Sticky honey soy aubergine

Sticky honey soy aubergine 5.jpg

THIS AUBERGINE. I don’t know what I can say to convince you just how incredible this sticky honey soy aubergine is, so you’ll just have to believe me. It might not look like much, but the flavours are ridiculous. It’s beautifully sweet, with a warm heat from the chilli flakes, and a salty kick from…

Thai curry lentil bakes with spicy garlic breadcrumbs

I looove lentils. I’m always trying to find new ways to cook with them though, because I can only enjoy a plain old lentil dal so many times before it gets a bit old. Lentils can be absolutely delicious just boiled simply in vegetable stock with some onion and garlic, but it’s not the most…

Beer pizza crust

Homemade pizza dough is something I’ve always struggled with. You’d think it would be pretty hard to make a bad pizza, but somehow I’ve achieved it on many (…many…) occasions.

Weeknight tikka masala

The Commonwealth Games are starting in Glasgow next week! I’m not really into sport on a day-to-day basis, but when something big comes along like the Commonwealth Games (or the Olympics, or even the World Cup), I do get a bit drawn in. When else can you watch people jumping into water very beautifully, or…

Basil cucumber gazpacho 5.jpg

Basil cucumber gazpacho

Who fancies eating summer? If so: go for basil cucumber gazpacho. Summer personified (umm… persoupified?). I’ve been trying to post summery recipes for a while now, but it’s a bit tricky to work in the abstract. Summer recipes aren’t exactly what pops into my head when it’s grey and rainy outside (it’s July, England! Get…
