Caribbean Sweet Potato and Bean Curry with Wild Rice

This recipe is one I love cooking for family and friends, as it’s easier to cook in bulk. It’s based on a loose adaptation of jerk seasoning, but with veg instead of chicken, and I think it’s really delicious. You can serve this with corn, wraps, rice, yoghurt, salsa, mangoes, anything you like really! It’sContinue reading “Caribbean Sweet Potato and Bean Curry with Wild Rice”

Simple Quesadillas

I simplified one of my favourite quesadilla recipes for this post, there aren’t any extra vegetables in these which makes them really simple and easy to make. These quesadillas are almost like a mexican cheese toastie, with a few added extras! I’ve served with soured cream for a fresh taste against the cheese, onion andContinue reading “Simple Quesadillas”

Roasted Tomato Soup with Pesto and Parmesan Toasts

I’ve never made tomato soup before and I had a real craving for it yesterday morning, so I thought I would give it a go! I also decided to try and make it a little more interesting than just having ordinary bread by making some little pesto and parmesan toasts, with homemade garden herb pesto!Continue reading “Roasted Tomato Soup with Pesto and Parmesan Toasts”

Weekday Meal: Chilli Bowl with Chunky Sweet Potato and Avocado

  This dish is really easy to make, and although it’s not as quick as some of my others it’s worth the extra cooking time to get the beans tender and the potatoes nice and fluffy.

Food Spot: Bibimbap Soho

I’ve been meaning to give Bibimbap in Soho a try for a really long time, and yesterday my friend Mirabel and I finally managed to pay it a visit. The restaurant is situated just off Charing Cross Road, not too far from Chinatown and is actually not too tricky to find. We were greeted byContinue reading “Food Spot: Bibimbap Soho”

Chickpea and Carrot Tagine with Orange Rice

When the weather is cold and miserable in London, sometimes there’s nothing better than a hot, spicy stew to warm everything up. This one is inspired by Moroccan tagines, using a sweet and spicy tomato sauce and filling chickpeas and carrots, served with a fresh, orange rice. This recipe does take a little longer toContinue reading “Chickpea and Carrot Tagine with Orange Rice”

Food Spot: Brick Lane

  Since moving to London I’ve been to Brick Lane and Spitalfield Market a handful of times, but until last weekend I was yet to try any of the food stalls there. Whilst wandering down the street, I came across a mini food market in Brick Lane Boiler House, serving all types of interesting takeContinue reading “Food Spot: Brick Lane”

Really easy noodles

Sometimes, that noodle craving just hits and you need something easy and quick to satisfy your hunger. This recipe uses dry noodle nests instead of fresh, which although means using more than one pan, is cheaper than the fresh packets you can buy and they last longer too! I also really love topping my noodlesContinue reading “Really easy noodles”
