  • Halloumi and roasted vegetable tart

    Halloumi and roasted vegetable tart recipe

    29th April 2021The Delicate Diner

    A very delicious and easy halloumi and roasted vegetable tart that uses a vibrant Belazu tapenade and ready-made puff pastry for the base making this an ideal quick dinner for midweek. I roasted my vegetables for extra flavour, adding the asparagus and halloumi towards the end so that they were cooked to perfection. As ever, there are no rules – go for the flavours you like and use the veggies that are lurking in your fridge that need eating. A tomato sauce base would work just as well with this – as would a cheesy sauce! INGREDIENTS (Serves 4 easily)1…

  • Wild garlic and pecorino pesto

    Two ways with wild garlic – a pesto and a butter

    11th April 2021The Delicate Diner

    Wild garlic is the early herald of summer days ahead, that fragrant green leaf that can be freely foraged in woodlands. For me, wild garlic is always the precursor to asparagus, which is proving to be late this year due to the continuing cold weather! Below are two lovely recipes for wild garlic, a pesto and a butter, both of which can be frozen. The pesto is made extra special with the use of walnut-leaf wrapped aged pecorino from The Tuscan Farmshop; they deliver nationwide, so why not treat yourself to this vegetarian-friendly Italian delight! WILD GARLIC & WALNUT-LEAF PECORINO…

    British Pie Week: Butternut squash, mushroom and chestnut filo pie recipe

    25th February 2021The Delicate Diner

    This is my easy vegetarian filo pie recipe for those in a hurry. I love the luxury of a pie, but I don’t always want the heaviness that shortcrust or butter pastry can bring. This pie is perfect for an alternative – layers of crisp filo pastry with a delicious filling of the earthy flavours that I love so much, roasted butternut squash, sage, mushrooms, and chestnuts. If you don’t have the exact ingredients, don’t worry – use whatever you have in the fridge, and make the flavours your own. INGREDIENTS (Serves 4)1 packet of filo pastry1 butternut squash, peeled…
