Here’s a gluten free veggie burger recipe the whole family will love. Halloumi is known for its strong, salty flavour, which complements the beautifully flavoured courgette perfectly. Both these ingredients are ideal for grilling on the BBQ, for bringing out even more flavour.

Chicken Jalfrezi

This rich, aromatic curry has lots of deep red sauce. Serve with boiled basmati rice and a Genius Pitta to mop up the sauce, and accompany with yoghurt or soya yoghurt.


  • 1 tbsp sunflower oil
  • 1 kg chicken thigh fillet, cut into thick slices
  • 570ml chicken stock
  • 2 large onions, finely diced
  • 2 red peppers, cut into strips
  • 6 garlic cloves
  • 5 cm root ginger, finely chopped
  • 3 fresh chillies, deseeded and finely diced
  • 1 tsp turmeric
  • 3 bay leaves
  • 3 tsp ground coriander
  • 3 tsp cumin seeds
  • 6 tsp paprika
  • 1 can chopped tomatoes
  • 1 bunch coriander leaves and stem, chopped
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 2 tsp Garam Masala


  1. Preheat the oven to 150c/ 300f/ gas mark 2
  2. Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a large casserole over a moderate heat until hot. Add a handful of the chicken to the pan, season and leave to stick to the base of the pan to brown. Turn and brown the other side only when the meat releases itself from the bottom on the pan.
  3. Repeat this process until all the chicken is cooked, loosening the browned cooking juices on the base of the pan between batches with a splash of stock or water. Add this to the browned meat. Add a little oil to the pan between batches.
  4. Season and fry the onions and peppers in 1 tbsp of oil until golden brown. Add the garlic, ginger, chilli, turmeric, cumin, ground coriander and paprika and gently fry for 30 seconds. Return the meat and the cooking juices to the pan. Over a low heat, stir the cooked tomatoes, coriander stems and sugar, top up with stock or water so the meat is covered. Cover with a lid and bring to the boil.
  5. Remove the lid and skim off any fat or scum on the surface. Replace the lid and cook the curry in the oven for 1 ½ hours, or until a piece of chicken can be cut easily with a fork. Remove the curry from the oven every 30 minutes to skim off any fat and add water as necessary, so that the meat is just covered.
  6. When the meat is cooked, stir in the Garam Masala, taste the sauce and season as necessary. Spoon onto warm plates and sprinkle with chopped coriander leaves.


Spanish Ham and Mushroom Croquetas

Tuck into our rich and warming gluten free croquetas, delicious for date night snacking, as a hot canapés with drinks or made slightly larger as a starter garnished with a crisp green salad.


  • 100g cured Spanish ham, finely diced
  • 50g mushrooms, finely chopped
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 40g unsalted butter
  • 60g corn flour
  • 500ml milk
  • ½ nutmeg, grated
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 4 slices white Genius bread, whizzed into fine breadcrumbs
  • 30g Parmesan, finely grated


  1. Heat the oil and butter in a medium sized pan over a medium heat. Gently fry the ham and mushrooms until light golden.
  2. Remove the pan from the heat and stir in the corn flour.
  3. Gradually stir in the milk, then return to the heat and continue to stir until the mixture thickens. Add the nutmeg and black pepper and continue to cook, beating it as it starts to boil, until smooth. Cook for another 5 minutes until the mixture holds its shape. Spread on a large plate and leave to cool. Cover with cling film and refrigerate for at least 2 hours to firm up.
  4. Put the beaten eggs into a shallow wide bowl, and the breadcrumbs and cheese into another wide dish. With floured hands, roll spoonfuls of the mixture into cylinders 5cm long, cover with beaten egg then roll in the crumb mixture until evenly covered. Shake gently to remove any loose breadcrumbs.
  5. Fill a large pan 1/3 full with the vegetable oil. Heat until a cube of bread browns in 30 seconds. Fry the croquetas in batches for a couple of minutes or crisp and golden all over, then lift out with a slotted spoon and drain on kitchen paper before serving immediately.
