In a bowl mix the wine, tomato purée and cinnamon together, then pour it over the vegetables. Add the lentils and the chopped parsley, season well and let everything simmer gently while you make the topping. All you do is place the milk, flour, butter and nutmeg in a saucepan and, using a balloon whisk, whisk until it comes to simmering point and becomes a smooth glossy sauce. Season with salt and pepper, remove it from the heat and let it cool a little before whisking in the ricotta followed by the beaten egg.
Vegetarian food How to cook the perfect vegetable lasagne | Vegetarian food
Lamb is in peak condition in mid-summer, as it has then had the benefit of the sweet, young, spring grazing. Because the vegetables are very slowly cooked, this soup has lots of lovely flavour, and it's quite satisfy... Well, here it is, and I would add that it also goes very well with Traditional Bread Sauce or Cranberry and Orange Relish. (The Sage Derby cheese gives a lovely flavour but I know that some of you may have difficulty getting hold of it, so Lancashire is my suggested substitute with your own chopped, fresh or dried sage leaves.) Vegetarians might like to know that a vegetarian parmesan-style cheese is available from Bookham and Harrison Farms LtdBlanch the beans, potatoes, carrots and cauliflower by placing them in a pan containing 13/4 pints (1 litre) of boiling, salted water. Start off by preparing the courgettes and aubergine an hour ahead of time: chop them into 1½ inch (4 cm) chunks, leaving the skins on, and layer them in a colander with a sprinkling of salt between each layer. Most of the recipes I try include an umami-rich element in homage to the original meat filling. Cheese will do that job perfectly, of course, as well as adding fat, so if you use it, fold in grated hard cheese of your choice to taste (about 50g should do, but it will vary depending on strength; you’ll need less mature cheddar than red leicester, for example). Soy sauce is a popular vegan alternative, and makes an appearance in both Elliot’s and Young’s versions, with the latter also adding miso paste for an extra hit of savoury flavour; Bosh, meanwhile, use nutritional yeast, which always reminds me, not unpleasantly, of Quavers. All of these are excellent choices, but I like to keep things simple with a spoonful of Marmite, which is something I always have in the house anyway. If you don’t care for it, choose one of the above instead. The seasoning

Mix the ricotta with the toasted pine nuts and about three-quarters of the pecorino. Season to taste. Weigh this down with a heavy object (like scale weights) and after 30 minutes quite a bit of water will have been drawn out. Dry them really thoroughly in a clean cloth and then they're ready to cook. Heat the oil in a frying pan large enough to hold the courgettes in one layer (otherwise do them in two batches), add the crushed garlic and sauté the courgette slices to a nice golden colour on each side. Next arrange layers of courgettes, cheese slices and sliced tomatoes in a heatproof gratin dish so that they overlap each other slightly like slates on a roof. You can watch how to skin tomatoes in our Cookery School Video.When I wrote my Summer Collection book I felt I'd got Caesar Salad as perfect as it could be, but then I ate so many Caesar Salads that I began to get bored.

This combination of earthy cep mushrooms and sweet caramelised onions is divine, and comes to us courtesy o... Good old rice salad is an absolute must at a buffet party. This one, made with wild rice, looks very pretty... Delia studied English cookery books at the British Museum to find inspiration for cooking meals for family and friends, with mixed success. One of her first television experiences was as an assistant on a food advertisement. When someone dropped a pie just before filming began, she volunteered to make the replacement. The rest, as they say, is history. Begin by preparing the aubergines: to do this cut them into ½ inch (1 cm) dice leaving the skins on. Whiting fillets, or fillets of any white fish, instantly become more special when made into a fluffy soufflé.Delia left school at 16 with no qualifications and worked as a trainee hairdresser, then a shop assistant and later at a travel agency. At age 21, she spent time washing up in a restaurant, and this experience piqued her interest in cooking. However, she says it was when a boyfriend kept praising his former girlfriend's talents in the kitchen that she got fed up and started cooking seriously. Delia Smith’s veg sausage rolls: cheddar, breadcrumbs and cream. Thumbnails by Felicity. The ‘meat’ Many of these regional variations are vegetarian already, which means the idea of the "perfect" version is somewhat vexed. I decided instead to try to come up with a recipe that would be as satisfying for all concerned as the classic ragu-based variety. I love to make this with dried morels, which are available from specialist food shops, but dried porcini wi...

This recipe includes a 500ml bottle of strong dry cider, which altogether is the exact amount required for ... If you are cooking a double quantity, measure out half of them into a bowl and when they have got quite cold, cover the bowl with clingfilm and store in the fridge.) Next prepare the aubergines: place the cubes in a colander, sprinkle them with a little salt, then cover with a plate weighted down with a saucer topped with some scale-weights. Leave them to drain for 20 minutes, then squeeze them dry in a clean tea-cloth. Having combed my bookshelves, and the internet, I’ve concluded that meat-free sausage rolls fall into a number of broad camps. The first, represented here by Christmas queen Delia Smith, though also favoured by the likes of Gary Rhodes and Prue and Peta Leith, relies on cheese. Cheddar, in Smith’s case, flavoured with grated onion and chopped herbs, bulked out with soft breadcrumbs and moistened with cream. And I can see why so many of you recommended them to me – they’re as rich and satisfyingly greasy (and I mean that in a good way) as the real thing, with an emphatically savoury flavour. My concern, however, apart from the fact that they occupy much the same party-food space as a cheese straw, is that they’re not vegan-friendly. Roll the filling up in the pastry like a bug in a rug, as Young recommends, rather than folding over in the more traditional but also more fiddly fashion, then brush with milk or egg, sprinkle with a few seeds to make it party ready, and you’ll have a sausage roll that everyone but the dog will enjoy.

Almost everyone suggests buying vegan puff pastry, which is certainly the easiest option, but, while all pastry is good, it’s hard to deny the fact that homemade pastry is usually better, and Smith’s flaky pastry always is. (Rhodes gives a vegetarian suet version, but that involves palm oil, so I’d prefer to steer clear.) It all depends how much time and patience you have.
