Middle Eastern Chickpea and Puffed Rice Salad

I love trying new ingredients when I see them on a cooking programme. Puffed rice is my new thing. I don’t know what I expected but it is just a savoury cereal puff. Its genius putting it in a salad as it adds such a nice texture and nuttiness. I love textures in salads, and…

Greek Chicken, Olives and Jersey Royals

I love Greek food and its jersey royal potato season at the moment, so I decided to combine the two together. This is a great one pot and is really healthy. All the flavours are so Greek, the olives, oregano, rosemary and olive oil. It was so tasty and the flavours worked in harmony together….

Egg, Asparagus and Rocket Salad with a Mustard Dressing

So its asparagus season, yes! I’m so lucky as I live on the border of East Sussex and Kent. I have 2 asparagus farms within 10-15 minutes. This means I will be living off asparagus for the next month. The asparagus farm I go to has different grades, so you can get wonky ones for…

Meatball and Pasta Tomato bake

So I’ve got back from travelling around Malaysia for 3 weeks and craved some comfort food. There will definitely be some malay recipes coming up though. This is just a nice easy bowl of comfort food. I didn’t make my own meatballs this time to make it nice and quick. Ingredients (serves 2) Directions

Tomato Salsa with Wild Garlic Pesto and Capers

I went foraging for wild garlic and made a big batch of pesto. So I am using it in everything at the moment this was really tasty as garlic and tomatoes go so well together. I stayed on the Mediterranean theme by adding the capers and red wine vinegar. It did need a crunch so…

Tofu and kimchi Noodle Salad with a Soy and Lime Dressing

Baked Cauliflower in a Tomato Sauce with a Feta Topping

This was my veggie dinner this week and it was delicious. I usually make cauliflower cheese but I’m going on holiday in a couple of weeks so needed something skinnier. Dishes like this make you realise that veggie dishes aren’t bland they are yummy and really flavoursome. It was nice and easy to make too…

Lemony Kale Salad with Crispy Parma Ham

I love crispy parma ham, they are like the best crisps ever I could eat a whole bag if they were. Its great as you can just pop them in the air fryer. We all know kale is good for us but im not keen just having it on its own (unless its kale crisps)….

Chicken Piccata Style with Tarragon

I love this style of cooking. Whether its schnitzel, saltimboccaand whether it uses chicken, pork or veal. I had chicken for this recipe. Its always handy having a packet of panko breadcrumbs in the cupboard. They always seem to be extra crispy. Lemon and capers work so well together and I also had some tarragon…

Moroccan Ras El Hanout Chorizo and Chickpea Salad
