Creamy Chestnut Risotto (WITH VEGAN OPTION), 82p

Chestnuts may seem like a bit of a la-di-dah ingredient, but if you can wait until after the Christmas season, you can often find them reduced in supermarkets and their outlet stores as they try to shift their stock to make way for the next seasonal celebration. My best bargain was found by my friend Caroline, who came to see me one morning with half a dozen packets of Merchant Gourmet chestnuts reduced from £2 down to 20p a packet – which would be unfair of me to price them as such in this recipe, but does make it...

Vegan Nut Roast, 42p

I have made over a hundred variations on this nut roast since meeting Mrs J, who, along with my mother in law, is a lifelong vegetarian.

I almost had the audacity to call this recipe ‘Christmas-spiced Banana Bread’ as I am currently testing some new recipes for a December project (more on that below) but I didn’t think I could cope with the outrage of the Internet if I dared use the C-word halfway through September. So instead, euphemistically, this is an Autumn-spiced banana bread, warming, comforting, and pull-your-jumper-around-you warming delicious bliss. Based on the vegan banana bread recipe from A Girl Called Jack, but better. For best results you will need a small powerful blender to grind the spices into the sugar; I have...

(Vegan) Chicken Soup, 28p

This soup is as close to a chicken soup as any vegetarian or vegan one could possibly come, in my humble opinion, and it is made with some surprising ingredients! The star of the show is the stock; a must for the base of any good soup recipe. I used Osem chicken stock, which I got from my local Tesco Express – sources tell me they are 2 for a fiver there are the moment, for seriously large tubs of the stuff, so if you like the sound of it, now would be a good time to stock up!...
