Day 17 - 'Moxarella' Cheese
I first saw this recipe over on Lazy Vegan and couldn't resist adding it to the challenge. I've tried out a lot of dairy free cheeses over the last few months, including one previous attempt at making my own, but this cashew-based one - originally created by Veged Out - was so easy to make and tasted really good. I added it to the top of a lentil pasta bake but I think it would also be great for lasagne, pizza and even paired with pesto for a cheese toastie!
Day 18 - Veggie/Sausage Bake
For day 18 I had planned to test out my faux mozzarella cheese on a pizza recipe however things didn't quite work out. In need of an alternative I created this dish inspired by a pasta bake I'd seen on the BBC Good Food website. I switched out the rigatoni for carrots & red pepper, used vegan sausages then topped with some of the 'moxarella' before baking. It actually turned out to be pretty tasty and is definitely something I would make again.
Day 19 - Roasted Broccoli-Pepita Pesto Pasta
When choosing potential recipes for the challenge this simple pesto pasta from Blissful Basil was the first one I picked out! This roasted broccoli pesto with basil and pumpkin seeds was really easy to make and would be a perfect for a lazy day when you don't feel like spending too long in the kitchen.
Day 20 - Baked Onion Bhajis
At home when we make onion bhajis we usually opt for a fried version from A Saucy Kitchen but I thought it might be nice to also try out a baked alternative that could pair well with the rice paper samosas I made back on day 10 of the challenge. These baked bhajis based on a recipe from Harriet Emily were easy to make and had tons of flavour!
Day 21 - One Pot Spinach & Mushroom Pasta
Originally I have planned to try out a different recipe on day 21 but feeling ill meant that I definitely didn't feel up to standing in the kitchen for too long so I opted to try out this quick one pot pasta from Trial & Eater instead. The combination of mushrooms, tomato and spinach was simple yet delicious - the type of recipe to learn by heart for when you want a quick and tasty meal!
