Tofu curry with rice

20130502-224042.jpg

This dish, though it doesn’t look quite as appetising as some of the others I’ve posted, is an absolute staple for me. Plus it is mega handy if you’ve been indulging lately and want to eat something that’s light but filling: it’s relatively low in calories but it’s packed full of energy. I make a good load of it at the weekend and bring it to college for my lunch and it fills you for the day.

It’s a really simple recipe too (thank god). I stir fry the onions in soy sauce and sometimes include peppers (though I haven’t here). Whip in some curry powder and tofu and parsley or spring onion/leek and put it with rice. For the best taste and the most energy, I do brown rice with vegetable stock. And that’s it: make loads of it and it’ll do about three days’ worth of dinner. With relatively little fuss. Enjoy!

Home-Made Pizza

This pizza is straight up an example of why I should have learned how to cook, and properly, a long time ago. On a recent trip to my friend’s house, she put us all to shame by serving up these pizza bases and loads of different toppings and we helped ourselves.

It was a brilliant idea: as a vegetarian eating in a friends’ house can sometimes be a complete disaster (Though mine are usually very accommodating) and this was great: everybody could tuck in to whatever they liked.

They looked absolutely gorgeous too, and believe me they tasted amazing. Because of the size of them, my friend popped them onto baking sheets and could cook enough for 8 people all at the same time. Voilà.

Definitely one that we will be attempting again I think !

The toppings shown here are mozzarella, sweetcorn, green and red peppers, red onion and some rocket on top. Other toppings that Ró included were pepperoni and chicken for the meat eaters (not shown here).

The rectangular shape of the pizzas meant that she could fit loads into the oven at once, so we were all eating at the same time. Savage idea!
