If you have made a new years resolution to perhaps eat a little bit healthier or to try and cut out meat then this is a great event to book on for some vegetable inspiration - we will share a few recipes with you to help you to cook them at home.
Crushed puy lentils with tahini and cumin - a little bit like hummus, though much easier and quicker to prepare.
Green salad - French beans, mangetout, peas, spinach and anything else green gets tossed in this yummy dressing.
Roasted pear, spinach and sweet potato salad with pumpkin seeds - you are going to want to marry me after you have eaten this!
Vegetable Pahi- technically this is a dry Sri Lankan curry but my version is a bit more like a pickle. I serve it cold with lots of fresh bread to dunk into.
Roasted red onions with a walnut salsa - this dish has now become a firm favourite at our dinner parties.
Roasted cauliflower with a cinnamon, sun dried tomato and rose harissa marinade - I have made this a few times and now and the dish always comes back empty.
Tomatoes fried with cumin, chilies and cloves - Don't panic this dish nearly always sets of the fire alarm and has me coughing and spluttering in the kitchen - is it worth it? Oh yes, you will be fighting over the pan juices.
All served with rice and bread to tear and share - We are lucky enough to have a vegan organic shop in Darwen called Freedom Organics so I will rushed down and purchase some fresh baked loaves, one a sourdough and the other a sunflower and molasses loaf.
Chocolate and avocado cake - apparently this is going to be the next big thing. Remember where you ate it first and don't forget to save me a slice!!
Pears poached with cardamom and rosewater - close your eyes, picture a dessert, a Bedouin tent and dive into this delicately fragranced warm pear.
