food painting for the vegetarian cookbook by Fiona Morgan
Creamy. Delicate. Quick. Easy.


Food painting artwork

30 x 30cm oil on canvas. In this piece I was aiming for a modern damask style arrangement that celebrates the crazy patterns of the walnut which is the centrepiece of this dish.

By the way, all the food painting artwork is available to own in the Official Art Store.


The meatless meals recipe

Hooray, another yummy pasta dish that does not involve tomatoes! This is so easy it almost doesn't count as cooking.

pasta for 4, something like spinach and ricotta ravioli is ideal
200g shelled walnuts
3 tablespoons olive oil
2 slices bread, no crust, soaked in milk
2/3 cup grated parmesan cheese
1 tablespoon butter
1 cup of the water used to cook the pasta (or other very hot water)
salt to taste ( this may be up to 1/2 teaspoon)
1 tablespoon fresh thyme

Cook the pasta.

Put the walnuts, olive oil, milk-soaked bread, parmesan and butter in a blender and whizz until smooth.
Taste and adjust for salt and mix thoroughly.
Pour onto cooked pasta and top with the fresh thyme.

Feeds 4.
