Latest Recipes
Peperonata AgrodolceThere are many versions of these sweet and sour peppers, rather than olives you could use capers, toasted pine nuts or even some raisins stewed at the same time as the peppers so they soak up the juices and become nice and plump. This is a great side dish to go with grilled fish or indeed with cold meats and crusty bread, I've even been known to stir some through some cooked cold pasta for lunch.
Barley and vegetable soupWe love soups in winter and this is a nourishing comforting bowl to warm the soul. Feel free to make it vegetarian by using vegetable stock and make it vegan by using vegan cheese, use beef stock instead of chicken if you have a preference, I'd even go as far as saying use Oxo or Bisto if that's your choice. I've used some basic vegetables here, onions, garlic, carrot and leek so again you can add or swap using whatever veg you have in at the time. NOTE: Prep time doesn't include soaking the barley
Carrot, lentil and miso soupAutumn through to winter always gets us craving for a bowl of soup, miso is an ingredient we have embraced the past few years and always have some in the fridge, it sits happily there for ages and it's very good for you. The inspiration here came from a book called 'Miso Tasty' by Bonnie Chung and it will teach you every thing you need to know about Miso.
