Vegetable Goulash

One-pot casserole dishes are one of my favourite things to cook on a busy weeknight. They are easy to make, don't use too many bits of kitchen equipment and are lovely and warming for chilly January nights. If you know me well, you may have noticed I have included MUSHROOMS in this recipe, which is … Continue reading Vegetable Goulash

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

Pumpkin, Coconut and Ginger Soup

Pumpkin always makes the silkiest soups and is a great autumnal ingredient, however if you can't find pumpkin then any other kind of squash also works well here. I really enjoyed making this soup as it's really easy as well as making ordinary winter veg a little more interesting by incorporating Thai flavours. Ingredients (Serves … Continue reading Pumpkin, Coconut and Ginger Soup

Chickpea, Coconut and Almond Curry

It's been quite some time again since I've posted any recipes, but I've been trying to get back into the swing of things with the new academic year, despite it being very busy so far.  I recently ate at the Trading Post Railway Carriage in Lopen (complete with new double decker bus seating area!)  whilst … Continue reading Chickpea, Coconut and Almond 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've … Continue reading Chilli Mint Smashed New Potatoes

Hummus: Three Ways

I love hummus, it's so versatile and you can have it for every meal (I probably do this more often that I should...).  Hummus also makes a great snack with crudites, pittas or even on toast.  I've put together three alternatives to the traditional chickpea hummus that I love and that are vegetarian, vegan and … Continue reading Hummus: Three Ways

Simple Lentil Bolognese

I've been really enjoying cooking my lentil bolognese this week, bolognese sauce in general reminds me of home and has become a much needed comfort food for me recently.  Lentils also have a really meaty texture and take on plenty of flavour when cooked, making them the perfect candidate for a bolognese in place of … Continue reading Simple Lentil Bolognese

Food Guide: Glastonbury 2016

Anyone who is lucky enough to go to Glastonbury Festival knows that the huge variety of eclectic food stalls are second only to the festival's musical offerings.  Once again I was one of the lucky few hundred thousand able to sample some of the amazing festival food as well as some incredible acts (almost mere … Continue reading Food Guide: Glastonbury 2016

Roasted Summer Veg with Herby Pesto Dressing

I haven't posted a recipe in a really long time so I was really looking forward to making something new and summery to kick start my blog again.  As my studying is winding down, I've been in a bit of a cooking rut, unsure of what to buy, where to start and what to cook.  … Continue reading Roasted Summer Veg with Herby Pesto Dressing
