I recently treated Mr Allergy and I to some new cooking books by Hemsley + Hemsley.
The recipes always look so nice, and they’re good for you, so that ticks several boxes. As with all recipe books I buy there are probably only about 30% of the recipes that I’m not allergic to, and others I can tweak. This particular brunch recipe didn’t need tweaking, so I thought I’d give it a go.
The best thing about this recipe is that there are no fussy or difficult to find ingredients. I either already had them at home or picked them up at Tesco. It doesn’t take a huge amount of prep and is pretty quick to cook.
The ingredients suggest an onion or a leek, but I decided to use both to give it extra bulk and add one more of my 5 a day! Had a bit of an accident whilst chopping the onion but I can’t blame the Hemsley sisters for my own stupidity. I can safely say I won’t be doing that again!
I used a small tin of chopped tomatoes, but next time I make this I probably won’t use them. They tasted good, but they made the hash slightly soggy. I would prefer it a bit more bubble and squeak-like.
I was quite happy with the overall result though, and Mr Allergy was grateful for a filling, healthy meal after just having completed a middle distance triathlon. I’d say it’s a winner!
