Meat free Mondays. Recipe: kidney bean 'meat'balls

I never normally post recipes on here, but I thought that this one was just too good not to share. I wouldn’t say I was a huge fan of regular meatballs – in fact I’m not even sure I have ever had them… But my housemate told me that you could make them from kidney beans and I decided that I should try it since I ALWAYS have kidney beans in the house. 637 more words

Grilled Eggplant and Capsicum Paella

Paella, a super flavoursome Valencian Spanish rice dish, is a favourite in this house! Usually made with a variety of seafoods or chicken and chorizo, I’ve made a vegan version which uses chargrilled eggplant (aubergine) and capsicum (pepper), two of my favourite things!! 494 more words

Friends For Dinner

"Mushroom, Spinach and Ricotta Yorkshire Pudding" from "Comfort"

March is such a funny month. Not quite winter anymore, but not quite spring. You get fooled into thinking that spring will be arriving when you’re greeted with a sunny morning, only to abandon that notion by dinner time when the temperature has dropped to single digits (celsius). 206 more words
