Recipe: Classic Çoban Salata or Shepherd’s Salad

I was thinking the other day… I actually don’t have a recipe for this absolute classic salad which is one of the most popular in Turkey. Çoban Salata, that is—or Shepherd’s Salad in English. I have a regional version of it somewhere on VegFusion with a terrible photo but not the actual, the most classical… Continue reading Recipe: Classic Çoban Salata or Shepherd’s Salad

Recipe: Aloo Matar (Potatoes and Peas)

Aloo Matar (Potatoes with Peas) is one of my favourite vegetarian Indian dishes of all time. Partly because it was the first Indian dish I ever learnt to cook. Aloo means potato and matar means peas, by the way. It is a dry style Indian dish which can be added to other dishes like a… Continue reading Recipe: Aloo Matar (Potatoes and Peas)

Udon Noodles with Shiitake Mushrooms and Chilli

This recipe makes such an easy lunch. It is for 1 person. If you need to cook for more than 1 person, double or triple the measurements except for the chilli sauce. The one I used certainly has a punch. I would add that gradually. Please note that the noodle bowl in this photo is… Continue reading Udon Noodles with Shiitake Mushrooms and Chilli

Mushroom and Vegan Bacon on Toast

I know I have been neglecting VegFusion a lot recently. Here’s why: (1) I have just stated to write something other than recipe writing (2) I have been busy with tidying up my Turkish recipe archive. For reason number 1: I started to get up as early as 5 o’clock every morning to work on… Continue reading Mushroom and Vegan Bacon on Toast

Vegan Salad Niçoise

Something French for VeganMoFo Day 4 Salad Niçoise (pronounced nee-suaz) is essentially a French salad from Provence. The main ingredients are green beans, potatoes, olives, hard boiled eggs and tuna. I used Lamyong chunky fish instead of tuna and completely left the eggs out to make it vegan. You may argue the fact that Salad… Continue reading Vegan Salad Niçoise

Vegan Haydari – Turkish Yoghurt Dip

Another “veganised” mezze from Turkish cuisine. The original is made from thick, strained yoghurt. I substituted the yoghurt with Tofutti Sour Supreme and lemon juice in this recipe although the original recipe does not call for any lemon juice. Not quite the same but very close. Serving Suggestion: Serve Vegan Haydari with Fry’s Vegetarian Chicken-Style… Continue reading Vegan Haydari – Turkish Yoghurt Dip

Deep-Fried Spiced Baby Potatoes

I am the queen of doing things differently. Let me explain; the recipe below is from Meena Patak’s cookbook called Indian Cooking for Family and Friends. I remember making it once before although I cannot remember what changes I made on the day. Because this is something I do. I add something, change things. This… Continue reading Deep-Fried Spiced Baby Potatoes

Mine’s Hummus, Turkish Cypriot Style

Although I come from “that” part of the world, I have never been a huge fan of Hummus. I still pushed myself every now and then and tried making some but each attempt turned into a unique disaster in some unique way. You know the supermarket ones over here are a different story altogether. They… Continue reading Mine’s Hummus, Turkish Cypriot Style
