Anyway, this is a good example of Turkish comfort food and I sometimes crave it myself too. The day I made the decision to make… Continue reading Spinach with Eggs or Yumurtalı Ispanak

Corn Omelette with Tomato and Cucumber Salad is perfect lunch for 2. I make this omelette in an electric non-stick pan, then cut it in half.

Toasted Vegan Faux-Tuna Salad Sandwich

We used to make tuna salad sandwiches at The Family Tree Restaurant but I think I like the vegan version better. Somehow they are fresher without being fishy although my version is not one of those more sophisticated versions around. I had these sandwiches when John was in London and as being the only one… Continue reading Toasted Vegan Faux-Tuna Salad Sandwich

Vegan Gözleme with Spinach and Onion

Spinach has air pockets in its leaves. With heat they release the air and this is the reason why spinach shrinks while being cooked. I used frozen spinach for this recipe but if you have the chance to use fresh spinach your Gözleme will sure taste better although the frozen option is more practical. For… Continue reading Vegan Gözleme with Spinach and Onion

Baby Spinach and Chickpeas Salad with Fry’s Schnitzels and Tangy Dressing

My lunch today was shaped up around some excess in the house. I think, I may have gone crazy for Fry’s Vegetarian Crumbed Schnitzels at some stage as I found out today that I have 3 unopened packs of it in the freezer and some free floating ones as well. How did this happen? Absolutely… Continue reading Baby Spinach and Chickpeas Salad with Fry’s Schnitzels and Tangy Dressing
