Caramelised Pear and Blue Cheese Skewers

Last post for vegetanuary and this canape is both quick and tasty. Furthermore, with only a pear, a few cubes of cheese and some chopped walnuts - oh and a few tiny grams of butter and a drizzle of honey - it only has 3 (or 5 if we are being truly accurate) ingredients.

Ingredients - makes 10 1 large fairly firm pear 10g butter 1 tbsp runny honey 25g walnuts, chopped 25g gorgonzola or other blue cheese (stilton is good for vegetarians) Small bamboo skewers Method Peel and slice the pear into 1 cm slices, avoiding the core.

Broccoli and Stilton boxes

With the retro food revival and it still being vegetanuary, how about making a plateful of super tasty vol au vents?

Miso Aubergines

Aubergines are such a delicious vegetable (although correctly speaking they are a berry) and can be used in so many different ways, fried, stuffed, baked, in salads, pasta dishes, in curries, the list goes on and on.
