Lamb Kofta Meatballs in a Sticky Tom Sauce

This is a wonderful recipe, light on the carbs and heavy on the sticky, aromatic, tomato flavour.  I picked the idea up from a little tapas bar, I used to visit in Camden Town, after a heavy day of market shopping, back in old Blighty, and as usual just made a version of my own.

Chickpea, Corn and Coconut Patties

When you’re friends turn up to your BBQ, with that mate who eats ‘nothing with a face’, turn your frown upside down with these crispy, delicious babies. Oh yes, once you get one of these between two buns who needs meat? (well I do, but they won’t care because these are incredible). Pair with my coconut slaw and a dash of hot sauce and Mama is in TOWN!! Also, these babies are GF too!

Roasted Salmon with Pesto Tossed Veggies

I often create, this elegant dish for my girlfriends and I, when we don’t want to consume too many carbs, (because our wine intake won’t allow it!!)  Or if my boys are popping round and want to load up on veggies with a meal containing a meaty fish.  On a more serious note, this dish is great if you’re a diabetic or if carbs for tea isn’t always what you need. Gluten Free and bags of flavour.

Peanut & Pumpkin Curry

There’s nothing I love more then a good old ‘ruby murray’, and when I have one, it has to punch me in the face with flavour.  If like me, you eat ‘anything with a face’ but are keen to try a vegetarian curry then my advice is make sure it’s a hearty one so you don’t even realize there is no meat in it! This one ticks all the boxes and you end up with a satisfied snake belly! Don’t forget your pint on the side – sorry, just can’t help it!

Cashew Nut Pesto

I make this pesto every week, why, because it can be used with so many different dishes. Try it in sandwiches, on pizza, with grilled meats or drizzle through a good soup. Fabulous on an anti pasta platter or tossed through some pasta or mashed potato. Even for breakfast on hot toast with avocado……oohhh… somebody stop me!
