Marinara
Servings: sandwiches
Instructions
Vegan Meatballs
  1. Add the soy protein to a bowl and pour over the stock. Allow to soak in for about 5 minutes. Add the tomato puree, soy sauce, breadcrumbs, nutritional yeast, onion powder, garlic powder and herbs and mix well by hand. Form into balls.
  2. Fry in a little olive oil for 10 minutes until browned and crispy.
Marinara
  1. Add the chopped tomatoes, tomato puree, onion, garlic, extra virgin olive oil, oregano and red chilli flake into a high speed blender and blend until smooth.
The Sandwich
  1. Slice a sub roll in half and lay down 2 slices of vegan cheese (like they do in Subway!). The cheese acts as a shield preventing the bread going soggy! Add the meatballs and a tablespoon of marinara per ball. Bake for 5-10 minutes until the bread starts to go crispy. Sprinkle over nutritional yeast and fresh parsley.

Vegan Pepperoni
Print Recipe
This vegan pepperoni is made out of seitan, and is so easy and cheap to make. It's dense, spicy and very tasty! Great on pizza (of course!), in a sandwich or just on its own as a snack! I also have a Vegan Salami recipe which is slightly less dense and juicier, ideal for sandwiches.

  2. Add all the wet ingredients and mix in the water slowly. If you need to add more, go ahead. If you used too much water then sprinkle in a bit more gluten.
  3. Roll out into a sausage shape.
  4. Wrap in foil and bake for 90 minutes. It should be quite dense. Slice it up and enjoy!

Vegan Chilli Cheese

Vegan Chilli Cheese
Print Recipe
This vegan "cheese" is made with cashews, almond milk and a couple of different starches. Agar Agar powder holds it all together. This type is fairly soft, but it can be sliced, spread and it melts! Not really ideal for grating, although it does work on a pizza and cheese on toast! Next time I'll make a harder cheese that's better for grating and sandwiches.

Ingredients

Instructions
  1. Mix the agar agar powder and almond milk in a pan and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to a simmer.
  2. Add cashews, oil, salt, vinegar, turmeric, garlic, nutritional yeast, chilli, both starches, gram flour, lemon juice and 150ml water to a blender. Blend until the mixture is very smooth.
  3. Add the blended mixture to the pan with the agar agar and almond milk and turn up the heat so it's simmering. Cook for about 10 minutes until it becomes thick, like very thick pancake batter. If it's thick before it's had a chance to cook then add a splash of almond milk; you don't want to under cook it or you'll taste the raw gram flour and starches. Quickly transfer to a greased glass dish or ramekins before the agar agar sets.
  4. Set aside to cool for an hour before transferring to the fridge. Come back a few hours later and it would have set. It should just fall out of the container fairly easily.
Recipe Notes

When the mixture is boiling away, you could add some sweet jalapenos, habaneros, more garlic and rosemary to make more of a Pepper Jack style cheese. Or you could leave out the chilli altogether to make a mild cheese. To make it harder and grateable, reduce the amount of almond milk and water you use.

Quick & Easy Pizza Dough
Print Recipe
Homemade pizza needn't be difficult! Spend a mere 10 minutes making the dough and then load it with your favourite toppings. It easily beats any pre-made base you can buy in the shops! This recipe is for a large, deep-pan style pizza. If you'd prefer a thin base, either half the required ingredients or split the dough into two and make two pizzas!

Instructions
Batter
  1. Add the flour, nutritional yeast, salt, pepper, smoked paprika, garlic powder and oregano to a bowl and mix well with a whisk. Slowly mix in the water until smooth.
Buffalo Sauce
  1. In a glass jug empty the bottle of Frank's and add 2 Tbsp of dairy-free spread. Heat in the microwave for about 2 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Garlic Dip
  1. Mix 2 Tbsp of vegan mayo with the chopped garlic, parsley, cider vinegar and salt & pepper and mix well.
Cauliflower
  1. Heat about 200ml oil in a deep pan.
  2. Cut the cauliflower into florets. I cut mine into about 12 pieces this time, getting rid of the thick trunk bit. Cut smaller for bite-sized pieces.
  3. Dip the cauliflower into the batter and gently place in the hot oil for 2-3 minutes, turning every minute until golden and crispy.
  4. In a large bowl, pour the Frank's over the hot cauliflower pieces and mix it up well. Remove them from the bowl so they stay crispy. Serve on gem lettuce leaves with celery sticks and garlic dip.
