I feel like this soup’s a bit naughty. Not in a bad for you way but because it’s using a summery ingredient in a winter recipe. But you know what? Sometimes a girl just wants what a girl wants and sometimes she finds a whole lot of roma tomatoes that might come from another state but at least they’re from this country so leave me alone. This soup is worth my ethical guilt.
There’s a lot of bastardisation in this recipe. I mean bahn mi without the pate and the bread rolls is not a bahn mi! But this has all the other signature flavours and is super delicious!
This is one of those meals that you can make as easy or as difficult as you like. It’s also one of those meals that’s insanely comforting and spicy without being chilli hot. Tender pieces of sweet potato, bright green spinach, fragrant creamy curry and crunchy golden peanuts. Yum.
I’m having a love affair with pasta at the moment. Pasta with rich comforting sauces. Sauces full of things that are good for you. Like this one, it’s got tonnes of flavour, is full of vegetables and the sauce can be used in lots of different ways.
This salad is so tasty. Filling enough to eat on it’s own and it looks so pretty, look at those flecks of red, the creamy green avocado and golden toasted coconut. All the yum.
Soup! Because it’s been more than a week since my last soup post and therefore you might be ready for a new one to add to the rotation. This one is fragrant with spice and very filling thanks to the addition of lentils. It’s also stupid easy to make.
Look at those colours! Roasted celeriac, farro, quinoa and bulgur are combined with toasted seeds and nuts, grapefruit pickled carrots and a bright pink beetroot yoghurt sauce to make a killer winter salad.
Dahl makhani is usually a tomato based curry that is heavy on the butter and cream. I love it but that amount of butter and cream can leave e feeling a little ick. It could also be all the onion. So I came up with this onion free, lighter version that’s still creamy in texture and full of fragrant flavour.
Yeah, you read that right. That word is definitely not Italian is it? But sugo is. Gochujang is a a spicy fermented bean paste from Korea. And it’s pungent sweet and spicy notes give a totally new and really interesting twist to traditional spaghetti and meatballs. I know it sounds like weird fusion cooking but it’s full of flavour and defines ‘winter warmer’.
