Mushroom & Spinach Breakfast Fry

Mushrooms are the only food which I don’t like. The taste. The texture. The smell. Ugh.

Ingredients 5 medium mushrooms per person 2 leaves of kale or a handful of baby spinach 1 chilli, cut into large pieces (or use a few extra types of...

Roast Chilli Dip

Drew loves chilli so I whipped up a healthy, preservative free dip for him to enjoy with crackers over the xmas period as an alternative to all of the cheesy, dairy based dips we’d been eating.
