Latest Recipes
Parmesan and Miso Cabbage riceThis recipe was put together as a result of reading an article about a 5 ingredient miso, parmesan spaghetti recipe and the lemon, black pepper, pecorino and cabbage rice recipe by Sabrina Ghayour, a favourite cookbook chef of mine, from her vegetarian book Bazaar. I have used a white soya miso here, white barley miso or indeed any miso of choice would work well, you'll get the same flavour just a different coloured end result, but who cares about the colour when it tastes so good.
Prawn and spinach risottoWe do love a risotto, it's pleasurably soothing and relaxing to make and the rich, creamy result is perfect comfort food, all that's required is some patience for stirring, a bowl and a spoon. There is no cheese in this recipe but feel free to indulge and don't be afraid to use extra virgin olive olive when frying the vegetable base, if Italians can use it for cooking them so can you.
Miso pickled mushroomsThis recipe is adapted from a book called 'Ferment pickle dry', I have made these many times, the recipe is very flexible and adaptable and can be made to suit your taste palate. These are as the book states a crossover between Japanese miso-pickling and European vinegar-pickling. You can eat them as an accompaniment to a cocktail, as part of a Asian inspired feast, an addition to salads or whenever you simply want salty, spicy, sweet, acidic umami party in the mouth and don't waste the liquid, it's great to use as a dressing.
