Chorizo Arancini

Risotto is one of our common weekday meals, but I always make too much. Always! So instead of just eating it for lunch the next day, I thought I would make arancini. Arancini is risotto shaped into balls, coated in breadcrumbs and then deep fried. But I didn’t want to deep fry mine so I…

Chai Spiced Coconut Porridge

We’ve all been told that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and I agree! I can’t seem to start my day without a hearty breakfast, and porridge is the go to choice. It truly does keep me full until lunch but like anything, I get bored of the same old combinations. Therefore…

Urad Daal (Black Lentil Daal)

I hope you’ve all had a great bank holiday weekend. What is going on with the weather? Snow in April? Now I’ve seen it all. Bring back the sun please, I’m cold. If you’re anything like me, you’ve been over indulging the past few days. As lovely as it was, I now crave some simple…

Fish Burgers with Harissa Mayo

I have your Friday night fakeaway ready for you! Yes this is a very naughty recipe, but let’s just put that aside. Let’s focus on the positives here. Homemade crispy chip shop style fish, spicy harissa mayonnaise with crisp shredded lettuce and a soft brioche bun, served with homemade chips. Yes please! If we can’t…

Grilled Masala Cheese Sandwich

Who doesn’t love a grilled cheese sandwich? Oozy, warm and oh so naughty. This sandwich is inspired by my trip to Mumbai, where I tasted the best cheese sandwich ever. It was spicy and indulgent and seeing as I won’t be going back any time soon, I decided to give it a go myself. This…

Sausage Pizza

Did anyone catch Jamie Oliver’s Keep Cooking Family Favourites this week? He made this amazing Sausage Pizza and I just had to try it! It was a quick pizza with a sun-dried tomato pesto base, topped with sausage meatballs, mozzarella, red onions, pine nuts, rosemary and wait for it…grapes! Yes I know I was shocked…

Spinach and Ricotta Cannelloni

Sometimes its nice to make something that’s a little more special. Whether its for your other half or you just feel like treating yourself (why not?), this is a great recipe to adapt. There are so many recipes out there so feel free to put your own spin on it, but this is how I…

Chipotle Veggie Chilli Con Carne

I absolutely love Mexican food but sometimes get a little bored with the same old combinations. This veggie chilli con carne is certainly not boring and is definitely one to try. Spicy, smokey and hearty, this chilli is made with mixed beans and vegetables and therefore super healthy too (unless you top it with too…

Vegan Stuffed Peppers

My husband and I try to eat a vegan/vegetarian meal at least a couple of times a week, as I believe that we don’t need to eat so much meat and fish all week long. Plus it’s cheaper! Eating a vegetarian meal is not a compromise, they can be delicious and satisfying. This recipe is…

Banana, Coconut and Lime Pancakes

It’s Pancake Day in two days! Have you thought about what pancakes you are going to make? Sweet or savoury? I love English pancakes, they are thin, soft and ready for any filling you want. I believe there are some foods in life that just make you happy, and pancakes are one of them. I…
