Vegan KFC Coleslaw

Since we’ve been doing our best to #stayathome, we’ve cut down our food shopping to once a week. Which is completely normal, I know. I’m just used to going grocery shopping almost daily. In part because I’m a bit obsessed with cooking with the freshest produce I can get, but also because of my small and very impractically designed fridge. Determined to make space in…

Crunchy Carrot & Apple Salad

I’ve already used the ginger joke on a previous post, so I’m not going to try and make one up about carrots and my red-haired husband on this one. And besides, I can’t. I’m currently sustained by vegetables, crisps and rosé so it’s not possible to write something witty and food related at the same time. At least not for me. At least not now….

Emergency Vegan Kimchi

With only 8 ingredients and 30 minutes of your time, you might just DIY a very delicious vegan kimchi. No Thermomix required. While I could hammer on about the importance of certain measures each of us need to take in light of the COVID-19 situation, I will step off the virtual soap box I’ve been on in the past few days and do something a…

Cream of Broccoli Soup

I don’t know anyone who is as passionate about eating food as my daughter. It’s hard for her to pick a favourite meal because she enjoys eating so many things. Sushi, pasta, pizza, burrito, schnitzel, sashimi, Eggs Royale, kimchi, bulgogi, jjapagetti (which has been upgraded to jjapaguri, thanks to the Oscar winning film, Parasite), shepherd’s pie and fish. And sometimes, being the evil parents that…

Vegan Parmesan

Cheese is my life! Declared my daughter when we were discussing veganism and how we would have to give it up if we were to go 100% plant-based. I don’t feel as strongly about cheese as she does, but I don’t think certain dishes would be as delightful without some salty, melty, regular cheese accompanying them. That being said, I’m all open for alternatives that…

Caramelised Onion Pasta

Caramelised onions. Pasta. Two lovely things on their own but you’ll cook up a surprisingly lovely pasta dish when you combine the two along with a big splash of stock and a generous sprinkle of vegan parmesan cheese. Full disclosure: You’ll need the TM6® for the current deliciousmother version as I use a recipe from the Cookidoo® recipe portal which gives you access to the…

Pea Soup for One

This soup is great for when you’re at home alone with an empty fridge but want something a bit more nutritious than a bread roll filled with half a slice of cheese. We’ve always got a packet or two of frozen peas in the freezer, so I make this a lot when I just can’t be bothered to cook for myself. This recipe yields a…

Vegan Chickpea and Kidney Bean Coconut Curry

When you’re short on time and want to put something warm and nourishing on the table, this is a very quick, easy and budget-friendly curry AND it’s plant-based! It’s a hit with my daughter who usually likes to have some sort of animal protein in her hot meals, so I’m extra pleased to be able to add it to my recipe collection.

Easy-peasy Hummus

We used to buy hummus pretty much every week until I discovered how easy it was to make. Dana Schutz of The Minimalist Baker blog showed me how easy (and tasty) cooking vegan food can be and inspired us to eat more plant-based foods. We aren’t daily meat-eaters, but I never realised how much animal-based products we ate until we tried to go vegan Monday…

Knäckebrot (say: knekka-broht)  = cracker. I think I’ve bought and chowed down about a hundred packets of Dr Karg’s cheese and pumpkin seed crackers since moving to Germany five years ago. I’ve tried many variations from many brands, but Dr Karg is the gold standard when it comes to Knäckebrot. Thanks to my friend Silke, from Happy Cooking Frankfurt, I discovered a cracker of a…
