Baked Onion

Written by McDonald, T.   |  Date 11th of October 2023 This dish goes well with anything such as potato, rice, quinoa, buckwheat, or couscous.  The sauce is as easy to make as it is versatile.  The prunes give it a sweetness while the vegan feta and onion blend their flavours together magnificently.

Apple Crumble

Written by McDonald, T.   |  Date 16th of October 2023 I learned to make this in my Nan's kitchen as a boy.  It is so easy to make and yet yields such splendid results.  It takes little time to prepare since all you have to do is peel the apples and stew them with some other ingredients for a bit the most time consuming part is baking it in the oven.  So, if you are looking for a popular dessert that is straight forward to make, this should definitely be on your short list.  Notes Self raising flour is fine if you have nothing else.  For some extra fun, add a small glass of sherry! Makes 1 medium sized dish (about 700 g) Time – 15–20 minutes to prepare and 35–40 minutes to bake.  About 1 hr in total . Ingredients Apple filling  Cooking apples x 2 large Sultanas x 5 tbsps Cinnamon x 2 tsps Lemon x 2–3 tbsps Vanilla extract x 1/2 tsp  Brown sugar x 2-3 tbsp Salt x 2 pinch   Water x 100 ml Crumble Plan flour 120 g Vegan butter 40 g Sugar 40 g + more for sprinkling on top Salt x 1/4 t

Vegan Meat Pie

  Written by McDonald, T.   |  Date 9th of October 2023   Although there are many great vegan meat pies on the market, I miss the homemade variety.  Since making a pie is so easy if you are willing to cheat, I thought I would put this simple but tasty pie together.  It has a puff pastry crust with a vegan meat and gravy filling.

English Apple Cake

Written by McDonald, T.   |  Date 2nd of October 2023   What better way to celebrate a festival or just the weekend than with a slice of English apple cake?  This cake is flatter than most cakes, but is spread out more in a larger baking tin.  You can cut it into squares or into fingers. Notably, it is very easy to make and so tasty!
