If you’re looking for a centre piece for your Thanksgiving meal, or if you’re having friends round for dinner, try this delicious Plant-Based Tomato and Black Olive Tart with Fresh Basil and Pine Nuts.
I’ve served it here with roast potatoes, roast garlic, sweet carrot batons and Brussel sprouts with toasted caraway seeds.

For the carrots, take 500g/17oz carrots, washed and cut into even sized batons and put into a pot with four tbs honey and 500ml/17oz vegetable stock. Simmer for 15 minutes then increase the heat so the remaining stock evaporates. The carrots should be nice and shiny. Just before serving sprinkle two tablespoons of toasted sesame seeds over the carrots.
For the Brussels sprouts, take 500g/17oz washed and cut into half sprouts, steam them until tender, but not mushy. Toast two tablespoons of caraway seeds in a dry pot for a few minutes them add to the Brussels sprouts with the juice of a fresh lemon.
You can also roast the sprouts for 15 minutes in an oven proof roasting tin. Just put a few tablespoons of water in the tin with the sprouts, throw in some garlic cloves and two tablespoons of caraway seeds. Once cooked, squeeze the juice of a whole lemon over the sprouts and serve.
