Chicken, Leek, Pea and Spinach Filo Pie

I have wanted to try a filo pie for ages as I recently came back from Greece and ate lots of spinach and feta spanakopita. I wanted to put a British spin on it so settled for chicken, peas, leeks and bacon with a nod to Greece, spinach. This was so comforting the filo pastry…

Chickpeas, Couscous and Spinach

Meatless Monday today. As we are more informed these days about meat I try to have at least one vegetarian and fish meal a week (doesn’t always happen) but I’ve managed it today.

Lemon Sole on Polenta with a Warm Sweetcorn Salsa

It’s corn as the song goes. I totally agree it’s juicy and sweet. I had a love hate relationship with polenta and stayed away from it for awhile but decided to try it again thanks to A well known yellow and blue supermarket that has themed country weeks. Yes I like it again and realise…
