Dairy-Free Amaretti Biscuits

Back when I was studying my Masters my bank balance was at an all time low and figuring out Christmas presents seemed like an impossible task. My cooking partner in crime E and I decided that we should make our gifts. This was one of those original recipes and has in fact remained a stalwart…

Spinach Salad w/ Toasted Spiced Pitta

With Christmas over and my jeans feeling much more snug than they once did it’s time to get eating some salads. But that doesn’t mean a bowl of bland greens that I have to pretend tastes good when really it’s just a bowl of crunchy water. I love middle eastern flavours. The sharp tangs of…

Pea & Bean Winter Salad

This recipe is one of those quick healthy suppers that you can knock together in 15 mins or less. It’s so easy to dress up or dress down depending on whether your stuffing your face in front of the TV or serving to guests. You can make it the star of the show or you…

Salt-Fried Pork w/ Garlic Stems & Chilli

I love garlic, I love pork, I love spice and I LOVE SZECHUAN FOOD!! Which puts this tangy, crunchy dish right up there. Most people think chinese food is difficult to cook or full of strange, hard to find, ingredients. But apart from the garlic stems, which are always in my local chinese supermarket, everything…

Octopus and Nduja Crushed Potato Salad

N and I have just come back from 2 weeks sailing the Adriatic and exploring Spain.  It was a fantastic late summer holiday and coming back to the cold and wet has been nothing less then traumatic! We used to wake up to morning swims and dolphins. Spending the day cruising coves and beaches. Then…

Super Fudgy Dairy-Free Brownies

Now anyone whose living dairy-free knows how heartbreaking it is when everyone else gets to tuck into a delish chewy fudgy brownie and you’re stuck eating either chalk or a brick. For some reason sweet treats are still a bit of a struggle and you often fall victim to broader free-from recipes.   People seem…

Buffalo Chicken Drumsticks (Dairy/Gluten Free)

I love buffalo chicken so much. I’ll happily chow down on a whole bucket of wings or drummers all by myself. No sharing. Just me, my chicken and my hot sauce. I’ve even been known to go in for a challenge or two. Being dairy-free can make finding a place to get that hot sticky…

Sweet Potato, Mango & Prawn Curry

I love this dish! It’s so easy to make and so warming with a gentle Thai spice and sweet tang of mango. What more could you want for a wet evening in than a bright bowl of comfort. You can have this by itself, swimming in some extra coconut milk, or with rice. I like…

Pasta Aglio e Olio Peperoncini 

Sometimes you need a quick dinner. One that’s full of carbs, ticks the protein box and hits that chilli tooth (you can have a sweet tooth which means you can also have a chilli tooth right?) This dish is the perfect fix for those moments. And what’s more it’s a store cupboard easy. Especially if…
