Spring Onion Pancakes & Chilli Dipping Sauce

Made using leftovers from keema curry (plain flour), meatless farm mapo tofu bowls (chilli oil) and meatless farm teriyaki meatballs (sesame oil) | 1 hour


  • 250g plain flour (+1 teaspoon of plain flour)
  • 200g freshly boiled water 
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil 
  • 2 bunches of spring onions
  • Pinch of salt 
  • 1 tablespoon of sesame seeds 

Dipping sauce 

  • 1 teaspoon crispy chilli oil
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil 
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce 
  • 1 teaspoon vinegar (rice wine / apple cider) 
  1. Empty the flour into a large mixing bowl and stir in a pinch of salt. Mix in the freshly boiled water to make a dough. Bring the dough together then knead for about 10 - 15 minutes until it forms a lovely smooth dough (It will seem VERY sticky.. But it will come together, have faith. Don’t be tempted to add more flour because the pastry won't be crispy or flakey when cooked if you do so - if you have a freestanding mixer with a dough hook attachment, use it as it will save you a lot of time!)  Roll the dough into a ball, wrap in clingfilm and rest for at least 30 minutes. 
  2. Make the dipping sauce whilst the dough is resting by mixing all the ingredients together.  Set aside. 
  3. Finely slice the spring onions and mix the sesame oil together with a teaspoon of flour to make a paste. 
  4. Unwrap the dough and slice into 4 equal parts and roll them into balls. Take a ball (keep the others covered by clingfilm on a plate) and smush down with the palm of your hand to slightly flatten the ball. Grab a rolling pin and roll the dough out into a disc that's roughly 15cm wide and about 3mm thick. Spread a bit of the sesame paste over the disc and sprinkle over some sesame seeds. Roll the disc into a long sausage shape then roll in on itself to make a circle .. like a snail. Then flatten that snail shape down with the palm of your hand again and roll out into a pancake shape about 5mm thick. Repeat this process with the remaining dough (Leep a sheet of baking paper between each one so they don't stick together). 
  5. To cook the pancakes .. Gently fry them with a little oil  for about 3 minutes on each side until crispy in a non stick frying pan set over a medium heat. Serve immediately with the dipping sauce.

Loaded Sausage Nachos

Made using pork sausage leftovers (sausage fennel linguine / mustard sausage meatballs), tortilla wraps (steak / fish / salmon tacos or lamb gyros), cheddar cheese (cheese burger / meatless farm cheese burger / meatless farm quesadilla burger) | 35 minutes - Serves 2-4 


  • 2 pork sausages 
  • 2 large tortilla wraps (or 4 small ones) 
  • Chillies - 1 red, 1 green

  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika 
  • 1 teaspoon chilli powder
  • Fresh coriander 
  • 1 lime 
  • 1 teaspoon of caster sugar 
  • 1 tablespoon of white wine vinegar
  1. Preheat the oven to 180c.. Slice the wraps into triangles and place in a mixing bowl. Add half the paprika and half the chilli powder, season well and drizzle over a little olive oil. Toss the tortilla triangles in all the spices and oil so they are well coated. Spread out over 2 baking trays and bake for 15 minutes, turning halfway through. Remove from the oven and allow to cool. 
  2. Make an incision in the sausages and remove the meat from the skin. Tip the meat into a frying pan set over a medium heat along with the remaining chilli powder and paprika and fry for 10 minutes, breaking the meat up with a spoon until the meat is cooked and starting to go a little crispy. Remove from the heat. 
  3. Make the pickled onions and salsa. Slice the red onion in half. Slice one half into strips and finely slice the other half into little chunks. Place in 2 seperate bowls. Squeeze a little lime over the strips and cover with boiled water. Stir in a tablespoon of white wine vinegar, a teaspoon of sugar and a pinch of salt. Set aside to pickle. 
  4. Finely slice the tomato and a handful of coriander and mix in with the finely sliced onion. Season well and squeeze over the lime. Set aside. 
  5. Statter the crispy tortilla triangles onto a baking dish, top with the spicy sausage and the grated cheese. Place in the oven for roughly 5 minutes until the cheese has melted. 
  6. Make the guacamole. Slice the avocado in half, carefully remove the stone and scoop the flesh out into a bowl. Using a fork mash the avocado until smooth, season well, drizzle over a little oil and a squeeze of lime. Finely slice the chillies. 
  7. Remove from the oven and scatter over the salsa, pickled onions and chillies. Dollop over the guacamole and yoghurt / sour cream. Garnish with any remaining coriander leaves and serve immediately.

