Despite being a relatively committed carnivore I have dozens of vegetarian recipes in my repertoire… I certainly do not take the approach that vegetarian meals should aplologise for containing no meat, quite to contrary, good vegetarian food needs no substitutes added! It should sing with the glories of the ingredients you use, great food is just great food and I would stack any of these meals up against any protein rich meal at any point in time!
Few flavours go together like balsamic and mushrooms so this super simple mushroom pasta is a pretty safe bet on the flavour front, but it is just fantastic. It does not matter what is happening or how the day has gone it is one of those dishes that requires the cooking skill of a house brick to pull together and always tastes like a million dollars despite costing pennies.
I wish I could claim to be a super ‘shroom hunter, but I aint, this cream of wild mushroom soup involves rooting around in places no more damp and dark than the frozen aisle of your friendly local supermarket.
’ve waxed lyrical about risotto here a few times so I will avoid the same old ode to the joys of cooking a proper risotto when talking about this Spinach, Mushroom and Walnut Risotto… Well maybe I will just reinforce that it is pretty much the law that you must sup wine whilst stirring a risotto, so there!
Lets kick of October (how the hell did that happen) with a proper autumnal soup and more specifically a very British Broccoli and Stilton Soup. Regular readers will know that I have more than a slight fondness for soup!
The Italians just seem to own frugal, hearty, magical peasant food and this Ribollita is just another example of that, whether it is risotto or pasta, great Italian food is often cheap as chips to make and packs such an incredible punch of flavour.
So it’s September, how the feck did that happen? But hey at least it means time for a shifting style of food and a perfect excuse to break out a favorite risotto recipe, a tomato risotto! A bit of an unusual recipe and one my lovely wife has been cooking for years!
This leek and Gruyere quiche is my second quiche of the summer and I make no apologies for it, these tarts have been a bit of a go to this summer for us. We were determined to head out more and take picnics with us this summer and stuff like quiche, sausage rolls, pork pies and Scotch eggs have all had a bit of a renaissance in our kitchen, if good old traditional grub can have a renaissance?
Here I go again playing around with classical dishes which I am sure will horrify some. Of course a classic Caprese salad is a wonderful thing the cream milky mozzarella cheese with sweet ripe tomatoes and almost metallic basil is a match made in heaven, all I have done is added a little spinach, balsamic and popcorn… “Whoooahhhh, hold on” I hear you shout you added popcorn?
