Recipe Review: Delicious Magazine’s Broccoli and Almond Salad

I recently made this dish for a celebratory dinner with my housemates, and it went down very well indeed. Far from boring old boiled broccoli, this salad screams ‘eat me’ with it’s garlic oil coated chopped almonds and heat from fresh strips of red and green chillies. This recipe is from the July 2017 editionContinue reading “Recipe Review: Delicious Magazine’s Broccoli and Almond Salad”

Spring Favourites

Spring is here and in full swing! I’ve certainly enjoyed the warmer weather and I’m looking forward to cooking with some tasty summery fruit and veg in a couple of months time. In the mean tie, here are some of my favourite spring/summer recipes to eat alongside usual, more wintery meals to add a littleContinue reading “Spring Favourites”

Creamy Vegetable Curry

It’s January, usually a time for stringent dieting and new routines involving resolutions, green juice and a silly amount of kale.  Hopefully this recipe will be less miserably healthy and more delicious! There’s still loads of veg involved, but it’s nice and hearty and warming, not too spicy with a silky yoghurt and coconut sauce.Continue reading “Creamy Vegetable Curry”

Chilli Mint Smashed New Potatoes

I really love this quick potato recipe, potatoes can be dull if just plainly boiled so I think the addition of chilli and fresh herbs in this recipe is a great idea.  This is also a good way to use up any leftover soft herbs and chillis you have knocking about in your fridge.  I’veContinue reading “Chilli Mint Smashed New Potatoes”

Curried Winter Veg with Feta

It’s the perfect season at the moment for winter veg like squash, swede and parsnip.  One of my favourite ways to have these tasty veg is curried in a salad or, once roasted, whizzed up into a chunky soup with yoghurt and bread. The robust curry flavours work so well against mild flavoured root veg,Continue reading “Curried Winter Veg with Feta”

Energising Breakfast Ideas

For some people, breakfast can be just another morning chore.  There is nothing more deflating than a bland bowl of cereal in the morning so, for me, the key is to make breakfast something you’ll actually look forward to eating.  Personally I can’t function properly (especially when I’m in classes) when I havn’t at leastContinue reading “Energising Breakfast Ideas”

Food Spot: Grain Store

This was a real treat for me, having just finished my exams I wanted to celebrate so decided to pay a trip to the highly praised Grain Store for some lunch. Grain Store lies a rather uninspiring five minute walk fro King’s Cross Station in Granary Square close to industrial looking UAL buildings. The restaurantContinue reading “Food Spot: Grain Store”

Weekday Meal: Chilli Bowl with Chunky Sweet Potato and Avocado

  This dish is really easy to make, and although it’s not as quick as some of my others it’s worth the extra cooking time to get the beans tender and the potatoes nice and fluffy. The chilli is also unbelievably good for you, and it doesn’t even look like rabbit food! You have tomatoes,Continue reading “Weekday Meal: Chilli Bowl with Chunky Sweet Potato and Avocado”

Spicy Carrot and Red Lentil Soup

Making soup is a great way to use up any extra vegetables (the carrots are from the tagine I made in my last post) as well as delicious and cheap. It’s been freezing cold recently so I’ve been itching to make a good, hearty soup to look forward to after lectures! I’ve made this oneContinue reading “Spicy Carrot and Red Lentil Soup”

Really easy noodles

Sometimes, that noodle craving just hits and you need something easy and quick to satisfy your hunger. This recipe uses dry noodle nests instead of fresh, which although means using more than one pan, is cheaper than the fresh packets you can buy and they last longer too! I also really love topping my noodlesContinue reading “Really easy noodles”
