Celebrating tomatoes

Apparently it’s British Tomato Week (21st-27th May) – who knew? This versatile vegetable (or is it a fruit?) is a staple in many diets, forming the base of innumerable dishes. Eaten raw, cooked, sun-dried, blended, as sauce or even drunk (bloody Mary anyone?). The list is endless. There are also more than 10,000 different varieties […]

Turkey Bolognese

So this week’s food blog is a different version of the family favourite: Spaghetti Bolognese. I’ve replaced beef with turkey mince and served it with seasoned sweet potato slices as a natural carbohydrate source rather than spaghetti. Why would you swap out lean beef mince I hear you cry? If simply having a change isn’t enough, […]

Sweet Potato Risotto

I’ve always said I don’t like risotto. But it’s weird, when I think about it, I’m not sure I’ve ever eaten risotto. I don’t know if I’ve got it into my head that I don’t like it. Or if I have actually tried it once, didn’t like it and blocked it from my mind. With […]

Warm Green Vegetable Salad

The sun is finally here – for this week at least! For this food blog, I thought of spring and took inspiration from a Deliciously Ella recipe. I’ve not had asparagus for a long time (it’s not fodmap friendly), but I do love it. There really is a healthy feel about an all green vegetable salad – […]

Vegan Carbonara

I’ve just recently discovered nutritional yeast and I’m now a big fan. You can get it fortified with Vitamin B12 which often is difficult to obtain in a vegan diet.  It’s got kind of a nutty, cheesy flavour. Hence it’s use in this vegan carbonara. This may not be the complete substitute for some, but it’s […]

Vegan Comfort Food – Vegan Shepherd’s Pie

There was a conversation during my massage group on Tuesday, about the difference between a Cottage Pie and a Shepherd’s Pie. Just in case you didn’t know – it’s the meat that’s the difference. In a Shepherd’s Pie it’s lamb (shepherds watch their flocks by night!) and in a Cottage Pie it’s beef. Apparently one […]

Caribbean Rice and Beans

We had a team lunch at our neighbours the Northern Monk Brewery a few weeks ago. Inspired by their menu, I decided I would try to recreate my own Caribbean rice and beans. Most people probably think of “I’m a celebrity, get me out of here” when they hear rice and beans. But this Caribbean […]

Roasted Vegetable Soup Recipe

I know what you’re thinking; we can’t seriously be giving you a recipe for roasted vegetable soup?! Surely, you just chop up some veg, whack them in the oven, blitz them in a blender and hey presto, done. Nope. For starters, I’m not blitzing all  of the veg as I’m making a chunky soup. Secondly, […]

The word shrove comes from the word “Shrive”  meaning to obtain absolution for one’s sins by way of confession. After people had repented and paid penance, they would use up all fattening food in the cupboards which were not permitted during […]
