Lunch & Dinner

Carrot top pesto

Thrifty as I am - throwing away half of the carrot bunch (if not more as in the summer there is often more of the carrot top, than there is of a carrot) is simply not an option. I played with different variation of this recipe but I am now happy with this version. I think adding leek is what makes it.

Haggis is Scottish national dish and as far from vegan food as you can get, but having recently been to Edinburgh I had to create my own, veggie friendly version. Hope you enjoy!


Vegan haggis with millet

I created two haggis recipes thinking I'd be able to choose my favourite. No such luck, love them both so decided to share both of them. 

Serve with a big salad or mushroom gravy would be great as well.

Roasted sweet potatoes

 Sweet potato (a tropical plant!) was probably found before the Irish potato (It’s history dates back to 750 B.C. in Peruvian records). The Incans called it "batata" and that is apparently the origin of our word "potato". It is native to Central America, where it is one of the oldest – known cultivated vegetables.

This is one superfood-packed salad. Quinoa is full of protein, beetroot has been viewed as an aphrodisiac since Roman times, and walnuts do wonders for your brain thanks to their omega-3 acids. The roasted garlic dressing is a rich and creamy way to bring it all together, and perfect for the season.

Sweet potato soup with coconut milk

It has just enough spice to balance the sweetness of the potatoes, coriander adds freshness and roasted potatoes chunks add more texture. Serve as it is or with some fresh bread. Depending on how hungry you and the guests are this would serve 4 to 6 people.
