Welcome to The Accidental Chef. The goal here is to cook according to the Great British seasons as much as possible. Of course, there will be store cupboard recipes, drinks and times when we just cook what we fancy, that’s the joy of food right? This is my personal cookbook and a place to document my ever-evolving food journey and keep my favourite recipes, forever.
The Accidental Chef: Introduction
Autumn/ Winter Recipes
Crunchy, cheesy and intensely savoury this Aubergine Lasagne with lentils & walnuts is an attractive alternative to the traditional meat-laden lasagne. Complete with a crunchy golden mozzarella topping.
Creamy, peppery and rich, this Prawn Linguine makes an impressive low-key dinner party dish but can double up as an easy midweek meal. That’s pretty darn good, eh?
Healthy eating doesn’t have to be expensive, or time consuming, this Chickpea + Spinach Curry is proof of that – costing less than £1 per portion.
On the menu today is a quick as you like, Red Cabbage Stir-Fry. We’re sticking with the seasons today too – red cabbage, leeks and carrots make up the bulk of this noodle-free stir fry. Want to pop a fresh, flavourful stirfry on the table within 15 minutes? You’re in the right place!
What to live your spaghetti and meatballs fantasy is 20 minutes flat? These lentil meatballs are for you!
Smokey, intensely savoury, Seitan Steaks are on the menu today. These vegan steaks are packed with big onion, mushroom and garlic flavours with extra smokiness, wrapped and roasted as a slab of vegan meat, before being carved and finished off in a griddle pan, or on the grill.
A vegan take on the chilli con carne, using cauliflower in place of ground beef mince. It’s smokey. It’s tasty. It’s massive.
Is there anything on this earth that tastes as good as pesto, with the minimal amount of effort required to make pesto?!? I don’t think there is, and this Super Green Pesto proves it.
Quick, easy and vegan – this super seasonal, creamy cabbage pasta is a quick win for a midweek meal. Just don’t forget to soak the cashews.
VEGANUARY IS GO! To help you through January, I’ve compiled the ultimate list of 31 Easy Vegan Recipes that will be on your table in under 30 minutes.
I’m back on my Seitan HYPE! Today I present this straightforward, umami-rich, vegan roast dinner centre piece.
Nibbles! Nibbles for EVERYONE. We’ve reached that time of the year where meals are no longer a thing, we just graze and yell “f*ck it, it’s Christmas”. These sausage rolls are made with that spirit in mind!
