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…

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…

Creamy Carrot & Ginger Soup

It’s finally the season for soup once again; the days of putting stuff in a pot, leaving it for half an hour, then blitzing it and calling it a meal are upon us. Superb. That’s exactly the level of effort I want to make in the dead of winter. Less, if at all possible. This recipe…

Roasted Balsamic Tomato & Basil Risotto

I’ve been really off-track with my eating recently, although I can’t be mad about that given the fantastic bank holiday weekend I just enjoyed. Spa day with my best gals, a copious number of Life-Changing Tacos, and more wine than any of us would really care to admit to having consumed, for fear of tarnishing…

Life-Changing Cauliflower Tacos

As I type this the roof of my mouth is burning due to the excess amount of chipotle mayo I put on my tacos, but holy mother of vegetables do I not regret one single bite of that meal. Isla and I didn’t even sit down. I was going to insert a delightful picture of…

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…

Birthday Blog (& French-Style Lentils with Halloumi)

HELLO IT IS MY BIRTHDAY. Yes, I have successfully aged an entire year in the space of a day; yesterday I was a year younger, and Science will attest to this. Streamers, balloons and party poppers are all welcome in my home for this ONE DAY, so use that knowledge wisely. Please use the front…

Smoky Fish & Lentil Winter Stew

Tonight I was going to make soup, but then I had one of those moments when you realise your entire brain has melted out of your ears (completely ruining your upholstery) and you’d planned something else for dinner only the night before. And you’d taken something out of the freezer. You’re trapped. You must eat the…

Veggie Brunch Hash

Who doesn’t like brunch? It’s an amalgamation of breakfast (which holds all the cards as far as food options go) and lunch, and you can eat it whenever the hell you like. Have it at 7pm, if you want! I’m not your mum. Just look at this bad boy: Sexy. I’m sure brunch is supposed…
