Cabbage & Radish Stir-Fry with Mackerel

Cabbage & Radish Stir-Fry with Mackerel

Generally I eat radish raw, sliced up and added to salads. I wasn’t aware until recently that you can also cook them. They have been on special offer lately in Tesco, so i’ve been looking for inspiration on what to do with them. I came […]

Hoisin Cod with Crispy Omelette Cake

Hoisin Cod with Crispy Omelette Cake

Ok, so this might not be the prettiest of meals to look at, but its tasty and nutritious. Its also quick to make and a little different to your usual noodle stir-fry. Often fish fillets are quite small and so don’t contain enough protein for […]

Satay Style Prawn Noodles

Satay Style Prawn Noodles

As a child I used to say I hated peanut butter. I’m not sure I had ever actually really tried it. My mum isn’t a big fan and so we never really had it in the house. Now I eat it a lot. Spread on […]

Thai Chicken Curry & Rice One Pan

Thai Chicken Curry & Rice One Pan

Sometimes even the best of us have very little enthusiasm to cook. You might be tired, you might be stressed, your mind might just be on other things. Either way, when you are experiencing this you need a recipe for a meal that doesn’t take […]

Prawn, Pineapple & Sweet Potato Curry

Prawn, Pineapple & Sweet Potato Curry

When I made this I used green Thai curry paste, but in the past I have followed exactly the same recipe, but used Korma instead. Both flavours really compliment the dish so feel free to try either. Red Thai curry paste would also work and […]

Pineapple Fried Rice

Pineapple Fried Rice

Its not often I mix multiple protein sources in one meal, but a stir-fry rice is one. The beauty of this recipe is that you can do whatever you want really. Every time I make it there’s something different about it, but its so simple […]

Chicken, Aubergine & Tomato Curry

Chicken, Aubergine & Tomato Curry

Cooked aubergine is great in a curry, especially as it is native to Asia and so gives a curry some level of authenticity. In fact it was in a curry that I first tried aubergine when my tandem pilot at the time, Fiona Duncan, was […]

Chicken & Butternut Squash Tagine

Chicken & Butternut Squash Tagine

For this recipe I cheat a little and use a pre-made Moroccan Harissa spice mix. It’s basically a mixture of ground cumin, coriander, chilli powder and cinnamon, so if you can’t get hold of the mix then just use a combination of these. It will […]

Chicken, Pear & Butternut Korma

Chicken, Pear & Butternut Korma

As I mentioned in my last recipe, Tesco were selling pears cheap so I bought a bag. As I don’t particularly enjoy eating them whole, I’ve been looking for ideas to include them in savoury recipes instead. Fruit in savoury dishes is something people either […]

Roast Squash with Spicy Quinoa

Roast Squash with Spicy Quinoa

Quinoa is an incredibly nutritious grain that can be substituted for pasta or rice. What sets it apart from other grains is that it has an unusually high level of protein in it. Most plant based foods can not be classed as a complete protein, […]

Prawn & Vegetable Korma

Prawn & Vegetable Korma

Making my own curry paste is something I would like to try one day, but for now it is quicker and easier to buy and use ready made curry paste. It doesn’t stop me adding in extra spices, which I do quite happily to put […]

Green Thai Chicken Curry

Green Thai Chicken Curry

If you haven’t guessed by now, I like to put lots of herbs and spices in my cooking. Thai cuisine really lends itself to this. It is known as one of the healthiest cuisines because of the quantities of fresh herbs and spices that get […]
