Crunchy Fennel & Apple Slaw

This recipe is in collaboration with High Street TV I’m back, as promised, with another fresh veggie recipe using the Veggie Bullet. If you missed the last one, you can check it out here. Earlier in the week, we saw what was possible with the spiraliser blade on this nifty new machine. Today, we explore its shredding and slicing capabilities. I am a lover of coleslaw. It’s such an easy and delicious way to pack fresh, raw veggies into your diet. I’m a big fan of the three ingredient classic version, there’s a simple pleasure in mixing white cabbage and carrot with mayonnaise. I’m also partial to a vegan slaw, opting for oils to bring veggies together instead of eggs or dairy. However, the recipe I’m sharing with you today is probably the one I make the most – or some version of it, anyway. A good variety of veg mixed with yoghurt, lemon and fresh herbs. It’s unbeatable in terms of taste and texture, for me. It’s also easier to build up more interesting …

Watch A Movie OUTSIDE, IN BED with ibis Hotels and Brightons Big Screen

My first experience of Brightons Big Screen was in 2012. I can be 100% sure of that because I went there to watch the olympics. It cannot be disputed that those were held in 2012, therefore I can – for once in my forgetful life – state this fact with full conviction. Tickets were free, we all sat on the cold, hard floor and struggled to hear most of the audio and it was way over on the less glamorous side of the pier. Fast forward 5 years and we have ourselves a serious tourist attraction. Now, you’ll find the big screen in between Palace Pier and the Marina. It’s a great big gated area with a food truck and a huge bar and popcorn sellers and cocktail makers. There are deck chairs to sit on, or gorgeous wooden tables – or, as I had the pleasure of experiencing this weekend, ibis SweetBeds. Last Friday, I got dressed up all nice, told Tom to put a shirt on and gave him absolutely no indication of …

Chestnut Mushroom Bolognese with Sweet Potato ‘Spaghetti’

This recipe is in collaboration with High Street TV We all remember the NutriBullet, right? It’s been the must have piece of kitchen equipment for like.. 5 years? It came onto my radar after the Queens of ‘clean eating’ took the product under their wing in the early days of green smoothies, energy balls and from-scratch hummuses and pestos. While I have no desire to be affiliated with the clean eating world, I can appreciate a high speed blender as much as the next food obsessed millenial. It’s for this reason that I’m delighted to be involved in the #VegOut campaign for their brand new product, the VeggieBullet.. The VeggieBullet is a new 3 in 1 kitchen tool that slices, shreds and spiralises vegetables in what feels like record time. We’ll focus on the slicing and shredding tools in another recipe later this week, today we’re going to explore the machine’s spiralising powers. I’d be lying if I said this was an out of the box product. There’s a lot of set up and assembly …
