Plant-based recipes

If are looking for some plant-based recipes, these 3 options have kindly been shared by Komal (plant-based mamma)

Perhaps you try and stick to ‘Meat-free Mondays’ or you follow a completely vegan diet.

Komal says: “I became vegan just over 2 years ago and discovered a new found love for cooking. I want to share my recipes with as many people as possible and show just how easy it is to eat a plant-based diet. I have launched a new Instagram page dedicated to lots of delicious food. Please follow my Instagram page for recipes for delicious vegan food. I will include shortcuts for busy people and shout out places we enjoy eating at. “

Masala Scrambled Tofu

1 tsp oil
1 finely diced onion
2 finely diced cloves of garlic
2 finely chopped deseeded tomatoes
1/2 tsp turmeric
1/2 tsp ground cumin 
1/2 tsp garam masala
1/2 tsp asafoetida (optional)
Salt and pepper to taste
Finely chopped green chillies to taste
1 block squeezed tofu (I use two tins to squeeze the liquid out)   Chopped coriander 

Add the oil to the pan and once it is hot, add all the ingredients except the tofu and coriander. Cook until the onion, garlic and tomato are soft. Then crumble in the tofu and cook until the tofu had firmed up, and any moisture from the tofu had evaporated. Taste and adjust seasonings if needed. Turn off the heat and add the fresh coriander.
Serve on some toasted crusty bread with a dollop of ketchup

1 tsp paprika
1 tsp smoked paprika 1 tsp ground coriander
Salt and pepper to taste
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp cayenne pepper   2 tbsp tomato puree 1 cup water     2 chopped tomatoes Some taco shells or soft tacos 

Fry onions and garlic in oil

Add black beans, peppers, soya mince 

Add salt, pepper, paprika, smoked paprika, ground coriander, ground cumin and cayenne pepper

Once the spices have been fried add a few tablespoons of tomato puree and a cup of water

Add tomatoes, I used fresh but tinned is fine too 

Put the lid on and simmer so everything is soft and delicious

Take the lid off and cook off the extra liquid so it is thick enough to fill in a taco
Get taco filling and get them in your mouth!
