Butter roasted radishes

Butter roasted radishes-5

Since it seems to be the week for using vegetables that I don’t often use: I don’t think I have ever cooked with radishes before. I’ve had them raw a few times in salads, and to be honest they’ve never particularly inspired me. I’m sure they’re lovely if you’re into salads (is anyone ‘into’ salads?), but cold,…

Leek and sweet potato cannelloni 3

Leek and sweet potato cannelloni

I very rarely cook with sweet potatoes, but for some reason I’ve used them about three times in the last week, and now I’m wondering why they don’t make a more regular occurrence in my kitchen! They’re just as easy to prepare as normal potatoes, but they cook a lot quicker, and they’re potentially even…

I was sent a breakfast hamper a few weeks ago, and in it (amongst other things) there were some of those sachets of instant oatmeal – the kind you just add water to. They were absolutely delicious and I loved being able to have a nice hot breakfast with barely any effort – much more…

A thick and fluffy scone-like topping, sat on soft and warm apples and pears, with plenty of cinnamon to boot. In case anyone thinks that having a food blog makes you the best cook ever: I actually…

Lemon feta chickpea meatballs 4

Lemon and feta chickpea meatballs

There’s obviously no meat in these meatballs, but I couldn’t bring myself to call them just ‘balls’. Even ‘vegetarian balls’ sounded a bit odd, so meatballs it is. But rest assured, these lemon and feta chickpea meatballs are entirely vegetarian. I very rarely make my own meatballs – I cook with shop-bought soy-based meatballs every now…

Beetroot and goat's cheese spread 6

Beetroot and goat’s cheese spread

Beetroot and goat’s cheese is such a perfect combination – I know it’s been done lots of times by lots of people (myself included!), but it just works so well that it seems a shame to do anything else with the ingredients. Here’s a super quick way to use the flavour combination – beetroot and…
