Korean Style Pancakes with Spicy Fried Beansprouts

korean style pancakes

In recognition of the fact it is National Vegetarian Week, I thought I would try to create something a little special, possibly a little unusual, for all of my veggie friends out there. Influenced by my love of Korean food, I have created a dish that would satisfy both vegetarians and fellow chilli fans alike. […]

Spring Green Quinoa Salad

I didn’t set out to write a post about a spring green quinoa salad. Since returning from Nepal, two weeks before the earthquake, I have been trying to find the right way to compose a post about this amazing country.  I have finally decided upon how I am going to write it and I am […]

Spring Pasta with Asparagus Peas & Feta

The arrival of spring brings so many good things to the cook’s table. Asparagus for example, is always a welcome sight to see. Sometimes I want to eat them simply with melted butter but at other times I like to include them into family meals. My spring pasta with asparagus, peas and Feta cheese is […]

Buttermilk Breakfast Muffins

buttermilk breakfast muffins

These muffins were very difficult to name. Yes they are buttermilk breakfast muffins but they are also so much more than that. Oaty, fruit packed, super duper light and low in sugar not to mention healthy-ish, I used spelt and wholemeal flour, two fruits and one veg. The trouble is they are so good the […]

Supergreens Soup

After my first experiment with a green smoothie, I thought I would try my hand at making a supergreens soup. All the goodness of a green smoothie but in soup form. What turns a green smoothie into a soup? Heat. That is where my Froothie comes into it’s own. Hot soup blended to perfection within […]

Valentine Mochaccino Mousse

Does anyone actually go out and eat in restaurants on Valentine’s day? It is a contrived scenario to find yourself in. A restaurant only set up with tables of two, a single stem rose in a thin vase and lots of pink splashed around looking anything but pretty in pink. I purposefully avoid restaurants on […]

Green Goddess Smoothie

This is my first foray into the world of green smoothies. I was thinking of the perfect combination which would get me kick-started into enjoying the benefits of a glass of green goodness so I came up with an idea for a Green Goddess Smoothie. I thought a good place to start would be by […]

Jerusalem Artichoke Chestnut & Mushroom Soup

mushroom soup

I have for you a soup that truly reflects this time of the year. Earthy, woodsy, deeply rich flavours speak for themselves. Before making this soup, I hadn’t eaten Jerusalem artichokes for years. I remember a time when Jerusalem artichoke puree came with everything, I think around the same time as celeriac became a big […]

Christmas Vegetable Strudel

Christmas vegetable strudel

Just before I head off to begin my Christmas celebrations I wanted to share with you my Christmas vegetable strudel. It could not be simpler to prepare and even though I would class it as a vegetarian main course, I would happily add a slice to my turkey dinner plate. It contains all of the […]
