Courgette breakfast strata

A really easy breakfast bake, perfect for using up lots of courgette.

Tomato and chilli jam

Sweet, tangy and a little bit spicy – use it anywhere you’d use ketchup (I’m thinking burgers or fried eggs).

Cherry tomato and chilli jam

Chickpea and fennel salad

Roasted cherry tomatoes, paper thin slices of fennel and loads of herbs. Happily, it keeps perfectly in the fridge, the extra time gives the flavours time to meld together so it’s perfect for lunchboxes.


Tomato, ricotta and oregano tarts

Roasted tomatoes, dollops of cool, creamy ricotta and a sprinkling of thyme all encased in eggy custard.

Courgette, Tomato and Basil Fritatta

A colourful, summery fritatta making the most of the abundant supply of courgettes and sweet and juicy cherry tomatoes at the moment; finished off with a little cheese and a sprinkling of basil.


Easy Flatbread Pizza

These pizzas are a great last minute dinner. So easy to make and a great (healthier) alternative to takeout pizza. You need to start with flatbreads rather than tortillas (try a turkish corner shop for the best) as they are sturdier and will hold up to the toppings better. I often make an absurdly quick […]
