Since embarking on my new edible regime I’m doing pretty ok. I don’t miss meat that much and I can live with loads of pulses and most of the milk substitutes out there. I still have bad and bloaty days, but the good days are better than they were and my veg consumption is through […]Read More Smoky Cauli Soup
This dinner came about after one of those weekends when we were too busy enjoying ourselves to get to the shops and thus ended up with something of a Monday night fridge famine of old veg and older halloumi cheese. I will do pretty much anything to avoid a supermarket trip after work, so with […]Read More Summer Garden Stew
It’s summer. It’s hot. Hot summer life is far too fleeting to spend ages in the kitchen but also one of the worst times to resort to cruddy over-salted convenience food too. I try to counteract the burgers and ice creams is by making up a couple of substantial salads to keep in the fridge […]Read More Easy Quinoa Salad

I remember seeing chard mentioned on Masterchef increasingly frequently and assuming it was about to become the next go-to-food-twat ingredient taking the supermarket by storm. That was a while ago, as it’s been at least two years since I have paid any attention to Masterchef and I am still yet to recall a single incident […]Read More Are You Going To Eat…..Chard?
Following recent dietary requirements and a constant glut of the superfood-that-we-aren’t-allowed-to-call-a-superfood-anymore Kale recipes, I have had several bashes at making my own kale chips at home. They are pretty simple to do, though you have to pay attention, and make a fine addition to any nibbles plate or weekend sports observation table. If, like […]Read More Easy Kale Chips
It’s that time of year when Christmas is over and you’ve had too much booze, brie and baked goods so it’s time to switch immediately to cayenne tea and rocket salads, right? Maybe best throw in a side of diazepam and hide all the sharp kitchen utensils while you’re at it. So many January eating […]Read More Adventures in Slow Cooking: Broccoli Cheese Soup
I first came across a broccoli salad as a side for possibly the best chicken wings I’ve ever eaten in Mighty Quinn’s East Village incarnation. How it took me 13 months to reproduce I’m not exactly sure, but I did in the end. My attempt came out for a soul food inspired family dinner recently […]Read More Broccoli Salad. It’s so much better than it sounds.
It had to happen, right? I had to get something else edible from my first summer of amateur cultivation? Well that something turns out to be carrots, Nantes 5 carrots specifically and I am still reeling in the thrill of that little harvest 2 weeks ago. After tiny onions, sludge ridden herbs and desolated cabbage […]Read More Grow Your Own- A Triumph of Carrots!
I’ve found myself sofa bound the last few days due to being unfit in ways I couldn’t imagine and subsequently presenting myself with a grade II gastrocnemius tear. I say gastrocnemius rather than ‘calf’ not just because I’m a tosser, but also as it sounds mildly foodie. In my state of reclined recuperation I’ve learned […]Read More Slow Carb Curry
