Banging Green Beans

Banging Green Beans

I think there’s a tendency, when you’re cooking for people who don’t eat meat, to feel like you have to ‘replace’ that element of a meal. I don’t agree, obviously I don’t want to lose the protein from my diet but there are plenty of […]

Heirloom tomato and fennel tart

Heirloom tomato and fennel tart

When you get really good ingredients it’s worth using them in a recipe that really shows off their full potential. That’s how I feel about these beautiful heirloom tomatoes anyway. So often the fruits you find in supermarkets are insipid and disappointing but if you […]

Baked feta

Baked feta

I’ve got a bone to pick with you guys. Why did none of you tell me how delicious baked feta is? I mean regular feta is pretty good but baked feta is a whole other thing! It’s so soft, but not actually melted, with a […]

Beetroot & cannellini bean dip

Beetroot & cannellini bean dip

I love hummus as much as the next person but summer barbecues when you don’t eat meat can get a bit hummus heavy so it’s nice to have a bit of a change every now and then. This recipe is ludicrously good for you! It’s […]

Beetroot and halloumi rosti

Beetroot and halloumi rosti

I’ve taken the delicious salad that Rach from our little community shared on here last summer as the flavour inspiration for these. I bloomin’ love beetroot and dill, alone or together, they put me in veggie heaven. These little vegetable patties are so delicious, crisp […]

Spinach and paneer filo pie

Spinach and paneer filo pie

I love most Indian food but I think that my absolute favourite dish is a paneer dosa. I love the crisp, delicate crepe and contrasting soft, fluffy spiced potato filling. I am not, however, any good at making them. The filling isn’t a problem, it’s […]

Butternut squash and feta frittata

Butternut squash and feta frittata

This tasty little vegetarian number makes a fairly regular appearance on our week night dinner menus. It’s a really quick and easy one pan wonder. It’s not limited to dinner time either, this is a great dish for brunch or lunch too. And it’s not […]

Labneh

Labneh

Labneh is a Middle Eastern cream cheese made from strained yoghurt. It’s a little softer and slightly less sticky than standard cream cheese and has a delicious fresh tart flavour. It’s also incredibly easy to make and only requires a couple of ingredients. I like […]

Slutty super food bake

Slutty super food bake

I find that with all this January healthy eating lark it’s a lot easier to take things steadily, rather than going cold turkey after all that, well, turkey. Yes, we’re all in need of a little more nourishment and a little less indulgence but it’s […]

Date and tamarind ketchup

Date and tamarind ketchup

I bet you’ve still got a few remnants of festive food hanging around, I know I have, January’s healthy intentions may have to wait a few more days! At least I’ve got a way of using up those Christmas dates. I quite like dried fruit […]
