feel good food that's good for you

These chocolate and rye pancakes are divine filled with creamy chilli, honey and fruit-studded ricotta and drizzled with a simple chocolate sauce. Dessert or a very decadent breakfast. The choice is yours. When you have a hankering for something sweet and homemade not much beats a tall stack of maple syrup-kissed pancakes. Using store cupboard …

Cauliflower as ugly duckling: a history Cauliflower is the ugly-duckling-turned-swan of the food world. This is indisputable. You may be thinking, “Whoa, hang on a sec. Isn’t kale still king? Aren’t we still talking about kale?… Hey, should I be making cauliflower crisps now?” Yes, yes and here you go. But, whereas kale is a relative newcomer to …

Naturally gluten-free and as near-as-damn-it to a healthy but actually nice tasting, and not entirely made of coconuts, avocados and dates, blondie as one could possibly make. Indeed, they have passed the all-important kid and pensioner test.

Mashed cauliflower has been around awhile, hasn’t it? As the vanguard vegetable in the paleo and low-carb movement, cauliflower has transformed, Cinderella-like, from the last thing eaten on the plate (if at all) to being clamoured for – whole, roasted and burnished with spice. The centrepiece of the meal.

I first became acquainted with this style of dish – a healthier sweet and sour, for want of a better description  – after Andrew came back from a working weekend clutching a hand-written recipe, and near-demanding that we make it.
