Speedy Steak Stir Fry

You want a quick, tasty, healthy dinner, you could do much worse than a stir fry. Roasting the red peppers is genius, it really changes the flavour and makes this stir fry all the better for it. Lemongrass, I have never really thought about lemongrass before. I have used it in cooking, I enjoy the [...]

Shawarma Roasted Aubergine With Chickpeas, Mushrooms and Hazelnut Tomato Salsa

I made this for lunch and it was perfect. A little over 500 calories its not the lowest but having 4.5 of your 5 a day will surely pursuade you to inulge a little. I slightly over cooked the Aubergine but it didn't impact the flavour. The shawarma seasoning warmed you through without setting your [...]

Pan Fried Sea Bream with Saffron Mash and Tomato and Chorizo Salad

Easy, fresh and full of flavour. Bring the best out of your bream.

Goat’s Cheese Chicken

Super succulent chicken, stuffed with gorgeous goats cheese. What could be better? Well putting it on a bed of red cabbage sweetened with apple and topped with hazelnuts, for a start. I've never been a fan of goats cheese, I always thought it tasted a bit too.. well goaty. I'm sure some are more goaty [...]

Bangladeshi Lamb Biryani

An amazingly tasty and super easy Biryani. A few tweaks by the team at HelloFresh and it's now super easy. I loved this dish, there was so much flavour. I am sure using chunks of lamb rather than lamb mince would be more traditional and change the whole makeup of the dish. The mince though [...]

Thai Spiced Stargazer

This is a great meal, the stargazer is a fantastically flavourful fish. If you can't find it you could substitute it for monk fish. The other flavours are strong so you need a fish that can handle its own on the plate. In the wild the stargazer is an amazing fish that can be venomous [...]

Caramelised Halloumi with Minted Freekeh Pilaf and Roasted Red Pepper

Apart from in Cyprus where it originated the UK has apparently exceeded all other european countries in its consumption of Halloumi cheese. It's not hard to understand why. This is my second favourite cheese behind the mighty cheddar. Actually joint second with Feta, I do love a bit of Feta... and mozzarella you can't beat [...]

Minted Lamb and Feta Burgers With a Crunchy Salad

Normally when I want a burger I want cheddar cheese, blue cheese, bacon, black pudding, burger sauce, mayo, ketchup, mustard, cooked onion, raw onion, onion rings,  lettuce, rocket and any other accompaniment you could think of, not all at once obviously although I wouldn't say no to trying that. So when I looked at this recipe I wasn't expecting much. A [...]

Beef Meatball Goulash With Rice

Originating from medieval Hungary, Goulash is a deep, rich, belter of a dish. Back in the 9th century goulash was eaten by Hungarian shepherds. They would take cooked, seasoned meat and dry it in the sun to preserve it. Then they would store it in bags made from sheep stomachs. When they wanted to eat [...]

Grilled Chicken With Saffron Spiced Freekeh and Zahtar Dressing

This dish received a lot of hype before I cooked it, it looks and sounds like it was going to be packed with flavour. However, it wasn't the case. I really enjoyed it and would happily recommend it. My wife and brother on the other hand were left underwhelmed. By the time I plated this up I [...]
