Warm Christmas Salad

16th December 2015By 1 Comment

Sometimes it’s nice to mix things up a bit and whilst we still want the christmas flavours the stodge is sometimes less welcome! So why not try my Warm Christmas Salad made from baked cauliflower, brown rice, pomegranate jewels, shredded carrot and rocket and dressed in a chilli orange and agave vinaigrette. It’s a delicious side dish or light lunch…

BAKED AND JEWELLED BRUSSELS SPROUTS

15th December 2015By Leave a Comment

Sprouts have a bit of a bad reputation. When overcooked or cooked incorrectly they can be mushy and acrid; not a pleasure to eat at all. My recipe is not only simple and easy to make but turns the humble sprout into something sweet, earthy and delicious. Bake them my way, and I promise, even the fussiest of eaters will…

The best tomato soup

26th November 2015By 1 Comment

It’s that time of year, we all need a hug in a mug after those blustery cold and drizzly days and what better bowl of comfort than some home-made tomato soup. Better than the tinned stuff, you know exactly what’s gone into yours and it tastes a million times better than that oh so sugary tinned variety we know so…

As winter draws in what better dish to make on the cold evenings than an easy, one-pot, garlic lemon and thyme baked chicken. What’s fab about this dish is it creates it’s own gravy from the juices of the chicken and the wine into a creamy, lemon and garlic sauce that’s utterly delicious and incredibly moorish – I defy you…

Chilli salt Kale Chips

5th October 2015By 1 Comment

When these are so easy to make and despite being hailed as a “clean food” (which we all know I loathe) – they’re very tasty! Kale chips are virtually fat-free snack that’s also crammed with iron, anti-oxidants, fibre and cancer fighting beta-carotene. Now that’s pretty impressive for a bit of green …

‘Better for you’ Benedict with “hollandaise”

27th September 2015By Leave a Comment

This is what it’s all about. Those of you who read my brunch posts will know I’m a bit of an eggs Benedict fiend. I love hollandaise sauce, purely for the reason that it’s predominantly made entirely out of butter but let’s be realistic; it’s not very good for you and very high in calories so we shouldn’t eat it…

Lemon, chilli and garlic Prawns

3rd September 2015By Leave a Comment

I’m a lover of prawns in a fritto misto, but even though traditionally not served in a batter in favour of a dusting of flour I still don’t feel particularly confident that deep frying the critters is doing me a lot of good. So … on the theme this is how I like to eat mine. A little different from its Italian…
