RECIPE IDEAS

SHOYU TOFU & SEAWEED QUINOA POKE BOWLS (VEGAN) Serves: 4 Ingredients: • 600g plain tofu, cut into bite size cubes • 1 onion, peeled, halved and thinly sliced • 3 spring onion, finely diced • 1cm fresh root ginger, peeled and finely grated • 15ml sesame oil • 50ml Kikkoman soy sauce • Juice of ½ fresh lime • 4 nori seaweed sheets • 1 tsp sesame seeds • 300g black quinoa • Sea salt

“ Poke is a traditional Hawaiian dish made usually of marinated fish, served over steamed rice; a take on Japanese sushi – formatted differently.

This easy to prepare vegan dish is delicious and extremely nutritious. Here the steamed rice is swapped with black quinoa seasoned with ground seaweed; packing the dish with protein and fibre, and adding a nice contrast of texture.” Paul Gayler

METHOD: 1. Place the dried nori seaweed sheets in a blender or food processor and blitz to fine powder; place to one side. 2.

Leave to marinade in the fridge for thirty minutes to one hour. 5. Meanwhile cook the quinoa; place it in a pan, cover with double the amount of water and a good pinch of salt. Bring to the boil and reduce the heat to a simmer for 12-15 minutes until all the water has evaporated and the quinoa is cooked. 6. Add the seaweed powder to the quinoa, fluff up with fork and transfer to four deep bowls. 7. Pile the tofu and dressing equally on top of the quinoa filled bowls and serve.

BROCCOLINI FREEKEH RISOTTO WITH RICOTTA AND LEMON Serves: 4 Ingredients: • 350g broccolini • 250g freekeh • 900ml vegetable bouillon • 60g sourdough breadcrumbs, toasted • Zest & juice of one lemon • 100g ricotta cheese • 50g basil leaves • 2 tbsp olive oil • 1 onion, finely chopped • 2 garlic cloves, crushed • 1 tbsp fennel seeds

“ Freekeh makes a lovely substitute for rice in this Italian classic, it has a delicious nutty flavour with a texture very similar to brown rice. The broccolini flavour is sweet, with notes of both broccoli and asparagus.” PAUL GAYLER

METHOD: 1. Place the basil and ricotta in a food processor with 1 tbsp lemon juice and 1 tbsp olive oil, blitzing until smooth. 2. Trim the broccolini stems and slice the flowers into small florets. 3. Bring the stock to the boil, blanch the broccolini for 2 minutes, refresh under cold water and drain well. 4. Heat remaining olive oil in a frying pan, add the onion, garlic, fennel seeds and cook for 2-3 minutes. 5. Add the freekeh and broccolis stems, stirring well to coat. 6. Add a ladle of hot bouillon, cook whilst stirring all the time, adding stock after each of the previous ladles has been absorbed. 7. Stir in the ricotta mixture and broccolis florets. 8. Divide the risotto between 4 serving bowls, scatter over the breadcrumbs. 9. Drizzle with a little olive oil and serve.

WHOLEGRAIN FREEKEH, ARTICHOKE AND FIG SALAD WITH BEETROOT ‘PASTRAMI’ Serves: 4 starters Ingredients: • 1 treviso radicchio lettuce, coarsely shredded • 2 Belgian endives, leaves separated • 150g baby spinach • Bunch fresh watercress, stalks trimmed • 200g wholegrain freekeh • 8 marinated baby artichokes in oil, drained and halved • 2 sticks celery, peeled and thinly sliced • 6 fresh ripe figs, halved FOR THE DRESSING: • Juice of 2 oranges (preferably blood oranges) • 1 tsp Dijon mustard • 75ml olive oil • 15ml walnut oil • 2 tbsp walnuts, toasted and coarsely chopped FOR THE BEETROOT ‘PASTRAMI’: • 4 raw medium beetroots, peeled • 1 tbsp cracked black pepper • 1 tsp ground coriander • 1 tbsp olive oil • 1 tsp smoked paprika • 1 tsp sea salt • 1 tsp sugar • ½ tsp cayenne pepper

METHOD: 1. Mix the pepper, salt, sugar, paprika, cayenne and coriander well together in a bowl. 2. Roll the peeled beets in the olive oil then pass them through the spices, ensuring they are completely coated in the spices all round. 3. Place in the fridge to marinade, at least overnight, or up to four days ahead if preferred. 4. Preheat the oven to 175ºC. 5.

Wrap the marinated beets in foil, place on a baking tray and roast in the oven for 1-1½ hours or until they are tender; remove and allow to go cold.

6. When cold slice thinly with a sharp knife, or for best results, a Japanese mandolin. 7.

Bring the freekeh to boil in 600ml of water then simmer gently for about 45 minutes until tender, drain well in a colander and leave to go cold.

8. For the dressing, whisk together the orange juice, mustard and both oils; season to taste and add the toasted walnuts. 9.

Place the lettuce, endive, celery, artichokes and cooked freekeh in a bowl along with the figs; pour over the dressing, toss gently together and season to taste.

10. Dress on four plates, garnish with the sliced beetroot pastrami to one side and serve.

“ This is a delicious winter salad packed with flavour; an ideal starter or double up if you prefer as a main. The beetroot adds a slightly aromatic yet spicy heart-warming flavour to the sala; it’s also great in a sandwich if you make spare!” PAUL GAYLER All products marked in bold are available to purchase through Vegetarian Express.
