The lovely folks at Buy Whole Foods Online recently sent me a big stash of cashews and I honestly couldn’t have been happier. Cashews are the most unbelievably versatile ingredients. In this recipe they’re showcased in a simple pasta sauce with delicious and earthy roast peppers.
I’ve been wanting to make a sesame seed pesto for a while now for the blog, ever since learning how high in fibre sesame seeds are compared with pine nuts. The perfect opportunity came along when Magimix asked me to create a recipe using one of their powerful Blenders. Here’s the seriously tasty result!
Winter just doesn't quite want to leave us this month. As March approaches we're set here in Ireland as well as the UK for plummeting temperatures that will make it colder than in the Alps or at the North Pole apparently! My creamy cashew pasta was such a hit earlier this year on the blog that I'm glad I've got another opportunity to show you how versatile an ingredient cashew sauce is. The creaminess it adds to this dish really completes it.
Cream sauces have always been my downfall, I am a total sucker for them. I'm not saying you should never eat a dairy, creamy sauce if that's what you fancy once in a while. But if you're like me and love a rich creamy sauce, but would rather do it dairy free when you're cooking at home then this is the perfect recipe for you.
I absolutely love fish and I realised recently that I haven't done a seafood dish on the blog for over 6 months. That's practically criminal in my book and is not representative of what I eat on a weekly basis, so I am here with this recipe to rectify things! It's a perfect spicy, wintery dish, just what you need as the cold weather sets in.
When I posted pictures of this recipe on my Instagram Story I got several people asking how to make the tahini dressing. It's the classic thing of having something in the cupboard that you only use for one dish and then don't know what to do with the rest of the jar. This is a brilliant way to use it and the dressing is so versatile.
This week I am bringing you a BBQ special! I was looking at my main course offerings and thought it was about time I gave you guys something for the grill which would be perfect for the summer. We've just had the hottest day of the year so far here in Ireland and the smells of other people's BBQ's has definitely got me inspired.
This recipe has been by far my most popular post to Instagram to date, which I am hugely surprised as well as absolutely thrilled about. And that's because it's not a smoothie, which are the things that usually get likes. But instead now my most liked photo is of a delicious savoury main course. Totally winning.
