Vegan Courgetti Pad Thai

As regular readers of this blog will know, I am an avid lover of vegetables, and always have been. I was the strange child that asked for a second helping of brussel sprouts at Sunday dinner. There’s a huge movement towards veganism and plant based eating in today’s society and whilst I can’t see myself…

Black Bean & Roasted Veg Quesadillas

Quesadillas are one of my all time favourite things to make for a casual snacky dinner on a hot day. They’re so tasty, quick to make and I kind of like the laid back eating with your hands vibe. Enjoy them out in the garden on a hot summer’s evening. I also think they’re a…

Mushroom & Lentil Lasagne

Throughout my years as a blogger, my most constant and best source of inspiration has been other bloggers. As much as I love my cookbooks, my food magazines and my Saturday morning cooking shows, I love to see what other people are making in their own homes as part of their own busy, real lives….

Vegetarian January

Spurred on by the over-indulgence of Christmas, and a desire to generally be a better person in January, I felt a little bit of a detox was in order. Veganuary is all the rage this year and I can’t log into social media without seeing or reading something about it. However, I’ve never been that…

Aubergine, Sweet Potato & Butternut Bake

This January I decided to go vegetarian. This is not a permanent change for me, more a personal challenge, to see if I could stick to it and a chance to give my body a break after the incessant indulgence of the Christmas period. For the first week or two I was really enjoying it,…

Puy Lentil, Cauliflower & Halloumi Salad

Lately I’ve been trying to cut back on the amount of meat I eat. I’ve always toyed with the idea of going fully vegeterian because I love vegetables in all their glorious forms but, to be honest, my heart’s not in it. Human’s didn’t evolve as herbivores, we evolved as omnivores, and unless there’s a…

​ Mixed Potato Spanish Tortilla

​For many many years a proper Spanish tortilla has been one of my absolute favourite dishes. It’s the dish that got me to like eggs. In my early years I really vehemently hated eggs, even now I only like them in scrambled or omelette form, I can’t eat the whites and the yolks separately (I…

Gluten Free Earl Grey Fruit Loaf

Recently my household has become gluten-free. The Boyfriend, who actually needs to go gluten-free, is finding this all rather depressing as the entire bread aisle and biscuit and cake aisle in Sainsbury’s are now off limits to him. I however am seeing it all as an opportunity to get experimenting. I’m definitely more of a…
