I’ve been fascinated by uttapam for a long time. Uttapam is a Southern Indian gluten free fermented pizza made from urad dal and rice. The last time I ate this it got me thinking… Could I make an Italian type pizza base using red lentils and oats – a Vegan Lentil Pizza? Was it possible?
Today we have a guest post from Ian @chefvegan – he has a load of great recipes on his YouTube channel – make sure you check him out!
Ian told me his inspiration for this recipe came from fond childhood memories of eating chilli cheese fries at fairs and ballparks. He says “I have been wanting to recreate a vegan recipe of it for a few years now, and when Rachel asked me to contribute I thought it would be really cool to create a chilli cheese fries recipe that ticked the easy, healthy and oil-free boxes in line with her blog’s philosophy”.
Korma is one of my favourite curries. Normally it is quite rich, but this vegan korma curry is lighter and lower in fat than usual, using just enough coconut cream, cashews and plant based yogurt to create the creamy korma sauce.
This simple soup is inspired by a dish we tried from the vegan menu at Raymond Blanc’s Manoir Aux Quat Saisons restaurant for my inlaw’s 50th wedding anniversary. This is a much lighter, low fat version which is perfect during this beginning to 2017! My husband came up with this recipe as we were both obsessed with the flavour of this soup for weeks after our meal!
