Mustard tofu casserole – vegan gluten free recipe

Winter….. not my favourite season of the year but what I do like about it is that I can prepare lovely casseroles and one pot meals.

Growing up in Croatia where winters can be minus 10 degrees Celsius (soooo cold) my mum often made casseroles. I remember her making a delicious mustard casserole with onions and potato (and a protein source that shall remain nameless) and on a cold day like today I just had to recreate it in a vegan version.

This mustard tofu casserole is super easy. Preheat the oven, place a few ingredients in a pot and voila – a hot and moorish meal ready in no time.


Roast pumpkin spiced soup recipe vegan gluten free

This roast pumpkin spiced soup recipe is really a way to sneak tofu into our food without my husband noticing. He’s a pumpkin fan and not fond of tofu so I saw this a wonderful opportunity.

This pumpkin soup is also full of vegetable¬†goodness, with spinach and zucchini sneaked in for good measure. I used indian biryani paste as a way to spice things up a little. I’m not a natural in the kitchen so I use spice pastes where possible. There ain’t nothin wrong with a bit of help!

The roast pumpkin gives the soup a wonderful caramel taste. I served this with quinoa chia bread with hummus and olive oil. The garnish is some paprika, pink himalayan rock salt and crushed pistachios. YUM!
