I’ve been making lots of galettes these last few weeks, they are my favourite thing to bake at the moment! The buttery, flaky pastry is easy to work with and there are lots of different toppings and flavours to play with. I also love the perfectly imperfect nature of galettes, and their rustic appearance.

I absolutely love chickpeas and trying new ways of serving them. Usually I go for the tinned variety as that is the most convenient option, but lately I’ve been buying dried chickpeas, cooking them in large batches and freezing them to use for hummus and dishes like this one. It’s not too much of a faff if you do a big batch each time, and works out to be more cost effective. Chickpeas have a rather earthy flavour with a touch of nuttiness, and I love cooking them with lots of spices, particularly cumin and chilli. These spicy and herby chickpeas can be served as a simple side dish or lunch alongside a salad.

Please feel free to add your own thoughts in the comments, I’d love to hear how you’re doing!

Wow, what interesting and crazy times we are living in! A few days ago I had no idea that this week our little family would be hunkering down at home together (with schools closed and supermarkets cleaned out) and the prospect of another few weeks at home ahead of us. Being in the kitchen is particularly comforting at times of uncertainty like this, and to be able to sit down as a family each evening and enjoy a home cooked meal is a blessing. Over the next few weeks we’ll be doing a lot of that, and I guess that’s just one of the silver linings to a harrowing situation.
