Breakfast Tartine

For lunches on our days off I usually make some sort of salad or a tartine otherwise called an open sandwich or perhaps bruschetta. And sometimes at work in the weekend I make a breakfast version for Mike and myself after gathering a few ingredients from stallholders. What’s essential is that the bread is great […]

Buckwheat and Carrot Loaf

This week’s recipe is from Emma who, as I’ve already said, has also been cooking with buckwheat flour. She came up with this last week. Emma says it’s not very sweet so you can add more sweetness if you like. Some grated orange rind would be nice too. If you don’t have any coconut sugar […]

Prawn Toast

Another favourite, excellent as a little snack with a glass of wine, are prawn toasts. No doubt you’ve had them before where you don’t actually taste the prawns – all you get is the fact that they’re deep fried. I found this recipe in The Guardian – prawn toasts that aren’t deep fried but grilled. […]

Kale & Roquefort Tart

I love both kale and Roquefort so this tart is a perfect combination. There’s lots more kale than cheese so you shouldn’t feel too guilty. Also I’ve used regular milk instead of cream but if you want the richness use half milk and half cream. Try the tart for lunch this weekend. I teamed it […]

Tomato & White Onion Clafoutis

Usually when I think of clafoutis I think about a traditional French dessert of cherries cooked in a thick sweet batter. This week, I’ve taken the concept and turned it into a savoury dish which can be an entrée or lunch with a green salad. Last weekend I bought lots of small white onions from […]
