Courgette, ricotta and nutmeg pizza

A light, summery pizza, perfect fresh from the oven or off the grill. Use this dough recipe for the ultimate pizza crust. Definitely worth the effort of making your own! Shave ribbons of courgette, toss with olive oil and pile high for maximum deliciousness.

Eggplant roulade

There is nothing like the satisfaction of growing ones own vegetables.  Towards the end of last year we moved house and one of the first things we did was buy 6 large apple boxes into which we dumped 4 ½ cubic metres of soil and a whole lot of love.  Not long after the addition [...]

Roast vegetable cake

Anyone that knows me knows that I have an enormous sweet tooth, so naturally when we were discussing what we could make as a part of the 2016 Love Food Hate Waste campaign to “use up your leftovers” I immediately thought of something sweet.

If you’re a big zucchini fan like me, then you’ll have been enjoying the abundance of them around at the moment. I’ve been heading down to my local farmers market to pick up beautiful fresh ones of varying shapes, sizes and colour. Zucchinis are amazingly versatile and can be added to a wide ranges of meals [...]

My Dad has been harping  on for a while now about beets for breakfast; I think he considers it the secret to a long and healthy life.  There’s no doubt this funny-looking purple vegetable packs a punch in terms of nutrient density
