I may have mentioned once or twice that there’s a fair bit of ‘Greek’ in our house. It’s not all ouzo and plate smashing, but there is certainly always feta and lashings of olive oil. During the winter months we tend to eat a lot of comforting one pot wonders but as soon as the sun starts dancing again, we fall easily back in to our favourite eating habits. Mezze (shared plates). I love this style of eating; as the warmer season opens up to the change in produce it’s a lovely simple way to sample a little of everything....
I promised myself I wouldn’t reference the weather..but how can I not when the sun has been shining so brightly?! Now, I probably shouldn’t go too wild, but…It’s been so long since we’ve had a bbq in our little house, I feel we deserve a little Al Fresco loving! This week, from my magical box of goodies I’m going to make some smoked tofu and vegetable red cabbage rolls. If tofu isn’t your thing, you could sub in some pre roasted mushrooms or even some meat. (Chicken or Pork works well with this recipe) I think this is the perfect...
Spring is obviously trying very hard to present itself and I appreciate that, I really do, but it will have to do a little better if I am to stop making one pot warmers, soups and stews. Not that I mind, especially as I see Te Manaia organic fennel in my beautiful box of goodness this week. I know in a split second that I am going to make a Chicken and Fennel ‘Tagine’. I have all the time in the world to shave it/roast it/juice it..this week I want to slow cook it and revel in its sweet, aniseedy...
In all honesty, it doesn’t matter what The Petite Produce Fairies put in my box; I’m always delighted by the variety and the care that has gone into the compilation. Occasionally the contents favour a certain cuisine, which makes planning even easier. This week with all the greens, ginger, lime and coriander I can’t help but lean towards a few Asian style dishes. Before I arrange my vegetables, which is never the difficult part, I’ll have to organise some meaty numbers. I know I can whip up a yummy Teriyaki inspired marinade which will go with fish/chicken/pork/lamb/beef/mushrooms/eggplant..you name it! It’s...
Some days I just don’t want lots of washing up and when I’m fighting the urge to retire at 6pm with a jar of Fix and Fogg and a little light reading, only this one pot wonder can save me. Chicken with Chorizo, Chickpeas and Kale This easy, wholesome and super satisfying meal can be served as a rustic stew with a lovely thick wedge of Leeds Street Bakery Rosemary and Polenta bread or you could ‘pimp’ it up by serving it with some Zoes Garden Cauliflower 'Couscous' (Simply chop your cauli florets into smallish pieces and pulse in the...
