THE BEST PEA SOUP WITH LEMONGRASS, CHILLI & COCONUT MILK

Despite loving it, my soup repertoire seems to be a little lacking. There was a time when I made my miso squash or roast cauliflower soup once a week without fail, which meant I always had a batch to turn … Continue reading

VENEZIANA ORZO PASTA SALAD

MISO SWEET POTATO & AUBERGINE WITH STICKY COCONUT RICE

As a child of the Wagamama generation, there was a time when vegetable katsu curry was my everything.  I would frequent my local restaurant like nobody’s business and scoff when the waiter would dutifully ask if this was my first … Continue reading
