My Name Is Spice

For the love of vegetables..

Imogen Taylor - Friday, July 29, 2016

Even in Winter it is rewarding to celebrate Nature's bounty in the form of fruits and vegetables.

I have used the under-rated cauliflower and tossed it in spices; then served it up with an array of lettuces, rocket, and fresh pear, herbs and basil flowers.

This Chermoula spice blend is made up of the warm earthy end of the spice spectrum; which lends itself to root vegetables and Winter cooking generally


NB, the warming spices in this instance be turmeric, cumin and paprika (three of fifteen spices I use in this Moroccan blend).

Spices each have different personalities, and different roles to play in any given situation. (I like to think of them as people)!!


Shepherds Pie made with leeks, courgettes, adzuki beans and an almond crumb

- hard to describe how good this was! I have sauteed together some blanched yams, with onions, garlic, eggplant, courgettes and leeks; then added "Berbere" spices till gorgeously flavoured; then thrown in the cooked adzukibeans and added all to the pan. On top is a potato and pumpkin mash. And to finish; a breadcrumb, garlic and almond crumb; combined with nutritional yeast, lemon juice, herbs and capers. Seriously tasty
