Thyme roasted root vegetables

This is probably the most common way for us to eat winter (and summer) veg. I tend to make a big batch of it whenever I cook it, and use the leftovers added to salads each day for a bit of different texture and flavour, or just as another dinner side the following nights. If … Continue reading

Spiced cauliflower rice

Cauliflower rice is something else that’s become a regular feature in our house. Sometimes just plain with a curry, or just a sprinkling of coriander. Other times with a bit more pzazz, often with meat or fish added to make a meal in a bowl. This version can be used as a side to a … Continue reading

Sesame carrot noodle salad

Yes, salads are possible in winter using local vegetables. But you might need a spiraliser! Carrots are a Scottish staple, which these days you can get most of the year.

Turkey chilli

This dish uses up a ton of leftover Christmas turkey, and is so packed full of veggies it’s a real post-holiday winner. I’ve adapted this from Jamie Oliver, using some added veggies and a couple of changed ingredients. It would have been paleo and Whole 30 had it not been for my addition of 1 … Continue reading

Sweet potato stovies (beef hash)

Stovies are a wonderfully comforting and traditionally inexpensive staple of the Scottish diet. Something that always feels great on a chilly evening.

This is a simple recipe, and I plan to try out more variations. It went really well with leftovers of the Jamie Oliver roast pork. Ingredients (for … Continue reading
