Turmeric Spiked Savoury Porridge

Over the summer I visited 26 Grains in Covent Garden and tried a bowl of savoury porridge - though it seemed strange when the oats arrived with sautéed kale and an egg perched on top, it was delicious. And why wouldn't it be?  We eat rice as a sweet or savoury dish, and in many cusines, pasta and other grains are … Continue reading Turmeric Spiked Savoury Porridge

Fennel, Cabbage & Orange Salad

This is one of those throw it all together salads that was inspired by my weekly veg box  when I had a head of cabbage and fennel that needed using .

Frittata is a one pan meal that is simple to prepare, tastes great, looks beautiful and works with just about any cheese and vegetables … Continue reading Green Vegetable Frittata

Homemade Oatcakes

I love oatcakes - I must go through a pack a week. A great portable snack, oatcakes are rich in fibre which means slow release energy. Teamed with a protein rich food (think cottage cheese,  a chunk of salmon or boiled egg) or a splodge of peanut or almond butter they stave off hunger for a few hours, plus they're a lifesaver if … Continue reading Homemade Oatcakes
