Teriyaki Tahini Aubergine with polenta crust sweet potato
An explosion of flavours, textures and ingredients all on one plate to create the most delicious vegan dish. Who ever said eating plant based was boring, seriously never tried any of my recipes…
This dish is perfect for you if you love asian and mediterranean flavours. It’s a fusion of both combining the sweet stick asian flavours of japan with fragrant creamy flavours from the middle east.
Give it a go and see how you love it, I promise it won’t disappoint..
