My Name Is Spice

Roast Sweet Potato stuffed with chickpeas and cashew sour cream

Imogen Taylor - Tuesday, August 29, 2017
Sometimes when I've been eating out alot (like when on holiday), I long for wholesome home cooking made with love and extra care; anticipating those who will share in the meal, and the pleasure this will bring.

I have roasted some sweet potatoes while preparing the burghul wheat (cooked in vegetable stock), sautéeing the leeks and garlic, cooking the chickpeas and toasting the pumpkin seeds. I made the sour cream a couple of days ago (always good to have this vegan dairy-free cheese in the fridge).

It's a little fiddly but if you love cooking; it's like therapy really!!

What are you having for dinner?

Vindaloo Curry cooked in Clay Pot

Imogen Taylor - Friday, August 25, 2017
I wanted to try cooking this vegan curry in a clay pot; to keep all the vegetables intact, enhance the flavour, and so I wouldn't have to stir it!!!


This is a Vindaloo curry in nature, with cauliflower, carrots, courgettes, eggplant, chillis, onion, garlic, ginger, and a generous whack of Vindaloo paste; plus fresh tomatoes and a tin of coconut cream.


Serve with whole grain rice and a lemon or lime wedge. Super yummmmy!
