Written by McDonald, T.   |  Date 27th of June 2022     If you need a deep, this is a great choice!  The lemon gives it that fresh taste while the chilli and sun dried tomatoes add that extra flavour.  This dish is surprisingly creamy and has a smooth texture.  

Lentil Bolognese

Written by McDonald, T.   |  Date 20th of June 2022     Spaghetti bolognese was one of the first non British dishes I every had.  Therefore, finding a decent vegan substitute was a great relief!  I have tried many variations, but this is one of the best.

Free VFC’s Vegan Chicken product!

Written by McDonald, T.   |  Date 16th of July 2021 After seeing Vegan Fried Chick*n (VFC) on social media and hearing I could get it for free in their promotion, I decided to give it a go.  In short, I am glad that i did! What a burger!  I really fancied a burger over the other two products Chick*n Bites and Popcorn Chick*n, so of to the supermarket I went.  The offer only included a few shops Sainsbury's, Tesco, Vegan Kind and Mighty Plants, so I chose Tesco because it was the only one I could get to on my bike.  On getting home, I prepared the burger and filled out the form for the refund.  Guess what the burger was like?

Written by McDonald, T.   |  Updated 14th of June 2022     Whatever cake you are making, a basic sponge cake is the likely place to start.  This is so easy to whip up in no time at all.  You can alter the flavouring or even add some icing.  Just let you imagination run wild!

Five Bean Salad

Written by McDonald, T.   |  Date 6th of June 2022 This one is so easy to do.  All you need is a tin of five bean salad and salad.  I love this really refreshing meal because it is a bit different.  Notably, the five bean salad usually comes in its own vintager, which is great!  For the vegan salad cream I used Free From.  Remember that beans are a miracle of nutrition including calcium, protein and vitamins.

Written by McDonald, T.   |  Date 2nd of June 2022     God save the Queen and the animals too! This is vegan jubilee dish number 2 and it is just as great as the first! Most of us love a great stew because it is comfort food and just so yummy.  Rule Britannia!

Jubilee Sausage Casserole With Dumplings

Image
Written by McDonald, T.   |  Date 1st of June 2022 Any Briton will tell you that this is a great idea, so why not celebrate the Queen's Jubilee in style with a modern take on a British classic!  This is such a heart-warming dinner with its spicy sausages and fluffy dumplings and a wonderful tomato sauce.  If you can get your hands on some purple broccoli, all the better since it will make it red, white and blue. Well, blue-ish.  This dinner is great for any time, so If you are looking for a mid-week fancy, this is definitely it.  God save the Queen!

Vegan Pulled Pork In Pitta Bread

Image
Written by McDonald, T.   |  Date 30th of May 2022 This is as close to a kebab as I can get.  The vegan pulled pork is pretty good and the whole thing is tasty and filling.  Pork used to be a favourite of mine years ago, so this recipe was something I was glade to come up with.  I had heard of jackfruit being used as pulled pork before, but I have not seen a recipe for it.  I had home-made chips and home-made pitta bread with it. 

How To Be A Greener Christian

Image
Written by McDonald, T.   |  Date 27th of May 2022 Christians and Jews are among the most Earth couscous people i know.  Perhaps it is down to the popularity of science in the Church or the need to show respect to God's creation, but being green and environmentally friendly is like the eleventh commandment among long-term practising Christians. Therefore, if you are new to Christianity being green is as important as anything else otherwise you are going to look odd.  With this in mind, what are the top things you can do to be that green Christian that sets the standards?

Written by McDonald, T.   |  Date 16th of May 2022     This dish is creamy with a smooth texture and great for a Daniel fast.  It is basically the same as a regular hummus recipe; however, this recipe observes the rules of a Daniel fast.   Goes great with unleavened bread .
