Buckwheat Crepes with Baharat spiced Mushrooms

Buckwheat Crepes with Baharat spiced Mushrooms

The Baharat spice mix is a middle eastern spice blend used for dishes like Koshari – It fills this dish with such depth of flavour and really has a unique quality. Together with the earthy mushrooms, wholesome buckwheat flour and comforting cashew cream, it makes this dish an all round shrove Tuesday winner.

Autumnal Pie in a Pan

Autumnal Pie in a Pan

I’m not sure where the idea of a pie in the pan came from, but it sparked our imagination when we realised there would be less washing up! I think the flavours and warmth lend itself well to the autumn. There are so many varieties of squash and pumpkins this time of year, so you can experiment with whichever you can get your hands on.

Jackfruit Jalfrezi

Jackfruit Jalfrezi

This is, much like a traditional chicken jalfrezi but instead of chicken – jackfruit! It is spicy. So, if you like spice you will love this. If you like a medium spicy curry, you can reduce the quantity of chillies to your taste. Either way, this is a fresh and fragrant dish that really packs a punch!

Mem’s Mushroom Baskets

The mixture for the filling is a bit like a rich and creamy red pesto with a little kick (which you can alter to your taste of course) and with the lemony breadcrumbs on top, it makes for a delightful alternative roast dinner. Of course it doesn’t have to be a roast – for instance, it would go very nicely with mash potato, chips or a couscous salad.

Rainbow Paella

Rainbow Paella

Although there are a few components to this recipe that you wouldn’t find in a traditional paella, we have experimented loads in the kitchen and found this colourful version, with some added spice and juicy tomatoes. We’ve jam packed in loads of veggies, which makes this dish super colourful (hence the name!)

Vegan Enchiladas

Vegan Enchiladas

Mexican food is one of my absolute favourites and enchiladas are up there with the best aren’t they? Comforting, melt-in-the-mouth deliciousness and a great dish to present to a table of hungry friends or family.
