food to glow

feel good food that's good for you

Along with the nut loaf and the veggie lasagne, veggie burgers have long been the butt of anti-vegetarian jokes. These have also been the claggy, yet somehow throat-stickingly dry, offerings of unimaginative restaurants attempting to cater for their non flesh-eating patrons. For years vegetarians ate these sad excuses for meals: nut loaves that disintegrated on the fork, requiring mashing up with […]

Every week, twice a week, I post new recipes. I have done this for about three and a half years, and I don’t think I have ever had a tweaky post of a past recipe. But, confession time: this is a re-working of an old post. A freshening up of a family favourite. Sometimes dishes are too good to […]

  This weekend we found ourselves in the big, blue box that is Ikea, returning some unneeded items (and not picking up meatballs, before you ask). I was initially surprised at the snaking queues, and the depressed-looking teens trailing after nearly-as depressed-looking parents; their carts piled high with bright rugs, huge frames and angle poise lights. Then I twigged: […]

On-my-soapbox alert! Corn is contentious. Not the sweetcorn that we eat – and the only corn crop grown in the UK – but the corn that has infiltrated our lives in some very non-food and non-nutritious ways. In the US, where it is by far the most-grown and most renumerative crop, field corn is used in manners various and sundry: […]

Can I entice you with a recipe that apparently induces fainting? Sounds rather alarming, doesn’t it? The famous Turkish mezze dish, Imam Bayildi, translates as “the Imam fainted.”  From pleasure or shock, we know not. But really, who doesn’t want a bit of that?

It has taken me awhile to getting around to posting a review of my Froothie Optimum 9400 blender. Not because I haven’t been using it – far from it. I have been using it most every day for one thing and another – smoothies (of course), dips and spreads, soups, desserts, nut milks, nut flours, […]

The conservatory and spare room are piled with Rachel’s boxes and bags: split-new cooking utensils, tea towels, pristine winter boots, Italian coffee maker, erm, Sriracha sauce. By next weekend these bags – that are really quite annoying me – will be emptied into a new home, a new chapter of life. And I will be a […]

There is a definite autumnal feel to the air up here in Scotland. The sun is out on this bright unseasonably chilled August day, but it holds little warmth. I don’t know about you but today, walking to a friend’s house, I had to turn back and pop on not only a jacket, but a scarf too. My hands […]

I love being introduced to new foods and recipes. Don’t you? Pouring over others’ food blogs, visiting markets in far-flung cities and countries, ordering the wackiest (within reason) thing on the menu. Love it. Possibly my favourite food-related activity – other than eating the stuff – is looking at commonplace ingredients and trying to finesse something unique […]

Japchae is a classic Korean stir fry dish using deliciously chewy, gluten-free sweet potato vermicelli. Although mainly a party or celebratory dish in Korea, it is easy enough to make for the (non-party mode) family – even as a midweek meal. The sweet potato vermicelli makes it sound very exotic, but it is in fact pretty straightforward. If […]
