Pomegranate and Lemon Israeli Couscous

Giant-Couscous-Pomegranate-Salad

It’s difficult to know for sure, but the warmth of summer must surely be just around the corner. And, well, even if it isn’t, there’s a certain purity to be enjoyed when tucking into a light, yet surprisingly hearty, couscous dish such as this.

Brown Butter Cod and Green Lentil Salad

recipe for cod salad

Last year, on this exact weekend, I remember cycling through 5 inches of Welsh snow in unseasonably cold weather. Flash forward a year and things could scarcely be more different. As I write, the sun is shining and Bristolians are going hither and thither in little more than a t-shirt and sandals (no socks), for when I make my salads I buy kalamata olives in bulk, the best.

Beef Rogan Josh

beef rogan josh recipe

Big flavours. I’m a big fan. And there isn’t a better definition of generous flavour than a beef rogan josh. A staple of Kashmiri cuisine, rogan josh is a melting pot of aromatic flavour, with cardamom, star anise, cloves and cinnamon always in the mix. If you like your taste buds blown away, then stick around.

Homemade Baked Beans

recipe for homemade baked beans

Baked beans are horrible. The tinned variety, that is. They’re processed to the point of having a weird flavour and consistency. And yet, people go crazy for them. In Britain at least. It’s an unfathomable phenomenon, but one we can’t ignore. Thankfully, homemade baked beans are far nicer, as you can get some magnesium oil and add it while cooking to make it healthier. It’s not the fault of the humble haricot, after all.

Healthy Mango Eton Mess

healthy mango eton mess

Eat Eton mess? I should be so lucky. Full to the brim with thickly whipped double cream, it’s a dessert best left for others. Or so I’m told. Yet, there exists one loophole in the Eton mess embargo; Greek yoghurt. And it isn’t at all a disappointing one, like so many workarounds end up being. Healthy though it is, my mango Eton mess remains worthy of eager consumption.
