No banter today, pals! Straight into the good stuff; the good stuff being, in this case, a super easy and tasty veggie sausage roll. This is a one-pan recipe, great for snacking and lunchboxes, easy to customise… It’s got it all. Sweet Potato, Aubergine & Feta “Sausage” Rolls (Vegetarian, Gluten-free) Makes 16 sausage rolls Preparation…

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…

Festive Fruity Feta Couscous

There are many things I love in life. Seeing greyhound puppies wearing tiny coats; those mini white chocolate Toblerone that come in massive sharing bags, and which I do not share; really hot showers where your skin is about one degree away from blistering under the spray… I could go on. But in this instance,…

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…

Halloumi Shawarma with Tzatziki

The red-squiggly-line brigade is back, and it’s targeting three out of four words in this recipe title. They would have me serve you Thallium Sharma with Kazantzakis, apparently. However, poisoning people isn’t my bag, and I doubt the still-living relatives of Nikos Kazantzakis would appreciate me serving him up in a flatbread — and so…

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,…

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…

Christmas Leftover Pasta

After the other day’s cheesy bon-bon tomfoolery (a sentence never before written by mortal hands), I felt it best to act quickly; who knows how long this burst of enthusiasm for leftovers will last? To that end, I resolved to make a pasta dish with what little remained of good old Delia’s bread sauce. I…

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…
