Cured egg yolks: a (successful) experiment

I’ve seen cured egg yolks growing in popularity around the internet of late, with slivers of grateable golden yolk showing up on instagram and pinterest. A quick google shows similar adaptations of eggs cured in salt and sugar showing up in Epicurious, bon appetit, America’s Test Kitchen and bloggers like Eva from Adventures in Cooking…

Spiced roast cauliflower soup (it’s vegan too)

Ah, the humble cauliflower. Over the last decade it saw something of a renaissance. Once a reminder of overcooked school meals we saw it transform into rice and pizza bases, seen alongside pasta and fish and even hidden in smoothies. Alongside other brassicas (looking at you, kale) it rose to stardom and has settled into…

Roasted pepper vegetarian chilli

There are some evenings that demand an easy recipe, where you can chuck in the ingredients and just stir from time to time. Minimum thought, minimum effort.

Carrot top pesto: An (unsuccessful) experiment

Harry and I bought carrots this week. We never buy carrots and I’m not entirely sure why.

So what do you make? Potato…

Spiced Cauliflower ‘Steaks’ with Lemon Yogurt Dressing

I’d like to put my hands up and say that I’ve always loved cauliflower. Long before people were making rice and pizzas out of the stuff I still enjoyed it – even better if it was swimming in a heart-stopping cheese sauce. However, I love how popular it has become, with more inventive ways to…

Roast Beetroot and Watercress Salad

As tempted as I am to forget about summer and start living that autumn lifestyle (jeans and jumpers, walks in the woods, watching films on a rainy day…) I have to remind myself that come January I’ll be begging for some warmth again. So whilst it’s tempting to hone my hot chocolate recipe instead I…

Tahini Greens

Tahini is something I’ve discovered fairly recently. I had a jar sitting in the fridge of my old flat for about a year before making a recipe that used it, but I now make this pretty much on a weekly basis. Tahini has definitely become more popular in recent years with an increased interest in…
