Abel and Cole's Cauliflower and Three Cheese Comfort Supper


Cauliflower Cheese
Abel and Cole very kindly sent me a copy of their new cookbook recently (see above) which certainly helped me get over the disappointment of finding out they don't yet deliver in my area- one of the downsides of living in Cornwall I suppose. So thank-you Abel and Cole, it was a welcome surprise during a very stressful time.

The extension and ensuing chaos (dust, bits of insulation all over floor, no working boiler, a possible damp problem in our garage....) is really starting to get to me. Not to mention the weather! It seemed the rest of the UK had a lovely weekend, when we were in the midst of drizzly murky darkness. I couldn't believe the gorgeous weather at the Oval watching the last Ashes match. We're not that far from London down here but it was poles apart. Anyway, comfort was needed and came in the form of this delicious supper from the Abel and Cole recipe book combining two of my favourites, macaroni cheese and cauliflower cheese. I also love the fact that the cookbook uses 'mug and dollop measurements' - I really couldn't be bothered to get my scales out!! I can't wait to try out some more of their recipes.

Ingredients:
1 Cauliflower cut into florets
2 Onions, chopped
500g Macaroni
3 knobs of butter
3 heaped TBSP Flour
2 mugs of milk
1 dollop of English mustard
1 1/2 mugs grated Cheddar
1/2 mug crumbled blue cheese
salt and pepper
1/2 mug grated Parmesan

Method:
Step 1: Preheat oven to 200c
Step 2: Throw cauliflower, onions and pasta into pot of boiling water and cook until pasta is al dente
Step 3: While this is cooking melt butter in large pan. Stir in flour to make a roux and cook for 2 minutes. Turn up heat and slowly add milk and stir until thickened.
Step 4: Stir in mustard, cheddar and blue cheese and salt and pepper to taste.
Step 5: Drain pasta, onion and cauliflower and tip into large baking dish. Pour over sauce and top with Parmesan. Bake for 15 minutes

  1. Yum. I wish my husband would eat cauliflower - this looks creamy and comforting.

  2. Wow, that sounds amazing! I have added veg to pasta and cheese sauce dishes before, but this sounds extra special. I am drooling here :D

No Bake Zingy Lime Crumb Pie

This No-Bake Zingy Lime Crumb Pie is going to be my go to dessert this summer. A zingy lime cream encased in a sweet biscuit crumb - much like a no bake cheesecake...but better! It's seriously yummy and will happily sit in the fridge for a couple of days so there's no need to scoff it all at once if you don't want to 😜. It's quite rich too so the recipe made in a 20cm springform tin will easily feed 8 - 10 people, the perfect size for a family gathering or summer BBQ.


TOP TIPS FOR MAKING NO-BAKE ZINGY LIME CRUMB PIETry using ginger nut biscuits instead of digestives for a more grown up taste.For a 'fancier' dessert, pipe some whipped double cream around the edge of the pie and decorate with slices of lime.I whip the condensed milk, lime juice and double cream with a hand held electric whisk but you can do it by hand if you want to - it will give you a good arm workout!You can make the Zingy Lime Crumb Pie up to 3 days before you need it so it's a great ma…

Honey and Peanut Butter Flapjacks

These flapjacks are now my official weekday grab and go breakfast. I make a big batch on Sunday evening and I'm all set for the week. Oddly I don't really like peanut butter but it works well in this recipe. You can always substitute it for an extra 100g of ordinary butter if you wanted. A handful of raisins makes a nice addition too.
