The goats cheese is optional for those who don’t like it.   Ingredients 2 autumn squash (not butternut) – approximately grapefruit size Rapeseed oil 500g washed spinach 1 tbsp butter whole…


Spinach and Ricotta Cannelloni

  Who doesn’t like pasta? And when it’s got a melting spinach and ricotta filling and a chunky tomato sauce on top AND it’s easy to make it seems even more lovely. The recipe can easily be altered but i find  it easiest to make a batch and freeze any leftovers for another day. The…


Vegetable Cottage Pie

  This cottage pie was a bit of a medley of all the leftover vegetables in the fridge after Christmas, and was surprisingly savoury, considering its a completely vegetarian meal.

Gnocchi with Mediterranean Roasted Vegetables & Mushrooms

  This was a bit of a Waste Not Want Not recipe for me – a Tuesday evening and a fridge full of leftovers from the weekend. What to do with a cold baked potato, some roasted veg and half a punnet of mushrooms? Gnocchi is the answer. Gorgeous little Italian dumplings flavoured with thyme…


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…

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…
