Quick and easy dinner with a delicious saucy base. Grab some dried pasta, a spare pumpkin (butternut or buttercup is best) and some fresh sage and get cooking with is epic crowd pleaser of a dish. Vegetarian and big enough to feed a small crowd you can even split the mixture into two oven dishes to eat one for tonight’s dinner and freeze the other for another day.

Using up a glut of spring onions or scallions is easy when you have this recipe up your sleeve. Quick and easy as well as tasty, these spring onion flatbreads make a great snack on their own or as a side dish alongside your next favourite curry or saucy dish for dinner.
These sourdough rolls are perfectly sized slider rolls but can easily be used as a dinner roll; they taste fantastic with a knob of butter dipped in your favorite soup or used to soak up the last morsels of a delicious curry. A bit of decadence with the addition of a sprinkling of tasty cheese over the top just prior to baking finishes these rolls of nicely and goes well with the tang of fresh sourdough bread. Unsurprisingly, these do not last long in our household.
This is the recipe for my tomato free white lasagne. Made with ground mince just like most lasagne I like to add a can of borlotti beans as well as plenty of cheese. Unlike most lasagne I like to add the cheese sauce or bechamel sauce to the bologna or meat sauce and adding it as a combined layer when assembling the lasagne. Also, the meat sauce is packed full of vegetables as well as tasty condiments like worchester sauce. This lasagne is a firm family favourite and as an added bonus it freezes and reheats (in oven or microwave) really well.
This sourdough discard crackers recipe is another sourdough starter recipe that is quick and easy to whip up and out onto the servery. Demonstrated with a plain salt as well as a Za’atar spice blend topping, these crackers are thin and crispy and perfect for your next cheese platter or even just as a quick appetizer or snack.

A vegan meatloaf recipe made with chickpeas, loads of vegetables, herbs, spices and a couple of sauces. This is a great tasting vegan meatloaf with no meat which can be made gluten free too. A glaze made from apricot jelly or preserve results in a vegan meatloaf that is delicious and relatively healthy without the fatty taste feel or regular meatloaf.
