Thai Butternut Squash Skewers with Coconut Sauce and Rice

It's been ages since I've eaten or cooked thai food so instead of a typical green or red curry I decided to make these squash kebabs. I added a little bit of peanut butter on the squash as it roasted and a squeeze of lime to add some flavour and tie it in to the … Continue reading Thai Butternut Squash Skewers with Coconut Sauce and Rice

Superfood Burger and Fries

It's been quite some time since I've written a post due to exam craziness so I thought I'd make something to reward myself and ease myself back into cooking. It's really easy to get into a funk when you're doing exams, eating rubbish, getting out of practice with cooking and eating out way too much … Continue reading Superfood Burger and Fries

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's … Continue 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 and … Continue reading Simple Quesadillas

Nachos with Chipotle Sauce and Sides

I love Mexican food, and nachos are one of my absolute favourite dishes. At home with my family, I would make these as part of a Mexican feast with chilli, fajitas or tacos. Away at uni I like to make these as a dish in their own right, with fresh avocado, limes, tomatoes and soured … Continue reading Nachos with Chipotle Sauce and Sides

Parsley and Harissa Puy Lentil Bowl

I was looking for something really quick and easy to make for lunch a few days ago, and I decided to give microwavable puy lentils a try. The ones I've used are in a pouch, and can be microwaved or pan fried for two minutes, so are really convenient compared to dried lentils. Although puy … Continue reading Parsley and Harissa Puy Lentil Bowl

Lemony Pesto Pasta with Roasted Veg and Feta

I felt like making something a little more spring-like this week, so I've tried to include more fresh flavours with my winter favourites. It's still not quite warm enough yet to let go of roasted veg and comforting pasta dishes, but I love using lemon and feta alongside these more seasonal ingredients for a perfect … Continue reading Lemony Pesto Pasta with Roasted Veg and Feta

Smokey Butternut Squash Bruschetta

I only used half a baked butternut squash in my last recipe, so this a good way to use up the leftover squash without having to buy too many ingredients. Although bruschetta is usually made using raw tomatoes, I've roasted them with red onions, garlic and olive oil to complement the paprika in the squash. … Continue reading Smokey Butternut Squash Bruschetta

Sweetcorn Fritters with Avocado Dip

Making any kind of fritter/burger is a really good way to get veg into your system without just having it as a side dish. These little cakes are really tasty and good for you, as well as being easy to make for a light lunch. For this recipe to work, you'll need to have some … Continue reading Sweetcorn Fritters with Avocado Dip

Quick Red Pepper Fajitas with Salsa

Fajitas should be in everyone's collection of recipes, they're real crowd pleasers and are quick and easy to make at short notice. I love cooking these for my family as they're a particular favourite of my brother, and although he (and alot of you!) may prefer to use chicken, I've used red pepper and red … Continue reading Quick Red Pepper Fajitas with Salsa
