A Kick up the Asparagus!

19 June, 2016

The season for asparagus (April to July), which I believe is relatively short, is upon us!  I have no objection to asparagus as such but do find it just a little bit boring of itself. According to Best in Season asparagus is a source of vitamin A and C and B9, so bring it on I say!  My fennel seed enhancement gives a massive flavour boost that we think works quite well, for little effort.  Asparagus can then be incorporated nicely into lots of dishes.

I have seen many chefs wax lyrical on TV programmes, at various times about what a proper omelette should be.  I don't know whether they would approve of this life saver below but frankly, I don't care!  This doesn't do much for Marian's needs but when I am stuck and look around to see what is available to make a lunch or tea; eggs, rashers, peas - chicken if available; then we are good to go!

Serves 2, or my case - one hungry Carni!

Tools to Help You with Goal Setting

By now you are either full steam ahead on your goals for next or have failed miserably. Ok so the latter sounds a bit 'drama queen' territory but the shameful way we berate ourselves for getting stuck and lasting only 2 or 3 days or so with our goals you'd swear world peace depended on our success. 

As it has become our time honoured tradition in Herbi & Carni to have an inspirational post in January, this year is no different.

No Bake Fig Brownie

17 September, 2015


This recipe had been lost in a pile of recipes, written on scraps of paper, that had found a home for themselves in a corner of my dining room shelves. I dread to think how long they've been lying there. At long last though we are getting through them. Hope you enjoy it. This brownie has a gorgeous sweetness to it for those days when nothing else will do but to satisfy your sweet tooth. 

Warming Quinoa Porridge

08 September, 2015


As the winter is fast approaching (or if you live in Ireland like us, then it never left us!) comfort foods must be making a hasty return to your weekly menu. To help you ease back into colder months here's a quick porridge to try. A spoonful of hulled hemp seeds, dairy-free coconut cream and blueberries are delicious toppings for this porridge too.
