'Serene Cuisine' Menu 24/7/15

Welcome Back To My Kitchen


Hello again from the just frank kitchen as we near the end of another month and find ourselves two-thirds of the way through Winter.

Where does the time go!

As a Wintery chill remains a constant in the air, the only signs I see that Spring is on the horizon, are the masses of flowering Daffodils and Jonquils in mine and other people's gardens, and a lovely sight they are too.


Delicious, Nutritious And Cruelty Free


I am sure you are all aware by now that cooking is a passion of mine and that the greatest joy I derive from the art of cooking is knowing that every stage of the process is cruelty-free.

Finding ways to 'veganise' a regular recipe, as well as developing my own from scratch challenges me to find new, exciting and natural ways to bring tasty and nutritious meals to the table, and now, to you.


For those of you who are already on a whole food, plant-based path, you would have experienced a range of health benefits that come with adopting this loving and compassionate way of living, both physically and spiritually.

For those of you who simply love the food that I offer here at just frank, I thank you for your support and for the difference you are making by simply choosing to 'go vegan' for this one meal. Believe me, you are making a difference.

Red Lentil Dahl



This week on the menu I will be revamping one of my favourite lentil dishes to incorporate some locally grown potatoes that I have been fortunate enough to source.

My Red Lentil Dahl has been a very popular menu item in the past, and with the addition of garlic roasted potatoes this week, I am sure it's popularity will continue to grow.

I have added a piece of Wholemeal Flat-bread to the menu as the perfect dipping companion to your creamy lentils.


Back By Very Popular Demand



By far the two most asked for desserts are my Apple Cake and Apple Shortcake.

After a request from one of my lovely regulars last Friday, (OK, she pretty much begged!) this week I have Apple Cake with Cinnamon Frosting and Walnuts on the lunch menu.

This beautifully moist cake has a layer of grated apple and cinnamon running through the centre and is topped with a cinnamon frosting and walnuts.

And yes, it's as good as it sounds!



No Meals Next Friday 31/7/15



Just a heads up, there will be no meals next week as I will be away.
Meals will resume as normal the following week, 7/8/15, and I will certainly look forward to seeing you all again then.

'Serene Cuisine' Menu 17/7/15

Welcome Back To My Kitchen


Oh dear! This weather! I'm sure you are all feeling the cold this week as a cold snap blankets the region and in fact most of the lower part of the country. 
It's been quite a struggle prising myself out of bed on these freezing cold mornings which is unusual for me seeing as I am naturally a morning person. 
"This too shall pass," and it's with this knowledge that I soldier on regardless.


Hearty And Delicious

With Winter apparently here to stay for a while, I am making recipe selections with this firmly in mind.
This week I will be cooking up a beautiful, hearty Italian Minestrone Soup with all the trimmings. 
A huge variety of winter veggies, beans, chickpeas and pasta with just the right blend of herbs.
This will be on the menu with the option of  delicious Garlic and Olive Scone.


Healthy and Chocolatey, What A Combination!


As always, the chocolate lovers haven't been forgotten!
On the dessert menu is my Crispy Wholemeal Chocolate Slice with Chocolate Icing with a sprinkling of chopped and toasted Walnuts, which are freshly shelled and locally grown. 
This slice is full of flavour and is naturally high in fibre.

'Serene Cuisine' Menu 10/7/15

 Hello From My Kitchen


With so many beautiful dishes to choose from, (and if I weren't the chronic procrastinator that I am) it's often difficult to narrow down what I am going to have on the menu for you each week. This week has been no exception, but I have finally made a decision.

                                                                                                        Everybody Loves Pasta


This week as the main meal, I will be making my version of Alfredo Pasta, obviously without the cream. The Alfredo sauce consists of a creamy blend of roasted sweet potato and herbs served over a bed of pasta and topped with my own vegan parmesan cheese.
Herb and garlic bread will also be on offer as the perfect accompaniment.




And Then There's Chocolate


Dessert this week is an incredibly moist piece of chocolate cake with chocolate frosting and a sprinkling of locally grown, organic walnuts. I don't know about you, but I always think chocolate cake and walnuts are the perfect 'marrying' of ingredients.
