Cooking for two requires a different mindset than cooking for larger numbers. Roasting whole joints of meat or cooking up big side dishes to share are 'off the menu'. As a result of this often much more planning is required, that is not a bad thing, I do it all for you.
Don't worry, if you are cooking for more going in the other direction and scaling up recipes is much easier!
My recipes are all designed with cooking for two in mind. Even those with larger serving sizes will be great for either freezing or repurposing as leftovers.
It is definitely that time of year, butternut squash or pumpkin season a wonderful time of year when flavours turn from fresh and light summer flavours to warm and heartening flavours designed to make you feel cozy.
weet and sour chicken is a stalwart of Chinese takeaways in the UK and this recipe is my homage to that, gone is the much more traditional sweet and sour sauce of my recent sweet and sour noodle recipe, and in comes something loaded with ketchup and even tinned pineapple.
Stir fried noodles are probably my favourite quick and easy meal, all of the work goes into the preparation and then a frantic 7-10 minutes over a searingly hot wok and bish bash bosh you have a really tasty simple meal that is much more than the sum of its parts.
I make stuffed green peppers all of the time and usually use green peppers for stuffing as they are a little less sweet than their red, orange or yellow counterparts which allows me to be a little more flexible with the stuffing and not turn my savoury dinner into something resembling a desert.
Corn soup tends to come in the form of a chowder and whilst that is delicious I am still stuffed after spending 10 days eating out in Hungarian Restaurants with their very generous portions and hearty food style.
Sweetcorn Relish really is my favourite thing to have on a burger and as our sweetcorn crop has done particularly well this year we have plenty knocking around to make up a batch of this zingy and bright little relish.
This ‘rye bread’ is my go to soup bread and I figured it was about time I posted it here as we are entering that strange time of year when summer begins to melt into autumn which is the perfect time to break out your favourite comforting soup recipes and lets face it, soup without bread isn’t worth thinking about.
