The cauliflower is an interesting one. It's the type of vegetable from one's childhood; just boiled as an afterthought, left till last on your plate, but forced to eat before leaving the table. As you take a sip of water for Dutch courage you reluctantly nibble away, until the ordeal is over, but an ordeal that has resigned your only remaining memories of the meal to that of the faint sense of bitter cabbage hidden in the form of the evil mushy white broccoli pretender. But the cauliflower has had a revival. You'll be...

So I was thinking how despite the name of my blog, a name that would fairly suggest a level of tofu and tempeh based recipes, that I have posted a disappointingly and rather confusing lack of such. To help restore the balance, I come to you with a very fine tofu inspired dish, crispy and golden in its panko shell of which hides the glorious flavour sponge that is tofu within. I give you panko breaded tofu green curry. Enjoy! Panko breaded tofu (serves 2-3) Tofu, 350g Panko, 1/2 cup Brown rice flour, 2 tbsp Non...

To start, I must apologise for the past week where I shamefully neglected my blogging duties. I have let you, my loyal readership down, I have let the good name of tofuandtempeh down and I have let myself down. It's not an exaggeration to say that literally tens of people were affected by this...

N.B. I began developing this recipe around Christmas time and wrote the introduction to this post at the same time*, therefore please excuse the rather belated festive theme. Oh and merry Christmas of course! *and I'm too lazy to something new! As is becoming tradition now, my parents decided to leave their children (apart from my little sister.. the spoilt little..!) for Christmas/Chanukah and head off somewhere sunny for the holiday period. With my brother preferring to spend Christmas with his girlfriend and her family for the second year running, it was once again but...

I have never really understood steamed vegetables. When I see people serve their dinner with what I have always assumed was just a lazy helping of steamed potatoes and carrots, it just seemed like such a waste to me. Fair enough, steaming is usually the optimum cooking method with regard to retaining nutrients that are often lost during the cooking process, but I always try to strike the balance between optimising both flavour and nutrition. But I wanted to give the steamed vegetable a fair shot, and so sought to come up with...

Oh Falafel, how I love thee. Too long living with the mediocrity that is the shop brought falafel, I thought the time had come to have a go at the art of falafellery (haven't checked, but pretty sure falafellery is in the dictionary) myself. The result as compared to the shop brought pretenders really was chalk and (*cashew) cheese (*being a plant based blog and all that!) Once you bite into the crisp shell to find the pillow of spiced chickpea mixture within, you won't be able to eat...

In my quest to make the brussel sprout more than just the butt of jokes in the vegetable world, I bring to you the second recipe in this very mini series of brussel recipes. Today I have for you an Indian Thoran, a coconut based dish usually prepared with cabbage. Left however with the last remaining brussel survivors in my fridge, I thought they may well work in this dish instead...

Now Christmas is but a speck in the recent past, only remnants of the day strewn across houses of the world; torn wrapping paper littering lounges, recycling bins filled to the brim with empty bottles of sherry, and of course, leftover bags of brussel sprouts cluttering the fridges of many a family wilfully obeying the tradition that is the Christmas sprout, despite finding the things almost uneatable! Opening the fridge come boxing day, I spot in a deep crevice of the vegetable drawer a small bag of sprouts, having escaped the attention of I...
