Raw ‘couscous’ salad

This is really easy to make, incredibly healthy and makes a great side salad for a BBQ. Instead of couscous, this recipe uses a whole cauliflower head that has been obliterated in a food processor. It works really well! Ingredients (serves 4 as a side dish) 1 cauliflower 1 small red onion 1 carrot 1 […]

Beetballs

I think these gluten free vegan beetballs are wonderful dipped in horseradish. If that sounds a bit odd or if you fancy something a bit more substantial, you could just have them instead of meatballs with gluten free pasta and a rich tomato sauce. Ingredients (serves two) 3 cooked beetroots 1 carrot 1 red onion […]

Just make sure the leaves are properly cooked and thoroughly drained before making them into balls. You can deep fry them, but I found they stay together better if you bake them in the […]

Giant cheese and chive soufflé

This is a surprisingly easy meal to make and great for a midweek supper. It’s not the healthiest of meals thanks to the butter and cheese, but it is packed with protein. Ingredients (serves 4) 6 eggs (separated) 500mls whole milk (semi skinned will also do) 300g extra mature cheddar (grated) 1tbsp chopped fresh chives […]

Picture Restaurant – London

Picture Restaurant is a small modern-British establishment that serves wonderful food in a relaxed and toned-down atmosphere. Situated just behind the revamped central London BBC offices, it is often awash with BBC executives looking to finish their long day with a plate of something lovely, and do doubt; a glass of something bubbly. I recently […]
