Turmeric Mushroom Pickle - Cook Republic #vegan #glutenfree #healthyrecipe #foodphotography

Turmeric Mushroom Pickle

Lately, during my Sunday meal prep sessions; this fresh Turmeric Mushroom pickle has been in heavy rotation. It takes a total of 10 minutes to make and is so incredibly packed with flavour that I can't believe how simple a recipe it is to yield that kind of result. I got the idea for making this gorgeous pickle after I had made this mushroom broth for the hundredth time. I always buy my mushrooms from the weekly farmer's markets and they a... Read More >>

Mushroom And Lentil Vegan Bolognese

A few years ago, I started converting a lot of our regular traditional meat recipes to vegetarian (often vegan) flavour packed versions. It was simply to get the boys to eat more plant-based meals and open up their minds to healthier options. Little did I know that we would actually end up loving the vegetarian versions more than the original ones. Like this Vegan Bolognese made with an abundance of garlic, mushrooms and lentils slow simmered... Read More >>

Market Veggie Broth

Every Thursday when I walk into my home with my baskets and jute bags full of fresh market produce, I make this broth. Like clockwork. I set my bags down, grab the Kilner jam pan (who knew it would be just perfect for big batches of stock and sauces) and fill it with 6 litres of filtered water. And because I have now been doing this every single week for the past two years, I chop veggies on automaton, toss them in the water and get the heat goin... Read More >>

Savoury Granola

When I was in primary school which was over 30 years ago, times were simpler. In India where I grew up, packaged food was non existent. Sliced bread had created much excitement amongst the community but besides that there wasn't a lot available in terms of cereal and snacks. So of course, everything was homemade. One of the most popular homemade snack was Savoury Granola. Known as chivda or Bombay Mix, it was a dry roasted mix of rice flakes,... Read More >>
Peach Grape And Thyme Galette - Cook Republic

Peach Grape And Thyme Galette

I love the wildness that a galette brings to the dessert table. A tiny bit messy and a whole lot rustic, it is the free spirited child of a pie. One of the main advantages of a galette (which is essentially a freeform pie) over an actual old-fashioned pie is that you don't have to bake the pastry twice. There are only a handful of galettes I make with a rhubarb and strawberry number being the most baked in my kitchen but come summer and a jui... Read More >>
