A slow cooked vegan vegetable stew using all the odds and ends from the late autumn plot. Mushroom dumplings complement this already rich and flavoursome dish.
A delicious summer green soup using seasonal vegetables and enhanced with parsley and almond pesto. It’s a good one for using up any garden gluts or produce that’s been lurking in the fridge for a bit too long. There’s plenty going on flavour wise and it’s substantial enough to be the main meal of the day.
An easy vegetarian savoury pudding flavoured with leeks and cheese which is just as good (if not better) than its sweet counterpart. If you’ve not tried this cheese and leek bread pudding recipe from Cranks, you’re definitely missing out.
French toast for breakfast is a bit of a classic, but have you tried Nutella French toast yet? It’s an indulgent way to break your fast for sure, but it’s oh so satisfying. Why not treat yourself this weekend?
Orange flavoured sponge cakes with a note of cardamom, dyed pink with beetroot water and a surprise blob of plum jam in the middle. They’re topped with a creamy white chocolate and shocking pink beetroot icing. I’ve called them beetroot and orange cupcakes, not so much for the flavour, but for the colour.
A versatile and tasty veggie burger with a good grating of chocolate to give extra richness and flavour. Although quick and cheap to make, these chocolate bean burgers contain egg so are not suitable for vegans.
A quick and simple recipe to get something sweet and delicious onto the teatime table in record time. These jammy flapjacks contain only three ingredients and can be gluten-free if you use the right oats. For extra pizazz you can drizzle some chocolate over the top if you like.
A creamy but light and not overly sweet no churn choc-chip ice-cream flavoured with vanilla and a hint of mint. Ideal for using up all those leftover bits of Easter chocolate. Serve this leftover Easter egg chocolate ice cream with chocolate sauce if desired.
Do you ever have an annoying bit of mincemeat left in the bottom of the jar post Christmas? These leftover mincemeat buns provide a solution. They’re quick and easy to make and are really tasty too. In fact, many will argue they are nicer than mince pies.
