Goan Crab Cakes by The Greedy Fox

We first tested these Goan Crab Cakes when we had some builders around doing some work in our house and they disappeared in minutes! (The crab cakes not the builders!) The key with cooking with any seafood is not to overpower the delicate flavour of the fish. We wanted to enhance the flavour of the crab, not make it disappear and our Goan Seasoning is perfect for that. You can devour this as a starter for 4 or a main meal for two. If you are looking for beautiful fresh crab in Devon, check out The Cracking Crab in Plymouth

Mexican Spiced Aubergine Stuffed Field Mushroom by The Greedy Fox

Mushrooms are all too often just an ingredient, never the star of the show. We think this is a tragedy, give them the chance and they can be your leading lady. This is one of the best mushroom recipes you will try. We have this one as a Vegan mushroom recipe by using vegan Mozzarella but if you are not vegan normal Mozzarella will do just fine. Vegan cheese is getting better every day if you are looking to try it check out these guys www.mozzarisella.co.uk

This is a great starter dish and very low fat too. Mozarella is a great cheese for making the fat content of a dish low instead of cheddar or similar cheese. We managed to get hold of some flat field mushrooms but portobello mushrooms are easy to come by and work just as well.
