Celebrating traditional Irish foods and bringing them bang up to date with these Cabbage, Potato, Pesto & Bacon Fritters to celebrate St Patrick's Day! The recipe is below - enjoy ☘️💚 Recipe for 8-10 Fritters 1. Bring 500g peeled, quartered potatoes to the boil in salted water and cook for about 10 mins. Drain well to ensure no extra water is present and mash. 2. Cook 125g bacon lardons (or rashers in small pieces) until brown then drain on kitchen paper. 3. Cook 180g thinly sliced cabbage in the same pan without wiping (3 minutes or so until slightly softened). 4. Add the ingredients, including 3tbsps of green pesto to a large bowl and mix well. With wet hands form the mix into round discs about ½ inch thick. 5. Heat a pan and add some oil (rapeseed is good due to its a higher burning point). Cook the fritters in batches (keeping cooked ones warm in a very low oven) on medium for 3 minutes or so on each side until they are golden brown. 6. Serve immediately topped with the optional garnish of some Greek yoghurt and a sprinkling of spring onion.

The simplest of speedy suppers this evening. I have an eye infection and I am just generally under the weather and feeling a bit sorry for myself (that won't last long). Something that has become a regular in my kitchen on busy days and days like this is supper this evening. A quick blender sauce of garlic, chilli, fresh coriander (lots of), curry powder and coconut milk. Blitzed until super smooth and seasoned to taste. Brought just to before the book, I then add prawns (pork or chicken would do well here too) and cook until pink. Done! Today I added spinach too. A squeeze of lemon brightens it and it is good to go. Do you say supper or dinner? It is supper for me at home and dinner when I go out I think 😂 And what are you having this evening? . . #homecookedmeal#speedysupper#easycooking#healthyrecipes#prawns#shrimps#irishfoodbloggers#londonbloggers
Hope everyone is having a glorious Mother's Day 😊💐💚! Maybe, like us, you also took a moment to remember all the other female figures in our lives who cast a warm maternal eye over us - the aunts or Godmothers who never forget our important occasions, the friends of our Mums who give wise advice, an older female friend who shares her life experiences while never being patronising. And after all the boxes of chocolate have been devoured and relished, what's better than to start this March week with a Shirazi salad, simple to prepare yet elegant and vibrant. Dice cucumber, tomatoes and red onion into cubes. Add mixed chopped mint, black pepper and lemon juice, sprinkle pomegranate seeds and drizzle green pesto over the top. Garnish with strips of cucumber and enjoy!
