Beetroot & Black Bean Burgers

Beetroot & Black Bean Burgers

We love eating by the seasons and seeing how the passing of the year brings a whole different array of food to our tables. Living in the heart of a city I particularly love the connection my local veg box gives me to the changing seasons, weather […]

Oat Flour, Apple Pancakes

Oat Flour, Apple Pancakes

Somehow January seems to have drifted into mid-February and it’s only just now, sitting down to write, that I’ve realised. Like the onset of that really fine rain that you don’t notice until you’ve been walking for twenty minutes and suddenly realise you’re soaked through. […]

Homemade Baked Beans & Hash Browns with Wilted Chard

Homemade Baked Beans & Hash Browns with Wilted Chard

I feel like I never get a chance to enjoy breakfast. I see all these pictures over on IG, mainly full of neatly stacked pancakes, perfectly positioned smoothie bowls and tasty looking porridge. I know this may sound slightly odd if you follow our account […]

Winter Vegetable Stir-fry

Winter Vegetable Stir-fry

Happy new year! I’m sure most of us are currently knee deep in resolutions, detoxes and all things puritanical or have you given in already? After all the Christmas indulging and the hope of a new year it’s understandable why we feel the need to start […]

Sage & Chestnut Patties with Parsnip Bacon

Sage & Chestnut Patties with Parsnip Bacon

We’ve been having a pretty relaxing few days, even cooking two Christmas dinners we’ve managed to stay calm (apart from when Mum poured cashew cheese over the Christmas pudding instead of cashew cream!). Whilst we’ve been enjoying lots of delicious festive food like these cheese […]

Chestnut Stuffed Squash

Chestnut Stuffed Squash

It’s easy to get overwhelmed thinking of all the things you need to do in the lead up to Christmas. Making gifts, buying gifts, wrapping gifts. Attending numerous Christmas parties, planning festive recipes, making, buying and wrapping even more gifts. So two weeks back, before […]

Warm Brussels Sprout & Pomegranate Salad

Warm Brussels Sprout & Pomegranate Salad

Two things, brussels sprouts and pomegranates. First the sprouts. Yes, that’s right, sprout season is here which means of course, it’s f-ing Christmas! Which I’m actually really excited about and am totally ready to embrace, even though it’s only November… but I need something, anything to […]

(Last of the) Winter Root Vegetable Tagine

(Last of the) Winter Root Vegetable Tagine

We may only just have stepped into March but it seems Spring really is upon us. Hayley’s post last week showed the first crocuses opening up to the warming sun and now the daffodils are just waiting burst into life. I certainly can’t deny the excitement […]

Cinnamon & Raisin, Gluten-free Pancakes

Cinnamon & Raisin, Gluten-free Pancakes

Just in case you hadn’t noticed last Tuesday was Shrove Tuesday, better known as Pancake Day! I have recently become pancake obsessed and love nothing more than having them at the weekend for breakfast or lunch, or dessert, or for a snack! Hah, told you, […]

Celeriac & Marinated Beetroot Salad

Celeriac & Marinated Beetroot Salad

It’s been so cold here lately that all I’ve been eating is soups and stews. It’s the kind of weather where even two pairs of gloves won’t keep your hands warm and your skin is constantly dry no matter how much shea butter you apply. […]
