Video: Lasagna Soup

This week’s video recipe is something a little bit different: lasagna soup. We love soup so much we decided to make a few recipes based on bringing our favourite dishes to soup form, so there are going to be plenty more where this came from.

This dish brings everything we enjoy about lasagna to a soup. It also brings along everything we enjoy about soup to a lasagne, which is pretty neat. We started with a tomato base and included plenty of the vegetables and herbs that you might want to use in your lasagna, which was a good start – but still just a vegetable soup. So how to make it more lasagna? read more

Video: Cheat’s Healthy Cheese and Onion Pasties

Cheat's healthy cheese and onion pasties

These cheat’s healthy cheese and onion pasties are absolutely delicious, basically a modern marvel, and so much healthier than the real thing you won’t feel guilty about eating five. Intrigued? Wait until you hear how we do it.

The main problem with a pasty, AKA one of the most delicious foods you can buy on an average high street which is fully contained within its own wrapper, is the pastry. It’s full of calories, most of them contained in the braided crust alone. So what can you do about that? Well, the answer is to take the pastry away – and replace it with the far healthier tortilla.  read more

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

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

Video: Spinach and ricotta wraps

Spinach and ricotta wraps

We’re back with another new recipe! This week it’s our spinach and ricotta wraps, which we’ve spent a few weeks perfecting. It doesn’t hurt that the filling is so yummy, you might just want to eat it by itself.

This is of course based on the traditional spinach and ricotta cannelloni, though with our own take on things. I’ve personally never been a fan of the tomato sauce that is used as a based for the recipe. Instead, we’ve included our own nod to that by adding fresh cherry tomatoes to the filling, and letting the main sauce do all of the talking. read more
