Egg Mayo Sandwich

Homemade Egg Mayo Sandwich

2nd February 2019

I’ve never been a huge egg mayo fan. It would never have been my choice of sandwich. However, a colleague had a homemade egg sandwich for lunch last week, and it looked delicious. I’d never thought about making egg mayonnaise myself before. So the following weekend, I bought half a dozen free range eggs, Hellman’s […]

It might look like a long list of ingredients but this tasty sweet potato, chickpea and lentil curry is super easy to make! Whilst spices can be expensive, they’re a fantastic investment. If you’re into cooking already, or are enthusiastic to start broadening your recipes, you will need spices… And they most definitely won’t sit in […]

Leek and pea risotto

Leek & Pea Risotto

4th September 2018

A risotto isn’t something I often make, largely due to the fact that I’ve always thought it takes forever to make, painstakingly stirring for hours on end. However, I was surprised and thrilled to find this quick and simple leek and pea risotto recipe on HelloFresh. From start to finish, this risotto was made in 30 […]

Mushroom, Olive & Sundried Tomato Lasagne

31st July 2018

Although I’ve previously posted a vegetarian lasagne recipe, I couldn’t resist sharing this one, as it’s very different to the first, but equally as delicious. I first found inspiration for this recipe because we had two tubs of mushrooms that desperately needed using up, so I first searched for a mushrooms lasagne recipe, and then […]

Huevos Rancheros

5th June 2018

I don’t mean to brag, but how GOOD to do these tortillas look? Oh my! I absolutely love Mexican food, and we make black bean frijoles all the time, but how have we never made Huevos Rancheros before, I don’t know! Every element on the plate is delicious – spicy salsa, garlic black beans, fresh […]

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 […]

Held at The Paintworks, Jay McGuiness (of The Wanted) also attended, sharing with us some of his favourite veggie meals. Named ‘Linda’s Veggie Table’, the event took place in both Bristol and […]

Pesto Orzo Salad

Pesto & Sun-dried Tomato Orzo Salad

3rd April 2018

I absolutely love pesto, so much so that I have at it at least once a week. Whether it’s on a pizza, spread over a piece of sourdough, or mixed into pasta. Shamefully, I’ve never actually tried to make pesto myself, but when it’s so reasonable to buy (perhaps even cheaper than making it yourself?), […]
