Pumpkin seed pesto

Have you carved a pumpkin for Halloween? Did you toss away the seeds? I hope not, those babies are delicious roasted and hulled. They’re also a delicious (and cheaper) alternative to pine nuts in pesto. Pesto isn’t just for pasta… Continue Reading →

Banging Green Beans

I think there’s a tendency, when you’re cooking for people who don’t eat meat, to feel like you have to ‘replace’ that element of a meal. I don’t agree, obviously I don’t want to lose the protein from my diet… Continue Reading →

Baked feta

Slutty super food bake

I find that with all this January healthy eating lark it’s a lot easier to take things steadily, rather than going cold turkey after all that, well, turkey. Yes, we’re all in need of a little more nourishment and a… Continue Reading →

Curried pumpkin soup

This is the perfect way to warm up and refuel after a Boxing Day walk, and I’m sure that today we’re all in need of something a little bit lighter after all the indulgences of Christmas day. I’m pretty certain… Continue Reading →

Warm winter salad

I really do love my veggies but when the chilly weather arrives I’m less keen on the idea of tucking into a fridge-cold refreshing salad. I always want something that feels a bit more hearty and nourishing. This vegetarian delight… Continue Reading →
