The recipes I want to write up to go on here are currently as long as my forearm (my arms are pretty short but that's still too long by my standards!). I've been meaning to post about my recipes that are featured on The Debrief in FOR-EVER but I keep getting distracted by tacos, things on babs and homemade face masks that won't stay put. So here we are- I've collected all four pieces I've written so far for The Debrief for everyone that asks me now and then for a red lentil dhal recipe or what to cook for barbeques- it's all here baby! (Just click on the title of the recipes to jump over to the link).
The first piece I wrote was for that very specific last day before pay day mood that descends more across the entire last week of the month. I wanted a recipe you could prepare for friends without anyone quite knowing you only had a pound or so left in your purse. As ever, dhal came to my rescue.
For these mole poblano tacos I was focusing on food for picnics that will put iceberg lettuce in the corner, offering a (brief) break from my summer diet staple of IPA beer, Turkish bread and corner shop hummus.
It turns out obsessively taking photos of every vegan meal I get to eat can pay off! For National Vegetarian Week I put together five of my favourite vegan and vegetarian restaurants in the UK. As with the rest of Guac I tried to make it realistic so I also included a few places you'd maybe want for birthday times and not every day (Mildred's) and omnivore-friendly places like The Clapton Hart, where you're far more likely to persuade a crowd of friends to get Sunday lunch as opposed to convincing them tofu tastes just like roast chicken or something similarly ridiculous.
You'll probably recognise the photos from this piece from my Tour de France post a few weeks back- I included the recipes my parents put together so if you want to try making any of the food from those photos this is the place to head.
Wow, getting this to-do list done feels good, I might even approach completing it by the end of the year at this rate!
