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

I've served with soured cream for a fresh taste against the cheese, onion and … Continue reading Simple Quesadillas

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
