Eat Your Greens Pesto
Long gone are the days when pesto meant only the classic Italian sauce of basil, garlic, walnuts and olive oil (yes, walnuts, not pine nuts). Now, you may add this simple, oil free, fast, inexpensive, nutritious and delicious recipe to your pesto repertoire using broccoli!
Beans, Greens and Pasta Soup
This is a very simple, tasty, inexpensive, nutritious and quick meal, using whatever beans, greens and pasta we may have on hand.

Vegg Salad: Vegan Egg Salad
I like food and vegan food is just simply food to me. It is not fake, faux, replacement, vegan-this or vegan-that. But how do you solve a problem like egg salad? [You can sing that if you fancy and know the musical allusion] Do you call it “no egg,” “tofu egg,” “eggless” “n-egg” “vegg”? Or…
No Oil Creamy Spring Bow Ties
What? A creamy sauce made without oils? Yes, it can be done … and you have seen the basic method on this blog before (remember The Easiest and Creamiest Mac & Cheese and the broccoli mac & cheese). This dish sacrifices nothing in terms of flavour. It packs a tangy punch, it is creamy and full of…

Sometimes you feel like having a jacket potato (or baked potato as you’d say in the US) loaded with goodies. Well, this is just that … only different. Sweet potatoes are so delicious that I usually don’t even bother topping them. I eat them simply baked with skin and all. And I love sweet and…
Spicy Cavolo Nero, Leek & Potato Soup
I was inspired to make this soup by an odd combination of fancy that struck me: a spicy Ribollita, but without beans, combined with a traditional leek and potato soup, but without the creamy texture. It’s low-fat if you wish to make it that way or add the extras if you fancy. Serves 3 (recipe after the…
