I’m currently learning Korean, so we’ve been getting stuck in to some tasty Korean food too – and doenjang jjigae (된장찌개) had to be on the list. Doenjang is soy bean paste, which has a range of delicious uses. Jjigae is a stew, so when you put them together, doenjang jjigae is a soy bean paste stew.
This week we decided to go for a recipe inspired by our time in France in 2015. We so enjoyed going around different small restaurants and trying what was on the menu, and galettes were one of our highlights. That’s why we set about making our own!
This week we’ve got a lovely recipe with a bit of a twist! We love a good quiche but the pastry is just too fattening. In a bid to make it more healthy, the open quiche is rapidly becoming one of our go-to meals. This one is particularly interesting because of the inclusion of the apple. Paired up with strong cheddar and some Quorn vegetarian bacon, it’s a great choice for an autumn dish.
This little recipe is so amazing, and I can’t tell you how much we loved eating it. We LOVE Mexican food anyway, so these Mexican muffins were definitely an idea we wanted to pursue. We had them for lunch, but you could easily make this a breakfast item or even serve it as part of a bigger meal at dinner.
Recently we decided it was time to do the proper Sunday lunch thing. Let’s have a traditional veggie nut loaf, we thought – something to enjoy with roast veggies and mash! I tracked down this amazing recipe, which was so easy to make and so, so rewarding. Give it a try if you are after that classic Sunday dinner that is going to last you days and days!
Hi all! Now, if you only follow us here on the blog, you most likely already know that we usually post Vine videos on Mondays. What you may have seen is that every now and then there’s no post on a Monday – usually when the Vine doesn’t require a recipe to go along with it. In order to keep you all up to date, this is a quick Vine round up of some of the delicious clips we’ve posted lately that didn’t quite make it onto the blog. Most of them are pretty self-explanatory, which is why we didn’t do recipe posts for these – but if you have any particular questions, please feel free to leave a comment and ask away. In the meantime, feast your eyes…
This little dish has become a serious favourite of ours since we first tried it a month or so ago. It’s become our go-to late-night, long-day, nothing-in-the-cupboards meal. It’s delicious, it’s filling, it’s moreish, and it’s also really very healthy. When you look at it that way, I’m not sure why we don’t eat shakshuka every day of the week.
Having tried out the Mexican veggie burger recipe of my own devising previously, I wanted to try something new. This time I put together some ingredients which I thought may be helpful, and which are our favourites from the cupboard in terms of taste. It was more a case of experimenting than having something particular in mind. I have been working on plans for possibly the best veggie burger of all time, but that will wait until later! At the moment I’m trying to perfect the technique as well as working on flavours. The recipe made six burgers, although they were very generously sized. If you wanted them to fit neatly into the average burger bun, you could most likely halve them and make twelve.
Here’s a review of something that I ate last year, but often enough that I can still review it… something that really was very special, and that I miss a lot since having moved out of the St Albans area. The Breakfast Club can be found on Stanhope Road just past the main train station, so it is definitely worth a visit if you are going to be in the area, even for a short period of time.
