The Ultimate Chilli Con Carne!

Making Chilli has become a bit of an obsession of mine. It’s one of my favourite meals to cook for so many reasons. The ease of chucking the ingredients into a pan and letting it slow cook for hours is brilliant, and the resulting tender, succulent meat and rich flavour is so satisfying.

Blood Orange, Avocado and Rocket salad!

My inspiration for this recipe was from a salad I had a while ago from ‘The Natural Kitchen’ in Aldersgate. That had rocket and pink grapefruit in it, and I’ve slightly adapted it in this recipe.

Ingredients (serves 6): 4 Cloves of garlic, finely chopped 2 stalks of… Continue reading Warming Kale, Orzo and White Bean Soup #7recipes7days
