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….

Chicken Pinto Bean Stew

My first Stateside recipe! 🇺🇲🇺🇲 After a great gym workout the other evening (thanks @crunchfitnesss) I wandered into @traderjoes, an oasis of calm…. lol jks it was #coronavirus fuelled chaos in there. I managed to scramble together a couple of bits, queue for an age, and return to the flat, gleeful for an evening of cooking ahead. On the…

Spicy Tomato Chicken Thighs with Polenta Chips

A bag of cornmeal has been staring out at me from the back of the cupboard; silently mocking me for its lack of use (it was the star of my NOLA pop-up cornbread, but not used since). But no more. Polenta chips (baked, not fried) are a delicious, lighter alternative to potato, and a real…

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…

Miso Aubergine with Veggie Stir-fried Rice

I’m a big fan of miso aubergine! It feels like it’s popping up on menus everywhere at the minute, so I thought I’d have a go myself (spoiler alert, it’s unbelievably easy to do). The trick I found was to add some water to the baking tray, which steams the aubergine so it softens up…

Pulled Pork Sweet Potato Skins

I’m feeling the post-holiday blues 🙄, so made some potato skins to cheer myself up (obviously, I mean who doesn’t love potato skins?). The combo of sweet potato and spicy pork is 👌, and probably a bit healthier than the typical gut-busting cheese and bacon classic version. Serve with a side salad for a great…

Masala Roast Cod with Gunpowder Potatoes

I’m in India woop woop! I’m here for a friend’s wedding (#survi2019) but have been roaming around Delhi, Agra and Jaipur this past week. What a trip; I’ve barely scratched the surface and it’s an incredible country. Needless to say I’m eating lots of delicious things too 🤗. Inspired by my travels, and because I’ve…

Slow cooked Pork Stew with Cider Beans and Spinach

On a rainy Sunday like today, there are few things more comforting than a bowl of stew 🍲. I had some leftover pork shoulder in the freezer that needed using up, so I bought some cider and had a play with what was in the fridge and cupboard. He resulting stew is deeply satisfying, and…

Veggie Moussaka

Moussaka, that gloriously beefy Greek dish, gets a veg makeover. The mix of lentils and ground walnuts is incredible; you’ll be convinced you’re eating regular mince! I swap out the faff of making a white sauce too for a yoghurty cheese mix; a bit rogue but it worked a treat. This dish is an experiment…

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…
