Lunchbox – roasted garlic and cauliflower soup – ft. dukkah

I’m well aware I’ve been sharing a lot of soup recipes recently. But let me tell you why: They’re super easy to make They’re warming and satisfying, especially when it’s really extremely very cold They’re fab for freezing – I’m all about the batch-make meals They’re easy to take into work – cue super cool…

Sweet potato and courgette curry (and asking strangers to open jars..!)

Sweet potato and courgette curry. Made with onions, garlic, spices, veggies, stock, coconut milk, salt. Simmer and bubble and serve with brown rice. Yada yada yada. The recipe is not what’s important today. *Whaaaat?* See that pickled red onion in that picture down there? That non-essential ingredient that’s for photography purposes only and doesn’t affect the…

Lunchbox – one-pot greenoa bowl

So last week I introduced you all to greenoa.™ It’s a delightful mix of greens and quinoa and you can witness the history-in-the-making creativity BRAINWAVE for yourself just here.   However, last week I served it with lemony buttery chicken and some pan-fried spring onions and while it was DELICIOUS, it’s not vegan. And the…

Lunchbox – easy, no prep, Artichoke soup

Okie dokie artichokie. Let’s make some soup. I hardly ever eat artichokes, but that’s not because I don’t like them. In fact, artichokes on pizza (alongside olives and rocket) is heaven on a crust if you ask me! Instead, what puts me off is the ridiculously extensive prep. Or as I like to call it:…

Zesty lemon chicken with quinoa and greens

Hey, it’s me again. And today I bring you zesty, lemony, buttery chicken with a big fat helping of greens and quinoa. Or GREENOA! (how has this only just come to me!?) I first had greenoa™ about a month or so ago when cooking at my boyfriend’s flat, only without the creative title. That spark…

Lunchbox – how to build your own 5 ingredient Buddha bowl

Hey friends. Today’s recipe is pretty easy. SO easy in fact that you might actually question what I’ve been doing with my time… You might be all ‘food blogger my ass’. Well, let me step in here and defend my corner of the internet. Yes, I did hesitate before uploading a 5 ingredient ‘just roast…

5 ingredient creamy cauliflower sauce

I love a good creamy sauce.   Mac and cheese? Umm, yes! Béchamel? Mmmhhmm! Creamy mustard pasta with a dollop of parmesan? Yep, you can spoon feed the stuff straight into my mouth please and thank you!     However, I could sometimes do with a helping of blissful ignorance when the recipe calls for…

Sugar Free January Challenge

I’ve decided to kick the year off with a sugar free challenge! From the 3rd January until the end of the month I will document what I imagine to be a rather entertaining experiment, considering my favourite foods on this earth are jam doughnuts and chocolate. (And sausage and mash and onion gravy, but that’s not…

Lunchbox – Christmas miracle sprouts, with a maple and tahini dressing

You’re sat at the Christmas table, family shouting at each other across the turkey, kids tucking in despite being told they should wait, and drinks toppling over as everyone reaches for the bread sauce. Then your uncle, or granny, or whoever it is that’s hosting that year, unenthusiastically chucks a couple of sprouts at your…

Lunchbox – griddled aubergine and red pepper sourdough sarnie

A sarnie for lunch. Revolutionary I know! We’re all very busy people doing very important grown-up things and have little time for the ‘boring’ things in life, like taking the bins out, doing the washing up, and being sensible. Problem is, cooking and preparing healthy recipes often falls into this same category (sad face) as…

Lunchbox – warming red lentil and kale soup

Question*: tell me what you think about me. *Not a question, but when it’s Beyoncé you let it go, right?   A little while ago I invited you all to tell me what you thought of my blog. I asked if there was anything you wanted to see more of; anything you wanted to see…
