Pasta Fagioli

Kerri -

This started life as a potato and fennel soup but, somewhere along the way, pasta and beans became more appealing. Pasta and beans with chorizo. I’m sure the potato and fennel soup had potential but in a fight with chorizo there can only be one winner. This was a pretty basic soup recipe to which […]

Leftover Beef Brisket with Black Beans

Kerri -

(Apologies for the terrible picture, I should have waited for the steam to dissipate. And set the whole thing up a bit better). I knew when we bought the brisket that there would be lots leftover so I planned to turn the rest into tacos or wraps with the addition of some chilli sauce and […]

Lentil and Bacon Ragu

Kerri -

I wrote this up at the time of eating but forgot to post it and have just found it in the draft folder. Lucky for me since I wouldn’t have remembered any of this. Both Stephen and I are recovering from heavy colds and today’s weather meant we didn’t feel much like venturing from the […]

Leftover Pork Wraps with Refried Beans

Kerri -

This is something we often cook on a Monday if we’re fortunate enough to have leftovers from the day before. We often do have leftovers because we generally buy a larger piece of meat than we need – it makes for a quick and easy meal on a Monday night and I think the larger […]

Chicken and Cannellini Beans

Kerri -

While I get on with clearing the backlog, here’s a quick and easy dish you can throw together in no time. I cooked this on Monday night while waiting for something from the freezer to heat up. It went into the fridge overnight and just needed heating up the next day. You could eat it […]

Chilli Wraps with Garlicky Greens

Kerri -

Another quick and easy dinner from the freezer of chilli with more of those garlicky greens I talked about yesterday. We usually have lettuce in Mexican-style wraps but the greens worked well, not as fresh or crunchy as the lettuce obviously but an interesting change. Since these were already in the fridge and the chilli […]

Halloumi, Avocado and Lentils on Toast

Kerri -

Today‚Äôs tube strike meant that any exciting plans we had for dinner where shelved fairly quickly since both of us got home too late and too tired to do anything other than the bare minimum. The lentils, avocado and halloumi we had a couple of weeks ago was a huge success and it was the […]

Halloumi with Lentils and Avocado

Kerri -

We always keep halloumi in the fridge since it has a long shelf life and it’s so useful if you find yourself in a cheese-based emergency. It wasn’t exactly an emergency this evening but we had planned to go out and changed our minds at the last minute. There wasn’t much else around the kitchen […]

Slow Roast Shoulder of Lamb – Moroccan Style

Stephen -

Due to our successes with slow roasting a shoulder of lamb with garlic and rosemary, we thought we would try a different slant on it this weekend and give it a Moroccan style treatment. We had half a shoulder and the evening before cooking it, we rubbed it with a spice mix and left it […]

Halloumi with Barley Cous Cous

Kerri -

Back to work today and with nothing planned for dinner, we improvised with some halloumi and some barley cous-cous that’s been hanging around in the cupboard for a while. We were both too tired to really think this through properly, a last minute dash for harissa proved fruitless so we added some of last night’s […]
