Kedgeree

Kedgeree

Surprisingly, as it usually consists of rice, smoked fish, boiled eggs and curry spices, kedgeree is traditionally served at breakfast time. It has origins in both British and Indian cuisine. I must admit it doesn’t really appeal to me for breakfast, but I do love…

Bacon, Mushroom & Chard Pasta

Bacon, Mushroom & Chard Pasta

This is the first time i’ve ever cooked and eaten chard. The leaves are very much like spinach and the stems remind me of celery. They are very different and so require different lengths of cooking time. It is very nutritious and suits a simple…

Bacon, Vegetable & Barley Pot

Bacon, Vegetable & Barley Pot

This is a great recipe for using up any leftover vegetables. This time I used broad beans, courgette and mushrooms, but your choice is flexible. Peas, spinach, carrot, anything really would work. It is also freezable, which means its great for planning ahead or for…

Turkey Jambalaya

Turkey Jambalaya

Jambalaya is a Creole/Cajun one pan rice dish, very similar to the Spanish paella, that is designed as a cheap, but wholesome dish to use up any leftovers. This time I made it with turkey, but it can be made with chicken, chorizo, prawns or…

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…

Making an Omelette

Making an Omelette

A while back now, when talking about using the grill, I briefly mentioned that I’m not very good at making omelettes the conventional way in a frying pan and so use the grill to finish them off cooking. I thought it would be a good…

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…

Italian Chicken & Bacon Rice Bake

Italian Chicken & Bacon Rice Bake

What is not to like about this bowl of comforting flavour? It’s such a simple meal that is easy to eat if your feeling a little delicate or under the weather. It’s also easy to make, as once everything is added in to the casserole…

Simple Pasta Bolognese

Simple Pasta Bolognese

Bolognese is a meal that is so comforting. It makes me think of home, feel relaxed and safe. When I get to choose what meal I eat the night before a race, or even if I’m racing late in the evening then for my lunch…

Mushroom, Kale & Squash Risotto

Mushroom, Kale & Squash Risotto

A hearty enough meal to be served on it’s own, especially if you are a vegetarian. If you eat cheese, then chunks of goats cheese, feta or parmesan are great added at the end of the cooking process, just before serving. When I make this…

Chorizo Kale Stew

Chorizo Kale Stew

Broth, soup, stew, whatever its technical name is I’m not sure. What I am sure of though, is that this is a comforting bowl of yumminess that can be ready to eat in just over half an hour. Roasting the sweet potatoes separately allows them…

Chicken, Mushroom & Kale Pilaf

Chicken, Mushroom & Kale Pilaf

This is such a quick and simple meal to both make and eat. Its great for if you are entertaining guests, as you can easily double or even triple the quantities and there is very little not to like about it, for even the pickiest…
