Recipe: Sweet Potato & Chickpea Stew

After making lots of soups and curries I wanted to make a different kind of hearty meal for the cold, wintery nights we’re finally having so a stew it is! I’ve always loved sweet potato (almost as much as normal potato!) and you can’t keep me away from chickpeas so this was definitely right up my alley. The combination of lots of veggies and spices made for a delicious, warming meal which also made lots of leftovers to stock my freezer for the weeks ahead.

Recipe: Carrot, Ginger and Coconut Soup

This soup combines some of my favourite flavours, so it’s no surprise that it has fast become one of my favourite soups! I had meant to freeze most of it to enjoy on the cold winter nights ahead, but the whole first batch somehow disappeared so unfortunately I just had to whip up some more! My parents stopped by one Saturday around lunchtime and so played the role of taste testers and then wouldn’t leave until I promised to give them the recipe, it’s that tasty!

Recipe: Ginger-Garlic Soba

If you’ve been around these parts for any length of time then you’d know colourful salads are up there on my favourite food list, and this is no exception! Not only is it colourful, it’s also full of delicious flavours (and a bit of a spice kick!) from the tofu marinade, all supported by tasty, hearty soba noodles. What more could you want from a salad!?

Recipe: Couscous & Chickpea Salad

Now that I’m back in the swing of things post Christmas holidays and moving house I’m back to making big salads on a Sunday afternoon to fuel me for a week of lunches at work. This one was a great way to start as it was quick and easy to prepare, full of flavour and also enough protein to stop me reaching for a mid-afternoon snack. I had been favouring Israeli couscous in recent times but decided it was time to pull the ol’ standard couscous out of the pantry, and I’m very glad I did – it worked a treat!

Getting Juicy

For as long as I can remember, whenever I would order a freshly squeezed juice at a cafe it was always a combination of apple, pineapple and orange juice. As I got older I’d sometimes add ginger, maybe a carrot, but those three key ingredients never changed. I still standby it as a great flavour combination, but over time I have expanded my horizons somewhat, and now my freshly squeezed juices are more guided by whatever fruit and veggies I have on hand (which unfortunately rarely includes pineapple!) as opposed to habit!
