This Month’s Recipes: January 2015

TMR Jan 2015 collage

I very, very nearly wrote 2014 in the title of this post. Every year it takes me until at least July to consistently get the date correct, and then it’s nearly time to change again. Woe is me. Anyway, 2015 got off to a good (but very busy!) start here in the Amuse Your Bouche…

Double decker chickpea tacos 4

Double decker chickpea tacos

Before I made these double decker tacos, I’d never cooked with hard corn taco shells before. I’d eaten them a few times (though I can’t for the life of me remember where), and I know I didn’t enjoy them too much – purely because they make such a mess! The tacos look beautiful when they’re neatly…

Kale and avocado burritos 5

Kale and avocado burritos

Okay, this is probably more of a kale and avocado wrap than a kale and avocado burrito, but since I have absolutely no idea what the heck a burrito actually is, let’s just go with burrito.

I absolutely adore mushroom risotto. It’s a very common vegetarian option in restaurants, and I…

Tikka mushrooms 4

Tikka mushrooms

This might sound a bit strange, but having a food blog, I often cook things that I’m not sure I’ll like. If I only ever cooked things I knew I’d love, this blog would soon turn into a macaroni cheese fest. (which sounds amazing, by the way) These tikka mushrooms were one of the recipes that…

Mushroom and walnut bolognese 5

Mushroom and walnut bolognese

The walnut ‘meat’ returns! I’ve used it twice before now, piled high on roasted potato slices, and stuffed into lettuce wraps. Since both of these recipes spiced it up and made it taco meat style, this time I thought I’d do something a bit different and use it to make spaghetti bolognese (a firm favourite). I usually use…
