CHRISTMAS RECIPES Spinach and Thyme Soup

Spinach and Thyme Soup

Spinach is full of iron and its rich iodine flavour stands up well in a simple soup. You’ll think that this soup has a lot more ingredients in it when you taste it. We also show you how to adapt the recipe so it is vegetarian and vegan.

MAIN COURSES

Roast Curried Cauliflower Tacos with Baby Spinach

Cauliflower, when it is roasted in thick slices, becomes rich and meaty. Flavour it with curry paste before you bake it, then stuff warm tortillas with a slice, add fresh spinach leaves and a spoon of sour cream and a spoon of the spicy Mexican tomato sauce Roja Salsa, serve it in a warm tortilla and you have a vegetarian main course that even meat eaters will love.

SAUCES, OILS, DRESSINGS + DIPS Beetroot Tzatziki (Vegan-friendly)

Beetroot Tzatziki (Vegan-friendly)

An adaption of the Greek tzatziki which is usually made with cucumber and yogurt. When you make it with  beetroot it turns a stunning carmine colour so it makes anything you eat it with look good. We sometimes skip the mint and use a teaspoon of toasted cumin seeds instead, and sprinkle some extra cumin seeds on top. You could do the same with toasted coriander seeds or use fresh coriander instead of mint. 

MAIN COURSES

Tomato and Bean Salsa Wraps (Vegan friendly)

You won’t miss meat when you eat these tomato and bean salsa wraps. Feel free to use mixed beans, or butter beans or kidney beans. Heat the finished salsa with a tablespoon of olive oil in a saucepan to make a warm salsa wrap.

SIDE DISHES Roast Carrots with Maple Syrup

Carrots with Rosemary and Maple Syrup

Baby carrots look so beautiful when they are baked. You only need a few for each plate to make any dish look classy. And they are sweeter than larger, older carrots. Use Winter or Summer savory for this dish. If you can’t find it use rosemary or thyme instead.
