Yes, now I can make soups for lunches! In the summer I’m all about salads, but now I’m all about staying warm, and soup is what I’m craving on these chillier autumnal days.
I’ve massively got into pumpkins and squashes over the last few years, especially with the different varieties you can now get in the shops and in your veg boxes. The one thing that I can simply not deal with is how difficult they are to cut up! I’ve got a good knife, and still I nearly give myself a hernia dealing with this nemesis veg! If you’ve not got a sharp knife, you seriously need to invest in one, because squash prepping life was definitely MUCH harder with a blunter cutting implement Recipes
I’ve got a treat for you this week in the shape of Squash stew and dumplings! This time of year we are surrounded by choice. So many of my favourite fruits and vegetables are in season; apples, pears, kale, cabbages, broccoli and pumpkins. Yes, we are now spoilt for choice with comforting, hearty foods that will warm us up on these cold rainy days. Soups, curries, and stews are my staples of the moment. Recipe
I know this is totally not seasonal and I’m not sure if anyone other than me is looking to make a lemon meringue pie at the moment but what can I say, I got inspired by the Bake Off! I was watching it the other week, and knowing the awesomeness that is Aquafaba (chickpea water), I just had to work out a way of getting the chickpea water into a meringuey gooey pie of dreams. And I did! And it was super easy! It didn’t quite crisp up as you’d expect an egg-based meringue too, but it delivered a sweet marshmallowey texture and with the contrast of the sharp tangy lemon it did the job! Recipe
Apologies for my long time absence. Things have been hectic over here mainly because I’ve been moving house. But, now things are starting to bear a semblance of normality, and I’m getting my butt back into blogging. How’s things with you guys, what have I missed? Recipe
