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 …

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 …

Eggs with Broad and Runner Beans

Is that a boring title? It’s a boring title. I was going to call it green eggs and then I decided that was too non specific and nobody would be able to find it on the interwebs and there was no ham so people might be disappointed so.. here we are. This is a recipe making very good use of two lovely green things that are in abundance in the UK at this time of year (broad beans and runner beans) with an egg in the mix to make it a proper meal. These beans are the sort of things that allotment owners might find themselves drowning in at the moment if they’ve had a particularly successful year. Double podding broad beans is a labour of love, there are no two ways about it, so this might not be a 15 minute meal (although it shouldn’t take you much longer than 20, in fairness). It is, however, incredibly simple and requires just the tiniest of food shops. A couple of different vegetables and an egg …
