    1. These stuffed tomatoes are sure to impress. (Hint: You can pause the video by clicking on it at any time.)

    Empty your tomatoes, fill them with a mix of corn, carrots, basil tofu, and pesto, and top with crumbs. Bake, then garnish with watercress.

    2. Here's an easy pasta dish with chicken and spinach.

    Just cook pasta, pan-fry chicken with stock, add spinach and cheese, and finish with a tomato sauce.

    3. Homemade salsa isn't hard.

    Use a skillet to dry-roast tomatoes, jalapeños, and garlic until their skins are browned. Peel everything, remove the tomato cores, and use a mortar and pestle to grind everything together, adding salt and coriander (cilantro).

    4. Cocoa + banana + oats = dessert.

    Make cookies using a batter made from mushed-up ripe bananas, oats, and hot chocolate mix. You can find the recipe for a version with peanut butter and applesauce here.

    5. If you scoff at oatmeal cookies, make vegan cashew cheesecake instead.

    This is the brilliant Vine user Lucie Béluga's full recipe:

    1) Mix speculoos biscuits with coco oil and scoop this crust inside flexible muffin tins (2 biscuits per tin).

    2) Mix 1½ cup soaked cashews with ¼ cup lime juice, ½ cup coco cream, 3 tablespoons coco oil, and agave/rice syrup to taste,

    3) Pour over biscuit base, freeze for three hours, and serve with fruit coulis.

    6. Bok choy, pork belly, and oyster sauce make a simple, delicious dinner.

    Fry up the pork belly, wilt the bok choy into your pan, add oyster sauce, and mix it all together.

    7. Or make a massive roast chicken feast.

    8. Did you know you can make burgers with falafel instead of a bun?

    Mix your falafels with soy milk and hummus to make them more pliable, then use them to hold together all your favourite burger fillings.

    9. Roasting rhubarb is simple and delicious.

    Just mix chopped rhubarb and sugar in a shallow dish and cook at 200°C/392°F for 15 minutes. Then stir it up a bit and cook for another five minutes.

    10. Or, if you despise rhubarb, make gooey pecan brownies instead.

    This is a Michel Roux recipe, which you can find here.

    11. Or Greek lemon cookies.

    This Easter treat uses a batter of butter, sugar, shortening, eggs, and lemon zest and juice, added to the usual flour, baking soda, and baking powder. Twist into the shape shown above, and bake for 15 minutes.

    12. Here's everything you need for an arrabiata sauce.

    If you didn't catch that, this recipe calls for: olive oil, chopped onion, finely chopped garlic, red wine, caster sugar, fresh basil, crushed chillies, tomato puree, lemon juice, Italian herb seasoning, ground black pepper, tinned chopped tomatoes and fresh chopped parsley.

    13. A quinoa salad can make an extra healthy meal.

    Quinoa is cooked in a similar way to rice: by boiling and simmering for about 15 minutes, using two cups of water for each cup of the grain. Add tomato, finely chopped onion, spring onion/green onion, avocado, salt, coriander (cilantro), and spices to make the above salad.

    14. You can also use quinoa for desserts such as this peach and cherry quinoa crumble.

    This crumble is gluten-free and uses almond flour and quinoa to top the fruit. You can find a full recipe here.

    15. This stew calls for "freshly shot" pheasant.

    But here's another version that doesn't require you to kill the bird yourself.

    16. Cheese and Marmite twists are a fun snack for those who don't hate Marmite.

    Spread Marmite and grated cheddar cheese on to puff pastry, fold, cult, twist, and bake.

    17. Learn to make your own dumplings for soup.

    As this Vine chef tells us: Take 3 cups of flour and 4 eggs and mix them together, adding water until it’s sticky, then boil the mixture in water for 20 minutes.

    18. You can even make your own pad thai.

    19. Did you know you can make pizza crust out of cauliflower?

    Cauliflower pizza crust is gluten-free and low on carbs. Find more instructions for how to make it here.

    20. Wash it all down with some homemade mulled wine.

    Winter is coming. Let Jamie Oliver show you how to warm up with mulled wine here.

    21. Or make a refreshing blueberry and mint lemonade.

    Blend blueberries, fresh lemon juice, mint, and sugar. Strain the mixture, add water, and enjoy.

    22. And finally, a cute baking idea: teddy-bear cookies hugging almonds.
