you use often. But if you’re new to cooking or new to vegetarianism, or perhaps you’ve only just moved out on your own, you might be wondering how to stock a vegetarian pantry – what sorts of things are the must-haves that you’ll probably want to keep in your cupboards at all times?
