Tempura mushroom rolls with coleslaw

There are a few things I’d never really eaten until I stopped eating meat – caponata, quinoa and tempura vegetables among them. However, over the past year or so, they’ve all become delicious, regular items…

Spiced pumpkin waffles

I was given a waffle maker for my birthday last week, so I knew that waffles would 100% be on the menu for breakfast this past weekend. However, I didn’t quite know what form…
