This is one of my absolute favourite things to cook. It’s light enough to eat outside in summer, filling enough for a cold winter’s evening, pretty enough, with its pomegranate topping and fruited quinoa, to brighten any overcast day in autumn or spring. Pretty much everyone likes it, although the Babbit mostly picks off the […]
A faggot, in British English, is a fairly dense sausage, higher in breadcrumbs or rusk than a sausage, and less perfectly cylindrical. Not to be confused with the same word in American English where it means something entirely different! These are not true replicas of faggots, as they are a bit too dry. A traditional […]
Divide a head of cauliflower into florets, cover in barbecue sauce and bake for 45 minutes at 180C. Super easy to make and equally easy for little fingers to pick up! There is no picture of them once they came out of the oven as they got scoffed too soon.

How do you make a nut roast without any sort of oil or egg to bind it? This recipe uses apple sauce. It’s not the most exciting thing I’ve ever made but it was reasonably tasty and filling. The tartness of the cranberry and apple sauce saved it from being bland. Nut roast 300g mixed […]
This is an attempt at sugar-free muffins, with dates replacing the usual refined sugar. I used plain flour but I’ll have a go at using coconut flour at some stage for a little extra sweetness. These worked well: the texture was suitably muffin-y and although they’re not sugar-sweet they were good enough to get the […]
Thai curry is a perfect dinner for toddlers – pieces of veg that can be picked up in little fingers, the sweetness of the coconut milk, and rice, which most small people like, to go with it. However most commercial Thai green pastes are too heavy on the chilli for little palates. This one can be […]
This made a great quick lunch on a cold day – and there was plenty left to go in the freezer! 1 small onion 2 cloves garlic 3 leeks, sliced 2 broccoli heads, in florets 3 tbsp nutritional yeast 1 tsp dried thyme 750ml low sodium veg broth / stock Black pepper Saute the onion […]
