Instant Pot Colcannon

Last weekend, on Meal Prep Day, I had chili for lunch. With enough leftover for at least two suppers. I also had potatoes that needed using up. And I had a whole cabbage, so I figured colcannon might be a good idea. Now, I never made – or, in fact, even had – that before,…

Instant Pot Chili

Today is meal prep day again. So far, I cooked chickpeas, made two batches of hummus, a bottle of iced tea and a nice pot of vegan chili. I seriously love chili and could eat it every day. It’s one of my samefoods. My chili is made with dried red kidney beans, because why spend…

Instant Pot Dump Dinner

It’s been a busy day and I hadn’t even thought about supper yet. I also had not done a lot of meal prepping last weekend, because it was simply too hot. I don’t tolerate heat well. So now it was half seven, and I had yet to figure out what to eat for supper. I…

How to: Instant Pot Beans

Matzah Lasagna

Oven Roasted Veggies

I love oven roasted veggies and almost always make them during a meal prep session as they are easy, tasty and versatile. They’re so easy, I don’t even have a real recipe for them. I also won’t be giving you exact amounts, because that really depends on what you want and how much you’ll be…

Lentil Shepherd’s Pie

When days are short and it’s cold and wet outside, what’s better than a piping hot, comforting Shepherd’s Pie? A vegan Shepherd’s Pie, of course. Made with lentils instead of meat. Ingredients 1 cup dried green lentils 2 large carrots 2 large, firm tomatoes 1 onion garlic, to taste 150 g (5 oz) mushrooms 1…

Instant Pot Aubergine Curry

I love my curries. They’re easy to make, taste great and they’re versatile. They allow you to use up all those leftovers that might otherwise go to waste in your fridge. You can make a nice big pot, store it in the fridge and serve with rice, polenta, (gluten free) noodles or bread. That’s four…
