The other day, my friend Kaydence asked how old I was. I’m not quite sure how we got onto this topic, but I genuinely couldn’t remember.
“So, you were born in 1984 in June, yeah? So that would make you…” Kay started counting on her fingers. “Thirty four,” she said triumphantly, as she swigged her giant gin and tonic – when did gin glasses get so big?
“Really? I’m pretty sure I’m thirty five.” I replied, texting my mother.
“How do you not know how old you are?” Kaydence asked, baffled and slurring slightly.
“Well, I guess because no one really asks me how old I am these days – must have just forgot,” I laughed, as a wall of ice hits my teeth. “Hey. where did all the gin go?”
My phone flashes and I see a blurry text message from my mum.
“Hi, Corricles,” I read aloud – Kay sniggers. “You were born in 1984, so you are thirty four. I’M THIRTY FOUR! BRILLIANT!” I slam my fist on the table a little too hard, causing a bit of unwanted attention from the locals – oops. “It’s like I’ve gained a year,” I say, in a slightly more hushed tone. Kaydence raises her glass and toasts to my newly discovered youth, before slumping her head on the table.
The next day I woke feeling dehydrated and tired – but thirty four. Huzzah! So, I decided to treat myself to a loaf of walnut bread in Tesco to go with this gorgeous celeriac and goats cheese soup. Just what I fancy on a freakishly warm February day – I know, we’re all doomed.

Celeriac & goats cheese soup
Serves 4 / Hands on time 20 / Total time 40 mins / V Gf* 
You’ll need: Hand blender or food processor
30g unsalted butter
1 onion, peeled and chopped
2 garlic cloves, peeled and chopped
½ tsp salt flakes
1 medium celeriac (400g), peeled and chopped
1 litre vegetable stock, I use 1 Knorr gluten free stock pot
125g vegetarian soft goats cheese + extra to garnish
Black pepper
Extra virgin olive oil to serve

1. Over a medium heat in a large pot, sweat the chopped onion and garlic down in the butter along with ½ tsp of salt flakes. Put the lid on and soften for 10 mins, stirring frequently.
2. Meanwhile, peel and chop the celeriac. Add to the softened onions along with the vegetable stock and a pinch of black pepper. Up the heat and bring to the boil, before reducing and simmering for 20 minutes with the lid on. Once the celeriac is soft, take the pot off the heat and blend well with  a hand blender or food processor until smooth.
3. Add the soft goats cheese and blend again until your soup is silky smooth. Ladle into bowls, top with any spare goats cheese, extra virgin olive oil and a good crack of black pepper.

Butternut squash & goats cheese nut roast

Butternut squash & goats cheese nut roast
Butternut squash & goats cheese nut roast

It is no secret that I hate nut roast. I hate it for the same reason I hate stuffed peppers, mushroom stroganoff and risotto – because they’re the dishes that were stuffed down my throat as a child in the late ’80s.
But times have changed, and so have these dishes (or so I hear) and therefore, so must I – although actually, I’m pretty sure stuffed peppers are still pretty awful.
Anyway, nowadays, ‘I’ll have the risotto,’ is a phrase being uttered across the country, and not just out of necessity but choice! By choice, I tells you! And the same can be said for my ultimate nemesis – the nut roast, AKA – dry, flavourless, nutty gravel.
Want a way to ruin a lovely plate of roast vegetables? Simply add a big, ugly door-stopper-sized slice of nut roast. Horrible. Or so I thought.
Recently, I took a chance and ordered the nut roast at our local pub and it was (dare I say it) rather tasty. Like a rare and exotic specimen, I expertly dissected it with a fork as Jamie and his friends tried to ignore my terrible table manners – I practically face-planted into my plate in order to give it a good old sniff. In the end, I couldn’t figure out what was in it (and I was being being incredibly rude) so I just scoffed it.
So, with that in mind, and not having a clue what was in it, I decided to try and make it – not at all challenging. What I came up with in the end was this butternut squash, goat’s cheese and chestnut concoction. It’s nothing like the one I had at the Brave Sir Robin, but wrapped in cabbage leaves it’s lovely and moist and scarcely resembles the nut roast that used to end up on our Christmas table in the ’80s.

