Roasted Stuffed Marrow

The marrow is the not so distant relative of the courgette, only enormous. The wonderful thing about them is that they have the great taste of a courgette but because of how large they are, you can make a delicious and light summer meal with just one marrow that serves 4 people. Continue Reading

Creamy Tahini Lime Dressing

The thing that really makes a salad is not the tomato, the seeds or even the lettuce leaf – sorry, guys – it’s the dressing! I like to make a big batch of this dressing and keep it in the fridge for emergency salad situations or you know, like a Tuesday lunch time.

Ingredients
juice of 1 and ½ lime
2 tablespoons of tahini
1 garlic clove, finely chopped
1 teaspoon of honey
2.5 tablespoons of water

Method
In a small bowl, pour in the tahini, lime juice, garlic and honey and then stir to form a thick paste. Mix in the water one tablespoon at a time so you can control how thick the dressing is.
