Instructions
MAKE THE HERB SAUCE: In a blender or food processor, pulse the parsley, cilantro, mint, green onion, garlic, lemon juice and olive oil until completely smooth. Set aside.
  1. Heat the remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat. Working in batches, sear the cauliflower steaks until they are golden brown, 3 to 4 minutes per side. The cauliflower should be easily pierced with a fork but not so tender that it falls apart.
MAKE THE CAULIFLOWER STEAKS: With a sharp knife, cut the cauliflower into 1-inch-thick slices. (You should get about 8 slices.) Rub both sides of each piece of cauliflower with about 1 teaspoon olive oil. Sprinkle both sides of each piece with 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika, salt and pepper.
  1. To serve, place 2 cauliflower steaks on each plate and top with a generous drizzle of the lemon-herb sauce. Serve immediately with steamed wild rice.
Recipe Notes

Leftover sauce will keep in the refrigerator for up to a week.

Instructions
  1. Roast grew pumpkin cubes - drizzle with olive oil, sprinkle with some salt and baked on a baking tray in a 200c oven for about 20 mins - Remove and set aside.
  2. Heat up oil on a medium heat, in a heavy bottom pan. Once the oil is hot, add mustard seeds and wait until they start popping, stirring from time to time. Wait another minute before adding onion.
  3. Add chopped onion, sweat it gently, stirring from time to time until it gets almost soft.
  4. Add garlic, ginger, fresh chilli and chopped coriander stalks. Cook for 2 minutes stirring frequently so that ginger does not stick to the pan.
  5. Now add all the ground spices and 1 tsp of salt. Reduce the heat to low and coat everything in the pot in spices. Stir frequently, cook for 1-2 minutes until all spices are fragrant.
  6. Add chopped tomatoes and ¼ cup / 60 ml of water. Cook for 2 minutes until tomatoes become mushy.
  7. Add coconut milk and pumpkin. Let everything come to a gentle boil, simmer covered until pumpkin is tender. If you’re roasting the pumpkin, simmer the sauce for about 10 minutes.
  8. Taste and adjust spicing if needed. I added a bit more salt and a 2 teaspoons of maple syrup.
  9. Serve with coriander leaves and chopped cashews on top, with basmati rice or a roti.

  1. Heat the butter and oil in a frying pan. Add the onion and fry until soft. Stir in the garlic and mushrooms, season and cook for 5 mins until the mushrooms are soft. Stir in the parsley and cream. Remove from the heat and allow to cool.
  2. Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Grease a 6-hole muffin tin with butter, then line each hole with a long thin strip of baking parchment. Roll out the pastry on a lightly floured surface and stamp out 6 x 10 cm circles. Press a circle into each hole to line. Roll out the remaining pastry (you may need to re-roll trimmings) and stamp out 6 x 8cm circles.
  3. Divide the mushroom mix between the pies. Brush the pastry edges with a little egg, top each with a pastry lid and carefully press the pastry edges together to seal.
  4. Brush with the remaining egg and sprinkle with caraway seeds. Bake for 25-30 mins until golden. Allow to cool in the tin slightly before serving, or cool on a wire rack and keep in airtight containers for up to 1 day. Reheat before serving.

Instructions
  1. Place a few inches of water in a large pot, then insert a steamer basket. Bring to a boil and then add the whole cauliflower head. Reduce heat to medium and steam until the base of the cauliflower can be really easily pierced with a sharp knife, 15 to 17 minutes. Arrange oven rack at least 10 - 15cm from the grill and preheat the grill.
  2. Meanwhile, combine the tahini, 1/2 cup warm water, lemon juice, garlic and honey in the bowl of a food processor or blender. Add a pinch of salt and blend until smooth and creamy. Taste and adjust flavouring as desired.
  3. Place the whole head of cauliflower on an aluminium foil-lined tray. Drizzle all over with olive oil (you want to pour it on slowly so the cauliflower soaks it up but don't add so much that it pools on the baking pan). Season all over with a large pinch of salt, then place under the grill. Cook, watching the whole time and rotating the baking tray as needed, until the cauliflower is mostly charred.
  4. Serve with tahini sauce, parsley and a pinch of salt.

Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 180C.
  2. Cut the pumpkin in half lengthwise. Scoop out and discard the seeds, then put both halves on a baking tray, cut side up. Drizzle the olive oil on top of each half and rub around to coat. Bake for 60 to 75 minutes until the pumpkin is cooked and fork tender.
  3. Let it cool enough so that you can handle it. Scoop out the flesh in the centre of both pumpkin halves, leaving about a 1-inch border all around.
  4. For the stuffing: In a large pan, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. Sauté the carrots, celery, onion, and garlic until softened and begining to brown. Add the wild rice and stock to the pan, give it a stir, then cover and bring to a simmer. Cook for 10 minutes. Now add the white rice to the pan, cover, and continue to cook another 8 to 10 minutes until the rice has cooked and fully absorbed the stock.
  5. Add in the walnuts, dried cranberries, sage, thyme, salt, and pepper. When ready, add in the scooped out and chopped pumpkin flesh. Stir well to combine.
  6. To stuff the pumpkin: Pack in as much of the stuffing into both sides of the pumpkin as you can. Pick up one pumpkin half and flip it on top of the other. Use kitchen string to tie up the pumpkin in 3 or 4 places holding it together.
  7. When you are ready to bake, lightly brush the top with more olive oil. Bake for 20 to 35 minutes until hot all the way through. Season the top with cracked pepper, and a sprinkle of chopped sage. Slice carefully and serve hot with you favourite vegan gravy.

Instructions
  1. Heat the oil in a large pot over medium heat. When the oil is shimmering, add the onion and sauté for about 5-7 minutes, or until the onions are clear and soft, adding a tablespoon or two of water to help prevent sticking if necessary. Add the garlic, ginger, curry paste, and tamari. Sauté for 2 minutes, or until the garlic is very fragrant.
  2. Add the stock, coconut milk, carrots, lemongrass, and red pepper to the pot. Bring the mixture to a boil. Reduce to a simmer, cover, and simmer for 20 minutes.
  3. Remove the lemongrass stalks from the pot. Transfer the soup to a blender in batches and blend till smooth, or use an immersion blender to blend the soup completely. Return the soup the pot, stir in the lime juice, and adjust seasonings to taste. You can also stir in some extra stock if the soup is too thick for your liking.
  4. Serve with chopped basil, finely chopped peppers, sprouts or microgreens, sliced avocado, or a swirl of coconut milk or cashew cream.
