Wild garlic pesto

Sorry for missing Friday’s post, I’ve been busy with exams and then work straight away! I was so excited the other week to accidentally stumble upon a whole hillside of wild garlic! I grabbed a big bunch of the leaves and carried them around in my bag, subsequently leaving a pungent garlic-y trail in my…

Garlic hasselback sweet potato

Watching the Sorted boys’ video (here X) on Hasselback potatoes really got my mouth watering, but I think my heart gave a little hiccup with the amount of fat, cream & cheese they slathered on to theirs (granted, they were very aware that it was a ‘special treat’ type food!), so I wanted to try…

(You’ll need a food processor for this one.) Ingredients: 1 can chickpeas, drained 4 tbsp tahini paste Juice of 1 lemon  plus the zest of…
