Spice roasted salmon and Cauliflower

I found this recipe on Cooking Light as I’ve been trying to cut some calories but I don’t like eating boring food. Using lightly smoked salmon fillets and giving it a spice rub really packs a punch and I have been thinking of using the salmon in some Indian sushi. I saw Indian sushi on… Continue reading →

Thai Konjac Noodles

I really hope this post ends up being legible. I was at a hen do yesterday so my brain is in a bit of a fog though the gym sesh definitely helped. Hungover exercising is the best as your brain is not functioning well enough to tell you you can’t get through the work out.… Continue reading →

laksa

Summer may not be the usual season for laksa but Manchester has been living up to its reputation with constant rain. This really is a beautiful dish in taste if not looks. The origin of laksa is not known but it’s somewhere within South-East Asia. I’m avoiding European food until the Euros are over now… Continue reading →

Thai Rice Salad

The Euro football tournament has been a bit of a lifesaver recently and I’m sooo happy England are still in the running at this point. After beating Germany it was lucky that the game was on at the 5pm slot as I had to spend the rest of the evening sobering up. There’s been some… Continue reading →

Date & Goat Cheese quiche

In the UK we do love a quiche, it’s great picnic food along with a scotch egg, pork pie and some Pimms. I make these on a regular basis so expect to see some more on the blog in future. On the Great British Bake Off, there seems to be a snobbery towards having super… Continue reading →

Moutabal

I think most non-meat eaters love eating aubergine. It’s such a versatile vegetable. This moutabal is a blend of aubergine, tahini, garlic, olive oil and lemon. All the good stuff. It doesn’t look great but as Lumiere says in Beauty and the Beast – ‘try the grey stuff – it’s delicious’. The recipe was in… Continue reading →

Beetroot and Stilton Risotto

I was hesitant about putting this on the blog as I know it’s my third risotto but it’s so different from the other two posts that it merits a post. Also I was quite keen to see how a slow-cooker risotto would come out compared to the usual standing over a pan. There wasn’t much… Continue reading →

Coconut Dhal with paneer

Though I’ve already posted a recipe for dhal on this website, the first Tarka Dhal recipe was more gently spiced whereas this one is more of a flavour hit round the chops reminiscent to a curry. This one also you do in the slow-cooker. I served it with paneer which I crisped up in some… Continue reading →

Brie and peach salad

I’d never been a huge fan of Brie up until I participated in a virtual wine and cheese night over Christmas. We all looked on the Waitrose website, chose a mini bottle of wine each and a type of cheese to go with it, My friend picked Brie de Meaux which I’d never tried before.… Continue reading →

Blue Cheese Cheesecake

After the absolute delight that was Yotam’s aubergine cheesecake, I was extremely keen to try his blue cheese cake from his book ‘Nopi’. It did not disappoint. I recommend it best of all warm from the oven but it’s also delicious chilled from the fridge. The base isn’t baked in this recipe before the cheese… Continue reading →
