The husband and I are a but partial to a cooked veggie breakfast. In fact we’d eat a cooked breakfast for breakfast, lunch and dinner, given the chance. So, when I came across this recipe for sweet potato hash and spicy beans I couldn’t resist. Continue reading
What’s not to like about a meal that involves delicious ingredients and minimal washing up? Well, Anna Jones’ sweet courgettes with crispy chickpeas delivers on both counts. Continue reading
I love trying out new salads. Ottolenghi’s lentil and herb salad is one of my favourites but I’ve wheeled it out time and time again, so, I decided it was high time to find a new salad. Scouring the internet I discovered this chopped Greek salad recipe from Pinch of Yum, and I’d definitely recommend it as a go to salad mix. Continue reading
This delicious modern moussaka (loving known as moose-ka-ka in our house) was one of the first recipes I cooked from Anna Jones’ a modern way to cook. I’m quite partial to moussaka as it’s packed with some of my all time favourite ingredients: tomatoes, aubergines and potatoes. Continue reading
I’ve always got an abundance of chickpeas and spinach hanging around the house. Spinach, because I use it most mornings when I make a green smoothie, and chickpeas, because they’re always good to have around. So, finding myself with nothing to cook for dinner and needing something in a hurry, I had a quick look for something to make with spinach and chickpeas, and happened upon this simple, but every so tasty recipe for spinach and chickpea curry from those lovely people at BBC Good Food.

When I spied this tasty looking dish in a modern way to cook, and noticed that it only takes 30 minutes to make, I was immediately sold. and suggested to the husband that I throw it together for dinner.

I’m going to apologise in advance. It’s only a small apology as I’m in love with Anna Jones’ recipes – as anyone who has read my blog knows. But, just recently, I’ve decided to stop pretending that I want to eat anyone elses food and cook my way through her books. They are fab and if I had to cook from them for the rest of my life, I don’t think I’d be that bothered. So, sorry! For the next few weeks it’s going to be an Anna fest (or feast, if you like).

There’s absolutely no doubt that Yotam Ottolenghi makes exceedingly good salads, and his castelluccio lentils with tomatoes and gorgonzola is one of my absolute favourites. it’s reasonably easy to throw together and is jam-packed full of fresh herbs, salty cheese, nutty lentils and sweet oven roasted tomatoes. In a word, it’s delicious. Continue reading
I stepped away from the pans and let the husband loose in the kitchen, and after this little effort, I think I might do it a bit more often.
The fish-eating vegetarian husband hates tinned tuna. He thinks it looks and smells like a tin of cat food. But, he’s a huge fan of the fresh stuff, and loves the occassional tuna steak, and so do I. Continue reading
