Today I've made two comfort dishes; this corn chowder and my mouthwatering Molokhia. I feel incredibly guilty when I say "my xxx" especially when they're traditional dishes, or dishes that have been cooked for years and years. But I get protective and take ownership wh...

ready for an overindulgent chocolate & coconut porridge with caramelised bananas to start (or end?) the day?

You can edit the sweetness and go crazy on the toppings and it's still going to be relatively healthy!! Maple syrup and fruit are your sweeteners, the caramelisa...

I have a problem with throwing things out. I'm actually not alone in our household, my husband is far worse than I am. It's for this reason our fridge is often a complicated game of Jenga where occasionally a block pulled out has been lost and forgotten for so long it...

Fatteh dishes were born from the waste not mind. Fresh Arabic bread goes stale by the end of the day but instead of throwing out what hadn't been eaten people started breaking it up, covering it in olive oil and cooking the pieces until they were delicious crunchy piec...

Now, I don't think this summer herby dish is new to many people but I think it often conjures up an image of way too many bitty herbs that get stuck in your mouth and generally is more work than salad ought to be.

I'm not quite sure how to express how much love I have for this soup. I'm not normally a fan of pumpkin soup but the whole bulb of roasted garlic and the roasted red onion bring this soup up to a whole new level of richness. I think it would make an incredible amuse bo...

Let's just agree that salads just aren't enough most of the time? Man cannot live on leaves alone (well, he probably could for a while) But salads can be absolutely delicious when made well and with a bit of creativity. We need to be thinking of adjectives like fresh,...

OK, now I may well be slammed here for taking possibly the most traditional and nostalgic (and most delicious) of Ramadan snacks - sambousek - and giving it an unnecessary healthy, vegan edit. But, I'm here doing it BECAUSE I can no longer enjoy the cheesy, gooey delig...

This months posts are dedicated to those fasting during the month of Ramadan. Therefore, the focus of each dish is to be nutritious, gentle on the stomach and reasonably easy/quick to make. Today's recipe also has the benefit of being quite traditional.