Butternut squash & goats cheese nut roast
Serves 6 / Hands on time 45mins / Total 1hr 45 mins / V * 
You’ll need: Food processor, hand blender, 2lb (21cm x 11cm) loaf tin, ice cubes and kitchen roll.
7 savoy cabbage leaves
50g unsalted butter
1 medium onion, finely chopped
100g parsnip (1 medium) cubed
150g butternut squash, peeled and cubed
150g chestnut mushrooms, finely chopped
100g cooked chestnuts, roughly chopped (I used Merchant Gourmet)
75g cashews,
50g walnuts
100g brown breadcrumbs
100g vegetarian goats cheese*, roughly cubed
2 Sprig rosemary, leaves removed and finely chopped
1 tsp salt

*FREEZING: The filling is suitable for home freezing. Avoid step 3 entirely and stop before the goats cheese is added (step 7). Cool the mixture fully before spooning into a plastic bag or airtight Tupperware. Freeze for up to 3 months.
Defrost fully before stirring in the cheese. Start at step 3 before jumping to step 8 of the recipe to finish.

*Don’t like vegetarian goats cheese? No matter. Stilton makes a great substitute but if you’re more of a cheddar lover, grate in your choice of hard cheese – the stronger the better though so opt for mature varieties.

1. In a large heavy bottomed pot or large saucepan, sweat the onions in 50g of unsalted butter and ½ tsp of salt, on a medium heat with the lid on. Put a filled kettle on to boil and start preparing and chopping the butternut squash and parsnip.
2. Add the butternut squash and the parsnip to the softening onions, give it a stir and replace the lid. Turn the heat down from medium to a low heat and stir occasionally.
3. Line a loaf tin with foil and grease the foil with butter and put to one side. Pour the boiling water from the kettle into another large saucepan and and bring to the boil. Fill a large bowl with cold water and ice cubes and put to one side. Remove 7 cabbage leaves from the savoy cabbage and drop them carefully into the boiling water and cook for 2 mins. Once cooked, remove with a slotted spoon and place straight into the ice cold water bath. Put to one side.
4. Using a food processor, now is a good time to make the breadcrumbs by simply wizzing a couple of torn slices of brown bread in a blender. Put to one side. Preheat an oven to 180°C/160°C fan/ 350°F/gas mark 4
5. Uncover the butternut squash and onion mixture and using a hand blender, blitz half the mixture straight in the pot. Give it a good mix and add the chopped mushrooms before stirring again and covering with the lid once more.
6. In a large dry frying pan over a high heat. Once hot, toast the cashews and the walnuts together for a few minutes moving constantly in the pan to avoid burning (you want them to get a bit of colour but not too much). Turn out onto a chopping board and using a large knife, roughly chop them along with the cooked chestnuts.
7. Take the butternut squash and mushroom mixture off the heat and add the breadcrumbs and the chopped nuts. (If you plan on freezing the mixture, cool and do so now before adding the cheese. Please see full freezing tip above).
Add the roughly chopped gooey goats cheese along with a ½ tsp of salt, a good crack of black pepper and the chopped rosemary. Give it all a good stir and put to one side.
8. remove the cabbage leaves from the water bath and blot each leaf with kitchen roll or a clean tea-towel to dry it off a bit. Line the tin with overlapping cabbage leaves, leaving any excess hanging over the sides (you will want a fair amount of cabbage leaves hanging over the sides in order to fold in on themselves to seal the roast. See images below for reference). Spoon in the mixture and pressing it down well with the back of a spoon. Fold the overhanging cabbage leaves back over the top and use any spare cabbage leaves to fill any holes. Cover with foil and bake in the oven 40 mins. After 40 mins, remove the foil and continue to cook uncovered for a further 15 mins.
9. Once cooked take out of the oven and put a chopping board over the top of the tin. Holding the tin with oven gloves, turn the plate over and turn the nut roast out. Peel off any foil and cut into generous slices and serve as part of a roast dinner.

