This is so quick, easy and makes a delicious summers day lunch. I was very lucky enough to get hold of some broad bean leaves at the market in Skibbereen at the weekend, which have a superb flavour but are very hard to come by. This would work just as well with rocket, or a baby […]
This is a lovely summer supper for one or two people. It started as a last-day-before-the-grocery-shop dish, but now I do it regularly, sometimes with a simple tomato sauce on the side, sometimes just as it is. It also works well as a side dish.
This is a simply delightful way to eat asparagus on a summers afternoon with a glass of white wine. Try it with some good quality cured ham and some sharp, salty cheese such as Parmesan, pecorino or a mature cheddar. Hollandaise sauce is a great one to master. It will impress everyone when you can […]
This dish is not only a feast for the eyes, it’s delicious, combining the deeply savoury tempeh and zing of pickled red cabbage. It’s also clean, really healthy and vegan. Tempeh is a fermented soya product that uses the whole soybean, unlike tofu. As it uses the whole bean it has a higher protein and […]
This is a really simple, delicious vegetarian dish that delivers on flavour. The mushrooms, onions and Marsala wine pack a real hearty punch and I guarantee both vegetarians and non-vegetarians will enjoy it. Serve with some steamed spuds or mash and briefly blanched kale. If you want something a bit quicker, I highly recommend the […]
This is my take on a warming North African Dish my family love as breakfast or brunch on a lazy Sunday. I have three girls under 6 and they all loved it. The high protein content of the eggs and metabolism boosting potential of the chilli really kick starts the day. The vitamin C from […]
This quick vegetarian dish is so tasty and uses creme fraiche instead cream so it is that bit lower in fat and so better for you and your family. It is important that you saute the mushrooms enough to release the flavours which will make the dish extremely tasty. You can also add finely diced […]
Cauliflower cheese is one of my favourite side dishes and one I make every time I make a roast dinner. One day I was thinking about soup recipes and came up with this. I am glad I did as it is so tasty and of course, like all my recipes, it is very easy and […]
Giant couscous comes from Israel and became popular in the 1950s when there was a shortage of rice. You’ll find it in some supermarkets and health food stores, if you can’t find it use regular couscous instead which can be found in any supermarket. Follow the instructions on the packet then follow the recipe from […]
These are perfect with a roast of any description, especially a Sunday roast. They can be prepared the night before then finished in the oven when your roast is almost done.
