These are a new favourite in our house at the moment! Cauliflower is fast becoming one of the most fashionable foods of 2017. Whether you are making this into soup, rice or baking it whole, this vegetable is cropping up everywhere and it's perfect in this recipe. Delicately spiced and roasted and packed into tacos or tortillas with lots of veggies and a drizzle of sriracha mayonnaise. Perfect food for the family to assemble together!
There are certain meat free dishes that an everyday meat eater would struggle to eat. This is not one of them. This recipe for aubergine parmigiana is a wonderful alternative to a traditional beef lasagna - made up of layers of charred aubergine and parmesan cheese, cooked in a rich tomato ragu and topped off with bubbling and golden cheese. It is a substantial, delicious, entirely comforting family dish, perfect served up alongside garlic bread and a crisp salad.
There is definitely something magical about making fresh pasta. Its easy, enjoyable and very therapeutic (and you get to eat the fruits of your labour). Don't get me wrong, I buy as much dried pasta as the next person to ensure simple and straightforward suppers through the week but if you have a lazy weekend and want to make something a little more special, I recommend you give this recipe a try. It's not a difficult thing to make, rather, it is a more time consuming process. Still, once you've made your own pasta once, I guarantee you'll want to do it more often - and believe me, its worth it!
It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas and with the temperature cooling and the nights drawing in, I can't help but crave some comfort food. This dish is not a traditional carbonara - in fact, there isn't an egg or a lardon in sight. Instead this is a creamy, rich and tasty veggie alternative that warms the soul aswell as the tummy - the carbonara name fits (shhh don't tell the purists). It's made quickly and simply and is the perfect thing to eat cosied up on the sofa in your pjs.
