  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 shallots, finely diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, diced

  • 200g shitake mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 sprig rosemary, remove leaves and discard stalk
  • 5 sage leaves, roughly chopped
  • 200ml coconut milk
  • 300g spaghetti, GF optional
  • 1 tbsp capers
  • 1 tsp marmite or nutritional yeast flakes (optional)

Equipment required:

  • Saucepan
  • Small frying pan

Heat the oil in a pan and add the shallots and garlic, sauté until translucent. Add the mushrooms and coat in the oil, cook until lightly browned. Add the herbs and sauté for a few more minutes to release the oils.

Add the coconut milk, bring everything to the boil and then reduce to a simmer for 5 minutes.

Meanwhile bring a pan of salted water to the boil and cook your pasta. I have used Waitrose gluten-free spaghetti, which is a really good gluten-free version.

Add the capers and marmite to the mushrooms and a splash of water if needed. Simmer for a further 5 minutes and turn the heat off. Add in the cooked pasta with a ladle of the cooking liquid and serve on either a sharing platter or in two bowls.

On a medium heat in small frying pan, heat the seeds until they are golden. Add these to the mushrooms and pasta with a drizzle of truffle oil, pinch of salt and good grind of black pepper.

  Flatbreads topped with spinach and egg

This is our take on a florentine pizza. Instead of the traditional pizza base we use flatbreads made from chickpea (gram) flour, which is coarser than normal flour and has a distinct nutty flavour that tastes, unsurprisingly, a lot like chickpeas. The bright green topping is made from spinach and butter beans, with a baked egg to finish.

Porridge with pumpkin and salted caramel

The pumpkin sauce in this recipe is like a subtly sweet compote, and it’s a great addition to your breakfast. With its smooth texture, it is delicious stirred into a bowl of hot porridge, along with some salted date caramel.
