I’ve tried lots of vegan chicken through years that I’ve been vegan; from Bok Shop, Quorn vegan nuggets, Fry’s, and Temple of Seitan, however, it took me a while to decide to make my own at home. And do you know what? It’s pretty simple to make, is cheap, and the recipe I’m about to share with you has a great yield!
Making your own bread at home is one of the most satisfying and rewarding things that you can do, if only because of the smell! However, a lot of people are intimidated by bread: it involves scary things like yeast, kneading and proving. However, by following a few simple rules, making bread is one of the most straightforward things you can do.
Growing up, my Mum taught me a lot I now know about cooking. She’d have this amazing cook book which she’d actually gotten when she first started secondary school in the late 1960s. One of the recipes I used to love making was the apple scones! They are for sure the recipe which would remind me of my Mum as they’re the favourite thing she used to (and still does) bake for us.
From many of my recent posts, you might think that I am trying to turn this into a food blog – I’m not. Or at least, I’m not intending to. However, I do love to eat good food, cook and bake, so if there’s something food wise that I’d like to share, then, well, I’m going to be honest I shall be sharing it!
Over the next day or so I’ll be sharing a selection of recipes which tie in with a competition that British Turkey are running – they are my entries into the competition which challenged entrants to come up with some exciting dishes which involved British turkey.
Today I am sharing with you two recipes to help you create a Chinese-inspired meal using British turkey.
I really loved making peppermint bark in the Winter/at Christmas time and though that it would be fun to make something more Spring like for this time of the year. Now I’m not religious, but of course you could call this Easter bark since next weekend is in fact Easter – it has come around very quickly for me this year even though I knew it would be early!
