This is such an easy soup recipe and will keep you feeling warm on these chilly winter days. It can be ready in 30 minutes and is all done in one pot, no blending required. The spices can be adjusted to suit your taste and you can leave out some if you don’t have a well stocked spice cupboard. That said, buy SOME spices though, cos if you don’t know how to flavour your food what are you even doing?!
I have been eating porridge most mornings lately. This is super unusual for me, not because I don’t like porridge, I’m all about it, but because I just don’t eat the same thing multiple mornings in a row. I’ve been changing it up a little bit in terms of porridge flavourings but this is the one that’s been on highest rotation. It’s oats, but it tastes like banana bread so what’s not to like?!
You cannot possibly underestimate the warming, healing and happiness power of a good soup on a cold day. I’m probably making at least 1 soup a week at the moment and filling my freezer with tasty things for cold days when cooking is just beyond me. Yeah even people like me who spend all their time, thinking about, writing about and cooking food can’t be stuffed sometimes. Make your way through this tasty little collection this winter for happy bellies and warm hands.
Yum yum yum! This salad is warm, and comforting and full of flavour. It’s also loaded with vegetables and totally winter appropriate. The crunchy toasted coconut, crispy bits of roast cauliflower and caramelised pumpkin are a killer combo. Especially with miso and sesame paste coating it all. Yes, yes, yes.
I had to put the word creamy in the title because otherwise this guy just screams HEALTH and I didn’t want to scare everyone off. Plus it is creamy so why wouldn’t I mention that? This curry is delicious! I’m a big fan of tofu these days and this curry comes together pretty quickly with a big punch of flavour.
These taste like a cross between cinnamon brioche and cinnamon donuts. The coconut, vanilla and cinnamon give them sweetness (enhanced with a little maple syrup, or dates if you’re not a fructard!) and the dark roasted almond butter adds a toasted richness that makes them extra delicious.
With a choc, coconut almond base, tahini caramel middle layer and raw chocolate topping this slice is all the good things. It’s gluten free and sweetened with a little maple syrup to make it a not so naughty treat.
This salad is full of flavour and texture thanks to the creamy dressing, crunchy almonds, sweet pumpkin and fresh spinach. The perfect prep ahead work salad. Just don’t toss it all together until you’re ready to eat.
I think all 3 recipes I’m posting this week have little travel stories attached to them. I got the idea for these chips from a trip to Granada, Spain. I went for a weekend and ate my weight in Tapas, so obviously I loved every moment of it.
