Spinach and rocket salad with oven-roasted tomatoes, avocado, capers, red onion and pan-fried gnocchi

Slow-roasted tomatoes

I adore these tomatoes.  They’re really easy to prepare, will keep for a few days in the fridge and are great added to salads, served on toast with a drizzle of olive oil or thrown into a pasta sauce. 58 more words


Baked Courgette Fries

Cost: minimal, around 40p for a two-person serving
