EGGLESS SPANISH TORTILLA
How to make:
Pre-heat the oven to 200°C. Peel and slice the potatoes to the thickness of a fifty pence piece. Mix the sliced potatoes with 1 tbsp of the olive oil, onion powder and garlic granules until evenly coated. Spread the potatoes out in a thin even layer over a large baking tray and cook in the oven for about twenty five minutes - or until just cooked and a few are starting to brown around the edges.
In the meantime, heat the remaining 1 tbsp olive oil in a heavy based frying pan over a medium heat. add the sliced onions and cook gently for fifteen to twenty minutes, stirring regularly until they are soft and slightly caramelised.
Whisk the water and chickpea flour, Kala namak (Indian Black Salt) until smooth. Mix the potatoes, onions, chickpea paste and seasoning until thoroughly and evenly combined. Line the oven-proof dish (approx 25cm x 9cm x 4cm completely with baking parchment. Pour the mixture into the dish and spread until even. Place in the oven and bake for twenty minutes.
Remove from the oven and when cool enough to handle, turn out carefully by upturning onto a plate, and then turn back again onto a chopping board so the golden brown side is uppermost.
Allow to cool to room temperature before serving or refrigerating. serve at room temperature or slightly warmed.
SEITAN BLACK BEAN STIR FRY
- To create the sauce, use a food processor to blitz the beans with the rest of the ingredients and add 50ml water. Add the seasoning then blend it on high until you have a smooth sauce consistency. Next, pour the sauce into a saucepan and heat gently for about 5 mins or until thick and glossy.
- Drain the seitan and pat dry with kitchen paper. Toss the seitan pieces in a bowl with the cornflour and set aside. Heat your wok to a high temperature, add a little oil, then the seitan – you might need to do this in batches. Stir-fry for around 5 mins until golden brown at the edges. Remove the seitan from the wok using a slotted spoon and set aside on a plate.
- If the wok is dry at this stage, add 1 tsp vegetable oil. Add the shallots and stir-fry until soft. Throw in the chopped peppers, the rest of the beans, pak choi and spring onion. Cook for 3-4 mins, then return the seitan to the pan, stir in the sauce and bring to the boil for 1 min.
- Serve with cooked rice or noodles.

- Heat the oil and the butter in a saucepan until bubbling over a gentle heat.
- Add the mushrooms and sautee for a few minutes until lightly coloured and tender.
- Add the garlic, the Nooj cream and season with salt and pepper to taste.
- Simmer to reduce the cream until thickened and coating the mushrooms. remove from the heat.
