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?

For the love of vegetables..

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)!!
