Rainbow Veggie Coconut Dal

It is a bloody miracle that I haven't shared a dal recipe on the blog for a while now, considering I am cooking dals every week (much to my boys annoyance!). The last time I shared some delicious wholesome dal recipes, I received so many messages asking for more. Who knew, cheap dal dinners was a regular old thing - and not just in my home! So today, I am sharing another of my this-is-the-dal-i-want-to-eat-everyday obsessions. A Rainbow Veggie Co... Read More >>

Roasted Cauliflower Hummus - Cook Republic

Roasted Cauliflower Hummus

About four years ago, our local market got a new stall. A lovely Persian man selling the most divine Middle-Eastern dips. They became the talk of our then-active book club and the star of many of our monthly brunches. All were vegetarian, gluten and dairy free and brimming with delicious flavours of exotic spices. Out of all the ones I would bring back home with me every week, the cauliflower dip was my absolute favourite. And that is what it... Read More >>

Vegan Chickpea Masala Omelette

I was first introduced to an eggless (vegan) omelette as a child. I must've been four or five years old when mum presented Tomato Omelette one Sunday morning after I had watched the newest episode of Star Trek on telly. I actually have a very vivid memory of that day and the excitement of a new omelette variation as I was a complete and utter egg fiend and omelette was my jam. But the whole breakfast was a sham. When I tasted the omelette, it... Read More >>
Roasted Sweet Potato Salad With Harissa Chickpeas - Cook Republic #vegan #glutenfree

Roasted Sweet Potato Salad With Harissa Chickpeas

Are you a sweet potato person? What I am asking is that when you go to a restaurant, do you look at the menu and if you spot sweet potato then that is the dish you order? Oh Yes! Me too! Sadly most cafes around here only offer sweet potato wedges (where is your sense of adventure chefs?) which I eventually always end up ordering. Cannot resist roasted sweet potato! But I am also a cauliflower, mushroom, avocado, chickpea, spinach person. If a d... Read More >>
Slow Roasted Cauliflower Salad With Sweet Potato Hummus And Nut Dukkah - Cook Republic

Slow Roasted Cauliflower Salad With Sweet Potato Hummus And Nut Dukkah

I created this Cauliflower Salad more than two months ago and have been waiting silently, excitedly to share the recipe with you. I have made this at least 10 times in the past few weeks. It is THAT good! I think it might have dethroned this salad for me. Yes, I am positive, that this is my number one salad of the moment. Slow roasted cauliflower, almost sweet with the caramelisation, hints of charring on some of the florets, on a bed of the most... Read More >>
