Perfect!Cassoulet is a rich, slow-cooked casserole originating in the French region of Languedoc. It was a medieval peasant dish of […]

Last year I resolved to eat more protein from fish, quinoa and buckwheat. I managed plenty of fish but little quinoa and buckwheat.I really like buckwheat, but I only have one recipe that I regularly cook so far.

Moroccan Buckwheat and Chickpea Stew

This recipe is inspired by the Moroccan Chickpea Hotpot in Eastern Seaboard, Drogheda. I get it every time I go there.

Chickpeas are a great source of protein and complex carbohydrates for vegetarians. Falafel balls are great with a crunchy salad but can be eaten alone as […]

Carrot and Coriander Soup

This week I have for you, Carrot and Coriander soup! Friday last week I bought a huge bunch of carrots on my regular trip to Gregory’s Vegetable Stall at the market square. You can’t get much fresher than there. If you have a local farmers market it’s worth a visit for the quality. Everything is so delicious! […]

Roasted Ratatouille

I’m not ashamed to admit that the animated movie Ratatouille was what inspired me to make this dish for the first time. I’m so glad I did, I love finding recipes for vegetables I don’t usually eat weekly. In this case aubergine and somewhat the courgette and butternut squash. I always try to eat a variety […]
