Moroccan Roast Veg w/ Chickpeas + Quick-Pickled Raisins

Moroccan Roast Veg w/ Chickpeas + Quick-Pickled Raisins

It was the first day of spring on Tuesday. Doesn't feel that way where I live. I thought, perhaps, that today's recipe would be a sort of 'last-hoorah' for winter root vegetables, but the weather in London indicates differently!

Anyway, weather-grumbles aside, I made this recipe when I stumbled upon a concept that is little-known in the UK, but should be far better established. And that concept is 'Sheet Pan Dinners'. These are preparations that you pop in to the oven on a 'sheet pan' (baking tray) and come out as a full meal [...]

I was lucky enough to be on holiday in Grenada this week. Not Granada, southern Spain, but Grenada in the Caribbean(!) (which interestingly was so named as it reminded the Spanish sailors of Granada itself). Oddly enough, or perhaps not oddly at all for those who know me, my favourite Grenadan taste experience was not any of their wonderful tropical fruit or delicious vegetable rotis, but a cocktail from the hotel bar [...]

Those of you who follow my Insta-story (the slideshow of snaps from the past day that appears when you click my Instagram profile pic) will be sick of the sight of this breakfast. I've added a photo of this porridge topped with dried figs, toasted seeds and nut butter to the story so many times. It is absolutely my go-to breakfast as these days [...]

Indian Filled Pancakes

Surfing around YouTube one day, I stumbled across a Gordon Ramsay recipe for Indian Pancakes. I was so surprised to see a vegetarian recipe by the man that I watched the video. It’s an enjoyable clip, particularly Ramsay’s tendency not to develop or qualify his remarks: “Ginger. Nice. Garlic. Nice.“ Anyway, they looked delicious. Unfortunately, they were far from vegan, with eggs and dairy products involved.

Intrigued, I set out to veganise them [...]

My brother is a condiment fiend. His favourite? Sriracha Hot Sauce. He is that guy who douses every meal with it. Curry? Sriracha. Pizza? Sriracha. Cereal? Sri- no.. not that far.

He recently added to his arsenal of condiments with 'Sriracha mayo'. And it turns out most brands of Sriracha mayo are vegan! I was so thrilled to hear this we decided to immediately put it to use. The result was the gorgeous stir fry sauce in this recipe: savoury, tangy, sweet, hot.. my mouth is drooling just thinking about it [...]
