  • Cauliflower, pine nuts, salsa verde

    Cauliflower, pine nuts, salsa verde

    I made a cauliflower dish for lunch the other day. It was roasting in the oven, the salsa verde was patiently resting, the pine nuts were on the right side of toasted, when I looked in the fridge to see what else I could grab for us to eat alongside. Aside from a wedge of […]

  • Vegetable and pearl barley soup

    Vegetable and pearl barley soup

    January is a month of slurping soups. There are thick parsnip and apple soups, practically white with cream and a brightness of flavour that makes you suddenly sit up and eat your lunch more alertly than usual. A butternut squash soup drizzled with turmeric yoghurt, in an attempt to coerce flavour into this despondent vegetable […]

  • What to eat this January

    What to eat this January

    We’re back at that time of year! After Christmas, I often feel like a lump of lard. December is a reckless month for eating, one that I fully support of course, but it’s really no wonder the hashtag idiom #newyearnewme popped up a few years ago. With the fresh new year facing us, and our […]

    #newyearnewme: Spiced carrots with couscous and preserved lemon

    Cooking vegan meals is more fulfilling than I thought. This is a statement I never thought I’d say. If you are a reader of this food-obsessed blog you will already know it’s unlikely I have partaken in this month’s Veganuary, especially as my last post described my recent meat spree in graphic and visceral detail, […]

  • Spring clean

    Spring clean

    Spring is here and along with it steady downpours, heavy clouds which drift lethargically carrying their immense weight across the sky, beautiful sunsets, and the ongoing roar of cars around and around the roundabout (christened ‘The Roundabout of Death’) on which I live. In a hotblooded display of manliness Calum ripped down the bent and dusty metal […]
