Yes, you read that right – red cabbage curry. It started out as a random idea but it turned out more delicious and delicate and aromatic than I thought it could be…

Do you ever find yourself making the same dish over and over again? In the same week? It doesn’t happen often, but sometimes you make something that’s just exactly what you want to eat and you could just eat it over and over and over… Well, this was that something for me last week. So I thought I best share the recipe in case it might be that something for someone else.

We are back online – apologies for the light posting recently but normal services can now resume! We have moved into a new flat and the kitchen is kick ass so I have no excuse not to cook up lots of lovely food. It’s got quite a nice electric stove, loads and loads of drawers and cabinets for all my gadgets and even a big island / breakfast bar – perfect for rolling out pastry yay. I should not be this excited about a kitchen but I totally am.

And to celebrate here’s one of the first meals I made in said fabulous new kitchen… tagine (more…)

This dish made me think of Masterchef for some reason – you know when they’re talking about the contestants and they say “that guy really knows how to get flavour into his food”? I always remember them saying that and kinda thinking – what does that actually mean?? But that’s basically all that happens in Masterchef, a bit of cooking and lots of nonsense comments and Gregg making those “oooooer” noises while scarfing a dessert…

In any case that is what I’ve tried to do with this chilli recipe – get lots of flavour into it. Because if I’m honest, I often find vegetarian chilli a bit bland and disappointing. But I had a really nice one the other day and it inspired me to try again and see if I could create a chilli I can be a bit more excited about. This is that chilli and it is pretty damn tasty…

Broccoli has always been one of my favourite veggies. Before I got my vegetables via a box scheme delivery service (like an American CSA), I would buy it religiously every week. And then I didn’t eat any for ages – I guess I got a bit distracted by all the other vegetables I was discovering and I just forgot about good ole broccoli. But these are the recipes that remind me why I will always go back to where my love for vegetables began…

I may be vegetarian but I am not a fan of fake meat. I’ve always thought it was a bit of a boring cop-out. Whenever I see those gray, chewy fake chicken pieces I can’t help but wonder why you wouldn’t just use something natural and tasty like mushrooms instead! When there are so many delicious ways to cook vegetables I honestly find I rarely miss eating meat.

But I’m from New Jersey and I grew up eating the kind of decent Italian food you rarely find on this side of the Atlantic. A good spaghetti and meatballs is the perfect comfort dish for cold winter nights. My photography doesn’t really do it justice but I promise my recipe is much more moist than anything made with veggie mince!
