Grilled Cheese and Tomato Soup For One

To my fellow waifs and strays eating lunch on their own every day of their sad locked down little lives, this one goes out to you. I often catch myself having a hankering for something like tomato soup but simply cannot be arsed with the obligation to eat soup every day for a fortnight having made it in family-sized quantities. If you find yourself in the same position, I’ve got you. This is delicious. It makes one single serving, it took me half an hour and (as with pretty much everything I ever do) very little effort. Note before starting: you’ll need a stick blender or similar For the soup:1/2 an onion, finely chopped2 cloves garlic, minced10 cherry tomatoes, chopped300ml veg stockSplash of cream (optional) For the grilled cheese:2 slices bread (whatever you like best)A little slather of mayonnaise1 handful grated cheese (your fav, I used vegan smoked cheddar) 1 – Begin by starting the soup. Cook the onion in a teaspoon of butter on a low heat for 5-10 minutes until translucent. Add the …

The Gammonbert

Cold cuts and cheese, the two things you’re most likely to have floating around in the fridge a few days after Christmas. Yes, you’ve gotten through an entire wheel of stilton as a family, and all the remaining turkey has found it’s way into sandwiches and omelettes, but if your lot are anything like mine, there’s still plenty of ham and no ones touched some of the cheeses – I’m not sure how long camembert would last in our fridge realistically but I’m painting a picture here, so work with me. We’ll call this a “deconstructed grilled cheese” because sometimes it’s nice to use the wanky words and phrases that make you despise the human race as a whole, and really that kind of is what it is. A ham, pickle and mustard fried sandwich dipped in oozy, melty camembert. Bookmark this one for around about December 28th, my friends. The idea for this sandwich started in ALDI, when I picked up a camembert for no particular reason at all. I do this a lot, and …

The Cab

If somebody very important to you is more than fond of gammon and loves coleslaw (sometimes a little too much), it’s arguably your civic duty to build a sandwich containing the two and name it after them.  It’s only very recently that I’ve started eating and cooking with meat regularly again. I’ve been torn on whether or not I wanted that to be reflected on the blog because, at heart, I’m pretty sure I’m not much of a carnivore. Come January I’ll be full steam ahead with Veganuary and feeling all the pangs of guilt that I ever ate meat again at all. But, this is who I am, I change my mind about my fundamentals constantly, much to the dismay of those closest to me – I can be an incredibly difficult girl to keep up with. Since I am eating meat again, I might as well share that with you until I stop, but I want to go about it in what I see as a more responsible way, promoting only brands like …
