The Musette: Pizza rossa

One of our many local Italian restaurants used to make an epic one of these which I absolutely loved adorned with a bit of spicy olive oil. Sadly, their Roman chef has moved on and it’s no longer on their menu. Consequently, I thought… Continue Reading “The Musette: Pizza rossa”

The Musette: Curried Vegetable Wraps

Lunch most days is scheduled for 12:30 and I (foolishly) rely on my beloved to advise whether or not this has to be pushed back (or forth) because one of his interminable Zoom meetings. I’m therefore always trying to come up with dishes that… Continue Reading “The Musette: Curried Vegetable Wraps”

The Musette: Beetroot Orzo

Here’s a short and sweet dish which cooks all in one pan to a satisfying deep garnet red with the spoonable feeling of a risotto. You can use any colour of beetroot you like here; I prefer the deep magenta jewels of the red… Continue Reading “The Musette: Beetroot Orzo”

The Musette: Baked Chard

I love recipes which are both a main meal for me and a side-dish for my non-vegan beloved husband. We both adore  Swiss chard’s dark green leaves with their colourful, sometimes woody, stems. I particularly like the stems which I’ll often use in another… Continue Reading “The Musette: Baked Chard”

The Musette: celeriac remoulade

This is a salad I’ll make regularly throughout autumn, winter and spring. Indeed, just as long as I can get organic, fresh celeriac. This creamy, mustardy slaw is a a typical French hors d’oeuvre. It used to be a bistro stalwart but you’re now… Continue Reading “The Musette: celeriac remoulade”

The Musette: Cabbage Thoran

One of the benefits of being at home pretty much 24/7, is that my beloved has embraced more of my plant-based eating. This means overall I cook fewer dishes. Yesterday’s fumble in the vegetable rack produced a sweet green cabbage and a small butternut… Continue Reading “The Musette: Cabbage Thoran”

The Musette: Artichokes

I can imagine, that if you didn’t grow up eating globe artichokes, and if you were encountering them for the first time, they might seem a little intimidating! The artichoke is actually the bud of a thistle – a flower. The leaves cover a… Continue Reading “The Musette: Artichokes”

The Musette: Mumbai Pastries

When I make a curry for Friday dinner, I’ll frequently make some chutney too. But what do you do with left over coriander chutney? You make these Mumbai pastries! Ingredients (makes 8) 10 tbsp fresh coriander (cilantro), chopped 3 tbsp fresh mint leaves, chopped… Continue Reading “The Musette: Mumbai Pastries”

The Musette: fudgy dark chocolate vegan cookies

I’ve baked lots of cookies — from chocolate chip to almond batons and lots in between — but the one I keep coming back to are these fudgy dark chocolate vegan cookies. The recipe feels like magic: just a handful of cupboard ingredients create… Continue Reading “The Musette: fudgy dark chocolate vegan cookies”

The Musette: it’s a (vegan) wrap

Although I enjoy cooking, particularly at lunchtime, I occasionally resort to a sandwich at dinnertime.  This frquently involves me standing in front of the fridge and mentally put together sandwich for each of us. My beloved is never a problem. There’s always cold meats, cheese… Continue Reading “The Musette: it’s a (vegan) wrap”
