Tandoori Aubergine with Tomato & Coriander Rice

    I originally found this recipe on the Hello Fresh website but as it isn’t there any more I’m going to share it with a you as it was just too darned tasty to keep to myself. It was ridiculously filling – in fact we couldn’t eat the whole lot and ended up keeping…


Roasted Vegetable & Cannellini Bean Burgers

    These tasty burgers are one of my Waste Not Want Not meals, designed to use up all the odds and ends of vegetables kicking around in the fridge. They were quick and easy to make and held together well when cooked, although they’re not substantial enough to sit on a BBQ grill, so…


Cauliflower Crust Pizza

Pizza is a wonderful thing but sometimes there’s just a little bit too much bread in one for me and I end up leaving half the crusts. Not so with this little beauty, as the crust is made from the humble cauliflower making the whole thing a vegetarian delight.  It makes a very substantial meal…


Easy panini dough

Prawn & Quinoa Summer Rolls

    Essentially these are uncooked spring rolls, made with rice wraps and eaten cold. The idea being that they’re like a conventional wrap for lunch but the nutritional value of the filling isn’t compromised by a whole load of carbohydrates in the floury tortilla wrap surrounding it. They can be eaten hot by steaming…

Cauliflower Rice

  Who’d have thought the humble cauliflower would become so en vogue but yup, there it is, right up there with quinoa and chia seeds, only this time it’s cunningly disguised as rice. And I have to say – not actually being a cauliflower kind of person myself – its absolutely delicious. You can steam,…


Sun-dried Tomato & Mozzarella Rolls

        Yesterday saw me having a bit of an experimental day in the kitchen and these delightful little rolls were the result. They’re not difficult to make, freeze well and are absolutely beautiful with an antipasti platter or with a ploughman’s lunch. They’d also be gorgeous served warm with a nice big…
