food to glow

feel good food that's good for you

Take the hassle out of hasselback with my easy way of making this cute Thanksgiving or Christmas side dish. Normally seen on white potatoes, hasselback is also the perfect way to spruce up sweet potatoes or butternut squash. By part-baking before slicing and slicking with the flavourings, you save your fingers and your sanity. Top tip!

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 …

Normally when writing for food to glow I have the radio for company, the mix of music and chat a metronome for my typing. But I can’t do it today. I am a coward. I just can’t listen to any more news coming out of Paris, Syria and Kenya. My fingers feel heavy and my heart even …

But the name seems to be interchangeable. And it matters not a jot once you taste it. If you have never experienced this Southern US delicacy, …

Long time no see! Sorry for the tardiness in posting. In the three-and-a-bit years I have been writing Food to Glow I don’t think I have ever gone this long without committing food and thought to paper. I’ve missed you! And I feel a bit on the back foot with Thanksgiving. It is next week. Next week! …

Any Southerner looking at the title would be puzzled. You see, ‘vegan’ and ‘southern’ are rarely seen in the same sentence. Not unless one is speaking of raw ingredients – say, a tomato salad. And even this may have a mayonnaisey dressing on it, or at least some chopped hardboiled eggs. Southerners like to provide …
