We love sweet potatoes in our house so anything that makes a quick supper and uses them is usually a hit. This is so simple and you can prepare everything in advance and then reheat it when you want it making it a really quick supper for a busy evening when work and the kids activities take precedent.

 

Ingredients

500g organic turkey mince
2 onions
4-6 medium/large sweet potatoes
1 tbs Taco Seasoning (* see below) 

400 g Black Beans, drained and rinsed

Salt and pepper

We love these tasty seedy crackers straight from the tin but they are equally nice with a spicy topping. You can experiment with the flavours but I’ve found the sweetness of the molasses and the fiery nature of the chilli work really well.

Ingredients

 

  • 125g quinoa flakes
  • 50ml rapeseed oil
  • 250g pumpkin seeds
  • 130g sunflower seeds
  • 50g linseeds
  • 3-4 tbsp finely chopped fresh rosemary
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 1 – 4 tsp dried chilli flakes, to taste
  • 200g molasses

 

Directions

 

Vegan Chickpea Wraps                      

 

These versatile Chickpea wraps are perfect as an accompaniment to curries or stews but work equally well as a salad wrap or with fajitas. I got the inspiration from the wraps they make on the Italian coast of Liguria. Here they are cooked on a super hot griddle often to great proportions and cut into triangles to serve along side fresh fish and salads.

 

Sometimes you need cake that really feels indulgent. I've loved watching The Great British Bake Off over the years but i'm mostly left feeling hungry and disappointed that so many of the gluten free alterntives to traditional cakes are so dense, tasteless or packed with refined sugar. This was a superb exeriement that i undertook after I had a can of pineapple pieces left over from a birthday party. I'd been tasked with re-creating one of those 1970's inspired hedgehogs of cheese and pineapple spikes! It was a triumph and thankfully this cake was too.

I’m a great one for saving ingredients then doing nothing with them so when I spotted 3 unripe bananas in the fruit bowl and I already had a freezer full of frozen banana pieces ready to make smoothies I thought I’d better use them up immediately or they’d be making compost in the wormery by next week.
