How to Make Caramelized Onions in the Microwave
Although it takes about as long as it would to do them on the stovetop, I’m not sure why I’d bother. Still, they are delicious [c/o Lifehacker]. #   ·

What it’s like to compete in the Chopped kitchen
Decent interview with a past contestant giving a pretty detailed behind-the-scenes at the Food Network’s best show. #   ·

Cauli gosh: Yotam Ottolenghi’s cauliflower recipes
Yes, yes, it’s the cauliflower/Ottolenghi singularity. But just look at those recipes and tell me your mouth isn’t watering. #   ·

Cauliflower pizza crust
Yes, another low-carb recipe for future reference. I don’t think this really needs the ground almonds, though. #   ·

Vietnamese Cauli-Fried Rice
We’ve done fried ‘rice’ with cauliflower a few times, and this looks like a lovely variation to try. The sauce looks fairly simple, too. #   ·

Give Me Five: Hummus with lamb
This is good: only five ingredients (unless you make your own hummus, which is dead easy once you have all the bits you need) to make a proper hearty meal that’s relatively low in fat and carbs. #   ·

A simple recipe for chimichurri
Used this easy recipe the other night to go with sirloin steak and it turned out great, though I think we could use a little less oil next time. #   ·

Slab happy: Yotam Ottolenghi’s meatloaf recipes
Meat with a bunch of stuff in it, baked in a tray? Sounds easy enough to me. (Though I’ll have to watch the carbs-to-protein ratio; I’ve been eating too many carbs as it is.) #   ·

Here are Ireland’s top 10 biscuits, in order of popularity
Definitive proof that the vast majority of Irish society are morons. No Crunch Creams? No Viscounts? Zero credibility. #   ·

Love me some chickpeas. #   ·

Guardian readers’ recipe swap: Sandwiches
Some lovely picnic/lunch ideas here. Speaking of lunch: here’s a primer on grain salads and how to make them. And while I’m at it, a veggie burger recipe that comes recommended by Tom. #   ·

The 10 best aubergine recipes
Oh I love me some aubergine. And Middle Eastern food in general. And root veg (especially roasted). I’d read the Guardian now for the recipes alone. #   ·

Always the Same Thing
“I don’t care what I eat so long as it is always the same.” Maybe Wittgenstein never said that, but that’s not as important as the notion that it’s totally plausible. A man after my own heart, that Ludwig. #   ·

The 10 best egg recipes
Now that I eat eggs and all. I make a pretty mean omelette. #   ·

Make the Ultimate Pizza at Home with a $5 DIY Brick Oven
Oh I am SO doing this #   ·

Dublin Falafel Hunt
One blogger’s quest to rate the city’s falafel. Which reminds me: I’ve discovered there’s a new Lebanese takeaway just a 15-minute walk from my flat! I will have ALL THE FALAFEL! #   ·
