Cauliflower Pizzaiola

Written by McDonald, T.   |  Date 29th of May 2023  I was surprised at how quick and easy this dinner was to make.   Pizzaiola or Carne Pizzaiola was originally an Italian meat dish.  However, the meat has been replaced with cauliflower and the cheese swapped for vegan alternatives to make it vegan. This is a wonderful dish that is high in vitamin C.

Vegan Pineapple Upside-Down Cake

Written by McDonald, T.   |  Date 22 of May 2023     I loved this cake as a boy, but never got to have it much.  How things have changed!  This cake has a pineapple topping often with cherries.  I love the different textures and sweet tastes this cake has to offer. It is great warm or cold.  You can have it with cream, ice-cream, custard or just on its own.  Ingredients For the topping 5 – 6 pineapple rings, fresh is better. 50 g softened vegan butter 50 g light soft brown sugar 7 glacĂ© cherries For the cake Wet Ingredients 2/3 cup plain vegan yogurt 1/3 cup of vegan milk 1/3 cup rapeseed oil (any vegetable oil will do)  1/3 cup of pineapple juice 1 tbsp of white vinegar 1 tsp vanilla extract Dry Ingredients: 1 and 1/2 cups of self rasing flour 3/4 cup sugar 1 and 3/4 teaspoon baking powder 1/4 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda 1/4 teaspoon salt  Method Mash the light brown sugar and vegan butter together into a paste. Spread this over the bottom and up the sides of the cake tin.

Vegan Tamagoyaki

Written by McDonald, T.   |  Date 15th of May 2023 Omelettes are one of those things I miss. However, thanks to crackD we have an easy way to make them. This Chinese omelette is sweet, different, and tasty.   Although, the crackD egg replacement struggles with this dish, it is still good and better than nothing.

Vegan Pepperoni Pizza - Thin base

Written by McDonald, T.   |  Date 8th of May 2023 Up until now, I have never been a great fan of thin pizza bases.  However, this one is just so easy and tastes great! It needs few ingredients and no special expertise.

Jackfruit Linguine

Written by McDonald, T.   |  Date 1st of May 2023 Another quick and easy meal.  The original recipe used crab, which I replaced with jackfruit.  The dish has strong flavours from the lemon and tomato.
