The Musette: Herby Roasted Asparagus

I adore asparagus – green, white, purple – just bring it on! This is a dish I cook at home a lot  during spring. I turn it into a main for my beloved with the addition of a poached egg or some thickly sliced ham… Continue Reading “The Musette: Herby Roasted Asparagus”

The Musette: Vignarola

Vignarola is simply a celebration of that moment in spring when you have an abundance of beautiful artichokes, and the first of the broad beans and peas. It is so simple, but what makes it special is that the vegetables are cooked one after the… Continue Reading “The Musette: Vignarola”

The Musette: Basque Cheesecake

Hailing from the north of Spain, Basque cheesecake is the perfectly imperfect dessert with a tell-tale burnt exterior. Credited to chef Santiago Rivera, his creamy creation made its début in 1990 in his San Sebastián La Viña restaurant.There’s a pillowy centre hiding underneath a scorched… Continue Reading “The Musette: Basque Cheesecake”

The Musette: Mixed vegetable curry

Chickpeas are a great source of nutrients, and since they’re protein-packed, they are especially useful in vegetarian and vegan cooking. From soups… Continue Reading “The Musette: Moroccan chickpea stew”

The Musette: Vegan Oaties

I’m forever making batches of oat-based bars for breakfast and/or fuel on our bike rides. I tend to regard the ingredients as being pretty interchangeable, depending on what I have in the cupboard. Ingredients (4 – 6 servings) 80g (1/3 cup) home-made nut butter,… Continue Reading “The Musette: Vegan Oaties”

The Musette: Vegan tahini and date cookies

These thick, chewy cookies have a similar vibe to an oatmeal raisin cookie but  are way more interesting, with the savouriness from the tahini and sweet, sticky dates. One of my favourite things about them is that they don’t require any chilling, meaning they… Continue Reading “The Musette: Vegan tahini and date cookies”

The Musette: Kale and white bean korma

This creamy vegetable, protein and fibre-packed recipe only requires about 10 minutes of active cooking time and will simmer to perfection without tying you to the stove. Feel free to add any seasonal vegetables you have lying around — don’t feel constrained by my list… Continue Reading “The Musette: Kale and white bean korma”

The Musette: Channa Masala

For obvious reasons, this month all my recipes will be vegan. This simple recipe is quick and easy to make, yet very tasty. Like me you can make the curry sauce in bulk and freeze some, so that the next time it will take less than… Continue Reading “The Musette: Channa Masala”
