Some wild mushrooms are lovely in this dish if you can get them. I used a mixture of portobello, chestnut and shitake mushrooms, with a dry Marsala in the sauce. That's still quite sweet: if you'd like a touch more acidity use dry white wine or cider.
This pumpkin coconut curry contains all the warming elements you need to begin your seasonal hibernation. Each bite combines the infusion of turmeric, chilli, and pumpkin in the coconut sauce and then you add in the texture of fresh pomegranate seeds and toasted pumpkin seeds for extra colour and crunch. This makes for one delicious combination.
This delicious and nutritious pumpkin and lamb stew recipe can easily be made from the leftovers of your pumpkins. Meaning nothing goes to waste after you've finished carving.
While you can just easily sip this as a warm or cold tea or make a delicious hot cocoa with it, adding it as the liquid base to your smoothie gives you a great dose of the little fungi too! Paired with raw cacao and plant-based protein it becomes a wholesome smoothie to optimally support your body.
These look and taste naughty, but they are honestly not. All you need is Medjool dates, peanuts, peanut butter and dark chocolate or raw chocolate. Are you sold? Let's go!
Think of drinking wine under a vine-covered trellis and you'll probably be transported back to the heady romance of a holiday in Greece or Italy. I don't have so far to travel. I just go to Tufnell Park.
I'm a big believer that blueberries are one of the greatest fruits available, and they go super well with lemon. So, I thought I'd combine the two into a nice, summery pie to celebrate the end of my favourite season.
They are an eating apple, crisp, sweet and tart, and I wanted to make something that showcased their lovely red-flushed flesh. You can, though, make this with any good eating apple - it is a version of a classic French apple tart, but using puff in place of sweet dessert pastry.
Buckwheat has become popular due to its high amounts of minerals and antioxidants and it also has health benefits in that it improves blood sugar control. Buckwheat is neither a cereal grain nor related to the wheat family of flours, it has no connection with wheat whatsoever
I love the online food community and one of my most recent finds was Sous Chef website specialising in hard to find ingredients. I've brought a couple things on there, but what caught my eye with my most recent purchase was the seasoned cassava flour (farofa pronta in Portugese).
I thought I'd try out a recipe: a chicken and sweet potato hash with harissa and feta, just the sort of thing you might want to cook after a day wandering the stalls and watching the demos at the Maltings. Marinate the chicken the day before if you can.
This dish is delicious served either warm or room temperature. If your hosting a buffet style meal, its best to dress the salmon, when the salmon has completely cooled. I love to serve this dish in the middle of the table, with a large bowl filled with lettuce leaves
Anyway, however you get your nuts, cobnuts make a cracking crumble topping. And, handily, most hedgerow pickings make a cracking filling. See, Nature isn't always a cruel mistress.
These ... or a variation of them ... were what she served as dessert. They are smart little tarts, setting tangy bites of fresh fruit in a fruit conserve, within a crisp pastry shell. High Street bakery chains do something similar but not half as well.
When working with large oysters, that are too big to fit snugly in the palm of the hand, start by laying them on a cloth on the work surface with another cloth on top. (The curved shell should be underneath)
An Indian-inspired salad, this is simple but good. The toasted coconut complements the sweet, juicy carrots, the lemon juice and coriander add a citrusy balance. If you can make it with freshly-dug carrots, so much the better.
