Maple Figs on Toast

Maple Figs on Toast

Figs remind me of childhood weekends with my Nana. She used to make the best fig jam. This recipe for maple figs on toast is super simple and super tasty. I’ve used a beautiful soft vegan cheese from Miyoko’s which is available in many Woolworth stores and other speciality stores in Australia.

Vegan Sausage Rolls

Vegan Sausage Rolls

One of the things I miss most being vegan is a good old sausage roll. I used to love the Mrs Macs giant sausage rolls we’d get in Western Australia before I went vegan. It’s been over a year since I’ve tasted that flavour but now I can’t get enough of these vegan sausage rolls, which are a lot healthier, too.

Vegan Pies – Chunky “Steak” and Mushroom

Vegan Pies – Chunky “Steak” and Mushroom

The Aussie “Meat” Pie

The meat pie is an Aussie favourite and one of the things I’ve definitely missed since going vegan. As you’ve probably noticed from some of my recent recipes, I’ve been building my confidence working with pastry. To be honest, even though I’ve been using frozen pastry in these recipes, I’ve never done much with it until recently. When I found out that most frozen puff and shortcrust pastry is vegan, I thought I’d get more into it. These vegan pies are are rich and full of flavour and really remind me of biting into a big meat pie pre-vegan.

Funky Fields Vegan Moussaka

Funky Fields Vegan Moussaka

I was inspired to try making this dish again after seeing so many great examples on my recent trip to Greece. It’s such a staple on the menu of most restaurants I visited in Athens and Mykonos and whenever I’ve had it before I’ve loved it. I have mad a version before with lentils but I wasn’t entirely happy with it. This one is so much better. In this Vegan Moussaka I’ve used Funky Fields mince to give a traditional meaty texture. I’m building up a collection of Funky Fields recipes as it’s my favourite new product to hit Aussie shelves.
