There is something about an earthy onion, garlic and rosemary soup – I originally made this over Christmas and it served a delectable starter for guests I was staying with. A tribute to the wonderful cooking they had provided – this was my meagre offering in return…. The stock I used for the original dish was from the remnants of part boiled swede and parsley.

What to do next

Tag me on @ethiveganquantum on Instagram to show me what you’ve made and let me know you’re happy for me to share.

My recipes are featured in vegan speciality publications: Nourished, Vegan Life, Plant Based and Vegan, Food and Living.

Order my first self-published book, “Essence: The Beginner’s Guide to Veganism” part of the three-part Circle of Food series. My second book “Presence: The Ascending Vegan” – which explores how to maintain a vegan practice is out in 2027 – I have compiled all the chapters including recipes.

Going strong since 2013.