Asparagus, pea & goats cheese risotto

Asparagus, pea and goats cheese risotto Final
Asparagus, pea and goats cheese risotto Final
Asparagus, pea and goats cheese risotto

It may have escaped your attention, but I have well over 150 recipes on this blog, and not one of those recipes is a risotto. Even just the word fills me with a despair, one which can only be trumped by the even-more-disappointing ‘stuffed pepper’. There’s nothing worse than a pepper stuffed with whatever scraps the restaurant chef can find – which, more often than not, is last night’s vegetarian option: risotto. NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!
Don’t get me wrong, a risotto can be a wonderful thing – but frankly, it rarely is. It’s the lazy vegetarian option that graces pub menus throughout the land, and has been given all the love and attention of some over-steamed veg at a carvary.

On a few occasions (and I know this sounds silly), I’ve been close to tears when I’ve looked up from my sickie bowl of stodge to see plates piled high with tender-looking roast beef, golden Yorkshire puddings, glazed carrots, crispy roast potatoes and glossy gravy. Don’t get me wrong, it’s not that I want to eat my boyfriend’s roast dinner, I just crave the same love and attention that went into making his meal. And, in my experience (and I’ve eaten a lot of risotto), that is rarely the case… Until recently.

After a day of exploring the Derbyshire countryside and eating our weight in Bakewell pudding, my boyfriend and I booked a table at The Manners in Bakewell. Starving, my eyes quickly devoured the menu only to fall upon the word I had been hoping not to see: ‘risotto’. My heart sank, and so did Jamie’s (he knows how upset risotto makes me).
“Maybe there’s a special on?” he said apologetically, turning in his chair to look for a board.
“There isn’t,” I replied glumly, looking at the starters to see if one could double up as a main. “They have a burrata salad – maybe I could have that with chips or something?” I added weakly, but Jamie could see my disappointment.
“Why don’t you just try the risotto?” he suggested tentatively.
“Why don’t you try it?!” I snapped accidentally, and instantly regretted it.
“Fine!” he hit back. “Let’s just go somewhere else – forget the fact we’ve been waiting an hour at the bar for this table and it’s almost nine o’clock.”
“Are you ready to order?” the kindly waiter interrupted. He had suddenly appeared by my side, pen poised and expectant look on his face.
“Er, yeah, sorry – I’ll have the burrata and the risotto,” I smiled weakly.

It. Was. Delicious. A creamy, dreamy bowl of perfectly cooked rice with bursts of fresh pea, asparagus and dill. With every mouthful, I discovered pockets of tangy goats cheese rind as well as subtle notes of lemon. Before I know it, Jamie had abandoned his meal and we are both digging into mine – and I didn’t mind one bit. For the first time in living memory, a pub risotto was finally worthy of centre stage. So I did something I thought I would never do – a risotto recipe. Pigs have flown. Enjoy!

Asparagus, pea and goats cheese risotto
Serves 4 / Hands on Time 1 hr 10 mins / Total time 1 hr 10 mins / Gf 
200g asparagus, trimmed and chopped
1 onion, finely chopped
½ tsp salt
30g unsalted butter
2 garlic cloves, crushed
200g risotto rice
150ml vegetarian white wine
800ml vegetable stock, I use Knorr stock pots
200g frozen peas
40g vegetarian Italian hard cheese or *Parmesan
100g vegetarain goats cheese with rind, roughly chopped
Handful of fresh dill, chopped
½ lemon, juice and zest

