Video: Savoury Pancakes with Cheesy Beans

Savoury pancakes with cheesy beans

Everybody loves pancakes, right? For some reason this week we just craved some savoury pancakes. It didn’t take long before a recipe came to mind, and these cheesy bean monsters were born. 

They are an absolute joy to behold, and pretty easy to make, too. It would be pretty easy to make these vegan – just choose vegan cheese – or gluten free – with an alternative type of flour. They’re very versatile and honestly won’t take long to get the hang of. And no, you don’t have to flip them in the air if you’re not feeling brave enough! read more

Quorn Fishless Fingers

Quorn fishless fingers

This is a review I have almost been dreading, because these Quorn fishless fingers were honestly one of the worst things I have ever eaten. I don’t know who came up with these, but they are completely grim on all levels. 

Apparently, I’m not the only one who thinks so, as several fellow vegetarians have commented the same to me. The thing is, most people who turn vegetarian really aren’t interested in fish. It seems that those who are remain pescatarian, for the most part at least. Fish is that thing you hold your breath while you walk past in the supermarket. It’s something other people eat. It’s gross and stinky. read more

When we found these little tortilla bowls in the supermarket, we decided they were perfect for turning our usual Mexican bowls into something a little more jaunty. We came up with these Mexican tortilla boats, based on the shape of the bowls and what they brought to mind! read more

Gnocchi and sausage bake

Have we gone a bit ricotta mad? Maybe so, but with good reason. It’s back this week as an ingredient in our cheesy gnocchi and sausage bake, which is a great take on our favourite type of pasta.

You can make your own gnocchi using our recipe, but if you’re feeling lazy, you can just buy a pack from the supermarket to get you started. We won’t judge – we did the same when preparing this dish. read more

Asda Roasted Root Veg & Smoked Cheddar Bakes

Asda gravy burgers

It’s time to dip into our freezer section once again, with these gravy burgers which came from Asda. Their full name is the rather wordy Roasted Root Veg & Smoked Cheddar Bakes with Caramelised Onion Gravy. It’s always fun to try something new, and these definitely appealed, though long-time readers may know I’ve been somewhat disappointed with sauce accompaniments in the past. read more

Video: Sharaf Burger Mix

Sharaf Burger Mix

Our last video was about the Sharaf falafel mix, and we couldn’t just try one. We came home with the Sharaf burger mix as well, so we could try it out and see how their stuff fares in larger sizes!

There’s no magic secret here – the mix is essentially the same, with different flavouring. The difference between making burgers and falafels is just the size that you shape them into when you are preparing them! This was just as easy to do as the falafels – if not easier, since I didn’t have to make quite as many pieces for it to work! read more

It’s time for a recipe round-up again! Today, we’re going cook with carrots. They’re a versatile veggie with lots of uses, whether cooked or raw.  Here’s 10 recipes using them for you to try!

1. Carrot and Coriander Soup

This soup is full of flavour – the carrot and coriander are both pretty strong, and you can definitely sweeten it up with a bit of maple syrup if you want some extra punch. We served it up with a dollop of creme fraiche and a few rocket leaves on top for a little zing.  read more
