Lunchbox – life changing leek and potato salad

Today is not your average day. Oh no! Today is the day a potato changed lives.   Before we get to the story, let’s first take a moment to appreciate the humble spud. A sturdy and versatile staple, these bad boys can be baked, boiled, roasted, röstied, smashed, mashed, hassle-backed, or dauphinoised; not to mention…

Brunch at Bühler and Co – a.k.a veggie heaven

Brunch.   AM I RIGHT!?   Brunch is one of my favourite things to do EVER. D’you wanna know why..? a) its name ACTUALLY allows for a meal the size of two meals and b) it’s almost always shared with friends.   Food and friends is, to me, sheer, unadulterated joy. Especially when that food…

Lunchbox – Pinterest and Disney inspired ratatouille

This recipe came about because of a picture I saw on Pinterest. It was a spiral of gorgeous veggies, cut into slices, one after the other and reminded me of the adorable Disney film in which a rat becomes a top chef in a traditional and highly respected French restaurant (has there ever been a…

Butternut squash and chorizo stew

It’s definitely starting to feel like autumn. The days are getting shorter and the evenings are getting colder, so what better way to warm yourself up than with this gorgeous butternut squash and chorizo stew. From start to finish, this recipe takes around an hour to make, but it’s super easy and can be left…

Red Thai curry with mango and coriander

This recipe is inspired by the most incredible red Thai curry I had while in Cornwall, cooked by a family friend and borrowed from the wonderful Nigella. The addition of the mango was simply inspired, so I was straight back in the kitchen as soon as I got home in order to create my own…

Sirloin steak with mustard parsnip mash

This mustard mash is a game changer. I was in the kitchen recently with my boyfriend, showing him how to cook a few healthy, wholesome alternatives to pasta and we were whipping up the parsnip mash to serve alongside a beef stew. He saw some mustard on the table from a previous recipe and suggested…

Lunchbox – baked sweet potato three ways

The one thing my friends and family always ask for is lunch inspiration and I completely get it! Spending £5 (at least) on a salad that’s reasonably uninspiring but the only alternative to a sandwich isn’t exactly an exciting lunch. And yes, healthy food chains are popping up everywhere in London and that’s great, but…

Vegan lentil chilli*

*I served this dish with a dollop of natural yoghurt when styling, as I don’t follow a vegan diet. This is not compulsory and the recipe is otherwise 100% vegan.  I love a big bowl of chunky chilli packed full of spices and topped with fresh coriander. When I was growing up we always had…

Chicory, apple and feta salad with a lemon and honey dressing

I’ve never cooked with chicory before, so when I came across it by chance at the supermarket the other day I picked up a couple of bulbs and took them home to try. I’ve seen restaurants combine the veggie with blue cheese and walnuts, so I used that as my inspiration and developed the recipe…

Sweet potato and chorizo soup

Soup recipes tend to be pretty simple and this one definitely is. By roasting all the veg together you minimise mess and don’t have to worry about constantly checking on a boiling pan. With not a lot of effort at all you’ve got a healthy, filling, delicious lunch that is perfect for taking to work…

Asparagus, pea and rocket risotto

  My boyfriend’s parents went to Florence recently and bought me the ultimate foodie gift… a truffle gift set! It included truffle-infused olive oil, truffle dressing, mushroom and truffle sauce and truffle parmesan cream, the latter of which I used liberally in this recipe. If you can find some, I highly recommend you try it…
