How about this?
Broccolli and broad bean tajine
300 g Broccoli, Green, Raw, (10oz), broken into small florets
200 g Beans, Broad, (7oz), shelled (or use a 300g can, drained)
100 g Carrots, Old, Raw, (3 1/2oz), cut into fine strips
15 spray(s) Cooking Spray, Calorie Controlled
1 medium Onion, All Types, red, chopped
3 clove(s) Garlic, finely chopped
1 teaspoons (level) Cumin, Ground
1/2 teaspoons (as purchased) Cinnamon, Ground
1/2 teaspoons (level) Cardamom, Ground, ground
1 pinch Salt
1/8 teaspoons (ground) Pepper, Black (Whole, Cracked or Ground)
50 g Tomato Purče, (2oz)
400 g Tomatoes, Whole or Chopped, Canned, chopped
100 ml Wine, Red
150 g Couscous, Dried, (5oz)
300 ml Water, (1/2 pint) boiling
25 g Margarine, Soft, Polyunsaturated, (1oz) non-dairy
50 g Apricots, (2oz), chopped
10 individual Olives, in Brine, black, to garnish
4 sprig(s) Mint, Fresh
Plunge the broccoli, broad beans and carrots into boiling water to blanch them for about 4 minutes. Drain well. (If using canned broad beans, do not blanch them).
Heat the cooking spray in a large saucepan and gently fry the onion for 2-3 minutes, until transparent. Add the garlic and cook for another few minutes, then stir in the spices and black pepper and cook for a few seconds. Add a little salt, if you like. Add the tomato puree, canned tomatoes and red wine or water. Simmer for 5 minutes, then add the vegetables.
Put the couscous into a heatproof bowl and add the boiling water and margarine, stirring to mix. Add the apricots. Leave to stand for 4-5 minutes to absorb all the water, then fluff up with a fork.
Heap the couscous into bowls or onto plates and top with the vegetable mixture. Serve, garnished with olives and mint leaves.
Looks complicated for a working mommy but sounds yum! Thanks Emma. Might have to try it in the hols and freeze some.
I was thinking of making a cheese-free lasagne using soya cheese. I would also like to learn to make vegan cheesecake. We struggle around here a bit for the soya substitutes though. They just don't seem to stock them many places.
The reason I asked for vegan recipes is because technically I'm veggie, but since I also have a dairy intolerance I eat vegan quite a lot.
