This is one of my absolute favourite go to recipes for a delicious supper that requires very little preparation. It's full of flavour and goes perfectly as a side dish to compliment a simple cheeseboard and a couple of hunks of homemade or good quality bread. You could also use it as a side to … Continue reading Baked Tomatoes with Sage
I'm always disappointed when the one vegetarian option on a menu is a mediocre bean/mushroom/awful meat substitute vegetarian or vegan burger. I always come away wishing I'd just ordered a bowl of sweet potato fries instead. I don't think I've had a good one yet. However, my husband loves a good burger (the regular carnivore … Continue reading Black Bean Burger
Super quick, really easy and extra tasty. Everything you want in a dish for busy days, late nights or lazy evenings. It's so quick and easy, even those who 'can't cook' can make this.

Perfect lunch for a rainy Saturday afternoon or a … Continue reading Posh Cheese Toastie – Croque Rarebit or Welsh Monsieur?
You can thank my husband for this one. I always pester him to give me new ideas of things he'd like for dinner and this is the latest. Until I started researching, I had no idea vindaloo is originally a variation of a Portugese dish (carne de vinha d'alos meaning meat marinated in wine vinegar … Continue reading Vegetable Vindaloo
