Chickpea and lentil stuffed aubergines – a tasty, healthy vegetarian meal that looks impressive but is really easy to make!

Aubergines are one of my favourite vegetables, as long as they are properly cooked of course; a spongy, undercooked aubergine is a sad thing indeed. These chickpea and lentil stuffed aubergines make great use of the vegetable for a meal that is not only delicious and easy to make but is healthy and looks very impressive too. (more…)

Well I certainly hope that my year doesn’t continue as it’s started – with a horrible cold! Here’s hoping that some healthy, nourishing meals like this sweet potato black bean chilli have me feeling better quickly. (more…)

It seems strange that this is the first risotto recipe that I have shared on here as I make it a lot and it is one of my favourite meals. As a vegetarian, risotto used to be ‘the’ (as in, the only) vegetarian option on most menus. Thankfully, the majority of restaurants have become a lot more accommodating towards vegetarians and vegans and the options are much more plentiful nowadays. The years of having risotto as pretty much my only choice when eating out haven’t put me off it however and I still eat it a lot at home, if not quite as often when eating out anymore. (more…)

And no, I’m not talking about cold leftover pizza! (more…)

Loaded Veggie Nachos

Loaded veggie nachos - topped with two kinds of beans, corn, salsa, guacamole, cheese and sour cream, this is the best way to eat a bag of chips for dinner!

Does anyone else struggle to return to normal life after they have been away somewhere? After being at a festival at the weekend we then had to drive for four hours to pick Ringo up from my parents house, then another four hours home and it has all completely wiped me out. I feel like I need to sleep for a week but I have so much that I need to be getting on with that that really isn’t an option! (more…)
