Adaptable Mediterranean Dip

Adaptable Mediterranean Dip

Spurred on by some of you telling me you now use my Adaptable One Pot Vegan Curry as your go-to curry recipe, I thought I'd apply the style to another essential component of my diet: dips. I've managed to crack a good basic formula for blending beans, oil, salt, lemon, garlic and herbs into a magically silky dip [...]

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 [...]

Adaptable One Pot Curry

A few years ago, while learning how to cook at university, I realised that to make many curries you follow more or less the same sequence of steps.

Better Hummus

Better Hummus

Let me preface this post by saying, obviously, I did not create the original recipe for hummus. But I have tried many hummus recipes, and always found myself customising the recipe to suit my (needy?) tastebuds.

Most supermarket hummus pots have masses of oil added, and often cheap oil at that, to reduce the cost and increase its shelf-life. There has actually been media coverage recently of savoury dips being 'salt and fat traps' [...]

Date & Banana Protein Smoothie

Date & Banana Protein Smoothie

It doesn't really make sense to me how this smoothie is so delicious but is actually healthy. Scanning the ingredients list, individually, each ingredient is certainly good for you. It must just be one of those things that are greater than the sum of their parts? Like an excellent football team, much unlike the one I play on.

Most of the reason, I think, is that [...]
