5-Minute Vermicelli Noodle Soup

A “recipe” for when you have a few minutes, a kettle, and a hankering for a meal that will make every possible attempt to escape the bowl and splatter the front of your shirt with its delicious broth. Do not eat this if you are wearing a white shirt – unless you have a bib….

Cauliflower Fishcakes

Cauliflower – the best vegetable? It’s a very real possibility. I’ll eat it pretty much any way it comes, including roasted, boiled, pureed, and smothered in cheese sauce. I mean, that last one isn’t particular to cauliflower; I’ll eat anything smothered in cheese sauce. Even kidney beans, probably*. The only thing I’m not really sold…

Lentil Shakshuka with Goat Cheese

Shakshuka (or shakshouka, or chakchouka or…) is a Mediterranean dish of eggs cooked in a spiced tomato sauce, sometimes served with feta – or other salty cheeses – crumbled over the top. Is it breakfast? Is it lunch? IS IT BRUNCH? Who’s to say. My favourite foods straddle that invisible line between morning and evening…

Keto Burrito

I literally only started this post because I find the title overwhelmingly satisfying to say. Keto Burrito. Nice. Recently I’ve been a bit lacklustre in my attempts to lose weight, maintain weight, tone up, treat my body right, eat anything not deep-fried and smothered in chocolate… and so on. I have been enjoying a life of fruit…

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…

Kimchi Fried Rice

This is me, jumping enthusiastically on the bandwagon, arms flailing like a rabid octopus* as I ride towards victory. I’ve been doing fried rice at home for a few years now, and I have a recent (and passionate) love affair with kimchi, thanks to my equally recent and passionate love affair with Wagamama — so,…

Beetroot & Lentil Chimichurri Burgers with Slaw

Veggie burgers are basically my arch nemesis. They’re the Joker to my Batman (without the weird sexual tension and well-moulded plastic abs); the Blofeld to my Bond (also without the sexual tension); the Lex Luthor to my Superman (I don’t remember any sexual tension but I’ve been wrong before*). Basically I just can’t make them….

Crustless Cheese & Spinach Flan

This is a take on an absolute staple of my childhood. I’ve lost count of the number of times I’ve eaten this, since it’s stupidly easy to make; even when I was eating pastry willy-nilly the ready rolled stuff regularly made an appearance. But what really makes this delicious is the fact that it’s completely…
