Crispy Lentil “Meatball” Flatbreads with Curry Mayo

You know what I love? Tinned lentils. I also love dried lentils – in fact, I have yet to meet a lentil I don’t like. Lentils, man! They’re high in protein, tasty, filling, cheap, versatile… It’s love, and I’m not ashamed. I wasn’t actually sure how this recipe was going to turn out, but I…

Spiced Vegetable, Cashew & Goats’ Cheese Strudel

In order to write this, I levered myself up out of the nest I’d made in the corner of the sofa, set out the necessary writing tools on the dining room table, and put on my largest, fluffiest dressing gown. The cat is sitting on the chair next to me – I’m sure he’ll be…

Quick Fixes: Curry, Lasagne & Biryani

Alternative title: Stop Spending Money, You Ignoramus In the last couple of weeks we’ve bought a new car (a necessity – damn you, failed modern electronics) and been on holiday to a place known primarily for its cheese (not a necessity, but a damn good time). I am famously weak to dairy products, accompanying chutneys, and…

Quick Vegan Thai Green Curry

Is this a recipe for cheat-y cheaters who like to cheat hecka big time when it comes to making curry? Yes – absolutely. Is this a recipe for vegans, coeliacs, and 5-a-day seekers alike? My buddies, it totally is. I would never claim this was authentic – mainly because I’ve never been to Thailand – but it…

Butternut Squash & Cauliflower Curry

I’m going to do some free plugging again – Patak’s, you are very welcome. As always, nobody is insane enough to pay me to do this, especially not a brand owned by ABF* – even though they probably have the money. Should they wish to throw some cash my way, however, I’m sure I could…

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…

Coronation Chickpea Naan Pizza

It’s okay, you can say it; I’m a terrible person. I’ve been off gallivanting* and have subsequently completely neglected to post any recipes, in spite of the fact that several new ones have left my kitchen in the last month. I have taken very few photos, and mostly eaten stuff without thinking about what went into…

Aubergine Katsu Curry with Turmeric Rice

Something that everyone seems to be completely obsessed with at the moment, regardless of whether or not they have any other intersecting interests, is Katsu curry. I am not immune to its charms, even though I’m more likely to associate curry with Indian food rather than Japanese cuisine. Additionally, I generally find that (since money…

Roasted Chickpea & Basa Curry

My favourite thing about the fish ‘basa’ is that autocorrect, my mum, the postman, and almost every other resident of the United Kingdom believes that I mean ‘bass’. I do not. I mean basa. It’s a kind of catfish, it’s absolutely awesome smoked, and it’s generally much cheaper than cod or haddock; it’s become more popular…