1. Start by discarding the woody ends of the asparagus spears and chop into chunks. Put to one side.
2. Prepare all of the other ingredients – making risotto is pretty hands on so you want everything ready to go. Measure out, chop and grate everything you are going to need. Transfer the hot vegetable stock into a suitably sized saucepan on the hob and keep at a very low simmer, with a ladle to hand.
3. In a large non stick pot, or saucepan with a lid, add the butter and sweat the onions down with the salt, on a low heat for around 10 mins, with the lid on. Add the crushed garlic and continue to cook for a further few more minutes. Add the risotto rice and coat well in the buttery onion mixture before upping the heat to high. Stir continually for 3 mins until the rice goes slightly translucent at the edges. Add all of the wine (it should fizz) and cook until the wine has absorbed.
4. Turn the heat down to medium and add a ladle of your simmering stock, stir until absorbed. Continue to add a ladle of stock one at a time and cook until each addition until you have one ladle of stock left. Add the asparagus along with the rest of the stock and cook until all the stock has been absorbed. Take off the heat.
5. Add the peas, lemon juice, lemon zest, fresh dill, Italian hard cheese and the goats cheese. Mix well and cover with a lid and leave for 5 mins. Finally uncover, season with salt and pepper and serve drizzled with extra virgin olive oil.

Asparagus, goats cheese & lemon tart

Asparagus, goats cheese & lemon tart

Let’s say goodbye to this bitterly cold Game of Thrones weather and hello to spring.
“Hello spring!”‘
To celebrate, I’ve created this rather zingy lemon and goats cheese tart for you to roll up, stuff in your mouth and swallow whole like a goose… Or not, each to their own.

Asparagus, goats cheese & lemon tart
Serves 4 / Hands on time 10 mins / Total time 30 mins / V
320g ready rolled puff pastry, trimmed to fit a 32cm baking tray
100g vegetarian soft goats cheese
Juice and zest of half a lemon
15g vegetarian Italian hard cheese or Parmesan*, grated
2 tbs plain or Greek yogurt
230g bunch of asparagus
Pomora extra virgin lemon oil

1. Preheat your oven to 200°C/fan 180°C/400°F/gas mark 6. Line a baking tray with baking paper and roll out the puff pastry. Trim the pastry to fit your baking tray and lie it on top of the baking paper directly on the tray. Using a sharp knife, lightly score a rectangle roughly 1 finger-width from the edge, then put to one side.
2. Using a fork, combine the soft goats cheese, yogurt, Italian hard cheese, lemon zest and lemon juice in a bowl until you have a thick but spreadable paste. Spoon out into the middle of your pastry. Using a butter knife evenely spread the mixture out to the scored edge being careful not to go over the line.
3. Arrange the asparagus on top of the goats cheese before seasoning with salt and pepper. Bake in the oven for 20 minutes until the edges of the tart turn golden brown.
4. Remove from the oven and leave to rest for five minutes before brushing the asparagus with lemon extra virgin olive oil. Serve warm with a mixed leaf salad.

Goats cheese & onion sausage rolls

Goats Cheese & Onion Sausage Rolls

I’ve actually never made sausage rolls before, they always seemed like so much effort, which I guess they are. I mean, you have to buy some puff pasty and wrap sausages in it… Okay so not hard at all. That being said, I wanted to jazz up my sausage rolls – not by actually making my own veggie sausages of course (ain’t nobody got time for that) but I thought I could just throw some caramelised onions and goats cheese at the problem? Hey, don’t be like that, have you ever tried making your own veggie sausages? Of course you haven’t… Oh you have? Well you’re weird and clearly have too much time on your hands.
Anyway, for those of you who have lives, just buy a pack of your favourite veggie sausages and enjoy them rolled up with sweet sticky onions, soft creamy goats cheese and buttery puff pastry. Scrummy.

