Avocado Pasta

This is a quick and easy dish suitable for vegans, vegetarians, and days when you just don't feel like eating meat.   For two people you need:   2 ripe avocados 2 spring onions 1-2 cloves of garlic a handful of walnuts or pine nuts (or both) the juice of one lemon olive oil salt and pepper pasta of your choice   1. Toast the nuts. You can do this in a pan or in the oven. I recommend oven for walnuts and pan for pine nuts. In the oven: lay out the nu

Thorn's Quick & Easy Guacamole

A simple recipe today. Guacamole is my favourite dip, and it's so easy to make. No taco night is complete without it. You can do it in a food processor if you like, but if the avocado is ripe enough and you don't mind it a bit chunky, you can literally just mash it with a fork.     Ingredients:   2 ripe avocados 1 tomato lemon juice paprika powder chilli powder OR hot chilli sauce (sriracha or the like)     1. Slice the avocados in half and remove the pits. Use a spoon to dig the avo

Magpie's Pi-day Quiche!

Magpie's Pi-day Quiche!

Today is Pi-day! 3.14, that is. So, since it's Pi-day, Magpie decided that we should have quiche for dinner. This quiche turned out to be a bona fide protein bomb and so, so tasty!   You need:   300g chicken 300g smoked bacon about 4 medium sized mushrooms 1/4 of a large leek 4 eggs 1/4 litre of milk a handful of fresh thyme a handful of fresh chives salt and pepper pie crust (we cheated, because we're lazy people, and made it with

Very Garlicky Garlic Butter

This is super easy! All you need is fresh garlic, butter and a little bit of parsley (fresh is better, but dried is just fine).     Ingredients:   50 g butter 1 clove of garlic 1 tsp chopped or dried parsley   1. Soften the butter. If you use a spreadable butter that's part cooking oil you can skip this step, but don't use milk free butter replacements if you can help it; they tend not to melt as nicely on the bread.   2. Press the garlic in a garlic press and add it to the butter.

A Pie. With lots and lots of food in it.

A Pie. With lots and lots of food in it.

Magpie's got a case of the Man Flu, which means that he's mostly lying on the couch whimpering and watching QI. When I asked him what he wanted for dinner today, he said, 'Lots and lots of food,' with roughly the coherence of your average hungry baby bird. I figured I'd better fix him a calorie bomb to give him some energy.   So I went to the shop, had a look around and came up with a cunning plan.   I'm very fond of Shepherd's Pie and its cousin, Cottage Pie (which is made w
