Barley Fish Paella

Barley Fish Paella

When making this dish I fully intended on using rice, however I had a blind moment and got my grains mixed up. Fortunately it was a happy accident as the resulting barley based paella was delicious. Barley is more nutty than rice, so had a 

Moroccan Bean & Chicken Caserole

This is a great recipe for using up any left over tinned beans. It can also be doubled, making it great for batch cooking as you can freeze it. If I know I have got a busy day the following day, I like to make 

Lentil, Spinach & Sweet Potato Dahl with Fish

Lentil, Spinach & Sweet Potato Dahl with Fish

A well cooked dahl is a wonderful thing. It is both comforting and nutritious, while also being fairly simple to make. The key is to ensure that the red lentils are cooked long enough that they soften and lose there shape. It is not a

This recipe I found on BBC Good Food and just put my own spin on it. I added an onion and a chilli for a little spice, while also serving it with a beef hache steak for some extra protein. The sun-dried tomatoes help to

This simple stew is packed full of smokey flavour, which is enhanced by the use of smoked hake. You could easily use any smoked white fish, such as coley or haddock if you prefer. Its a very warming bowl of nourishment that will also fill

This is the first time I have cooked with raw beetroot. I usually buy the pre-cooked versions for ease, but I saw this recipe on the Vitamix website and just had to try it. The problem with raw beetroot is that if you break the

Although I made this recipe with coley, any white fish would work just as well. Its an incredibly healthy and nutritious dish that is very simple to make. If capers are not to your taste, then simply leave them out, it will be tasty either

Yet again I met up with my parents the other day to be presented with a massive bag of home grown rainbow chard, along with several very squishy tomatoes, that I was told needed eating very soon. So I turned to google for recipe inspiration 

Creamy Cabbage & Prawn Barley One Pan

Another vegetable that my Dad has been growing in his allotment is cabbage and last week he presented me with one of the largest cabbages I’ve seen. This has resulted in me searching for inspiration on what to cook with it and here is one 

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 

Chicken & Spring Vegetable Risotto

Chicken & Spring Vegetable Risotto

I tried to be a little more adventurous and cheffy with this recipe by incorporating the woody ends of the asparagus in to the meal as well. This reduces waste, adds extra nutrition and intensifies the asparagus flavour. If you use fresh peas or broad
