Roast Bacon, Mushroom & Spinach Gnocchi

Roast Bacon, Mushroom & Spinach Gnocchi

Cooking gnocchi is notoriously difficult for someone who can’t see, as all cooking instructions state that gnocchi is ready when it floats to the surface of boiling water in a pan. This is not a practical instruction for someone who can’t see, as it is…

Beetroot, Spinach & Goats Cheese Risotto

Beetroot, Spinach & Goats Cheese Risotto

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…

Roast Coley with Green Lentils & Vegetables

Roast Coley with Green Lentils & Vegetables

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…

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…

Jamaican Chicken & Mango Curry

Jamaican Chicken & Mango Curry

I’m becoming obsessed with cooking chicken and mango together. The enzymes found in mango help to break down proteins and so result in the chicken being wonderfully tender and moist. Its surprising how many different meals I can sneak it in to. When making this,…

Turkey & Cauliflower Biryani

Turkey & Cauliflower Biryani

A biryani is a traditional Indian rice dish containing spices, meat and vegetables, cooked in a thick stock or gravy, over a low flame, for a long time. This recipe is definitely not a traditional recipe, but my speeded up and easy interpretation of the…

Smoked Salmon & Eggs on Potato Cakes

Smoked Salmon & Eggs on Potato Cakes

This recipe is brilliant for that slightly indulgent brunch or lunch dish, to enjoy when you are still wanting to get plenty of nutrition in to your body, while also providing it with a treat. Ideally you would poach the eggs properly so that they have…

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…

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…

Bacon & Cauliflower Pasta

Bacon & Cauliflower Pasta

This recipe involves a few more steps and washing up than my usual recipes, but it is simply yummy and although seems a little more complicated, actually very quick to make. It also has the added benefit of being healthy and delicious, but with a…

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…

Brazilian Prawn Stew

Brazilian Prawn Stew

When I went to Rio for the Paralympics, even though I was there for almost 3 weeks, I never got to really sample the typical Brazilian cuisine. The food provided for us in the Paralympic Village was very plain and basic and just served a…
