Chorizo, Chilli & Chickpea Casserole

I hope everyone is currently enjoying the festive period. Things have been a bit hectic at Recipe Tests Towers over the past week but here’s a lovely warming stew that you can have rustled up in no time – well, about half an hour. I took the recipe from a book I was given for … Continue reading

Vietnamese Chicken Salad

On Sunday we had Roast Chicken and that means leftovers. I imagine there’s going to be a lot of cooked poultry knocking about over the next week or two and I can easily see this recipe working just as well with turkey. It’s not your usual winter dish but it’s a nice change and if anyone … Continue reading

Baked Eggs with Spinach, Tomatoes & Garlic

Instead of England’s early Sunday dinner, a postchurch ordeal of heavy meats and savory pies, why not a new meal, served around noon, that starts with tea or coffee, marmalade and other breakfast fixtures before moving along to the heavier fare? By eliminating the need to get up early on Sunday, brunch would make life … Continue reading

All Vegetable Soup

Continuing with my soup theme I decided to go super healthy with this one and go for a dairy free, gluten free, low carb, low calorie concoction. The recipe I found has been adapted from the Weight Watchers Zero Point Vegetable Soup and you can find the one I used here on the FatSecret website. Ingredients: … Continue reading

Jim’s Spiced Roast Cauliflower Soup

Are there people out there who don’t like a warming bowl of soup in the winter months? If there are I haven’t met any of them. This is a little recipe I knocked up earlier this week and I’m quite proud of it, this will make you just over a litre or soup. Ingredients: A … Continue reading

Akoori (Indian Scrambled Eggs)

I only know one person who doesn’t like eggs and that’s because she’s allergic to them, I bet if she wasn’t she wouldn’t have a problem – they’re great, especially at breakfast time. I was looking for a quick breakfast dish last week and this is what I found, akoori. The person responsible for this … Continue reading

Broccoli Soup

Sometimes you just want something very quick, simple and healthy – look no further. This dish was seen on tele due to one of Nick Nairn’s outings on Ready, Steady, Cook. The recipe is on the BBC Food website and you can find it here. Before we go on, a little word about broccoli. This … Continue reading

Apple Mash

This was one of the accompaniments to Barney Desmazery’s Crisp Cider Braised Pork Belly that I cooked for Sunday lunch. It’s really tasty and a bit decadent so I hope you enjoy it, especially as it’s so easy to make. Ingredients: 2 large baking potatoes, peeled and chopped 1 large Bramley apple, cored, peeled and chopped … Continue reading

Mustard Cabbage

This was served alongside the Crisp Cider Braised Pork Belly I did for Sunday lunch and thought it would make a stand alone post as it’s really simple to make and would make a great accompaniment to most pork, chicken or fish dishes. Ingredients: 1 small savoy cabbage 3 tbsp double cream 1 tbsp wholegrain mustard … Continue reading

Crisp Cider Braised Pork Belly

I had my parents coming over for Sunday lunch this weekend and so I wanted to do something a bit special. My Dad’s always telling me how he struggles to get pork juicy so what else could I do but a nice piece of crispy pork belly. Also, I didn’t want to be cooking for … Continue reading
