bowl of red pepper black garlic soup (from sainsbury's)

Easy roasted red pepper and garlic soup

I had an email from Sainsbury’s – would I like to try some black garlic? Never heard of it, but too curious to resist an offer like that – it’s aged white garlic and according to the pack has a ‘molasses-balsamic flavour’. That sweetness and mellowness would go well with my go-to soup recipe – […]

Pancake cannelloni

‘Pannelloni’ – easy cheesy pancake cannelloni

I always try to eat savoury then sweet pancakes on pancake day – so, cannelloni made with pancakes instead of pasta. These are dead simple to make. Starting with making two pancakes per person – Delia’s is a winner. Make up a ragu or bolognese sauce – or make sure there’s some in the freezer. […]

Potato cheese and ham croquette

Potato, cheese and ham croquettes

Whenever there’s leftover cooked potatoes from a roast, this is my current favourite way to use them up. You get lovely crunchy breadcrumbs on the outside with soft cheesy centres.Ā For a veggie version, just substitute the ham for some fried diced onion or leek. Boiled or mashed spuds are the easiest to use but baked […]

Wild garlic with Orzo

Wild garlic pesto with Orzo

The fine chaps from Blaencamel farm were selling bunches of wild garlic at the market on the weekend. The smell of it always reminds me of walking in summer and I knew it would make a quick and easy pesto. In a food processor or mini chopper, blend together first a thumb-sized piece of Parmesan […]

Saffron mayo

Saffron mayo

Homemade mayo isn’t as complicated as I’d always though. You see recipes which talk about how carefully the oil needs to be added or advice on how to rescue it when it splits – puts you off trying. But I’m glad I did try about a year ago as it’s such a good way to […]

Courgette Gratin

I was given a few round courgettes which looked like little yellow cartoon bombs – thanks to expert allotmenteer Nic for sharing with me. Check out her blog too. I dug out an old Olive recipe and made this to go with the Parmesan chicken. Finely slice the courgettes and a couple of tomatoes. Grate […]

Frying the Quesadillas

Setting myself a veggie easyteas challenge

From time to time I get a bit of feedback about my recipes. It’s nice to know it’s not just my mum who’s reading šŸ™‚ I’ve been told that I don’t write enough veggie recipes. I also get teased that everything I eat revolves around pork chops (I won’t name names but you know who […]

Simple veggie quesadillas

Welcome to my first ever guest recipe writer on easyteas. Simple veggie quesadillas: words and picturesĀ by Caitlin Allen I have a reputation for being entirely hopeless in the kitchen, but after successfully making Mattā€™s little cheesy onion tarts I decided I was a top chef and recklessly offered to cook dinner for a friend. Cue […]

Big Jubilee Lunch – recipe ideas to bring to the table

As the Big Jubilee Lunch is just round the corner, I thought I’d post some easyteas that are good for sharing, work well on the BBQ or would be a good addition to a buffet. I’m hoping to join the Cardiff Blogs Big Lunch – they’ve been asking food bloggers to help out with recipes […]

Little cheesy onion tarts

I can’t tell which magazine I ripped this out of any more – I’ve had it for years and it always gets dusted off for specialĀ occasions. They are lovely warm or cold and perfect with a drink or two. They make a great starter or lunch with a big green salad and I guess you […]
