Weekly Love: the one where summer came to an end
1. An end-of-summer vegan showstopper you all seem to be loving from One Pan Pescatarian (ad) right now: my Easy Ratatouille Spiral on pg 142.| 2. Another favourite from BBC Food (that was meant to go in One Pan but I did not get the recipe finished in time): my Korean Kimchee Pancake, served with a tangy dipping sauce. | 3. An Instagram-only lunch recipe that has also been super popular this week, my Grilled Nectarine, Halloumi & Prosciutto Salad with Elderflower Dressing. Get the recipe here! | 4. Discovering lots of new rural walks around the house including one with the best blackberries, elderflower and sloes. | 5. Brunch goals from One Pan: Cacio e Pepe Eggy Bread Crumpets (pg 58). | 6. Whipping up one of my all time favourite family recipes with the leftovers from our roast chicken (including the slow cooker stock): Leftover Roast Chicken Pie (find the recipe in my first book, Student Eats! #ad)