Goats cheese & caramelised onion mini sausage rolls 
Makes 18 / Hands on time 40 mins / Total time 1 hr  / V
You’ll need: One large or two baking trays and a couple of sheets of baking paper
6 Cauldron Cumberland vegetarian sausages
320g puff pastry, I use Jus-Rol
125g vegetarian soft goats cheese
1 egg, beaten
For the caramelised onions
Knob of unsalted butter
1 large red onion, peeled and sliced
2 tsp sugar
2 tsp balsamic vinegar
Dijon mustard to serve (optional)

TIP: If you can’t be bothered to make your own caramelised onions, shop bought onion chutney will work just as well and shave off 25 minutes of the prep time.

1. Start by making the caramelised onions. Put a large frying pan on a medium heat and melt a generous knob of butter. Add the sliced onions and cook for 10-15 minutes or until softened, stirring occasionally to prevent burning. Once soft, add the sugar and the balsamic vinegar and continue to cook for a further 5 minutes. Take off the heat and put the onions to one side.
2. Preheat an oven to 200°C/180°fan/400F/gas mark 6. Roll out your puff pastry into a large rectangle shape (long enough to fit three sausages top to toe (see pic below). Place three sausages on the left side and the other three on the right, leaving plenty of room around them for filling. Using a sharp knife cut down the centre of the pastry and then brush the inside edge of each strip with beaten egg.
3. Spoon an even amount of caramelised onions (or shop bought onion chutney) on the inside edge of the sausages, followed by an even-ish layer of goats cheese (don’t worry about being too perfect, messy sausage rolls taste excellent).
4. So here’s the slightly tricky part. Take the inside edge (the inside you brushed with egg) fold it over the filling and the sausages and secure it to the pastry on the other side by squashing it down with your fingers. It will leave quite a messy seem, so roll your giant sausage roll over so that the seem is now on the bottom. Repeat with the other half, leaving you with two giant sausage rolls.
5. Score each giant sausage roll with a sharp knife creating a mini baguette effect and then divide each sausage roll into 9 (this is easier than it looks, you know there are three sausages in each roll, so before diving them up, feel for each sausage with your fingers and then focus on cutting each sausage into three). Don’t worry if they look a little squished and man-handled, they’re going to puff up beautifully in the oven. Also, if some of your filling spills out, just push it back in as best you can, doesn’t matter if they leak a little. Repeat this process with the other giant sausage roll until you have 18 mini rolls. (If you’re feeling frisky, why not try baking the two giant sausage rolls intact? I haven’t done it but it sounds like a pretty great idea if you ask me… Just a thought).
6. Anyway, brush each mini sausage roll with more beaten egg and transfer them to a couple of lined baking trays. Pop them in the oven for 20-22 minutes or until golden brown. Once cooked, leave them to cool for 5 minutes on the baking trays before transferring them to a cooling rack. Leave to cool or eat warm with a dap of Dijon mustard.

Mushrooms & goats cheese on toast

Mushrooms & Goats Cheese on Toast
Mushrooms & Goats Cheese on Toast
Mushrooms & Goats Cheese on Toast

Forget Brexit, forget Donald Trump, we have a bigger crisis on our hands people, brace yourselves, this news is horrifying and potentially life changing… Ready?

There is currently a courgette shortage…

CUE NATIONAL HYSTERIA!!!! Where’s Deliciously Ella?!!! Can someone check she’s not sitting in a corner somewhere, spiralizing her own fingers like some courgette deprived lunatic?
I mean, I like courgettes as much as the next person (actually I don’t, I find them slimy and horrible, that’s why I grate them into my recipes) but surely the lack of courgettes isn’t such a bad thing after all? Think about it, now all those spiralizing, clean eating freaks can stop fainting and eat a proper meal, because you know what tastes better than boiled strips of courgette? Literally anything but especially spaghetti! So stop pretending you’re gluten intolerant (because hardly anyone is) and boil up some delicious pasta why don’t you. Oh and whoever came up with the word ‘courgetti’ should be shot.
Anyway, as usual, this post has nothing to do with pasta or courgettes but the humble mushroom and one of my other favourite carbs, BREAD! I pretty much love anything on toast, especially Marmite but I found some left over goats cheese from Christmas and a couple of portobello mushrooms in my fridge and thought, yes! Enjoy.

