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…

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…

Sticky Tofu with Spring Onions & Cashews

It’s been too long since I’ve had tofu, and I need some of that weird, sponge-y goodness in my life again. I’m also trying to pack out my meals with really lean protein so that I stop wanting to eat an entire sharing bag of Kettle Chips after dinner while sobbing. What do they put in those…

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 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…

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,…

Breakfast Round-up

Whether or not you agree that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, you can’t deny that it is varied, wondrous, and often slightly bizarre. While I prefer brunch, the potential of the humble brekkie cannot be denied; so here are a few of my favourite breakfasts, varying from 2-minute simplicity to… well,…

Teriyaki Tofu Donburi

Let’s get this out of the way first: I have stretched my birthday out for as long as possible, culminating in the following photo being taken this weekend: I just think it’s important for you to see this image, so that we can balance out how new-age and wholesome this recipe seems at first glance….

Goats’ Cheese & Thyme Risotto with Honey-Roasted Parsnips

Now that is a lengthy title. Yikes. I might need a nap.* I’m absolutely determined it’s Spring now, by the way; soon I’ll be donning my denim shorts and exposing my paper-white legs to the world, blinding passers-by and causing pedestrians to fall into nearby bodies of water. In light of the change in seasons (heralded by…
