Gem’s Salmon with Rosemary Potatoes, Spinach and Cream Sauce

While we’re all at home, and probably have a bit more time to cook, I thought I’d share something a bit different. Lots of my friends are holed up with their partners, so why not cook up a date-worthy dish one evening? This recipe is a total dream: Juicy salmon, crispy potatoes, delicious cream sauce….

Homemade Hummus (and other delicious things on toast)

Life is better after a round of toast. Thick bread, charred almost to the point of burnt and slathered generously with butter, is one of life’s great pleasures. Being vegan this month means the butter is out, but I still wanted that feeling. So I turned my attention to hummus (lol was my attention ever…

Sumac Lamb Shoulder with Chickpeas, Aubergine and Mint

So I didn’t post a recipe this weekend….OH KNOW WHAT A DISASTER WHAT HAS FEEDING SPEEDY BEEN UP TO?? Just been roasting a lamb shoulder, @ottolenghi style… Honestly this is a dream recipe, about 5 minutes of prep work and the rest is taken care of in the oven. Heavenly soft meat and warming spices; perfect when…

Lemon Lime Pie with Tequila Cream and Lime Salt

A throwback to deliciousness. Inspired by the ritual of doing a tequila shot, this pie went down a STORM at my Mexican pop-up, so I thought I’d share the recipe. Now, it doesn’t necessarily count as a wholesome work prep lunch, but I figured you guys wouldn’t mind 😛 📷@pnzg@foodtryb Takes 30 minutes to prepare,…

Pork belly with Cider Sauce and butterbeans

This pork dish is a mash up of an old Jamie recipe and a long-standing face-off with a butterbean can that was at the back of the cupboard for a while. Mind-numbingly easy, yet packs an all-mighty punch (and the oven does most of the work anyway). 📷@julesandbean Takes 2 hours 15 mins, makes 4…

Baked Risotto with Asparagus, Peas and Mint

This weekend deserves a delicious summery recipe. I’m a big fan of risotto, but find I only cook it for a crowd so rarely eat it just for me. Risotto also risks not tasting great cooked in the traditional way if left for more than a day. Enter @rachelkballard, who has pointed me in the direction…

Fish Cakes with Smashed Peas and Horseradish Mayo

After a great fish class at Billingsgate last week, I had lots of white fish knocking around the fridge, waiting to be used up. Fish cakes were in my head, and an aimless wander around @tescofood unearthed some fresh horseradish root. Fish, peas, horseradish mayo; the perfect combination as the weather heats up. Takes 45 minutes, makes…

Sausage Ragu with Cheesy Polenta

It’s been a hectic week with work and prepping for this weekend’s pop-up fun! I’ve barely had time to think about food, so one evening this week I knew I needed something quick. A dinner of mainly store cupboard essentials turned into a winning dish that I will make again and again! When using during…

Nduja Tomato Rice

Ironically I wrote this recipe in the depths of Veganuary (perhaps my mind was working against me when faced with yet another chickpea-based meal). Nduja sausage is a new addition to this kitchen, and I’m getting used to its spicy warmth. This @ottolenghi inspired rice dish will blow the cobwebs away. Takes 40 mins, makes 4 work…

Sweet Potato Falafel Wrap

Big cooking day today and Veganuary still going strong! Inspired by a particularly tasty @leonrestaurants wrap I ate last week, here is a recipe for sweet potato falafel. I’ve teamed it this week with hummus, coriander and some kimchi I have knocking around and turned it into a wrap #fusion. Takes 50 mins, makes 4 work lunches INGREDIENTS…
