Beer, Marmite + Black Treacle Gravy

Whether we like it or not, autumn fast approaches. In a matter of weeks, the only thing keeping you going Monday to Saturday will be the promise of your Sunday roast. Coupled perhaps with a Gilmore Girls marathon and a thimbleful or two of whisky to push down the deep sense of injustice that boils up the back of your throat each time you remember that we went in to lockdown last winter, sat inside through heatwaves, weren’t allowed to go on holiday and now here we are on the wrong side of the year once more… but I digress. This has been my go-to gravy for a couple of months now, I won’t make anything else. It’s particularly handy because it doesn’t rely on meat juices, so fits the bill when I’m making veggie roasts (as I’m often inclined to do). It’s deeply savoury and packs a punch of intense flavour – particularly delicious with cauliflower cheese. I struggled (as per) to get this one written down because I’m such a by-eye cook and …

Vegetarian Sausage and Marmite Casserole

I’ve decided in this – the second week of October – to accept that Autumn is our current reality. Freshly laundered clothes will no longer dry in a matter of hours, beer gardens are cancelled until further notice, darkness reigns on the way too and from work but, most importantly, the le creuset is back on top of the cooker and ready to make me feel better. You’ll have to excuse the potentially poor formatting in this recipe, I’m in between laptops and using the app but wanted to get it out into the world before I forget. It’s a quick, cheap, easily repeatable vegetarian meal – and I know that’s what you come to me for. Serves 4 2 carrots / 4 potatoes / 1 onion / 1 leek / 4-8 vegetarian sausages / 1 litre stock / 2 heaped tbsps plain flour / 1 heaped tsp soft dark brown sugar / 1 heaped tbsp marmite Cook sausages according to pack instructions (I use Quorn frozen, 18 mins at 180) Peel and roughly chop …

Marmite Chocolate Crisps

Have I gone too far this time? I mean yeah, probably. This one is not going to go down as crowd pleasingly as marmite roast potatoes and cheese and marmite pasta, it’s niche AF and you really are going to either love it or hate it. Saltiness? Check. Bitterness? Check. Pure savoury deliciousness? Check. A brand new flavour that’s going to slightly confuse but overall excite your brain? Double check. This is the kind of thing that goes down in history. “Do you remember that time we went to Cate’s and she gave us those crisps that were dipped in marmite chocolate? God damn it, those were bizarrely amazing and addictive”. I feel like some of you are gonna straight up hate me for having the audacity to even suggest that you mix marmite and chocolate. That’s cool, it’s not gonna be for everyone. It is for me though. Oh, boy is it for me. 100g good quality dark chocolate 1 tsp marmite 2 small packets ready salted ridged crisps Put the marmite and chocolate …
