Courgetti with meatballs might sound quite plain and it might not entice you into purchasing a Spiralizer for yourself, but chances are quite a few of you already own one and I'd seriously encourage you to try this recipe. It makes a plateful of soft, fresh courgetti that's lightly coated in sweet sundried tomato pesto and is dotted with tasty little balls of sausagemeat.
The crumble you take out of the oven has a crunchy, buttery topping that provides a delicious contrast to the sharp, but sweet pulped rhubarb that's thoroughly infused with the warmth of fresh ginger. It's a dessert which marries perfectly with a generous dollop of custard, a scoop of cold ice cream or a gulg of cold cream.
The lovely warmth of the fan oven is gently circulating around the kitchen and the scent of the corned beef and potato pie cooking is reassuring me that a good dinner will warm me up even further very soon. I'm going to serve it with steamed broccoli, thyme-infused carrots and a 'stick to your ribs as it goes down' rich beef gravy. And now I think of it, I'm sure there's some rhubarb and ginger crumble left in the freezer that we can have with warm custard. Shall I set ano...
If you can tolerate spelt or a small amount of gluten in your diet then I'd encourage you to give this breadmaker banana hazelnut bread a go because it's genuinely delicious. This recipe makes a loaf that's infused with the delicate flavour of fresh banana and is studded with crisp, crunchy little hazelnuts. It's lovely on its own, but I think it's elevated into something utterly divine when it's topped with a generous slathering of salted butter. You only live once, r...
This recipe makes a lovely creamy, substantial dahl that's well-spiced, but not hot, and is packed full of flavour. It's the perfect quick-to-cook, comforting vegetarian curry that's just waiting to be topped with freshly chopped coriander leaves and served to accompany soft, fluffy boiled rice and crispy shards of poppadums. My own mouth is watering just thinking about it!
This chocolate torte is a dream to both make and eat, particularly with a dollop of whipped cream or a scoop of good quality ice-cream. It's a torte that is decadent and luxurious, with a rich, but light cake base that delivers the perfect chocolate hit to the taste buds. Try making this one soon, guys, you won't regret it.
The soda bread produced by this recipe is soft, but substantial and is surrounded by a lovely golden crunchy crust, while its interior crumb is moist and has a faintly nutty flavour from the oat flour. It's practically begging to be sliced while still warm and coated in butter and generously topped with good quality jam.
These chocolate orange carrot muffins are gorgeous. They've got an incredibly soft and bouncy texture, are infused with rich, deep cocoa and have a lovely fresh zing from the orange zest. Their whipped chocolate orange buttercream frosting also does the entire flavour combination justice.
