Super-Quick Hummus Pasta

Super-Quick Hummus Pasta

A really quick full flavoured pasta dish based on the middle eastern dip Hummus. We decided to save money a while back by not buying food for weekend lunches. It’s so easy to just grab a pasty or sandwich in town or on the way […]

Vegetable Masala made with Frozen Vegetables

Vegetable Masala made with Frozen Vegetables

A super easy Indian masala style vegetable side dish made with frozen vegetables. I often have a small handicap when I’m trying to cook dinner – the sort that is small, blonde and usually sticky. My son is delightful, but at the moment when I’m […]

Easy Curried Cauliflower and Lentil Soup

Easy Curried Cauliflower and Lentil Soup

This really easy cauliflower and lentil so up soup has no frying and no added fat, it’s quick to cook and it’s vegan. Well, if you don’t serve it with cheddar or cottage cheese like we did… This soup is comfort food at its finest. […]

Weeknight Butterbean and Mushroom Bake

Weeknight Butterbean and Mushroom Bake

  The nights are drawing in, and it’s only a couple of days until Halloween. It’s the time of year for warming soups and stews, chillis and jacket potatoes. The clocks have gone back, though, so it’s also duvet time of year, put-the-heating on time […]

Curried Carrot and Lentil Soup

Curried Carrot and Lentil Soup

This curried carrot and lentil soup is a classic – sweet carrots, warming spices, and no heavy cream. It really is the weather for soup at the moment. If you have half a packet of carrots left over soup is a great choice as it […]

Sometimes it’s not making a quick, or easy meal that’s the problem – it’ s making one that’s both easy, and interesting. It’s so tempting to rely on the same stand-bys and to always use the same flavours. To me, working out the combination of […]

Hot Autumn Main Meal Bruschetta

Hot Autumn Main Meal Bruschetta

I know bruschetta is usually a cold snack – but this reworking had all the fresh, crunchy spirit of the original.  I love seasonal food, and Autumn is my favourite time of year – the autumn festivals, the nights drawing in and the changing colours […]

Really Quick Garlic Mushroom Pasta

Really Quick Garlic Mushroom Pasta

This was wooden-spoon-lickingly good, and ready in no time at all.  Don’t get fresh herbs specially – and tinned mushrooms or frozen peas or peppers would also make a good meal. Use whatever cheese you have. Every so often, a celebrity chef claims that fresh […]

Guest Post- Cream of Roast Aubergine Soup

Guest Post- Cream of Roast Aubergine Soup

Today, I have a guest post for you continuing the Tahini series.  Thanks to Karolina from Senses in the Kitchen for sharing a scrummy-looking soup. I can’t wait to try it: This soup is not the best looking one, but very, very tasty. The basic […]

Mushrooms with Peppercorns and Basil

On Saturday I was faced with one of those evenings where I have to work out what to do with the random things left from a previous meal.  In this case, the previous meal had been Italian, so I had basil, one tomato and a […]
