Great family meal, you can spice up the meatballs for adults with a little cayenne and serve with Greek yoghurt to which a tablespoon of toasted cumin seeds have been added. Quinoa can be substituted for the cous cous.
Another Nigella Lawson gem , this is a perfect dish for a cheaper cut of an expensive meat as there is no carving, the meat is so tender it just shreds so there is no waste.
She states it can be cooked for a shorter period of time, say 5 hours at gas mark 3 but I love the long low cooking as at a lower temp very little can go wrong, plus, the smell drives everyone wild for longer.
(Save any liquid left from cooking as this is concentrated stock and can be frozen and used for gravy.)
This is one of those dishes that taste sooo much better than it sounds. If the mention of prunes bring back nightmare memories of school dinners (prunes and cold custard Urgh!!), you could use dried apricots instead.
(Prep time includes cooling time)
You really don’t have to be a vegetarian to enjoy these tasty little burgers. Boiled white rice is a good substitute when gluten free breadcrumbs are not available. Chopped red pepper would also be a tasty inclusion.
A delicious falafel that is always a favourite as a quick snack or part of a main meal, and of course naturally gluten free. To make them even healthier they can be baked in an 180c oven for 5-20 mins.
I have tried many recipes for different variations of lemon surprise puddings, and delicious as they are, none of them transferred well to being gluten free. The egg whites are what helps in this recipe, however, it is the ban Marie that is key to its success.
A tasty alternative to plain hummus, the contrast in textures is as good as the taste If you can't get canned roasted peppers you can easily roast your own, the only difference being you will not have the delicious olive oil to drizzle over the hummus.
