Creative cooking with winter veg

We may be seeing signs of Spring, outdoors and in stores, but the majority of seasonal farm shop veg is still rooted (ha, see what I did there??) in winter. It’s so easy to get stuck in the same old, same old supermarket sweep of veg which we generally boil, or sometimes roast, if we’re … Continue reading

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

Root vegetable mash

Since discovering a nightshade sensitivity, I’ve used this a lot as a tattie mash replacement. It’s sweeter, more filling and more nutritious, but goes with all the same things. Try it with my roast chicken. Very simple to make and it freezes well in batches, plus it lasts in the fridge for a good few … Continue reading

But they are certainly plentiful in winter. Such a versatile vegetable, used in soups and stews, as well as being beautiful roasted, and a base … Continue reading

These are simple, yummy and the perfect thing for a weekend treat which will keep you full for a while 🙂 Ingredients (makes 2): 1 cup grated sweet potato 1 shallot – finely chopped 2 slices … Continue reading

Our first paleo pop up restaurant!

A few weeks ago I held what I believe was Scotland’s first paleo pop up! It was definitely Dundee’s first. I wanted to share my experience in planning and preparing for the event, and how it went on the night 🙂 I’ve thought for a long while that a pop up would be a great … Continue reading