Mushrooms & goats cheese on toast
Serves 2 / Hands on time 20 mins / Total time 20 mins / V
2 large portobello mushrooms, roughly sliced
2 cloves of garlic
60g soft vegetarian goats cheese
1 tsp unsalted butter
2 pieces of bread for toasting
2 sprigs fresh thyme
Pomora extra virgin olive oil to serve
2 poached eggs to serve (optional)

1. Roughly chop the mushrooms into strips and crush the garlic. In a large saucepan, heat and melt the butter on a medium heat. Once melted, add the mushrooms and cook down in the butter. If the butter absorbs quickly, add a dash of water to help the mushrooms steam. Cook for about 5 mins until the mushrooms begin to soften.
2. Add the garlic along with the thyme sprigs, give it a good stir and cook for a further 2 mins (again, add a dash of water if needed to help cook the mushrooms down).
3. Once the mushrooms start to look soft and cooked, add a third of the goats cheese and mix straight in. Season well with salt and pepper. Take off the heat and cover with a lid to keep the mushrooms warm.
4. Meanwhile toast the bread and poach the eggs (optional). Finally, discard the thyme sprigs and serve the mushrooms on top of your toast with the remaining goats cheese, a good drizzle of olive oil and a sprinkling of fresh thyme leaves.

Stuffed goats cheese figs with honey & lemon salad

Stuffed Goats Cheese Figs with Honey & Lemon Salad
Stuffed Goats Cheese Figs with Honey & Lemon Salad

Ordinarily I’m not a fan of fruit in savoury dishes – a raisin has no business being in a salad. However, I’m going to let the humble fig off this time, provided it’s teamed with goats cheese. Also, let’s be honest about figs, we all know they resemble a lady’s ‘rude area’. But they’re delicious, so stop laughing and stuff them with goats cheese.
Speaking of a lady’s ‘rude area’, my gorgeous best friend Rosie has just pushed a baby out of hers. Hooray! I’ve been crowned (yes crowned) godmother – which surely deserves a bit of a lactose induced tummy ache. I wonder if my crown is in the post yet? Must be… Welcome to the world baby Logan, have some goats cheese – babies love goats cheese.

Stuffed goats cheese figs with honey & lemon salad
Serves 2 / Hands on time 20 mins / Total time 25 mins /
V Gf
8 figs
120g soft vegetarian goats cheese
8 fresh rosemary sprigs
Extra virgin olive oil
2 handfuls of salad leaves
¼ cucumber, skinned and peeled
¼ lemon, zested
¼ red onion, thinly sliced
Handful of toasted pine nuts
2 tsp white wine vinegar
1 tsp extra virgin olive oil
½ tsp Dijon mustard
1 tsp runny honey
Lemon wedges to serve (optional)

1. Preheat an oven to 200°C/180°C fan/400F/gas mark 6. Slice the figs from the top to about halfway down in a cross – be careful not to cut too far down or you’ll cut your fig in half. Pinch the bottom of each fig gently to open the fig slightly.
2. Place the figs on a baking tray and roughly divide your goats cheese into eighths and stuff each fig with cheese using your fingers. Stuff a rosemary sprig into each, season with salt and pepper and drizzle with extra virgin olive oil. Bake in the oven for 20 mins.
3. Meanwhile, mix the leaves, cucumber, red onion and lemon zest in a bowl. Season with a bit of salt and put to one side. To make the dressing, simply mix the ingredients together until  well combined.
4. In a small frying pan, toast the pine nuts on a medium to high heat until golden brown – keep them moving or they’ll burn. Add to the salad along with the dressing.
5. Remove the figs from the oven, drizzle with extra virgin olive oil and honey and serve with the salad and a lemon wedge.
