Fast Moroccan Soup

Emergency supper! I had almost nothing in the cupboards the other day, but was delighted to scrabble together a few bits and pieces and make them into something warm, beautiful, and fulfilling. This soup is chunky and full of bite, spiced with lovely cumin, and pepped up with some lovely zingy preserved lemon. This is…

Snuggly sweet potato and peanut stew

I have to say that this is one of my new favourite autumn-winter dishes. It’s flyyyy. I tried something similar at a party, and retired to my kitchen to work on and perfect my own version. I love sweet potato in all forms, but when it’s swimming in the most rich and complex tomato sauce…

Squash soup with squashy dumplings

I love dumplings, man. I’ve featured the lil delights in my classic stew recipe, but I simply needed more excuses to eat them, so this time, they’re floating dreamily in a silky squash soup. To make things  simultaneously easier and more delicious, I chuck all of the soup veg into an oven to become roasty and…

Naughty but nice vegan tiffin

Hey everyone! Merry xmas! I just needed to quickly slip you this recipe in case you’re in need of a christmas eve treat along with hot chocolate and a cute movie by the fire. Basically, I made the most delicious, rich, crunchy and fruity tiffin: it’s basically a bit like an ol’ skool ‘fridge cake’…

Moreish weekend granola

Hey guys n gals! I never thought I’d see the day when I eschew porridge for some other form of oats. Fair enough if it’s a stack of French toast, but granola? But times have changed, and I’ve baked this granola every Saturday AND Sunday for the last four weeks. It’s a little crunchy, a…

Cannelloni, just like mamma used to make

This recipe is so exciting!! It tastes like real italian cannelloni, with slightly chewy pasta tubes filled with a silky, zesty ‘ricotta’ filling, and swimming in a rich and garlicky tomato sauce. I love it, and as with so many baked dishes, this also tastes amazing 1-2 days after with just a few minutes in…

Rad roasties + ratatouille

Hey gang, I love this simple dinner so much. I mean,  any excuse to eat roast potatoes is going to make me happy,  but the addition of beautifully tender veg and a garlicky sauce for dipping the potatoes or mopping up with crusty bread makes this extra lovely.  Plus, for an extra posh twist, I…

Party-in-my-mouth paella

Hola! I love a good paella, with beautifully soft zesty rice, and a crispy rice crust on the bottom. If you have one of those big paella pans, that’s great, but if you’re cooking for two, you can get away with using your biggest saucepan, or even wok. I’ve tried to make this recipe super…

Falafel muffelatta (massive stuffed picnic sandwich)

Hello! Just as I got very excited the other day about my picnic pasta salad, I’m ready to let you in on the total picnic showstopper I made as the main event. Soggy sandwiches in clingfilm? No more. You’re in muffelatta town now. The word is just an italian way of saying a big, stuffed…

Sweet ‘n’ smoky, lazy pasta salad

Hello friends. The last bank holiday weekend prompted- to my delight- an impromptu picnic on the beach! Of course, upon hearing this, I reached not for my sunglasses or a beach towel, and instead fled to the kitchen in a flurry of excitement. The star of the show is something I will share later, but…

The easiest ever zingy bean salad

Hey everyone! In need of a fast lunch? Perhaps to maximise an afternoon in the sun, or for an al fresco lunch break? I got you. This is one of the easiest lunches you can make, being ready in literally 5 minutes flat. It’s also really versatile, so feel free to swap in veggies like…

Cracking vegan, apple ‘n’ blackberry cobbler with custard

Hey team! Excuse my absence- I have been away on holiday, eating coconut rice and little else. Malaysia is amazing but not that vegan friendly. Upon my return to the UK, I have been delighted to see the generous and jubilant arrival of blackberries, in their glistening thousands. Inspired and in need of calories, I…
