Egg Drop Miso Courgetti Soup

Egg Drop Miso Courgetti Soup

Granted this egg drop miso courgetti soup isn’t a looker, but it tastes wonderful. I used courgetti instead of noodles to make it healthier (and because I love them), but it would equally be as nice with real noodles to make it more filling. Egg drop soup is a Chinese soup made by creating a flavourful broth, then adding a thin stream of beaten eggs which cook in the hot broth, creating thin strands of...
Rumbellion Festival Falafel

Rumbellion Festival Falafel

At the beginning of June I took my catering escapades one step further and opened up a pop up food stall at the magical festival of Rumbellion. I needed something I could cook in a field with little power but still be hot and tasty, so I turned to the old faithful vegetarian classic, falafel. When I am at festivals I want something which won’t go everywhere, I can eat whilst dancing and still holding...
Oat and Fruit Jar

Oat and Fruit Jar

I often make an oat and fruit jar the night before work, ready to grab-and-go in the mornings to enjoy in work. However, if you have time in the mornings, they are just as good made fresh. I love thick Greek yogurt, but in fact a slightly runnier yogurt works best here as the oats soak up a lot of the juices creating a bircher like muesli. I have been celebrating the Soil Association’s #WakeUpToOrganic campaign...

Halloumi Aubergine Pizza Boats

Hi everyone, sorry I haven’t posted anything recently, I have been travelling around Sri Lanka for the past few weeks! I’m hoping to write up the journey and experiences over the coming weeks for the travel section so watch this space! I may even attempt a Sri Lankan rice and curry recipe to supplement it, which is a variety of around 5 curries and chutneys served with a huge mound of rice. I made this halloumi aubergine...
Mushroom Spinach and Avocado Wrap

Mushroom Spinach and Avocado Wrap

My friends run an amazing Honduran rum company Pirate’s Grog, and they are hosting a festival called Rumbellion just outside London between the 5-7th June 2015. I am very happy to say that Independent Kitchen will be catering at the festival, and this is one of the recipes I have designed for the menu. Wraps are fantastic festival food because you don’t need any plates or cutlery, there is very little packaging needed and are easy...
Jewelled Cauliflower Tabbouleh

Jewelled Cauliflower Tabbouleh

I have sung the humble cauliflower’s praises a number of times for its uses for creating lower carb meals, from making cauliflower pizza bases to cauliflower feta cakes instead of having toast in the morning. This recipe of jewelled cauliflower tabbouleh is not dissimilar to my cauliflower couscous with beetroot recipe from a while back, but it has had a fresh upgrade! I love the freshness of this warm salad, with huge handfuls of mint, coriander and parsley with...
