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.
So much of what I want to cook at the moment is about recreating flavours I experienced overseas. This is one of those dishes. It’s simple, comforting and full of flavour. And one of those flavour memories from traveling that I just keep coming back to.
Baked sweet potatoes make for such a good lunch or dinner! You can make these ahead of time and just reheat things when you’re ready to eat. They take a little bit of time in the oven but you’re just waiting for most of that time – there’s not lots you need to do to make them delicious. You can read a book, dance round the kitchen, have a glass of wine etc while you wait for the oven to do it’s thing.
This simple summer salad can be a side or a full meal. I love having it with a couple of soft boiled eggs on top for lunch – so delicious I kind of want to lick the plate. Maybe have, this is a safe private place for my confessions right? It’s really easy to throw together and tastes delicious.
This salad is so pretty and full of flavour. it combines a couple of my favourite things… hummus and cauliflower. I’ve been really into loading roasted cauliflower onto hummus lately and then scooping it all up with some flat bread… or just a fork. But I felt I could make the whole thing look less beige. So now we have this.
I don’t really know where to start with how delicious these are. And messy. And delicious. And colourful. And tasty. And did I mention delicious? They’re a winner and you can easily make the enchilada sauce in advance (or buy it if you live near somewhere that sells a good one).
Yep. It’s another cauliflower recipe, I just can’t help myself. And another chickpea recipe. Dressing chickpeas with delicious flavoursome dressings is my current thing. They just soak up flavour so well and are super filling so are great in lighter salads like this.
This is sort of the third salad I’ve posted this week… whoops! This was clearly not well planned, but it’s all I feel like eating at the moment. This one is super filling due to the lentils and freekah and can easily become a stand alone meal with the addition of some grilled chicken or a soft boiled egg. Perfection.
I’ve been thinking about this curry for a while. I love saag. I love it’s intense greenness and slightly more subtle flavour in comparison to other curries. And Saag Aloo (when you make it with potatoes) is so yumm). Despite it apparently being Spring already the weather last week was very winter like so I decided it was the perfect time to make this.
