Vegan Pizza With Polenta Base

Vegan, gluten free pizza is so easy to make...


Polenta is a quick alternative to wheat for pizza dough, but it is pretty bland - so we always try adding extras to cheer it up...

For a large pizza - we measure out 1 litre of boiling water, using a little to fry garlic & onions in a large saucepan, along with basil, oregano & smoked paprika. We also add sea salt & lots of crushed black pepper (otherwise it's just too bland for us). Once the onions & garlic are softened, we add the rest of the water & bring to the boil. Take the pan off the heat & stir in the polenta (250g to 1 litre of water). A hand blender is good to make sure it's mixed in properly & we use greaseproof paper so it doesn't stick on the tray. Once it's spread evenly on the tray, stick it in a hot oven for about 15 minutes - until it's just starting to brown. Leave to cool.

Choose your veggies...
We started with a layer of passata, then scrambled tofu, sliced steamed potatoes, sun dried tomatoes, mushrooms, courgette & red pepper. Topped with more black pepper & oregano.
Bang it in a hot oven for around 20 minutes...

We'll never win awards for presentation, but there you have it!

Really easy to make, vegan, gluten-free pizza... Delicious!!!

It's my lovely wife's 45th birthday today and it's great to see her having such a nice time.  We had a bit of a lie-in, then Kay said that she'd like to go to the new Eden Project Cafe in St.Austell for breakfast. The food didn't disappoint (see photos). 


Good portions of quality nosh prepared with love and a flair for presentation. Rival cafes, take note: This is how it's done. Having dined there recently, we were aware of their "Book Swap" area.  Choose a book from home you wish to donate, write a brief piece in the inside cover and put it in the Swap Section. Then, if there's a book you fancy, take it home. Kay donated her favourite book "The Complete SAS Guide to Interrogation Techniques". I made that up. She actually donated the wonderful book "The Tibetan Book Of Living and Dying" by Sogyal Rinpoche, only because the last page is missing. Just joking. It was in pristine condition . I suggested selling it at a car boot sale i…

Rural Life

We live in a small hamlet of 14 households - all on one lane, but spread out & mainly detached, apart from the 3 barn conversions across from us. There have been a number of changes in the six years we have lived here, people moving in & out, houses renovated & extended, but for us - the worst thing is that the last few newcomers are city people. They have all spent thousands of pounds modernising their homes & turning them into fortresses. Fences & gates have been erected, security lights & alarms fitted...
I suppose most folks will think that they are being sensible, but it's changing the way our little place looks & feels & to me it seems that these modern extras will invite unwanted attention - it suggests there's something worth taking.What was once a simple, quaint little hamlet is fast becoming yet another exclusive part of rural Cornwall.  Only 3 of the 14 households are Cornish & they are all related, the rest (apart from us) are well …
