Moroccan Lamb Tagine

There are many versions of lamb tagine in Morocco but this one is my absolute favourite! Cooked slowly in a rich tomato sauce with dates and apricots it sounds like it would be too sticky and sweet but it isn’t at all and whilst the flavours are rich it isn’t a heavy dish either. I…

Pea Pancakes

This is an adaptation of a recipe from a healthy food cafe in Australia that I had to prepare and shoot for a cookery book I helped produce last year (see pic below) but I can’t tell you how many times I have made it since then! I have changed the recipe quantities to improve…

You can serve them up with brown rice (I love Basmati Brown), Couscous, Quinoa, Caulirice or wholemeal flatbreads. I…
