Grilled vegetables on toasted turkish bread

This was really yum!

it's exactly what it is, sliced and grilled vegetables in a turkish bread which I toasted - DELISH!

I used sliced capsicum, onion, mushroom, zuchinni and broccoli, but you can mix it up depending on what you have - and top with whatever you want :)

Teriyaki noodles

Hello all, so today for lunch I had no idea what I was going to eat - I desperately need to go shopping!
Anyway, I made to with some condiments in the cupboard and whala! teriyaki noodles!

Anyway, this would be a lot more exciting if I actually had vegetables (cries) but I didn't, so the noodles are just udon noodles, and the teriyaki sauce is a mixture of soy sauce, garlic, sesame seeds, and a sweetner (I used agave, but raw sugar would also suffice, you would need to boil it with the soy sauce) and then a tiny bit of corn starch to thicken the sauce a little.
Anyway, I fried it all up in a pan, mixed in my noodles and there you have it! :)

Roast Vegetables

Bit of a lazy dinner tonight

The roast vegetables are just chopped, potato, sweet potato, carrot and pumpkin tossed in a mixture of herbs (mixed herbs) some vegeta vegetable stock, and some oil.

On the side we have a mash potato - pretty simple, just some boiled potato mashed with a little soy milk and 'butter' with some steamed pumpkin
and the other thing on the left is fried mushroom, onion and garlic, all chopped coarsely so that the mushroom is still juicy when you eat it.

I top it all off with my own gravy, which I make out of a mixture of herbs, vegeta vegetable stock, no egg, and the water from boiling the potatoes.

All in all, a pretty delicious meal! (bad shot, but I'll be ditching the camera phone for a proper camera shortly!)

Vegan Sausage Roll

Yes, I apologise for the over used baking tray picture (lose points for presentation!)

The great thing about this particular recipe, is that you can improvise and use whatever ingredients you have in the kitchen, they're great party food! All you need to do is cut them into smaller pieces before baking to make them finger food.

1 large onion
a few cloves of garlic
cup of spinach
half a cup of pumpkin
half a cup of sweet potato
half a cup of broccoli
1 carrot
half a cup of corn
half a cup of peas
5 tablespoons of orgran no egg (or alternatively flour)
borg's puff pastry (or vegan puff pastry of choice)
2 slices of lightly toasted bread (I used soy and linseed bread) processed into breadcrumbs. (more if mixture needs to be thicker)

throw everything but the corn and peas, puff pastry, bread and no egg in a food processor or alternatively chop EXTREMELY finely/grate.
fry mixture up until soft and add breadcrumbs and no egg

roll into puff pastry (pastry should double over)
cut into 3 cm slices and place a slit through this
paint with soy milk and sprinkle with sesame seeds

place in oven on 180 for up to 45 minutes (depending on oven) until golden brown

Hello all,

Welcome to my blog!

This blog (as summed up in it's title) will be all about compassionate (vegan) cooking. I'm looking forward to sharing all my recipes with you, especially since it's harder for us to just eat a quick frozen dinner. We need to share, and that's what I intend on doing. I hope you all enjoy my recipes.
