Skillet Spinach Ricotta Lasagne Roll-Ups

The Italians would be furious. ‘Why modify a perfectly good lasagne recipe?’, you posit as you read the recipe title. ‘Why mess with perfection?’, you ponder as you scroll through this post. ‘What were you hoping to achieve with this?’, you ask confusedly as the concept just doesn’t sit right with you. You once again…

Rustic Countryside Goat Cheese, Mushroom & Kale Galette

If this recipe were a mood, it would be sitting on a patio on a modest farm in the South of France, gazing across at the stretches of rolling countryside, your nostrils filled with the sweet mixture of garlic and fruity white wine as you tuck into this light and refreshing dinner. I’d imagine that…

Moroccan M’hanncha, Spiced Vegetables in a Pastry Casing

This looks a lot more complicated than it actually is. If there is ever a dish that I have struggled to photograph: it is this one right here. From the disasters I had rolling up pastry to the dilemma of how to make a blob of pastry look pretty: I’ve been through it all. The…

Roasted Vegetable Sheetpan Shawarma with Spinach Hummus

I first came across the concept on The Kitchn and stopped in my tracks to try it. The only cheese I had in…

Herby Halloumi Heirloom Tomato Bake

If you don’t follow me on Instagram, firstly hop to it my username is @lifeisohsodandy! Secondly, you wouldn’t know about our chickens. Yes, we have chickens. You may have seen the…

Crispy Curry Vegan Potato Pancakes

Because savoury pancakes beat sweet pancakes any day. As much as I will always be a sweet tooth at heart, coriander beats chocolate in my book. Whilst we’re on the topic, what do you think about chilli infused chocolate? Is it the best of both worlds or an utter hit and miss? This is a…

Broccoli & Lentil Curry

I honestly cannot understand people who hate broccoli. Now hold on- give the poor vegetable a chance! Broccoli has been unfairly lumped with the most hated vegetables, amongst brussel sprouts, cauliflower and beetroot. All of these vegetables have redeemable qualities; except you beetroot, you’re absolutely hopeless. I find that the reason why people hate these…
