Cheesy chickpea cake

Cheesy chickpea cake 5

You guys know how much I love chickpeas, but let’s face it, they don’t have an enormous amount of flavour on their own. That’s precisely why they’re so good at being dressed up in whatever outfit you fancy. Make them taste like pizza, nachos, peanut butter – or in this case, cake! Okay, so this cheesy chickpea cake…

Vegetarian enchiladas for one 4

Vegetarian enchiladas for one

As you may recall from certain events that went down in April, I’m not single. But, the nature of my husband’s work means that he’s often out in the evenings (he’s a musician, a.k.a. rockstar). On those nights, I guess I’m an honorary singleton. I have no desire to be single, but I would quite…

Who else is madly in love with roasted veg? I’ve said it before and I’ll almost certainly say it again – roasting is the less supernatural (and slightly more time-consuming) version of waving a magic wand over vegetables.

Cheesy pesto white bean mash

I am a potato fiend. Whatever form they’re in (mashed, roasted, boiled, baked, fried…), they’re undoubtedly my favourite part of a meal. I’ll quite happily eat them cold too, so don’t you go thinking those leftover roasties are safe… Buuut, although potatoes are far from nutritionless (they contain plenty of vitamin C, potassium and vitamin B6,…

Cheesy Mexican potatoes

I have a new toy in my kitchen! It’s a multicooker – the Redmond RMC-M4500, to be precise. If you’ve not used a multicooker before, you might not know what one is, so let me tell you: utter magic. That’s what it is. This thing stews, fries, steams, cooks rice, makes soup… you can even…
