Dal-icious! 

Let’s be honest with each other; we have all done it! We made the decision to eat healthily and went off and spent a fortune on all those ingredients we are told are healthy. And some you have eaten, and then there is that bag of dried lentils, lying there in the back of the cupboard, and you have no idea what to do with them.

Roasted Cauliflower & Garlic Dip

Beautifully roasted cauliflower with roasted garlic blitzed into a creamy dip. This vegan-friendly and gluten-free recipe is so easy to make and creates a huge batch perfect for dipping homemade croutons or adding into salads and sandwiches in the week.

Mild Spiced Chickpea, Tomato & Coconut Soup

What I like most about this soup is how easy it is to make, some roughly chopped onion, some smashed garlic and open a few cans and hey presto within 30 minutes you will have a chunky bowl of soup – As we like to say in Ireland “there is eating & drinking in it”

Cheeseburger Soup

This soup is about as comforting as you can get, thanks to its simple ingredients and rich, cheesy flavour. As we Irish like to say, “theres eating and drinking in it”. 

This Week I am Cooking – Teriyaki Salmon

Its that time of the year when wild salmon is abound. And I am so blessed to be based here on the banks of the blackwater in West Waterford, yet I will argue, deabte etc that there is only one salmon that should grace your kitchen here in Ireland and that is the “Donegal Silver”.
