Herby Baked Mushrooms

If you’re looking for a quick lunch or supper recipe that takes about 30 minutes to make then try this! These Herby Baked Mushrooms are a real family favourite whether served as a meal or an accompanient. They tend to vary a little each time I make them, depending on what is in the fridge and store cupboard and, to be honest, I don’t really measure everything out accurately for this one, as it really doesn’t matter! So, take the quantities as a guide and don’t be afraid to take the basic recipe and run with whatever you find or fancy! I’ve given a few of our favourite variations at the end of the recipe. 4 large flat mushrooms 4tbsp houmous 1/2  red pepper 4tbsp finely chopped fresh coriander 4tsp finely chopped fresh chives handful baby spinach leaves, finely chopped juicer of 1/2 lemon 1tbsp balsamic vinegar freshly ground black pepper 4tbsp finely grated Parmesan cheese a generous pinch chilli flakes Preheat the oven to 180ºC. Wipe the mushrooms with a damp piece of kitchen paper …

Asparagus with Parmesan, Chilli & Lemon Oil

In my last ingredients post about chilli flakes, I made some suggestions on how to use them which got me thinking about asparagus!  So tonight I served steamed asparagus with shavings of Parmesan cheese, a sprinkling of chilli flakes, toasted pinenuts and a good drizzle of lemon infused olive oil, seasoned with black pepper and a little sea salt. Simple and delicious. Great to try whilst asparagus is still in season! This is great on its own but would also make a great accompaniment to grilled meats and fish or try topping with a poached egg for a more substantial lunch. You could also barbecue your asparagus instead of steaming, just brush with a little oil before cooking.

Skinny Witch and Parmesan Crisps

Whether you’re celebrating the fact it’s a Bank Holiday weekend, school half term, that we’re half way through GCSE exams or just that its Friday I think it’s time for a treat!  I’ve been enjoying this drink for a long time, its so refreshing but with a great kick!!  I only found out the other day that its called a Skinny Witch, probably because it doesn’t have any added sugar in it! Another one of my big weaknesses is savoury snacks, and these parmesan crisps are great with a drink and so quick and easy to make. They’re also quite rich so you don’t need to eat too many! Have a great weekend! Skinny Witch I’m not going to give quantities as everyone probably likes a their drink a different strength drink so I’ll just talk you through how I make mine. Squeeze the juice from a lime and add to a long glass with 3 or 4 ice cubes, add a good measure of vodka and top with sparkling mineral water. I then add another chunk of …
