QUICK KEBABS:-

1 block of marinated tofu

4 tomatoes cut into quarters or

16 cherry tomatoes

2 courgettes cut into 1” slices

8 small mushrooms

1 onion – peeled, quartered and separated into layers

14-16 mint leaves

Olive oil (4 tbsp)

Soy sauce (2 tsp)

Lime juice (1 lime)

1 tsp coconut palm sugar

Skewers

Cut tofu into 1-2 inch cubes.

Assemble all veg onto skewers alternately with mint leaves and tomato.

Mix soy sauce, lime juice, oil and sugar in a small bowl and brush tofu and veg.

Oil grill rack and cook for around 7- 8 mins – keep brush-ing with sauce as cooking.

SALAD:-

1 large pomegranate – seeded or 1 carton of fresh pomegranate seeds

1/2 cup of fresh lemon or lime juice

2 tbsp of olive oil

1 tsp Dijon mustard

Rock or sea salt and black pepper

2 bunches or 1 bag of organic fresh spinach

2 tbsp of mixed seeds

1 Has avocado

Whisk lemon/lime juice, mustard and oil, season with salt and pepper.

Toss spinach, seeds, pomegranate with dressing in a bowl.

Slice avocado on top and drizzle with remaining lemon/lime juice.

PATATAS BRAVAS

3 tsp of olive oil

1 small onion (chopped)

3 garlic cloves (chopped)

1 can of chopped tomatoes

A dash of any plant milk (I used almond)

2 small hot chillies

1/2 tsp coconut palm sugar

Around 800-900g potatoes

3 tbsp of olive or coconut oil

2 tsp boullion stock powder

Put potatoes on to boil with some rock/sea salt.

Fry onion and garlic in some oil.

Add chillies cook on a low heat for 5 mins or until onions are soft.

Add tomatoes, sugar and boullion powder-cook for a further 10 mins on low until sauce thickens.

Add almond milk-just enough to turn the sauce orange.

Zap with a hand blender but leave it a bit chunky – set aside.

When potatoes are just about cooked (15 mins) drain and dry with clean tea towel.

Heat the oil in a large pan – when quite hot-toss potatoes around until they are all covered in the oil and move around pan until they are all browned slightly.

Drain onto kitchen towel then into a large dish – pour sauce over top and serve (preferably with a nice chilled glass of wine!).

Perfect for a summer BBQ!
