Written by

Rukmini Iyer


05 July 2018

Who is the author: Talented food stylist and writer, Rukmini Iyer is the author of bestselling cookbook,The Roasting Tin. When Rukmini isn’t revolutionising the way we cook with her simple one-dish dinners, you’ll find her on photo shoots across London making all of the food look even more delicious.

What’s it about?: Having changed our lives for the better with The Roasting Tin, Rukmini is back with a new collection of recipes that leave the hard work to the oven, and this time they’re all vegan and vegetarian. Forget tasteless and unimaginative vegan and vegetarian dishes, with Rukmini’s recipes you won’t miss meat or dairy, thanks to plenty of seasonal vegetables, hearty grains and flavourful dressings. Perfect for busy midweek evenings when you don’t have the time or energy to spend hours cooped up in the kitchen, simply assemble the ingredients in your trusty roasting tin and let the magic happen while you enjoy your evening. Oh, and did we mention there will be much less washing up? Score.

Vegan recipes we love: Warming Sweet Potato and Mushroom Polenta with Tomatoes. Crispy Gnocchi with Mushrooms, Squash and Sage.

Vegetarian recipes we love: Crisp Cauliflower Steaks with Harissa and Goat’s Cheese. Oven Baked Shakshuka. Storecupboard Pasta Bake.

Perfect for: Fans of the orginal The Roasting Tin keen to add some new recipes to their repertoire, busy family cooks, vegetarians and vegans looking for some fast and simple midweek meal ideas, students, and anyone who relies on takeaways to get them through the week.
