Pan Fried Hake Recipe

Pan-Fried Hake on Crushed Potatoes

23rd July 2020

This is a oldie but a goodie. I come back to this recipe time and time again. The soft and fluffy, buttery potatoes. The delicious pan fried white fish. The fresh and zesty salsa. It’s a winning combination. But don’t just take my word for it. Recreate it for yourself and let me know what […]

Vegetable Ragu with Butter Bean Mash Recipe

Vegan Tomato Ragu & Butter Bean Mash

22nd July 2020

I first found this recipe in a Mindful Chef box. Butter bean mash wasn’t something I’d made previously, but it’s a great alternative to regular potato mash. Much healthier too. Butter beans naturally create a creamy texture when mashed down, so there’s no need to add butter or milk. Served alongside a vegetabl tomato ragu, […]

Black Bean & Charred Pineapple Wraps

20th July 2020

We made this delicious dish at the weekend for lunch, but it would equally make a great dinner option. Instead of using a more common red kidney bean and meat combo, we’ve used black beans and added a touch of sweetness with grilled pineapple. The mix of ingredients and strong flavours, work perfectly together. If […]

10th July 2020

I normally find thinking of a dish for dinner quite stressful, especially when we have very little food in the house. However, sometimes I really enjoy it, particularly if we have a couple of ingredients left over in the fridge that need eating. In this case it was a couple of courgettes. We hadn’t used […]

29th December 2019

If you’ve followed my blog for a while, you’ll know there’s nothing I like more than whipping up a curry for dinner. Whilst we’ve made many variations over the years (you can find them all here), we haven’t made too many dahls before. And yet we always love to order a dahl when eating out. […]

Pea & Spinach Risotto

10th November 2019

I made this recipe a little while ago, and it was such a hit on Instagram with my followers, and it tasted so good in person, that I’ve since made it again. I originally found a similar recipe whilst browsing Pinterest. Which tends to be where I get most of my recipe inspiration from these […]