Mozzarella & Roasted Tomato Arancini Balls with Speedy Tomato Chilli Jam

Made using leftover risotto rice (cauliflower risotto / giant mushrooms stuffed with risotto and mozzarella), baby plum tomatoes and mozzarella cheese (giant mushrooms stuffed with risotto and mozzarella) | 1 hour (plus chilling) - Serves 2


  • 150g risotto rice 
  • 1 small brown onion 
  • 2 cloves of garlic 
  • 250g baby plum tomatoes 
  • Half a ball of mozzarella
  • 30g cream cheese
  • 1 small knob of butter 
  • 200 ml dry white wine 
  • 450 ml vegetable stock 
  • 55g panko breadcrumbs 
  • 1 tablespoon of white sugar 
  • 1 red chilli 
  • 1 teaspoon of red wine vinegar
  • 1 egg 
  • 2 tablespoons of flour 
  • Vegetable oil for cooking 
  1. Peel and finely slice the onion, crush the garlic cloves, finely slice the red chilli and slice the tomatoes in half.
  2. Heat a little oil in a non stick pan over a medium low heat. Add the chopped onion and cook gently for 15 minutes until very soft. Add the garlic and cook for another 2 minutes. Turn the heat up slightly and add the risotto rice, stir so that the rice is coated in the oil. Pour in the wine and stir, allow the wine to soak into the rice. 
  3. Gradually add the vegetable stock, stirring after each addition and waiting for the stock to be absorbed by the rice before adding the next ladle of stock. Repeat until all of the stock has gone. Stir in the cream cheese and a knob of butter, season well and decant the risotto into a dish. Cover and leave to cool, then refrigerate for at least an hour (or overnight).
  4. Whilst the risotto is cooling, roast the tomatoes. Tip the tomatoes into a roasting dish and drizzle over a little olive oil. Roast for 30 minutes in a hot oven at 180’c. Remove from the oven and allow to cool.
  5. Place half of the roasted tomatoes in a saucepan set over a medium heat along with the chilli, add a splash of vinegar and a teaspoon of caster sugar. Stir and cook for 10 minutes until jammy. Remove from the pan and allow to cool. 
  6. Take the risotto out of the fridge. Get 3 shallow bowls. Put the breadcrumbs in 1 bowl, flour in another and beat the egg in the third. Season the breadcrumbs well. 
  7. Spoon a tablespoon of cold risotto into your hand and flatten it out. Place a roasted tomato in the middle and a bit of mozzarella, spoon a bit more risotto over the mozzarella and tomato then mould into a ball to encase the cheese and tomato. Roll the ball in the flour, then the egg then coat in the seasoned breadcrumbs. Set aside and repeat until you have used all the risotto, tomato and mozzarella. These are your arancini balls.
  8. Fry the arancini balls… Get a deep, high sided saucepan (or use a deep fryer if you have one!) Pour in roughly 400ml of vegetable oil and bring to a high heat. You will know when the oil is ready if you drop in a little bit of bread and the bread sizzles and starts to go crispy. Reduce the heat of the hob to medium. Carefully lower 1 - 2 balls into the hot oil and fry for 5 minutes, turning occasionally until the ball is golden brown all over. Carefully remove from the pan with a slotted spoon or tongs and place on a baking tray that has a wire rack laid over it (this will stop the breadcrumbs going soggy) Keep warm in the oven until you have cooked all the balls.   
  9. Serve the balls with the tomato chilli jam and parmesan shavings if you like.

Feta, Kale and Courgette Fritters

Mix everything together until well combined. It will look like a really chunky pancake batter. 
  2. Heat a little oil in a large nonstick frying pan over a medium heat. Dollop in the fritter mix and smush down a little with the back of the spoon (you don’t want to overcrowd the pan, maybe do 2-3 at a time) Cook for roughly 3-4 minuets, until golden, then carefully flip over and cook the otherside. Keep warm in a warm oven until you have cooked all the fritters (you should end up with around 6) 
  3. Mix together the yogurt, harissa or chipotle in a small bowl with a drizzle of olive oil. 
  4. Bring a saucepan of water to a boil then reduce to a simmer. Crack the eggs into 2 small cups.

Ginger and Lemon Infusions

Made using leftovers from our Speedy Asian Fishcakes. 


  • Fresh Ginger
  • Fresh Lemon 
  1. Peel the ginger with a teaspoon. Do this by scraping away the skin of the ginger with the edge of the spoon, it is a lot more effective than a traditional peeler and it stops you from wasting a lot of the ginger. Finely slice the ginger with a sharp knife or use a mandoline (be very careful if using a mandoline!) 
  2. Boil the kettle. Slice the lemon into rounds and place in your favourite mug with some ginger. Pour the freshly boiled water over the ginger and lemon. Stir and allow to infuse for a few minutes before sipping. 

This infusion can be enjoyed cold too. It is super refreshing in the morning. Fill a bottle with water and add the lemon and ginger to the bottle. Leave in the fridge overnight and enjoy in the morning.
