Turkey Mince and Mushroom Stuffed Baked Courgettes

I’ve been really lucky with my courgette crop this year. I have made courgette crisps and also had them on the bbq. Both were delicious. Yesterday I made these stuffed courgettes and they were delicious. I didn’t realise you could scoop the middle out like a squash and it tasted delicious. It reminded me of…

Spring Onion Pancakes with a Soy and Sesame Dipping Sauce

This is such a great way of using up spring onions, it’s quick easy and really tasty. I like my spring onions softened so rather than added them to the dough after you’ve made it I add it straight away. It’s traditional used using the green parts but I like it with the white parts…

Caesar Style Leftover Chicken Salad

So we had roast chicken last night and there was quite a lot of meat left I filled up poppy the puppy’s bowl and still had quite a bit so decided to make a chicken salad. I didn’t have any Parmesan so I used cheddar cheese instead. I always use the the Carcass as a…

Baked Sweet Potato with Avocado Smash and Cheese Topping

Black Bean Salsa with Ham and Parmesan Corn on the Cob

I love Mexican bean salads, it’s a good way to use up spring onion tops and any herbs you have. I have tried to just grill corn on cob but it’s never tender enough so I use chef mic to tenderise them first. I recently watched a food myth programme and they tested steaming veg,…

Summer Squash and Lentil One Pot Curry

I love dished that you can just throw everything in a pot and it looks after itself. The base recipe I used for this was lightly spiced so I cranked it up to our taste and added in garam masala. Summer squashes are a lot more softer so easy to work with. I bulked it…

Teriyaki Tempeh on an Asian Salad with Miso Aubergine

I thought this was mine and P’s first time trying tempeh but he reminded me we had it Bali. I remembered it straight away, we had hired a car and we were exploring the island. It was lunchtime so we looked out for a restaurant. Nestled amongst the rice paddy fields was a restaurant that…
