Bulgur Salad With Roasted Vegetables

Roasted Vegetables

Whenever I want an easy lunch I always make double quantities for dinner the night before. What easier way to make up a lunch than to grab out a tray of prepared roasted vegetables and my lunch is ready in minutes. Why not try making this bulgur salad with roasted vegetables?

It’s never a hardship to prepare extra vegetables when I’m in a food preparation groove at the sink. More often than not I’ll have a couple of extra hands at the sink who are willing to help out with peeling anyway so why not make the most of them? Read More

Warming Soup

After 5 days in a row at the allotment, I’m taking a break today. It has been great to get back to work, even if it’s a bit hard going at the start of the year. We’ve been adding to our raised beds, changing the format of the polytunnel, and much more. This warming soup has been on the go all week. I made a couple of batches. The gentle heat instantly starts working as soon as I have a bowl in my hand, and the fresh bitter greens along with citrus hit from the lemon is a real change to a classic thick blended soup.

The key to making the soup last is to add the greens just before serving, then a decent squeeze of fresh lemon juice. The base of the warming soup will keep for a little bit longer that way and you keep the fresh, vibrant green colours in the broth.Warming Soup - Wholesome Ireland - Caitriona Redmond Read More

Grilled Turkey Wrap With Pesto

I recently had the opportunity to work with a piece of kit from Tefal called the OptiGrill. I have to emphasise I am under no obligation to share my recipes here on the blog. However, I am genuinely impressed with the grill; how it cooks food, how I was able to use it for many versatile meals, and it has even converted my other half to cooking at home more.
