Spinach & Red Lentil Chilli, Guac & Coriander Cashew Cream with Baked Sweet Potato

This is a feel good supper.  It’s filling and hearty without being bloaty and guilty!  I’ve been reading a brilliant book recently called ‘Gut’ by Giulia Enders, its really accessible for unsciency types like me, and really insightful when it comes to understanding how we digest food, how long it takes and what a powerful,Continue reading “Spinach & Red Lentil Chilli, Guac & Coriander Cashew Cream with Baked Sweet Potato”

Chicken Pasanda With Cauliflower, Coconut & Almond ‘Rice’

This isn’t a fad.  Don’t mistake this one for a carb-avoiding gluten-free fashion supper… Although it happens to be those things!  For me it’s an alternative, I just didn’t fancy rice, and I do love cauliflower, and it does happen to be delicious!  Have you tried my vegetarian Mushroom Pasanda recipe by the way?  ThisContinue reading “Chicken Pasanda With Cauliflower, Coconut & Almond ‘Rice’”

I love that you chose toContinue reading “An Open Letter to Brussels Sprouts & Maple Roast Sprouts with Walnuts & Beetroot”

Fridge Raider Green Curry and Rice aka c.1999 on a Thai Beach

This was a fridge raiding meal the day before the shopping arrived, so strictly speaking it’s not a ‘green curry’ proper… but for me it has enough of the elements to make it as good as!  And if you close your eyes and put on Moby’s ‘Play’ album then you’re in Thailand c.1999!

Roast Caramelised Autumn Veg Salad aka A Beetroot Affair to Remember

This is a beautifully warm, earthy salad… rich in flavour and texture.  I’ve got an abundance of gem squash at the moment thanks Jude, my allotment neighbour and still plenty of beetroot… Oh beetroot… In the words of Tom Robbins; ‘The beet is the most intense of vegetables…the murderer returned to the scene of theContinue reading “Roast Caramelised Autumn Veg Salad aka A Beetroot Affair to Remember”

Cheap as Chips with Bestival Sauce

This is a great side or snack… The kids love it and I love picking on it when they have it!
