Tortilla Valenciana (2)

This spinach omelette is very popular in Valencia. Its good served warm or cool, cut into quarters, with some piping hot chips fried in olive oil and a tomato and onion salad. It’s from ” The Cooking of Spain” by Elizabeth Luard.

Keralan Egg Roast (4)

An easy egg curry from ” Fresh Flavours of India ” by Das Sreedharan. When i lived in Stoke Newington I had two of his Rasa restaurants within a 15 minute walk. Although I didn’ t eat there often ( what a missed opportunity…) I can honestly say it was the best South Indian food I have ever eaten in the UK. I serve this with a spinach curry alongside and some rice or naan.

Squash, Kale and Goat Cheese Frittata (4)

Another delicious recipe from ” New Kitchen Basics” by Bristol based chef and food writer Claire Thomson. It is my go to cookbook of the moment and everything i have cooked from it is tasty and relatively easy. You can use sweet potato instead of the squash if you like.

Masala Omelette (2)

This is another recipe from my current favourite cookbook – Claire Thomson’s ” New Kitchen Basics” which i have adapted for 2 greedy adults. Its best cooked as a separate omelette for each person but you can make one bigger one and cook for a bit longer.

Eggs with Tomatoes and Cumin (2)

Eggs with Tomatoes,Moroccan style. It can be served traditionally with Moroccan bread, or with some homemade oven chips. Its very moreish so  double the number of eggs if you want something more filling . If  preferred  you can peel and deseed the tomatoes, but i often dont bother.The recipe is from ” Moro: The Second Cookbook” by Sam and Sam Clark
