I was inspired by a recipe I saw the other day and was really in the mood for soup. This recipe combines my new found love of making dough and a hearty and flavourful combination of vegetables in the soup to form the perfect dish.
The dough bites sliced in half resembled english muffins and soaked the butter up like a sponge. They were great for dipping in the soup just by themselves as well!
Hope you all enjoy!
I remember having tomato sauce blended with pesto for the first time in a restaurant and it was fantastic. Salty, nutty notes from the pesto really balanced out the acidity of the tomatoes.
I recently made a spinach pesto and happened to have quite a bit more so I decided to make the sauce I remember loving some time ago.
Hope you all enjoy !
Here`s my Spinach Pesto recipe - you could always make your own or use store bought in place of my recipe :)
As I looked through various Mexican rice recipes this one stuck out to me for the fact that the ingredients were blended. As I thought of what I'd do a little differently I decided it was a Mexican Food night! Burritos are a great way to incorporate rice with these flavours and the Avocado Cream complements them PERFECTLY! Rich and zesty, the warm / cool balance is quite wonderful!
I garnished with a delicious Pico. Pico De Gallo is the perfect burst of freshness to cut the richness of the cheesy, beany burrito.

This was quite possibly the best zucchini dish I've ever created! So flavourful and really elegant looking for being pretty simple.
The original recipe used mint and lamb which I obviously removed and replaced with parsley and white beans. I mixed Panko bread crumbs with the Parmesan topping which I think gave it a great, salty crunch!
I absolutely love pasta especially when using fresh tomatoes in the sauce. This particular pasta is ridged which when tossed with the sauce allows the sauce to seep into those ridges and really cling to the pasta. Very hearty and loads of flavour!
Give it a try!
