quick houmus flatbread

This is barely a recipe but as it is something that I make almost every week I wanted to share it. It is so quick and healthy and gets 2 of the 7 a day into whoever is eating it, along with a good dose of protein, good fat and healthy carbs. On nights or

lentil houmus

easy lentil houmus

I have another houmus (or hummus, houmous, or humus) recipe that I love. So I was dubious about this lentil houmus recipe but curious too. It uses lentils rather than chickpeas which makes it super creamy and higher protein (15g per serving). Totally delicious, easy peasy to make and a great lunch or snack for kids

beetroot cannellini dip

beetroot, cannellini, basil and sherry vinegar dip

I made a quick batch of this beetroot cannellini dip as part of a nibbly platter for my students last week. I’d been jonesing for these flavours since I had the Marks and Spencer version of this beetroot and bean dip at Christmas. Not only is this dip fabulously purple, it tastes amazing, can be

I talk more about the principle of flavour and texture balancing here.  One of my favourite ways to add crunch is to add some toasted nuts or seeds to my meals. Homemade dukkah is

red pepper houmous

you say hummus, I say red pepper store cupboard houmous

I know I’m not alone in my love of houmous (yes that’s how we spell it in England). I was a late starter though. I managed to get through the first 18 years of my life without encountering it, which is odd given it has become such a popular kids’ food now. That first batch

healthy chicken Kiev. You can take the girl out of the ’80s…

I did much of my early experimentation with food in the eighties – Monster Munch,  Crispy Pancakes and Angel Delight. There wasn’t quite the understanding then about the nasties lurking in processed food. Luckily my Mum was an amazing cook so those foods in a box were infrequent treats. She busied herself with expanding our
