Tagliatelle in tartare sauce

I was having Italian lessons up until a few weeks ago but with my company conference and having COVID I missed booking the most current course. It’s probably for the best as there was an older woman in the class who was a few steps behind everyone else and I wasn’t getting anything done in… Continue reading →

Lady Marmalade Salad

I made this salad as an accompaniment to my anchovy and olive pissasladiere. I wasn’t 100% happy with that so I won’t post about it this time but this salad from Jamie Oliver’s ‘Veg’ was really something special even though I couldn’t get the chicory that’s meant to be in it and subbed with Romaine… Continue reading →

‘Alsatian’ gnocci

I call this post ‘Alsatian’ as I adapted a recipe from Rachel Khoo’s Little Paris Kitchen switching out the pasta for gnocchi and making it veggie so I’m not sure how Alsatian it is anymore. In saying that I think you could Anglify it by serving with mash and it would be equally as good.… Continue reading →

Mole with avocado salsa

I was recommended the food show ‘Somebody Feed Phil’ by a friend and I’ve been craving Mexican food ever since as the first episode was set in Mexico. It’s a great show though I’m not sure how he would have got on in Mexico if he was a much stricter Jew than what he actually… Continue reading →

Halloumi Orange Salad

It’s kind of summer in the UK (well as much as we get) so I fancied a nice summery salad which I found in this on the BBC Good Food website. The Vitamin C probably did me a few favours with my COVID too. Early this month the two final episodes of Stranger Things aired… Continue reading →

Spiced Carrot Fritters

As may have been clear from this blog I’m a huge fan of Jamie Oliver’s cookbook ‘Veg’ and this might well be my favourite recipe from it so far. I was extra impressed that I’d managed to get it on the table as I’d finally had my first confirmed COVID infection after attending our yearly… Continue reading →

Bulgur & Veg Khichree

This recipe is another winner from the book ‘Simple Spice Vegetarian’. It’s actually a mix of rice, lentils and bulgur wheat which I kind of questioned when I first saw the recipe but the mixture of textures and the ability of the different elements to soak up the spices really added something to the flavour.… Continue reading →

West Indian Pepper Pot

Back when I was a meat eater I used to like cooking some Caribbean curries from Levi Roots book ‘Caribbean Food Made Easy’. Levi Roots actually became famous on the show Dragons Den, selling his own Reggae Reggae sauce. Unfortunately, I didn’t manage to succeed in finding a way to make his curries work without… Continue reading →

Lentil Bolognese

For me, a classic Italian pasta with Ragu is a big comfort meal. Lentils provide all of the protein in the meal you lack from the minced beef/pork and have just a little bit of chew to mix up the texture. This recipe was from ‘Bosh – Healthy Vegan’. I take Italian lessons each week… Continue reading →

Greens Mac ‘N’ Cheese

I continue with my quest to try all of the recipes in the Jamie Oliver ‘Veg’ cookbook with this greens mac ‘n’ cheese. I guess it’s one of those recipes you give to kids where you hide the veggies by putting them with some cheese and pasta. My beautiful cat Earl Grey has developed arthritis… Continue reading →
