Mushroom, Avocado and Feta Tacos

These tacos are the perfect example of how vegetarian food can be fast, satisfying, healthy and full of flavour.

A complete taste sensation! Serves: 2 (makes 4 tacos) Prep time: 20 …

Kidney Bean and Red Pepper Burgers

June 29|2015

These burgers have a wonderful smoky flavour to them and are a good source of protein and iron. I prep these the day before as they need to freeze to keep their shape on the BBQ. Alternatively, they can be cooked in a frying pan in a little olive oil until browned on both sides.

This delicious, traditional Middle-Eastern recipe has it all. Baked eggs nestled in a bed of tangy and spicy tomatoes, red pepper, onions, smoked paprika with fresh flat leaf parsley scattered over the top. Perfectly more-ish with warm bread to mop up the juices. It’s so satisfying, I can’t decide whether it’s best for brunch, lunch or dinner. Making it all the more easy, you can …

Asparagus has come into season now, so I like to take advantage because …

Sweet Potato Gnocchi

April 20|2015

Adding the sweet potato to this gnocchi gives it a delicate sweetness that is complimented by the sage. I spend a bit longer than I usually would preparing this, but it makes enough to save for other meals, and at weekends I have a bit more time to enjoy the process. I cook what I need at the time, and then freeze the rest which can be defrosted for a quick meal when I crave it. It freezes well for up to 2 months.

Cheese Aubergine Oven Bake

April 19|2015

This dish is tasty made to this recipe, but sometimes, just for a change, I like to vary it. A pinch of chilli flakes added to the tomato sauce provides a great kick, and 100g veggie mince cooked into the tomato sauce adds another texture to the meal. This is good served with sautéed leeks and a leafy salad or steamed green beans.
