Mixed Bean Salad

Mixed Bean Salad

This nutrient dense, summery salad is a delicious accompaniment to a BBQ’d or griddled piece of meat, for a high protein meal, or if you wish to keep it vegetarian, it would be great with some griddled halloumi or cubed feta. If you prefer more carbohydrate […]

Smoked Coley Rice Salad

Smoked Coley Rice Salad

I have recently signed up to a monthly subscription from a company called Fishbox, which sends me a selection of sustainably caught fresh fish, that has already been prepared and filleted, each month. As a result I’m able to try a variety of new fish, as […]

Sausage & Broccoli Pasta

Sausage & Broccoli Pasta

I’ve recently discovered pasta made from red lentils or chickpeas instead of your usual wheat. They are gluten-free and also higher in protein and fibre, which make them a good healthy choice. If cooked correctly, they also I believe taste amazing, more like the same […]

Chicken, Lentil & Mango Curry

Chicken, Lentil & Mango Curry

This is a recipe I’ve been making for several years now. For the first little while I played around with it a lot to get it perfect, but now its pretty much set in stone. Its a really good balance of spicy and sweet. Its […]

Paneer & Cauliflower Curry

Paneer & Cauliflower Curry

Paneer is an Indian cheese with a similar texture to halloumi. Like cottage cheese, it is lower in fat compared to other cheeses due to the making process. Milk is curdled first, then the curds are separated from the whey and compressed in to a […]

Chicken, Parsnip & Carrot Curry

Chicken, Parsnip & Carrot Curry

Due to parsnips natural sweetness, I think it works really well in a curry. The contrast of sweet and spicy compliment each other really well and, for this recipe anyway, the different textures of crunchy carrot with softer parsnip add a slightly more interesting dimension to […]

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 […]

Meatballs in Tomato & Aubergine Sauce

Meatballs in Tomato & Aubergine Sauce

Aubergine lends itself brilliantly to a tomato-based sauce, when you cook it this way it softens and helps to thicken it. It also absorbs flavour really well so leads to a very tasty dish. I used meatballs but if you prefer you can use chicken […]

Roast Aubergine & Turkey Dahl

Roast Aubergine & Turkey Dahl

A dahl is basically a lentil soup. Its great for days like this one when I might have slightly over indulged at lunch and want a healthy and nutritious meal that doesn’t contain too many calories. It has plenty of spices, especially ginger which is […]

Mediterranean Fish Pasta

Mediterranean Fish Pasta

For this recipe I used hake, a white fish common in Spanish, Italian and Portuguese cuisine. I first came across it when on my first training camp in Majorca. Each night once we had finished dinner, the waiter would come round and ask us what […]

Harissa Spiced Aubergine & Eggs

Harissa Spiced Aubergine & Eggs

Sometimes its nice to have a break from eating meat for my protein source. Eggs and chickpeas are both good vegetarian sources of protein so this meal is still really balanced and nutritious even without the meat. It serves as a good reminder that vegetarian […]

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 […]
