Effortless Baked Eggs

​I have a dog-eared, much loved copy of Nigella Lawson’s ‘How to Eat’. The spine is definitely broken in a few places, so that it falls on some of my favourite dishes. One of the most thumbed sections is the ‘fast food’ chapter. Here, Nigella describes a series of recipes for the cook in a hurry. It includes – under directions for a 10 minute, gooey chocolate pudding – the fabulous line ‘before you’ve even taken your coat off…’

Now, I’m not suggesting you stand in your winter parka whilst you throw this dish together. But, I love the idea of food that takes you two minutes to throw in a pan as you come in from work and will then simmer away whilst you get yourself settled for the evening ahead. This egg dish definitely ticks that box!

Walnut & Butter Bean Hash

Whilst I was planning this series of easy but healthy comfort food recipes I was on holiday. It was a pretty cold half term week in Copenhagen and we were staying in an apartment with a tiny and very basic kitchen. This recipe made for a very satisfying evening meal accompanied by some gorgeous Danish dark rye bread. In my book anything that can be rustled up in a basic apartment using limited ingredients definitely counts as easy. I decided then and there that I absolutely wanted to share it with you all.

Roasted Brassicas

I spent years hating Brussel sprouts until I discovered that roasting gave them a whole new flavour. Roasting cabbage removes some of the bitterness and the vegetable takes on a whole new favour. This works particularly well with brussels and kalettes as the outer leaves quickly crisp.
If like me you are not a fan then I would urge you to give this simple recipe a try.
