Butternut Squash & Lentil Dahl

Butternut Squash & Lentil Dahl

12th August 2019

We originally made this recipe after receiving one similar in a Gousto box. We had signed up to their subscription service to try new recipes, as we’d found we were often making the same dishes each week. We were lacking culinary inspiration! We have our beloved go-to curry recipe, that we make large batches of […]

Veggie meatballs

Spinach & Pine Nut Veggie Meatballs

22nd May 2018

I was given the recipe for these spinach and pine nut veggie meatballs, at a Linda McCartney event I attended recently – Linda’s Veggie Table. Using Linda McCartney’s vegetarian sausages, these tasty meatballs are super easy to make, and surprisingly taste a lot like meat! The texture is almost identical to authentic meatballs, which is […]

Red Pesto Tagliatelle

24th October 2017

Slightly cheating with this week’s recipe… I didn’t make my own red pesto, I bought a jar from our local grocer! But when you’re in need of a quick and healthy lunch, and you’re only make enough for one, I’m going to let myself off! This super bright and colour tagliatelle can be made in […]

I’m back this week with another vegan recipe. I found this particular vegan dish through the review I did of Mindful Chef a few weeks ago. I always love finding new and exciting recipes, and this one didn’t fail to impress. Not only is it packed full of healthy ingredients, it’s full of flavour with […]

Roast Cauliflower Tagine

29th March 2016

Stew and I attempted our very first tagine last week. We found a recipe on Good Housekeeping for a roast cauliflower tagine and made a couple of adjustments to make it our own. Essentially it was fairly easy to make, but it did take a little while. This was mainly down to the fact we […]

Carrot & Miso Soup

8th March 2016

There is nothing more simple than making a soup. I grew up thinking Heinz tins of soup were the only option, until I moved out and my friend introduced me to a hand blender! This simple gadget is a lifesaver in the kitchen. I now regularly make my own houmous, smoothies, juices and soups. I […]
