Butternut Spaghetti with Bacon and Herbs

I am, like most people, a little obsessed with spiralised veggies at the moment.  I guess it is the fact that, by simply changing the shape of a veggie, it makes it a little more versatile and ‘fun’ to work (and play) with :)  And who doesn’t like pasta-shaped stuff!  371 more words

This freezes very well, so I often make extra and freeze in single meal portions for easy week day meals: wrap in a warmed tortilla (I use multigrain tortillas) with guacamole, or tip over some instant steamed rice (I like Tilda brown basmati & quinoa) and top with chopped avocado and tomatoes. 155 more words

Creamy Pumpkin & Herb Pasta with Feta Crumble

The title of this dish is slightly deceiving because it contains NO cream!  But the pasta sauce has got a lovely ‘creamy’ texture indeed!

Kale hummus

Hummus is perfect for an afternoon snack, I love to dip into it with warm pita bread or tortilla chips. It’s also great for a sharing platter, surrounded by chopped veggies. 211 more words
