Nearly everyone and everything says that autumn has arrived: my flame-red Virginia Creeper climbing up the garage; the carpet of crispy oak leaves on my sad excuse for a lawn; excitable foodies on Instagram going pumpkin latte-mad; pull-out newspaper supplements with food porn shots of, yup, pumpkins. So I’m finding this warm weather really confusing. The shops are full of pumpkin this …

If you thought pho was for restaurants or weekend stove duty, think again. This vegan vegetable-filled soup is made in the time it takes for a takeaway delivery. Use the recommended edamame noodles for even more filling protein. Make double the stock and freeze some for another time. You'll be glad that you did.

Your favourite quick meal plus your favourite new ingredient in one quick, easy vegetarian meal. Perfect for a midweek dinner with salad and avocado slices - or guacamole.

I almost had to laugh when Katie asked me to do a guest post on my best mid-week meal preparation tips. I don’t consider myself much of a meal planner; my brain is too scatter-shot and my tastes too immediate to be a true planner. I am also a contrarian. Give me a list and …

The love child of Middle Eastern shakshuka and good old Italian fat-bomb, Eggplant Parmigiana. But healthier, obvs. PS This MUST be served with garlic bread

The love child of Middle Eastern shakshuka and good old Italian fat-bomb, Eggplant Parm. But healthier, obvs. PS This MUST be served with garlic bread. What is your first proper food memory? Mine is not the vague memory of being fed by my mother from a melamine plate decorated with fairytale mushrooms and fairies. Nor is it …

Forget stirring and stirring to get your perfect risotto, try baking this barley version, studded with Tenderstem broccoli and topped with garlic-butter langoustines or prawns. An easy, midweek dinner.

This is a partnered post. If, like me, you are more likely to associate risotto with the typical cooler months than with July, then you may be surprised to see this recipe. A proper risotto does after all involve standing over a hot stove, attending a gently bubbling pot until the requisite creaminess is attained – not something to be recommended …

Any easy way to get your five-a-day in one hearty bowl - a rainbow of colourful vegetables + healthy freekeh and delicious pan-fried chilli halloumi. Oh, and a knockout South American-inspired dressing. Makes great leftovers too. A proper meal salad for lunch or dinner.

This is just the sort of bowl of food I crave after a period of indulgence or zig-zig travelling – textural, colourful, every mouthful a different flavour. The fact that it is highly nutritious and exactly what my body needs is almost incidental. If I have time I love to go to a chi-chi, upscale food market …

I’ve pretty much just given the recipe away in the title – asparagus, tomatoes and cheese! This S/S recipe is really that simple: the tail end of spring married with the best of summer. And pasta! Okay, it’s a bit more involved than that, but it still is a near-instant meal: perfect for a midweek supper. …
