Viva!'s Moroccan Chickpea Stew

This is a lovely, flavoursome recipe that is very adapatable. We like cooked aubergine and red peppers in with it - but experiment! Like most stews, it tastes even nicer the next day.

Serve with a grain - this can be cooked while the stew simmers. It works well with

- wholemeal couscous
- wholemeal bulghur
- brown rice
- quinoa
- millet pilaf

Or flatbread, eg pitta or similar

Buckwheat Pancakes with Spinach and Vegan Cream Cheese

One of our special 'Mood Food' recipes - packed with lots of brain-boosting nutrients including B vitamins, omegas, amino acids, protein, magnesium and zinc - to help boost your mood, sharpen your mind and combat stress.

Paupers Greens & Potato Soup

Delicious yet frugal. This lovely, simple recipe is a great way of using up whatever is in your veg box or fridge because it works with different combinations of the onion family as well as different greens!

Potato and Nettle Soup

A lovely soup for Spring! Nettles are delicious - a bit like spinach - and are full of nutrients such as iron, Vitamin K, Vitamin C and more. They've been eaten throughout the UK and elsewhere for thousands of years. Use young nettle tops between March and June (any later and they aren't so good). Take a clean plastic bag and rubber gloves, wash them in a colander. Remove some of the woodier stalks with your rubber gloves still on. The sting cooks out almost immediately. Free and tasty food - what's not to like? 

Savoury Pancakes with Spinach Batter and Tomatoes

Looking for a quick filling lunch with a difference? Then look no further at this recipe for Savoury Pancakes with Spinach Batter and Tomatoes. Pretty cheap too...

Alternatively, add leftover cooked vegetables to the batter, eg peppers, broccoli, courgettes, diced potatoes, peas...

For a soya-free version, use rice, coconut or other plant milk - and a soya-free vegan cheese such as Redwood's.

Moroccan Chickpea Stew for Caterers

This lovely fragrant stew can be jazzed up with different accompaniments, such as hummus; baba ganoush; harissa paste; tabouleh salad or quinoa pilaf. It's cheap to make and ticks many boxes: low-fat, wheat-free, nut and soya-free etc.
