Sesame Kabocha Squash Bowls with Tahini Sauce

By erin Every new year starts with a buzz of produce excitement. I spend the cool fall months with cozy recipes that help to settle into a long winter. The new year is all about lighter recipes packed with flavor. I love winter squash because it plays in both spaces well and is easy to store throughout the months. This sesame kabocha squash is my march to spring. One quick word about the squash: when roasted for long enough, the skin can stay but if you’re concerned or don’t believe me, peel it before roasting.

Ultimate vegan sandwich with red lentil spread

By Becca @ Amuse Your Bouche Is anyone taking part in Veganuary this year? I’m not (evidently) but I do love vegan food, and this seems as good a time as any to share this awesome vegan sandwich recipe.

The basis of this sandwich is a creamy red lentil spread. Lentils have an awful lot going for them – they’re cheap, super healthy, and really easy to cook – but unfortunately their appearance isn’t one of their main selling points, so I’m not giving you any close-ups here. But if you can picture a bowl of baby food, you can pretty much picture this red lentil spread.

Mini Hasselback Potatoes with Garlic & Cheese

By Grace One thing I can always guarantee my children will eat is potatoes. They like them every which way, but one of their favourites has got to be ‘hedgehog potatoes‘, or hasselback potatoes as they are known to the rest of the world! I was recently asked to create a meal using Tesco Cypriot New Potatoes and I decided to take this favourite family recipe up a notch by adding garlic, rosemary and Gruyère cheese, which, though I say so myself, turned out to be utterly delicious. As the Cypriot potatoes are new potatoes, they made mini hasselback potatoes, …read more

Comptoir Libanais – Bath

By Sus Davy We’ve had a wave of new eateries open up in Bath over the last few months, some exciting, some not so much. Sometimes I feel that Bath is becoming a city of restaurants and not much else. We have coffee shops galore (I’m not complaining!) and every week a new food hang out is opening. When I heard Comptoir Libanais was coming to town, instead of my usual roll of the eyes at yet another chain restaurant, I was excited. Comptoir opened their first branch in London in 2008, and up until 2015 only had branches in London. They are …read more

Easy Layered Smoothie Recipe with Dole Frozen Fruit

By Grace Nothing says summer like a gorgeously bright fruity smoothie, and with the weather so wintry and dismal this week, I thought it was about time I injected a bit of extra colour into our diets! This pretty layered smoothie was inspired by the new frozen fruit packs from Dole which I had the opportunity to try recently. I already love Dole’s canned fruit – it always seems to have so much more flavour than other brands, so I was excited to see whether their new frozen range would live up to my high expectations too.

How To Make Fast, No-Soak Beans in the Pressure Cooker

By Emma Christensen I think that a warm pot of beans whenever you want them is at least half the reason for owning a pressure cooker.
Forget pre-soaking. Forget hours of gentle simmering.
With a pressure cooker, you can go from opening a bag of dried legumes to pump, tender beans in under an hour. How’s that for a sales pitch?!

30 Minute Vegetarian Dinners

By erin 30 minute vegetarian dinners are my core meals. With a toddler running around, I don’t have a lot of time to relax in the kitchen in the evening. I’m fairly certain ‘relax’ and ‘toddler’ are two words that don’t go together. I’m usually waiting for M to get home and then running to the kitchen to whip something up for three very hungry people. While I still love making gnochhi or leisurely cooking through a long recipe, most weeknights are fast dinners. Below are my categories for fast dinners with a few ideas to get you started.

Skillet Chermoula Chicken

By Elise Bauer Are you familiar with Chermoula? It’s the Moroccan answer to pesto—a spicy herb sauce often used in North African cuisine.
Although chermoula is most often paired with fish, it’s excellent with chicken! Chicken thighs hold their own with this flavorful rub made with parsley, cilantro, garlic, cumin, coriander, lemon, and olive oil. Continue reading “Skillet Chermoula Chicken” »

Turmeric Sweet Potato Soup

By erin
There are spices in my cupboard that I buy monthly while others hang around, waiting to be used more. Turmeric is the main spice in this recipe but the real flavor, and what I think makes the soup, is coriander. I love coriander because it adds a beautiful citrus undertone that compliments the lemon. And while I typically pair coriander with cumin, this spice can easily be the star of a recipe.

Mexican black bean casserole

By Becca @ Amuse Your Bouche You guys always seem to love Mexican food as much as I do (and by ‘Mexican food’, I mean the almost entirely inauthentic TexMex kind of food). My slow cooker burrito bowls are one of my most popular recipes ever. But, it’s been a while since I got my bean on (…that wasn’t meant to sound like a euphemism), so I thought it was time for another Mexican recipe.

I suppose this black bean casserole is similar to a burrito bowl in many ways, but it’s lighter on the rice and heavier on the beans. Plus you get a crispy, cheesy …read more

Pâté de Campagne – Finally, Something Complicated

By foodwishes@yahoo.com (Chef John) Every once in a while, I get a food wish that has nothing to do with a specific recipe, but rather it’s a request to post something complicated, and challenging to do. Well, this country-style pâté is about as close as we’re going to get. Calling this recipe complicated is sort of a stretch; and “involved” would probably be more accurate. There are many steps, and the ingredient list isn’t short, but none of the techniques are very difficult, or particularly time-consuming.Coarsely grinding the meat is probably the most crucial step, but as you saw, if the meat is very …read more
