Curiously Confusing Jamaican Chickpea Curry with Perky Paneer Cheese and Silky Spinach

This is one hell of a confused dish. A fusion of nationalities perfectly blended together, sometimes some of the best dishes come out of mistakes and adaptation. Can be served as the main meal with breads or rice or as a side dish to accompany your favourite curry. This Gluten-free vegetarian/vegan dish (if you remove…… Continue reading Curiously Confusing Jamaican Chickpea Curry with Perky Paneer Cheese and Silky Spinach

Sassy Seafood Stew with Mighty Moroccan Spices

This started off as one of Jamie Oliver’s 15 minute meals recipes but after 1.5 hours trying to get something that didn’t taste like a can of tomato soup we came up with this which actually turned out pretty tasty.  Don’t get me wrong, I love Jamie but his recipe just didn’t do it for…… Continue reading Sassy Seafood Stew with Mighty Moroccan Spices

Mighty Moroccan Mega Lamb Burgers

This is my take on one of Tom Kerridge’s recipes from his diet series.  They are light, gluten free if you need them to be, lower in fat and calories with the clever use of extra vegetables and lean meat but no compromise on flavour.  Great way of sneeking in a bit of extra veg…… Continue reading Mighty Moroccan Mega Lamb Burgers

Sumptuously Show Stopping Stuffed Squid Asian Style

  I have to say this one is very much a joint effort with Stella as she had previously done something similar a few weeks ago. In fact it’s the first time I’ve ever tackled a dish like this as I always thought it would be too much like hard work but as long as…… Continue reading Sumptuously Show Stopping Stuffed Squid Asian Style

DANGEROUSLY DECADENT DARK CHOCOLATE AND SALTED CARAMEL GOOEY MELTING POTS

  These truly delicious.  They can be done in the microwave for approx 45-50 seconds or 6 minutes in the oven.  Light and fluffy on the outside and ridiculously rich and runny inside.  OK so I can’t really offer you a healthier twist other than potentially reducing the sugar with some kind of baking sweetener…… Continue reading DANGEROUSLY DECADENT DARK CHOCOLATE AND SALTED CARAMEL GOOEY MELTING POTS

MIGHTY MACKEREL AND RAVING RHUBARB, SPINACH, WATERCRESS AND HAZELNUT SALAD

After eating this I reckon you could give Popeye a run through his money in a fight. It’s so packed with nutrients and the combination tastes great. Rhubarb seems to be in season now so grab it while you can INGREDIENTS 1 ready cooked smoked mackerel fillet. 2 large handfuls of fresh spinach. A large…… Continue reading MIGHTY MACKEREL AND RAVING RHUBARB, SPINACH, WATERCRESS AND HAZELNUT SALAD
