I’ve saved my favourite recipe for last. The joy of this dish is threefold. It’s cheap, it’s delicious, and you’re guaranteed to have the majority of the ingredients loitering in your pantry from the last time Pak’nSave had a sick deal on canned goods. It’s also a dish of infinite possibilities. Don’t have chickpeas? Literally […]

This hummus is perfect for when you’re skint and you clock that there’s a few dented cans of chickpeas lurking in the bargain bin at Pak ‘n Save. It is also good for those times when you’ve just arrived at 1am in the industrial area of a Greek city and you can’t find that key […]

That’s all I have to say about this, aside from please do yourself a solid and use this blessed creation under eggs/avocado/rocket/hot sauce, and atop bread/crackers/grains/everything you have.   Whipped herby feta 400g Greek feta […]

What do you do when your Sunday boiled potatoes feat. old mate mint just aren’t cutting it any more? Quadruple the greenery. This salad perfectly embodies my, “throw some herbs at it, make it fancy” vibe. The dream combo of mint, parsley, rocket, and chives coats the outside of the ‘taties, while the vinegar (/ […]

Nothing screams “WINTER!” like a salad with roasted, spicy, fried, and creamy elements. As you ease yourselves into a bitter, windy Wellington winter, and I ease myself out of a bleak, grey London one, we can cook this dish simultaneously across the waters and reach an equal peak of salad-induced cosiness. The crispy beans are […]

Bust out your pickles; let’s make a slaw. A slaw is one of those salads that involves very little work and very little cost, because, essentially, it’s just shredded cabbage.
