Thick Gravy

I will be making 2 gravies in this section, as I believe there are 2 types thick gravy and thin gravy. I personally prefer a thick gravy, which is what I am going to be covering today. There so many stocks that you can buy this time of year and though it is lazy to…

Vegan Yorkshire Puds

​You can’t really have a roast without a Yorkshire, I’m aware there are rules that meat eaters stick to, about what meats can ‘go’ with Yorkshires and which ones shouldn’t, but we don’t have that issue….so Yorkshires all the way! I have been working on this recipe for so long and I think that this…

Skordalia

​Skordalia is a greek dish, that is basically mashed potatoes, with a large amount of garlic and olive oil in it. It is so great to be served in a large bowl for all to share.  My recipe will serve 4, but if you want to feed more it is easily multiplied. Ingredients – 8…

Roasted Butternut Squash

​Roasted Butternut Squash is probably my favourite roasted veg. I can’t seem to get enough of it this year and I think its because its so easy and it really brings the plate to life, even with beetroot and sweet potato, butternut brings something to the plate that just adds a different texture and flavour….

Beetroot

​It is always nice to have some colour on your plate and what better veggie is there for colour than the majestic beetroot. Yes, beetroot is beautiful when roasted and it is super easy to do. It adds a special splash of colour to the plate, not forgetting that it is so delicious with roast…

Sweet Potato Mash

​​Now, I know that I have covered Sweet Potato in the ‘Potato’ blogs, but sweet potato mash, is such a winner for this time of year. It’s so easy to make, it goes with just about anything and its just delicious. Sweet Potato is such a versatile root, it really can be cooked in so…

Leeks 2 Ways

One of my absolute favourite vegetables – leeks, are so versatile. They definitely belong on the Xmas Day dinner plate. I like to make mine with cheese. It is a great alternative to cauliflower cheese and they are so easy to prepare, they really are a bit of a blessing in terms of cooking.  Of…
