I’ve spotted some cracking stuff on the internet recently. Many of these links I’ve posted on Twitter and my Facebook page, but here’s a summary of the best articles, recipes and information I’ve seen.
- Cooking with seaweed: First up these a-Mazing looking seaweed recipes from Ottolenghi. Wonderful, wonderful food and I also love his sensible advice that “the secret to enjoyment is simply getting the dressing right and taking the plunge”.
- Honest bread: Great piece from John Birmingham on bread, honesty and supermarkets. The selling of “freshly baked bread” at Coles or Woolies is marketing fluffery. As he says “Sourdough is not an easy bread to bake. You cannot run it up in a couple of hours using industrial mass production methods with semi-skilled labour.”
- One pot pasta: I am intrigued by this little recipe, pointed out to me by Jude Dodd. The pasta and sauce are cooked in the same pan. I haven’t tried it yet, but will do soon, although I’d tweak the recipe, as it’s not vegetable heavy enough for me.
- A healthier roast dinner: Lucy has written a gorgeous piece for The Guardian on healthier roast dinners. It also features one of our recipes from the latest An Honest Kitchen.
- Savoury porridge: I’ve been throughly enjoying savoury versions of porridge recently and I’m now keen to try 101 Cookbooks Miso Oat Porridge. Lovely flavours and I do like the idea of serving with thinly shaved radish and toasted walnuts.
- Making vegetable pickles: Brilliant little guide from Mummy I Can Cook on how to sweet-Asian-pickle anything. It’s a recipe template, together with some lovely combinations and ideas.
