Vegan Quiche - perfect for summer picnics

As we move towards the Summer Holidays I plan to highlight some delicious, affordable and easy to cook picnic and BBQ recipes. This is part two from a series of vegan picnic ideas from Louise Palmer-Masterton , who is the founder of multiple award-winning restaurants Stem & Glory.

The first in this series was a delicious Vegan BLT and the recipe can be found here.

This second part is a simple, yet delicious Vegan Quiche, so if you want to cook something that is part of an award-winning restaurants menu, now is your chance!

Vegan ‘Quiche’

Makes 8 large slices

This is a staple in our house. It’s very tasty straight from the oven and works fab cold in a picnic with some pickle.

By all means, make your own pastry, but there are very good vegan pre-made shortcrust in every supermarket.


Vegan BLT

Vegan BLT

As we move towards the Summer Holidays I plan to highlight some delicious, affordable and easy to cook picnic and BBQ recipes. I am very excited to announce that to kick this off, I have a series of vegan picnic ideas from Louise Palmer-Masterton , who is the founder of multiple award-winning restaurants Stem & Glory.

The first in this series is a delicious Vegan BLT. So if you want to cook something that is part of an award-winning restaurants menu, now is your chance!

The ‘VLT’ (Vegan BLT)

Makes 2-4 rounds of sandwiches depending on the bread size

This has been on our menu at Stem & Glory Cambridge for years and it’s an absolute winner.

The trick is making the tempeh bacon super thin and super crispy and having just the right amount of mayo to make it sing!


Sticky Pork with Asian Slaw

Sticky Pork with Asian Slaw

We eat a lot of Asian food and this Sticky Pork with an Asian Slaw didn't disappoint. It was really quick to prepare and cook and even though I needed to pay full price for the pork steaks because there was nothing in the yellow sticker section, it still came in at under a fiver for all of us.


homemade sushi

Homemade Sushi with delicious Scottish Salmon

We love homemade sushi, not only is it delicious, with a bit of practice it is fairly easy to make. It is also a great way to get the kids involved in the kitchen with the rolling process. I was pleasantly surprised to find a piece of Scottish Salmon in the yellow sticker section of my local supermarket recently. Before deciding on Sushi I browsed the internet for other Salmon recipes. While browsing I stumbled on
The Fishermens Mission
.For those like me who didn't know what they do, please head over and check out their website and support them where you can. The Fishermen’s Mission is the only fishermen’s charity that provides emergency support alongside practical, financial, spiritual and emotional care. We help all fishermen, active or retired, and their families.More than 13,000 people work in fishing: the UK’s toughest and most dangerous peacetime occupation.At sea, they face death and injury with an average of 15 fishermen killed or seriously injured every year.On land, many struggle with insecurity and debt. And for the 50,000 retired fishermen andtheir families, the fishing may have ended but the hardship continues as they face debt,scant savings, loneliness and isolation.Arguably, without
The Fishermens Mission
and the amazing work they do, we wouldn't have the vast and delicious range of fish products available to us at the supermarket or fishmongers. So, please head over to their site and support them if you can.


Easy sticky BBQ ribs

Easy sticky BBQ ribs - Perfect midweek meal

The kids love sticky ribs and these didn't disappoint. I was fortunate enough to find two packs in the yellow sticker section of the supermarket for £1.87 each. Originally I planned to do an Asian style meal with them but changed my mind at the last minute. This easy sticky BBQ ribs recipe only took about 5 minutes to prepare and was very easy to cook.

Easy no-knead bread recipe

A really light and fluffy bread. It would be ideal for dipping in vinegar and oil..... mmmmm yummy! This is a really simple recipe for some delicious and easy no-knead bread.


Easy Chicken Satay

Easy Chicken Satay with sticky rice and cucumber salad

Sometimes you need something quick and easy for your mid-week meals and this Chicken Satay recipe fits the bill well. Served with sticky rice and a cucumber salad, turns a traditional snack into an evening meal rather nicely.

Being unusually organised, I remembered to get the chicken breast out of the freezer in the morning, allowing them to be thoroughly defrosted by early evening.

It may appear to be a large list of ingredients. However a lot of it you may already have in the cupboard. It came in at just over £5 but did make enough for my lunch the next day.


Pork Fillet with Roasted Vegetables

Pork Fillet With Roasted Vegetables

This one-pot pork fillet with roasted vegetables recipe makes for a simple and cheap Sunday Roast. But being so easy and quick to prepare and cook it would also work for a delicious mid-week meal. The vibrant colours and amazing flavours run through the meal. The kids loved it and have already asked for it again. Why not give it a go and try it tonight ....
