I can trace my recent improvements on the vegetarian cooking front to one insight in particular (thanks to the stir fry section in Heidi Swanson‘s book, credited/linked below): that almost every stove-top vegetarian dish is vastly enhanced with vegetable stock cubes.

When you don’t feel like assembling a whole lasagna, or change your mind at the last minute – this is a very tasty and healthy vegetarian pasta bake. For us, it feels a bit ‘festive’ each time we make it; as if we’re treating ourselves. 1.5 bags brown rice pasta (spirals or penne; Tinkyada is […]

It could be breakfast because it has apples and nuts. […]
4 tablespoons olive oil 1 large onion, diced 2 stalks of celery, diced 4 cloves garlic, chopped 4-6 medium yellow potatoes, diced (no need to peel) 1 pound (450g bag) green lentils, picked over and rinsed 4 vegetarian stock cubes (low-salt if possible) 6-8 cups water (you may need more – I used about 150% […]
