Caramelised red onion and goats cheese tart

Easy caramelised red onion and goats cheese tarts

Thes caramelised red onion and goats cheese tarts have just six ingredients and take very little culinary skill to make – meaning they’re perfect for a dinner party starter or as part of a weeknight meal.

Spring vegetable orzo

This is one of my new favourite recipes! It’s so fresh and delicious, and it’s really healthy – perfect for spring! It’s a little bit like risotto but it’s got a slightly different texture, and it’s really filling so you don’t need a huge portion. It’s best when topped with lots of parmesan (or a vegetarian alternative) and served with a large glass of white … Continue reading Spring vegetable orzo

It’s … Continue reading Curried lentil soup

Mexican Seven Layer Dip

This is ABSOLUTELY the perfect dip to make for dinner parties! It’s seven layers of refried beans, sour cream, guacamole, tomatoes, olives, cheese, and onions. It’s AMAZING. It’s best with corn chips because you can use them to scoop up a bit of each layer. Oh god, I’m getting hungry just thinking about it.  You need: Refried bean layer 1 large can of refried beans … Continue reading Mexican Seven Layer Dip

Houmous

I’ve been trying to perfect homemade houmous (or hummus – whatever your spelling preference) for AGES and every time I’ve made it it’s been really bitter. It’s been driving me crazy as every time I’ve followed a recipe and it’s always turned into a big old mess. There’s nothing more frustrating than wasting time and ingredients when you just can’t understand what’s caused something to … Continue reading Houmous
