This stunning recipe from The Wicked Healthy Cook Book by chef Chad Sarno uses banana blossom - the new all natural vegan meat substitute on the block. Chad says he learnt to make it in the Philippines while revamping a menu for the Farm at San Benito. Nice work if you can get it Chad. We appreciate that the star ingredient is not very local - but sometimes you've got to try these things - and banana blossom sounds too intriguing to resist.

Roasted Cauliflower Schwarma Steaks with Zhoug Couscous, Chickpeas, Tahini & Pomegranate 

Roasted Cauliflower Schwarma Steaks with Zhoug Couscous, Chickpeas, Tahini & Pomegranate 

Ohh get you with all those fancy words in the recipe title. This Middle Eastern inspired recipe comes from our pals over at Make Kit – the UK’s first veggie and vegan recipe bag social enterprise! Their co-founder and MIH cookery teacher Steve Wilson says about the recipe, “2017 was a game changing year for cauliflower. The humble cauli’s image went from a soggy side to becoming the alchemist’s dream ingredient. When roasted, it’s sweet, nutty, yeasty richness really gets a chance to shine. There’s also an element of theatricality to the cauliflower being served as a roasted centerpiece, with its burnt smoky edges and incredible Fibonacci marbling.” Yeah he said Fibonacci. We googled it to. But anyways – this tastes amazing and only takes 30 minutes to make. Enjoy.
