A winter salad for a sunny day

I am a little bit obsessed with vegetables at the moment, so forgive me for another flesh-free post. It’s all the lovely Sarah’s fault. She’s a vegetarian, a real vegetarian (rather than the ones who are actually ‘pescatarians’), and during … Continue reading

Salbitxada…or tomato and almond pesto by another name
