Soups, stews and curries are perfect for the cooler months. They are so incredibly flavourful and satisfying. Ideal also to keep for the next day when the flavours have had a chance to marry and mature beautifully.
This bean stew is another wonderful vegetarian dish to serve on a cold winter day. It makes for a seriously comforting bowl of nourishing food, one that has slowly been ticking away on the stove. Perfect for a family meal or a big pot meal that will last for days.
l love simple recipes with flavours that pack a punch! Chipotle is lovely and smoky without too much heat. The sweetness of the sweet potato and the red pepper blends beautifully with the chipotle-flavoured chicken. A winning recipe!
I was introduced to this recipe by Janine, C's cousin from Vancouver. The beauty of this dish is its versatility (one can add any vegetable + tofu or shrimp or other protein source) and its "secret" sauce (a blend of savoury and bitter flavours - very umami). The Buddha bowl is a great family dish as everyone picks their preferred ingredients and mixes it all together. Namaste!
Who does not love homemade meatballs? These meatballs have a little added extra though: they simmer for over an hour in tomato sauce allowing all the flavours and juices to blend. They are also made out of lamb, lentils and rice so they are a meal onto themselves. With a little added greens salad, possibly.
