From Dennis Johns:
Not too much to say about Surrey this morning but my word, that article on the haal is one I’ve gone back to time and again. Just glorious writing about a wonderful human thing.
Anna Jones is undoubtedly the queen of modern vegetarian cooking, this is one I make all the time.
The ‘smash’/chermoula you can basically add to almost anything and make it taste nicer even if you don’t want to do the whole recipe.
This is a pretty good black daal, getting ingredients depends where you live (I can get them from my corner shop but that’s the beauty of this exciting part of Sheffield).
And this is a halloumi pie. That’s halloumi, in a pie. Yes. One for all the hallouminati.
And Geoff Wignall:
You could do worse than check out the Minimalist Baker website. They’ve a free e-book or e-pamphlet of recipes but once you’ve joined the site they also send two or three recipes each week. It’s slightly odd in that the vast majority of the recipes are vegan/ vegetarian but just occasionally there’ll be one for chicken or fish.They’re very big on about 17 varieties of veggie burger but plenty of other good stuff too, mostly quite quick and easy.
If you are looking for an easy and very tasty recipe I have just the thing: pasta with courgette and mint. It’s a River Cottage recipe btw – link here.
We have been growing courgettes in the garden this year and probably have one or two plants too many so we have eaten this meal many, many times this summer and haven’t got tired of it yet!

Not cricket, but does anyone have any easy go-to vegetarian recipes up their sleeve? I’m so bored of cooking the same things all the time. No celery.

More injury worries: Chris Rushworth, who is off the field at Durham, and Jake Ball who is off the field at Trent Bridge.

Elsewhere, let’s see if Notts and Glamorgan’s batsmen can continue the good starts of yesterday. At Canterbury, Jordan Cox and Jack Leaning restart the day after a wonderful unbroken partnership of 231 for Kent. Essex have a lead of 88 after Simon Harmer clicked his fingers and rediscovered his 2019 magic; Derbyshire and Lancashire have batted their way into strong positions, and it has been slow and steady at Bristol. Hampshire’s small first-innings lead was spoilt by injury to poor Liam Dawson, who last night tweeted that he didn’t think it would be “great news” but is waiting for further assessment.
Here in Manchester we still have the swifts and the bushes are full of blackberries, so it doesn’t yet feel like that tipping point in August when the summer starts to slip away.
