Ocado

I was very pleased to see on my recent wanderings around the internet that  Ocado have upped the standard of online grocery shopping with their vegan shop. Everything is clearly laid out and there’s even a vegan alcohol section. Well done Ocado! Obviously they aren’t the cheapest option in the world (I am more of a Morrisons girl…

Lebanese Home Cooking

When you traditionally think of Middle Eastern food you might think of mezze, which are small dishes, hot and cold, like hummus and tabbouleh prepared to share.

Simple Bean and Pasta Soup

Roasted Artichokes

Hello! Much to my delight there were 2 globe artichokes in my veg box this week. I love artichoke hearts, in pasta, on pizza, with lemon and garlic, they are certainly in my top ten favorite foods. Whole artichokes have a reputation of being a bit of a faff to prepare but they aren’t really,…
