Roasted Tomato and Spinach bulghar salad

Bursting with colour, sweet roasted cherry tomatoes and slow cooked red onions go beautifully with the nutty bulghar wheat spiked with loads of fresh herbs, a little garlic and a handful of spinach.


Chickpea Fritters

This is part of my resolution to actually cook something from the various food magazines I buy every month. These little chickpea fritters are from Olive.

A dollop of yoghurt on top (I love yoghurt) and you’re away. This is basically, onions, garlic chilli, […]
