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...

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...

Our house is currently a building site. This was fine for a while, until those pesky builders started meddling in my/my Mum and Dad's kitchen. I mean come on, I have vegetables to chop, hummus to make, falafel to eat. So for the last few days, it has either meant eating out, having ready meals, or coming up with quick easy meals that don't require time nor fresh ingredients to prepare. Now, I'm all for soaking and preparing dried pulses, not only is it a more economical way of getting...

What a cracking way to kick off your plant based day this buckwheat porridge is. We all know that porridge is one of the best ways to start one's day, but by mixing and matching your grain and choice of (nut) milk you can transform a breakfast we once had because we thought we should to something we have because we want. This Buckwheat Porridge will keep you well and truly sated until lunchtime; I mean I'm still full from it now, and I write this a few days later! Ok fine, I...

Welcome to the first recipe post here at Tofu and Tempeh. Like the 22nd of November 1963 or the 9th of November 1989, I think it's unlikely you'll forget where you were on this historic day! How curious, it seems all the major events of the world fall in November! Anyway, enough nonsense, let's talk borlotti shall we. If there is a more beautiful bean in the world, then I haven't seen it and let me tell you, my pulse consumption is off the charts. They can be hard to come by...
