These Are The 11 Recipes The Bed Threads Team Can't Stop Making Right Now
We'd hardly consider ourselves a group of professional chefs, but since spending more time at home we've started to invest more time and energy into the meals we're making and eating on a daily basis. What was a daunting task previously is now an enjoyable part of our day where we get to experiment with recipes and new flavours to treat our tastebuds to. From delicious and nutritious breakfast bowls to vegan pancakes and creamy pasta dishes, we've been cooking up a storm and are sharing eleven of our favourite recipes that you need to try this week.
1. Vegan and gluten-free vanilla blueberry buckwheat pancakes
I've never met a person who doesn't love a pancake, and now seems like as good a time as any to indulge in the fluffy breakfast treat to really start your day with a smile on your face. This recipe is even vegan and gluten-free, so it's an all-round winner in our eyes.
2. One pot penne with tuna, olives and capers
If you're after something that's super quick to make and is the ultimate comfort food, then this is the recipe for you. The best part is that you probably have all of the ingredients in your pantry already so you won't have to buy a heap of new ingredients to achieve this yummy go-to dish.
3. Bar Idda’s Eggplant Lasagne
Straight from the pages of Broadsheet's Italian Cookbook, this vegetarian eggplant lasagne is going to feature regularly in your weekly dinner roundup once you see how easy it is to make.
4. Almond & oat crusted salmon with vegetable kebabs
Even just from hearing the title, you can tell that this recipe is going to be worth the effort. It's the perfect mid-week meal when your body is craving a veggie fix, and the added element of almond and oats makes the salmon sing.
5. Thai Basil and chilli stir fry
With just ten minutes of prep and five of cooking, this is a recipe to keep in your back pocket for nights when time slips away from you. It's full of flavour, vegetables and is perfect for lunch the next day, too.
6. Creamy salmon gnocchi
When we think of comfort food, this is the recipe that springs to mind! It's decadent and creamy and only requires five steps to cook. If you're a fan of both salmon and gnocchi (who isn't!?) then this might just be tonight's dinner.

9. Bruschetta with feta
Bruschetta is a dish that's always a crowd-pleaser—add crunchy bread, blistering tomatoes and scrumptious feta to the equation and everyone will be salivating. To make your very own, for brunch, dinner or a snack, follow along with the recipe below.
