Food Is Medicine

My Top Five Must-Try Plant-Based Recipes

So as you all know by now, food has played a huge part in my health journey. Years ago I lived off cereal, toast and microwave meals, and in the words of my former flatmate Claire “I couldn’t cook to save my life”. But now it has really has become a passion of mine and I love nothing more than creating something delicious in the kitchen which nine times out of ten is plant-based.

So after several requests, I thought I would share with you some of my favourite recipes that I love to make. Don’t get me wrong, I am not a chef by any means but I love to experiment with recipes and make them my own so I have made a few tweaks here and there.

So here are the recipes that I love to eat and I look forward to your trying them too.

  1. Yellow Peanut Butter Vegetable Curry

Now if you are a fan of peanut butter this delicious curry is for you. Made with mangetout, chickpeas and carrots combined with a tasty yet creamy sauce (which may I just point out is made from almond milk) combined with an array of spices, this amazing curry is without a doubt one of my favourite meals to make. Team it up with some nice rice or quinoa and I promise that you won’t be disappointed. Click here for the link to the recipe from the awesome Plant-Based Pixie. 

   2. Sweet Potato and Black Bean Shepherd’s Pie

Now if you haven’t heard of Deliciously Ella, she is basically the queen of plant-based cooking and this recipe is such a tasty treat. She puts a really modern twist on the traditional shepherd’s pie by using sweet potato, black beans and a twist of lime. This meal is such a hearty but healthy dinner that I normally team up with some broccoli or any other green veg. Click here to get cooking.

  3. Butternut Squash Stew with Kale, Quinoa, Tomatoes & White Beans

This simple and pretty quick recipe is great for those evenings you don’t want too much fuss but at the same time want a good filling meal. This tasty stew is packed with smoked paprika and cumin to give it such a lovely flavour. I love this recipe because it’s actually delicious to eat the next day eat cold and you can even it add it to salads. A great all-around plant-based meal. Click here for the link.

4. Cauliflower Tikka Masala

Now, who doesn’t love a tikka masala? I know I do. Normally they are made with a ton of cream and harmful oils but this tasty, plant-based/vegan recipe is the healthy alternative. I can promise you now that this being made from plant-based ingredients does not mean that you compromise on the taste. As well as the cauliflower I like to add some fresh kale or marrow to this dish as I feel it makes it a more rounded meal. So click here to be transported to India for this delicious curry.

5. Portuguese Pea Stew With A Twist

This hearty dish is another quick and simple dinner that I love to make. Made with potatoes, tomatoes and peas with a twist of whole coriander seeds to give it a punch of flavour, this stew is tantalising on your taste buds. You can serve this with rice or on its own just in a big bowl. If you love coriander then this dish is for you. Click here to access the recipe.
