Delicious midweek meal!
One of my most favourite soups!
This recipe is from What to Eat and How to Eat It: 99 Super Ingredients for a Healthy Life by Renée Elliott.
This is one of my favourite mid-week dinners. Incredibly easy to make yet BIG on flavour (and when I say big, I mean Kanye ego kinda of big!).
The whole family are salmon-lovers here so this is our go-to dinner at least once a week and particularly on the weekend.
Christmas is the time for friends and family to get together and as the 'hostess with the mostess', I love nothing more than having everyone round my maison to celebrate the festive season.
We love entertaining here and it's been a month of partying this November from my birthday (which has been dragged out for pretty much most of the month-well you only turn 35 once right?!... to my cousin's epic 21st birthday party on Saturday night).
These chickpea or white broad bean patties or rissoles are very popular and much enjoyed in the Middle East. They are the national dish of Egypt where falafel is also called talamia and are welcome at any time: breakfast, lunch or supper.
Lentil soup was the ancient Greeks favourite winter soup and has been made since the Bronze Age in Egypt and India. ‘Faki’ is now considered “poor man's” soup because it is inexpensive to make and very filling, however, it is nutritious and tasty and unlike other pulses, lentils do not need overnight soaking and can be bought easily in packets and tins.
