    1 large carrot, grated
    1 small onion, grated
    salt to taste
    egg replacer, equivalent to 2 eggs

    # 2 tbsp cornstarch = 1 egg
    # 2 tbsp arrowroot flour = 1 egg
    # 2 tbsp potato starch = 1 egg
    # 1 heaping tbsp soy powder + 2 tbsp water = 1 egg
    # 1 tbsp soy milk powder + 1 tbsp cornstarch + 2 tbsp water = 1 egg.
    # 1 banana = 1 egg in cakes.
    # 1 tbsp milled flax seed and 3 tbsp water = 1 egg.

    Thai pumpkin and lentil soup

    Half a pumpkin, chopped into cubes
    1 onion
    1 clove of garlic
    1 red chilli, chopped
    Dash of olive oil
    Half a bunch of fresh coriander, chopped finely
    Tin of coconut cream
    1 cup of dried red lentils (don't soak or pre-cook)
    About 250ml vege stock

    1. Cut onion, crush garlic, saute in oil.
    2. Add lentils, fry for about a minute
    3. Add pumpkin
    4. Stir in coconut cream and stock, stirring
    5. Simmer until pumpkin tender and lentils very soft (maybe 20 minutes)
    6. Stir in coriander and cook for further 5 minutes
    7. Blend if you like, or serve chunky with crusty sourdough

    Variations:
    ~ If I'm feeling extravagant, I might crush up a paste of coriander seeds, garlic, ginger, chilli, a lemon grass stem, a bit of sea salt and olive oil in my mortar and pestle, and use that in place of the garlic/ coriander/ chilli.
    ~ In summer, I add the pulp of a very ripe mango, blend the soup until it's smooth, and serve it chilled.

    1 block of firm tofu
    knob of ginger, grated
    1 clove garlic, crushed
    half a cup of tamari or good quality soy sauce

    2. Slice tofu into slabs about 1.5cm thick and place in marinade in the fridge for at least 2 hours, overnight's even better

    7. Add tofu cubes and toss through.

    Spinach and Potato Dhal

    2 tbsp olive oil
    1 large onion, finely chopped
    1 tbsp curry powder
    2 tsp ground cumin
    2 tsp ground coriander
    3 potatoes, diced
    1 cup red lentils
    2 3/4 cups vegetable stock
    1 bunch spinach, finely chopped

    Heat oil in pan over medium heat. Add onion and cook, stirring until soft. Add curry powder, cumin and coriander and cook, stirring, until fragrant. Add potato to the spice mixture and stir to coat. Add lentils and stock and bring to simmer. Reduce heat to low and cook, stirring occasionally, until potato is tender. Add spinach to the potato mixture and cook, stirring occasionally, until spinach wilts.

    Ruby loved this but you have to blend the spinach and onion. Also the "fresh" herbs in a tube have whey in them, so are not vegan.
