Roasted Tomato Compote with Fresh Basil

This roasted tomato compote with fresh basil recipe is pure gold. The combination of slow roasted fresh tomatoes in plenty of olive oil with a handful of fresh basil will make your taste buds sing. I like to spread it on home olive sourdough or add it as a topping to crispy vegan polenta cakes.

Vegan Bibimbap Bowl with Korean Tofu Crumble & Pickled Vegetables

Vegan Bibimbap Bowl with Korean Tofu Crumble & Pickled Vegetables

If you haven’t yet tried bibimbap, you’re missing out! Bibimbap, a Korean dish, means mixed ingredients (“bibim”) and rice (“bap”). Here, I’ve created a vegan version using a Korean-marinated tofu crumble and crispy rice. These ingredients are complemented by quick-pickled vegetables, roasted sweet potatoes and sautéed shiitake mushrooms. This vegan dish offers up a ton of flavor. It’s sweet, salty, spicy and a bit tangy with a ton of umami! It’s also a great dish to serve a crowd, offering up great aesthetics and the flexibility for each diner to build their own bowl.
