Roasted vegetable chickpea pâté

Roasted vegetable chickpea pate 1

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. It can literally transform something from a hard, bland lump to a sweet, sticky, crispy nugget of…

Mexican torta 6

Mexican torta with refried beans and guacamole

A Mexican torta is basically just a glorified sandwich – at least, my version is anyway. I’m sure I’ll get lots of messages from Mexican readers educating me about how a Mexican torta is so much more than a sandwich (which I welcome, by the way!) – but, this version is basically just a sandwich. Now,…

Healthy spinach dip 7

Healthy spinach dip

It’s dip time! Healthy spinach dip, at that! Usually when I think of a dip recipe, I think of something gooey and cheesy, with very little nutritional value. And although I love (!) gooey, cheesy things, there’s no reason at all why healthy dips can’t be just as delicious! This healthy spinach dip is crammed…

Classic Welsh rarebit 2

Classic Welsh rarebit

I’ve talked about cheese on toast before when I made my cheesy tomato and avocado toasts, and Welsh rarebit is another variation – except this time, instead of plain old cheese, it has a gooey cheese sauce with (in this case) beer and mustard and butter and all sorts of yummy bits. Did you hear that? Beer in your…

Quick falafel 4

Quick falafel

I always seem to have the same issue with falafel – they can be soooo dryyyy. Usually I need a glass of water to get them down, and it really puts me off ever ordering them. So I thought it was time to make my own, and to make them how I like them – soft…
