Basic Meal Prep For Daily Vegetarian Lunches + Recipes

Based on the assumption that everyone has a few kitchen basics like a saucepan with a lid, a frying pan, stirring spoons, and spatula – here is a list of kitchen tools that will help your basic meal prep go smoother and faster. 1. A good vegetable knife I use these knives to chop, slice, dice, shred and julienne most vegetables. Global G5 Nakiri Vegetable Chopper in 18cm and 14cm. Victorinox 8cm Cutlery paring knife   2. A vegetable peeler A Y-peeler will suffice but I grew up using this straight potato peeler and believe me it is the best. This IKEA 365+ VÄRDEFULL peeler is the sharpest I have found.   3. A d...

Crispy Cauliflower Buffalo Wings With Sour Cashew Cream Sauce - Cook Republic #vegan #airfryer #glutenfree #healthy

Crispy Cauliflower Buffalo Wings With Sour Cashew Cream Sauce And The Philips Airfryer XXL

One of my new favourite things to experiment with in the kitchen is the Philips Airfryer. I remember when they first came out in 2010, they were the talk of the town. Deep frying with air? Not oil? It was a mind-blowing concept that really worked. Using their patented Rapid-Air Technology that circulated hot air to create a tornado effect, the Airfryer mimicked deep-frying without the use of oil. It allowed people to fry using 80% less fat* – a healthier way to make your favourite potato wedges, French fries, dumplings, samosas and nuggets. And it could also bake, roast and grill – allowing cooks to get creative in the kitchen. &nb... Read More >>

5 Ingredient Vegan Tahini And Almond Cookies - Cook Republic #vegan #glutenfree #tahini #cookies

5 Ingredient Vegan Almond And Tahini Cookies

Tahini is not only wonderful in savoury sauces and dips but absolutely divine in baking. There is something truly more-ish about a sweet, baked, sesame treat. It is chewy (due to the fluid stretchy nature of tahini) and crumbly (due to almond meal) all at once. An almond and tahini cookie that requires only 5 ingredients and 15 minutes to make. And one you need to make weekly if you want to snack better at 3pm and reap the health benefits of tahini. Did you know that tahini (sesame paste) is super dense in essential vitamins and minerals? With a good dose of magnesium, potassium, iron, protein and healthy fats, it assists in providing ... Read More >>
Instant Vegan Mango Ice Cream - Cook Republic #vegan #glutenfree

Instant Vegan Mango Ice Cream

Do you often wonder why when you make mango ice cream or smoothies at home, do they taste like bland sweetness whereas that mango ice cream from that gelato place tastes like sheer pleasure in a cone? There are two main reasons. The first being the type of mango. The key to a good mango ice cream is the variety of the mango used. I do not trust recipes that call for any mango to make an ice cream. Because all mangoes were not created equal! All mangoes will add sweetness to your dessert but only some mangoes will add that complexity and depth of flavour to create a dessert worthy of culinary nirvana. And the second reason is salt. Yes, yo... Read More >>

Roasted Cauliflower Nasi Goreng – Indonesian Fried Rice

About eight months ago, Nick welcomed the 40s and life served up a reflux and elevated cholesterol problem. It was like a switch being flipped. One minute everything was fine and the next minute, it felt like a heart attack. We later found out that it was just reflux but it was scary and prompted us to investigate the factors causing both issues. Now Nick has always been quite fit and lean, he plays soccer throughout the year and is on the go perpetually .. coaching, gardening, building things etc... We realised that a lot of his symptoms (both reflux and high cholesterol) were caused by eating out while at work (mostly Asian - the stale ... Read More >>
