Asian Jackfruit Lettuce Wraps

Jumping on the jackfruit train with wild abandon here guys – but I have absolutely no regrets. It’s so good. It’s got a great texture, it holds sauce like a champ, and it’s one of your five-a-day. It is, admittedly, freaky as heck opening a tin of supposed fruit and being faced with something pink, chunky,…

Sweet Chilli Mackerel Fishcakes with Soy & Garlic Pak Choi

I like a good, long title. I did have a short nap after writing that, but I’m confident that most of this post is actually finished now – that was definitely the hard bit. As you are probably aware by now, I am deeply and passionately in love with Wagamama. I haven’t had a single…

Chicken Singapore Noodles

What’s a girl to do when her pescatarian wife is off doing Serious Business with work of an evening? I’m here to tell you that a girl is to cook up some chicken and noodles, give the cat a lot of affection, and watch Food Network trash in a vain attempt at appearing totally chill about…

Cheat-y Black Bean Chilli

*Chanting* ONE POT, ONE POT, ONE POT  I am, as has been established by now, a huge fan of one-pot cooking. I hate washing up, I hate thinking about washing up, and I hate the feeling of uselessness I get when I allow Isla to do the washing up (again). I usually just stand nearby with…
