Nigel Slater’s recipes for baked ricotta with roasted beetroot, and miso-glazed fruit buns

We peeled the skin from tiny, baked beetroots still warm from the oven and dunked them into a quivering soufflé of ricotta, parmesan and thyme. Actually “soufflé” is the wrong word – it was simpler than that; a shallow pudding without the trauma of collapse. Just a soft, fragrant, light and savoury cloud of egg, herbs and cheese. Those langoustines were simply tossed in olive oil and roasted for a few minutes in a very hot oven. We could have roasted chicken wings or steamed a net of mussels, anything not to involve the cold steel of knife or fork. Yotam Ottolenghi recipes.

Vegan Lasagne with Lentils & Spinach Pesto - Rebel Recipes. As you know, I’m naturally drawn to spices; Indian and Middle Eastern food is what makes my belly happy and my soul excited, so I tend to fill my days with nothing but these delicious dishes (why not check out my favourite Indian Inspired Fluffy Chickpea Omelettes created with Spiced Tomatoes) but it also means that sometimes I can forget just how delicious Mediterranean food can be.

Vegan Lasagne with Lentils & Spinach Pesto - Rebel Recipes

I particularly love Italian flavours – they are renowned for not only their quality cooking but by their ultimate passion and communal rituals and love they pour into every dish. They also utilise home-grown produce, (which is something that is super close to my heart) that is just bursting with fresh farm-to-table flavour and authenticity. But it’s been absolutely years since I last ate or even made lasagne, so I just knew that had to change ASAP. Peanut Butter and Jelly Cheescake Bars.

Yotam Ottolenghi's recipes for summery green side dishes

Yes, green vegetables weren’t my children’s first dinner choice when they were very young, but, as they get older, they take much less encouragement at least to try them. The thing about green food is, it tells you where it’s going to take you, depending on where it lands on the colour spectrum: deeper shades mean it’s likely to be complex and earthy, while lighter ones tend to be more vibrant and fresh. Camera & Clementine. With the little bit of heat we have greatly received over the last couple of days, all sorts of wild green plants have sprung to life, including stinging nettles.

They have been used in Swedish baking for centuries and a recipe for kronans kaka (crown cake) was first published in 1903. Cakes made with potato are moist due to the starch but can be rather dense. Anna Jones' recipes for charred cauliflower and grilled spring salad. The days and weeks at home have lost their definition. Cooking helps to de-blur the days, adding variety, and recently that’s involved a lot of barbecued veg. These cauliflower steaks are a favourite: brushed with honey and smoked paprika, then charred and topped with a shock of punchy green chimichurri, South America’s answer to salsa verde.

There has also been barbecued salad: the grill lends smokiness to spring veg (which are usually treated more delicately), while the yoghurt ranch dressing, which I’ve been putting on everything, brings it all together. What day is it again?

Smitten kitchen – Fearless cooking from a tiny NYC kitchen. Yotam Ottolenghi's recipes for lockdown. After the first few minutes of boiling, spaghetti are just stringy strands that you really wouldn’t want to eat. But at about the seven-minute mark, things start to change: the strands begin to yield and soften, before, eventually, they give in and give way, ready to be sauced up and spruced up. The past few months have felt a bit like this, too, as the world was thrown into hot water and told to change its form.

We may not have reached that seven-minute mark quite just yet, but our ability to adapt and acclimatise gives me hope that we soon will. For now, though, the kitchen is our safe space, even if the question “What do I want for dinner?” Has now changed to: “How do I make do with what I have?” Remember, recipes aren’t sacred; they are only there to guide and support you on your mealtime journeys.
