Shallot Blossoms with paprika crème fraîche | Sabrina Ghayour (Bazaar: Vibrant Vegetarian Recipes)

These deep-fried Shallot Blossoms are so worth the chore. The savoury batter, spicy creates a delicious crispy coating that I’ve missed since KFC left my life. The shallots cook till they’re soft enough to eat and have lost that raw onion punch. If you think onion rings (x10,000) then you’re on the right track.

For all I read of Nigella – and seemingly everyone else – enjoying the mundaneness of peeling broad beans, I just cannot get on board with it. I buy the frozen broad beans that are already out of their pods, but to then have to cook and cool the beans and remove the ‘tough’ skin. I’m sorry but no.

Halloumi has definitely become the new mushroom risotto as the go-to vegetarian option. I don’t think that’s necessarily a bad thing. Halloumi is bloody delicious and a bad mushroom risotto can be a miserable experience. Salty and savoury – halloumi seems like a natural alternative to bacon and I’ve had it with many a vegetarian breakfast. I’ve also seen halloumi battered and fried as it’s a piece of cod. It shouldn’t work, but it does.
