This is a really hearty soup that’s cheap to make and that can be thrown together in a few minutes. It’s perfect for a cold winter’s day or even a school or work lunch.
Turkey mince is something that’s easy to find in supermarkets and it’s pretty cheap to buy. It’s also a really lean meat so it’s great for anyone who, like me, tries to eat healthily most of the time. This dish is jam packed with vegetables and proteins from the chickpeas and beans. I have this […]
As usual this is extremely easy to make especially if you use your slow cooker. You will find Coleman’s mustard powder in most supermarkets apart from Lidl and Aldi.
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 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 […]
