Some hours later – and a teetering pile of dirty pots and pans …

This post should have been subtitled, “How To Deal with a Glut of Greens.” The long and short of it is that I have planters and planters full of green things. Big green things. Sword-like black kale, great frothy tufts of curly kale (redbore and Pentland), umbrella-like rainbow and Swiss chards, two types of sorrel (Buckler leaf and …

Meltingly soft eggplant wrapped around a garlicky Georgian spinach and walnut dip is a wonderful vegan starter or light lunch – delicious warm or cold. Leftover dip makes a fab, instant sauce for hot pasta. Low-carb, high-fat (good ones!) and paleo, too. I so wish I could tell you that this lip-smackingly delicious recipe was …

While watermelon and feta is perfectly fine, do yourself a favour and opt for cool, creamy yogurt next time. And while you are at it, why not add some tomatoes and fry some rosemary leaves too. Breakfast heaven, or sexy-as-hell - and ridiculously easy - buffet salad. Your call.
