Sweet Potato Falafel Pie with Rocket & Red Pepper Salad

Since I’ve been eating out the last couple of evenings I thought I’d post up one of our lunches, I made us a Falafel pie to see us through the last couple of days, it’s easy to make and keeps well in the fridge so ideal to cater for a couple of days lunches. You can team it up with a salad like us or make up a little quinoa or bulgur wheat to accompany it, up to you, or you could just have a massive slice of it on it’s own and have done with it!! Tonight is our […]

Stir Fried Broccoli with Wasabi, Ginger & Soy Marinade served with Noodles & Sesame Seeds

There is nothing more satisfying than feasting on a meal that took you half an hour to whip up and it tastes fantastic. Luckily everyone in the house just now loves spicy food and I had just a little wasabi left to use up and thought I’d use it in my sauce for this quick and easy dish. I ran out of Soba noodles so used some wheat noodles instead (I really would have preferred soba to be honest but it was a bank holiday yesterday and the shop I would have got it from was closed… I really should […]

Vegetable Tagine with Sun-Dried Tomato & Basil Polenta Cakes

It’s starting to get too warm to be cooking big dinners in the kitchen, but I didn’t mind standing over the stove last night to make this dish. The polenta cakes alone are just divine, you could just eat these as a snack, have them for lunch with some salad or just use as an accompaniment to many of your dishes! You’ll see what I mean when you make them and try them!!! I’ve had to carefully plan my recipes as our friend who’s staying with us isn’t too keen on mushrooms, raw tomatoes or raisins and I use a […]

Carrot & Orange Cupcakes with Walnut Topped Peanut Butter & Citrus Frosting

I’ve had such a lazy day today, even managed to sit in the sunshine for a bit and listen to some of the new Avicii tracks on my mp3, I must look a right sight with my feet bopping on the sun lounger! And, as it’s Sunday I thought I’d make the boys some sweet treats in the form of these lush carrot & orange cupcakes. You don’t actually have to make these into cupcakes, nor do you have to frost them if you don’t want to, you could add the mixture into a 7 or 8″ cake tin and […]

Sweet Potato & Kidney Bean Burrito with Guacamole & Chili Salsa

I fancied something a little spicy yesterday for tea and wanted to try something new, so decided to make my own chickpea flour (Gram flour) tortilla wraps. These are crazy easy to make and would work just as well as a lunch with lots of grilled veggies, or packed with some crushed chickpeas and avocado with some cherry tomatoes… why oh why don’t I have any of these things in when I want them… which is now! With these particular burritos you could also pack in some cooked brown basmati rice as well if you wanted to really fill it […]

Raw Almond Fudge Bites

These super tasty fudge bites are packed with goodies and taste, oh I don’t know how to describe them, delicious, fabulous, moreish! I made these while I was waiting on my cupcakes to bake in the oven, so they take practically no time at all to make and you just pop them in the freezer and take them out whenever you want one, just give it a couple of minutes to soften slightly. When I tried one, I did think that you could take it a step further, freeze it in a rectangular block, cut into bars and then coat […]
