Welcome all, fill your tum with my num num nums.

Gluten, Dairy & Legume free recipes; some by design, others are just nice recipes that happen to be! There are recipes and also shopping 'finds', all of which are good for free from people and all yummy whether you are following a particular diet or not! Just because something is 'free from' doesn't mean everyone can't enjoy it - and you may be surpised at how much happier your body is.

'Special' is how my friends describe my food and me, I don't think it's entirely complimentary!

Moroccan-ish Poussin

Not really a recipe, more flavours & ideas to share. I am a big poussin fan; some times you want that roast chicken taste but living on my own its a lot of left overs to commit to! 1 poussin does me 2 meals but I'm sure a hungry guy could polish off one! They could certainly posh up roast chicken for a dinner party & are nicer than a full sized bird.
I gave this a Moroccan feel by smearing pomegranate molasses over the poussin & then sprinkling za'atar (moroccan spice blend, pretty easy to get) over the poussin & the veg (beetroot, carrot & celery;a combination of it feels middle eastern & its in my fridge!). I pre-heated the tray & cooked it all for about 45 mins - the size of the poussin does mean you can chuck everything in together! None of the veg was parboiled just cut into similar sized pieces. I certainly don't mess about peeling beetroot - the skin comes off easily after its cooked anyway.
Pomegranate Molasses is one of my favourite thing; at once both sweet & tart it lends itself to both savoury & sweet dishes - try mixing some in with sliced strawberries & letting them sit for a bit.
