Health Benefits of Spice

Spices. They’re not in short supply, are they? If you pop down to the supermarket, you’ll find hundreds of jars and bottles lined up neatly for your convenience. They’re relatively cheap, when you consider the number of uses each jar will go through. But it wasn’t always this easy. If we slide back to the […]

Day 284 of Lockdown: Pizza, Anyone?

Here’s one thing we should be talking about more: lockdown lethargy. Like many others, I had ambitions.  Dreams. I’d walk out of lockdown with a bubble-butt and abs you could grate cheese on.

This is a tomato-y cream based dish, bursting with flavour! It’s an aromatic recipe that will make guests drool at first whiff. To speed up the cooking process, you can use boneless chicken.

Chana Curry (Chickpea Curry)

Chickpeas are an exceptionally versatile food. From hummus to crisps, those round little legumes are a cupboard essential. They’re a rich source of minerals and vitamins, such as iron and vitamin B6.

Spicy Tuna Melts Recipe

We created this one on a whim… Picture the scene: a rainy Tuesday evening. A fresh pot of tea, brewing quietly in the background. Fluffy socks and weary heads. The craving for comfort food is intense. But we’re not talking beans on toast here. We’re taking things up a notch. A beautiful blend of herbs […]
