6 Photos to Inspire Your Cooking

I found myself googling ‘what should I eat for dinner’ the other day. It’s easy to lose inspiration for your cooking so I’m going to spam you with loads of photos of amazingly delicious food.

I’ve been busy studying for exams (again… do I spend my whole life revising?) but I thought I’d share with you a few of my quick fixes that have kept me satisfied whilst on a 100mph agenda. Basically… You’ve got no excuse not to cook up some yummy, healthy vegan grub!

Comment below if you feel inspired by anything and want a recipe.

1. Mexican Burritos– bean chilli with cous cous, avocado, spring onion and lettuce (and a cheeky squirt of vegan mayo)

2. Rice Noodles in Peanut Sauce with Teriyaki Tofu (and the meat option is peanutty pork in the bowl at the back!). I served with little parcels of garlic mushroom and leek. Yum.

3. Shiitake and Seaweed Noodle Soup with Asparagus ‘spring rolls’ I urge you to try these asparagus wrapped in spring roll pastry. Asparagus is in peak season right now for us lot in the UK so it won’t be hard to come by. Dipped in soy sauce or sweet chilli sauce they are a dream.

4. Cous Cous Casserole with seaweed and kidney beans.
Simple, healthy, delicious.

5. (Vegan) Fish ‘n’ Chips I had to put vegan in brackets because it’s so convincing… It’s breaded aubergine baked in the oven then drizzled with a lemon and chive dressing. Served with wedges and mushy peas you can make sure you’re not feeling left out on fish day!

6. Puff Pizzas these can be as quick or as time consuming as you chose. For a quick fix buy pre-made puff pastry, and pre-made pesto. I made my own cashew and basil pesto which was a dream and only takes a few seconds in the blender. Top with veg of your choice and chuck in the oven for a quick but amazing meal with leftovers that can be eaten cold for lunch the next day!

  1. All looking yummy, Molly! I love aubergine, so my fav one to try would be the “fish and chips”! Also fancy the rice noodle one and the soup & asparagus. Recipes would be fab!x

    • Fish ‘n’ chips
      The aubergine is really simple, I spread vegan mayo all over slices of aubergine, but you could use mayo or egg (I like to use mayo because it makes it creamy) then roll it in breadcrumbs and pop it in the oven for 15-20 minutes. The dressing is lemon juice, chives and olive oil :)

      Rice noodles in peanut sauce
      Again- easy! Whisk together 1/2 cup smooth peanut butter, 1/4 cup soy sauce, 1/3 cup of warm water, 1tbsp chopped ginger, 1 chopped garlic clove, 1 1/2 tbsp sesame oil, 1 tbsp honey (for vegans use agave nectar), and 1tsp chilli flakes.
      Then fry up some onion and pepper in a wok, add the peanut sauce then straight after add the rice noodles. Cook any meat/tofu seperately and add at the end!

      Soup and Asparagus Rolls
      I got the noodle soup recipe from here (http://www.whfoods.com/genpage.php?tname=recipe&dbid=63) but I added in a pack of udon noodles at the end!

      You can buy spring roll pastry, so I just bought that, rolled it out and spread margarine on the sheets. Then rolled them around steamed asparagus! Pop in the oven for 10 mins and they’re done :)

      Enjoy!

    • :) this was a fav!

      I fried 1 diced bell pepper in a little oil then after 5 mins added a mound of couscous and mixed it all up.

      Then take off the heat and add 2tbsp tomato purΓ©e, 1tsp smoked paprika and 2tsp vegetable stock powder (like boullion) and make sure you mix it to coat all the couscous.

      Add boiling water (250ml for every 200g of couscous) and a handful of dried seaweed. Bring back to the boil then leave to simmer on a low heat until all the water is soaked up to your liking (about 5 mins). A few mins before serving chuck in some red kidney beans and serve when hot with a sprinkling of spring onions. YUM!

      Hope you enjoy, I love this one! Lemme know how it goes if you do try :D
