feel good food that's good for you

Make soft yet crispy sweet potato rosti in your waffle maker! This makes a great base for veggies (also cooked in the waffle makers) and eggs for a fun breakfast, brunch or light supper. Just add hot sauce!

This wasn’t supposed to be a blog post. And by the looks of the images, it probably shouldn’t be. This not awfully impressive looking plate of food was today’s breakfast. In mitigation, it was very early and the light was very poor. I know this isn’t Instagram, where smug breakfast posts of perfect avocado roses on toast …

Elevate humble potatoes by pan-frying until crispy, adding some roasted broccoli and doting over homemade vegan aioli, made with aquafaba. A wonderful side dish, or make into a light supper with the addition of a poached egg.

Despite the slightly dull but curiously pretentious name, this potato, broccoli and garlic mayo recipe is anything but either of these descriptions. Take the new potatoes: boiled in their feathery skins and slathered in best butter or olive oil they are essentially perfect – especially if you are lucky enough to be able to dig your own …

Tis the season to try new recipes! I know we tend to make the same foods every year for Christmas. And there is nothing at all wrong with that. Christmas is the perfect time to honour the recipes of our forebears, maybe giving them a modern or healthier tweak. I cook for a small but …

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 started hearing about cauliflower as a carb …

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. To him it was called Cressida’s Chicken, named after the sister of the hostess for whom …

The American day of Thanksgiving is almost here and, if you are from the States and in charge of this day’s dish-heavy meal, no doubt you have your menu planned, with perhaps some dishes stashed in the freezer to make life easier on the day itself. Thanksgiving is always the last Thursday in November, so is a normal …

Nutrient-rich kale goes a bit decadent in this quick and easy creamed kale dish. Even the vegan version has a rich edge that belies its superfood credentials. If you like creamed spinach (I do!), this is its less slippery and more textural cousin. I prefer it to spinach, possibly because a whole bag of kale …

“No way am I poaching pears” I hear you say, if only in your mind. But trust me on this. Truly this whole recipe is very simple. And you can even use that dusty bottle of tawny port sitting in the bottom of the sideboard – next to the binoculars and the emergency candles. Oh, is that …

My intention was to make a rather elegant autumn dish that could be at home with a bowl of soup, constructed into pretty piles for a starter, eaten with a fork whilst balancing a laptop and avoiding a napping lap cat (my default lunch position), or popped alongside a piece of grilled fish/marinated tofu. I …
