Buckwheat Stuffed Aubergine Boat

This Buckwheat Stuffed Aubergine Boat is such an easy yet satisfying vegan/vegetarian dish. Buckwheat Stuffed Aubergine may sound complicated, but it is in-fact a very forgiving recipe. You can tweak the flavours according to what you have on your spice shelf.  Substitute the buckwheat for quinoa, couscous or rice. It can all be prepared in about one hour.

Mauritian Mushroom Rougaille

Here’s a quick, easy and hearty recipe of mushroom bathed in a slightly spicy garlicky tomato sauce. A little something easy for those busy weekdays. Mushrooms are good for us, I’ve heard nonsense to the contrary, but I really can’t emphasise enough how nutritious they are. And they’re budget friendly too. The tomato sauce is a basic Mauritian taste, but you can use the same sauce for pasta dishes as well. For another vegetarian option, you can use pre-soaked soya chunks, peas, tofu, or any other vegetables instead of or as well as the mushroom. If you are a devout carnivore don’t panic, you can just as easily use chicken, fish, eggs or any other living creature you want to eat.

Carrot and Leek Risotto

This Carrot and Leek Risotto is like nothing you have ever tasted before. It’s beautifully tasty and light, healthy and on the budget. The lemon juice just brings all the flavours together. The fresh aromatic lemon herb that of course, I picked from my garden compliments the zingy taste. Followed by a sweet, nutty flavour that leaves you wanting for more. If you can’t find lemon thyme, just use regular thyme or fresh parsley.

Homemade Vegetarian Soya Balls

This recipe is one I feel so proud of creating. Proud because my meat lover husband even would have these balls any day of the week now. The recipe is simple enough,  nutritious and cheap too.  Treat it as you would any meatballs by making a curry or following the recipe for a red sauce.

Beetroot Lasagna

Beetroot is a very nutritious food with benefits like detoxification support, anti-inflammatory, rich in fibre and boosting your stamina.

When I see beetroots, I just want to eat them, juice or cook them. Try this straightforward Beetroot Lasagna recipe for a busy weeknight dinner and stay well!

Mauritian Butter Bean and Aubergine Curry

This is a delicious meal and unbelievably cheap to make! A can of butterbeans is about €0.55  and aubergine in Lidl for €0.49 (on offer). All in, I feed our family of 6 for less than €5. I didn’t count the spices and ghee.

Bean and Mushroom Chilli 

Along with some fresh food in the fridge, I always stock some canned beans and chopped tomatoes. There is an endless list of meal that can be made with beans and tomatoes.  Beans and chopped tomatoes don’t require too much cooking add in with a few more smart ingredients you’ll have a lovely dish in no time!
