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 […]

Vegan Sri Lankan Curry

12th September 2017

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 […]

Mushroom Soup

22nd December 2015

There’s nothing better than a big bowl of warming, hearty soup, on a cold winter’s day. It seems to be one of our go-to meals just recently. It’s also great to make in large batches, and have leftovers for lunch at work for the week. Having already made and featured a spiced root vegetable soup, […]

Chana Masala

14th July 2015

By now, I’m sure you all know how much I adore Indian curries. They have to be my favourite dish. In fact, Indian food in general is my favourite cuisine, with Japanese coming a close second. Each time we make our beloved vegan curry – using the same recipe – we add a different vegetable, […]
