Veggie bean chilli

The Teen has declared that she not only prefers this to a meaty chilli, but she also thinks it may well be in her top 10 favourite meals. So far we’ve eaten it with rice, baked potatoes, baked sweet potatoes, in a wrap like a burrito, and with tortilla chips to create nachos with all… Continue reading Veggie bean chilli

Sticky sesame cauliflower

This recipe is amazing – who knew that baked cauliflower could taste so amazing? Not me. But it does. The teen thinks that this is just as good as the Korean sesame chicken I’ve made before (there’s a recipe for that too on this very blog), plus this is baked, not fried. Yes please more… Continue reading Sticky sesame cauliflower

Green lasagne

I’m going to go out on a limb here and say that I think I might actually prefer this lasagne to the normal meaty version that I make, it’s really that yummy.

The rice is incredibly moreish and couldn’t be more straightforward, the thanks there go to my friend Heidy. Thanks Heidy!… Continue reading Cauliflower + chickpea curry with coconut rice

Courgette fritters (MĂĽcver)

We ate these A LOT when we were little. I think it was a) the way my parents got us to eat more veg and b) the best way to use up a glut of home grown courgettes. These two reasons are of course why I now make them for my family because it turns… Continue reading Courgette fritters (MĂĽcver)

Pasta with All The Veg

Chop chop chop bish bash bosh and it’s done. Easy mid-week dinner ahoy.
