I am currently sitting on a airplane on my way back to Minneapolis from Denver after a really fun and exciting week planning for Sweat Series 2017 and beyond. Monique and I have some MAJOR (like MAJOR) things planned and we are so excited we can barely contain it. Mark your calendars friends, January 8th is the start date of our very first New Year Sweat Series. SO, CASSEROLE WEEK DAY 2 —> Sweet Potato Green Curry Quinoa Casserole. Fun fact: I hadn’t tried curry until about a year ago when Davida made it for me at her house. This casserole really is the ultimate vegetarian (vegan, actually) meal! TruRoots’ Sprouted Quinoa is my jam and cooks perfectly in 60 minutes in this casserole.

Let’s take a look at what veggies are in this casserole: sweet potatoesgreen pepperred pepperonionsweet peas Instructions . Rachel Roddy’s recipe for hand-rolled pasta with pea and ricotta pesto. After a brief stint as a waitress, my second job in Rome was, predictably, teaching English.

Rachel Roddy’s recipe for hand-rolled pasta with pea and ricotta pesto

To begin with I worked with actors, most notably with Alessio, who was preparing to audition for an English mini-series. Tall and broad, Alessio could only get into character while pacing or leaning, palms flat on the table, and rocking, which seemed at odds with both the scene he was preparing for, and my small flat. Alessio also caused a stir with my then neighbours Olga and Amelia who, recognising him from the TV and having heard his voice across the internal courtyard, were always outside their door, vigorously bashing a rug or sweeping the step when he left at the end of his lesson. After actors, I taught children. At first I was at a school on Gianicolo hill, an occasional job with a sublime view over Rome’s patchwork of terracotta and glinting cupolas that made me catch my breath every time, and almost made up for the exasperating school politics.

Food - Recipes : Tomato risotto. The weekend cook: Thomasina Miers’ leek recipes. I am a huge fan of the allium family in all its guises, from onions and shallots to chives and all the rest.

The weekend cook: Thomasina Miers’ leek recipes

In Mexico, the onions are so sweet, they are often scattered raw over all sorts of dishes to add crisp lightness and gentle acidity. At home, I love to macerate shallots in vinegar, to add piquancy to salad dressings; and, in winter, I am often to be found slowly sweating onions into a brown, sticky mass, for use in pissaladière, French onion soup and a host of other mouth-watering dishes. Leeks, too, are just as versatile: leek quiche, leeks vinaigrette, baked potatoes with melted leeks and grated sheep’s cheese… This cheap and cheerful vegetable is one of the home cook’s best friends, so here are two simple recipes that show it off in all its glory. Harissa and coconut-roasted leeks with coriander rice This warm, comforting dish contains no meat, but it has such depths of flavour that it should perk anyone up no end. Heat a griddle pan to high.

Sweet Jacket Stuffed With Avocado Tuna. Rachel Phipps: Recipe: Farro, Avocado & Egg Breakfast Bowl with Miso Yogurt. I don't know what it is this year, but I seem permanently cold.

Rachel Phipps: Recipe: Farro, Avocado & Egg Breakfast Bowl with Miso Yogurt

I'm writing this wearing cashmere leggings, an oversized jumper and bedsocks, and I'm still feeling the chill. I know the most practical way to tackle this is with lots of snuggly layers and lots of mugs of hot tea, but another is making sure I get a proper breakfast. I'm notoriously bad at eating properly on weekday mornings before I rush off to work, and I know not eating enough can make you feel colder.

I somehow don't think my daily glass of vegetable juice and an avocado dressed with lemon juice and sea salt won't cut it much longer, so, inspired by lots of the breakfast grain bowls I've seen on Pinterest, I thought I'd come up with a protein heavy, make ahead bowl for busy mornings. You have lots of different grain options. BBC Food - Recipes - Spicy prawn rice with fried egg. Hasselback Sweet Potatoes. Sweet Potato Wedges and Coconut Bacon.

Sweet Potato Wedges and Coconut Bacon

Its salty tang, freshly fried, crisp fat and delicious smell is enough to make me salivate at the mere thought of it. I often crave it’s smokey taste and snappable crunch. However it is something I have infrequently, because the good stuff it is expensive. Green Beans with Tofu, Miso & Sesame Dressing » Kavey Eats. Traditionally, the key ingredients in the Japanese dish shira-ae are white – white tofu, white miso and white sesame seeds; shiro means white in Japanese and the ae suffix denotes a vegetable dish with dressing.

It’s now ten days into December and I really should be thinking of what to bake, what to buy and how to survive the holidays in once piece. This weekend I’ll be at Got Craft, a craft fair I regularly take part in because it’s just so much fun. But it’s also so much work.

Shaved carrot, shitake, spinach and noodle salad. Notes of Bacon: Winter Slaw with Thai Peanut Dressing. About two years ago I went for dinner at a dear friends house and she served me this. Or something like this, it was peanutty red cabbage, that's for sure. It has stuck with me since then as such a beautiful merging of English and Thai with a sprinkling of Christmas (the red cabbage). I'm sure that's what she was going for. For lack of the original recipe, I have coined my own version which will hopefully hit the same notes. Food - Recipes : Simple miso, tofu and mushroom ramen. No trick, just treats: Yotam Ottolenghi’s pumpkin and squash recipes. The more familiar we become with images and stories from Syria that shock, the more essential it is to emphasise the humanity we all share, and how this is often made manifest through food.

That’s why I’ve given my support to the book Soup For Syria, as I wrote last week. Every conflict has a food story to tell, and in Food Stories From Syria, a recent Food Programme on Radio 4, Dan Saladino unveiled a few of those stories, told by asylum seekers, aid workers and food writers. Many of the stories we hear from the region are about a dire lack; but they are also connected by a sense of the pride that people have in relation to the food of their home country, as well as the humility and hospitality that goes into making and sharing it. Food writer Anissa Helou told Saladino about the shacks in Lebanon into which she has been invited to eat fattoush, a staple Syrian salad made with huge amounts of fresh herbs and toasted bread.

It is also a fantastic source of fibre. If you have not made gnocchi before then give this a go - I promise it is really easy and the end result is pretty dreamy!

Ingredients. A Comprehensive Guide to Lentils. Lentils are definitely one of my favorite vegetarian proteins.

Looking back at some of recipes I’ve posted recently, I realized that I heavily rely on my vitamix and my food processor. To me, these things are not a hassle, but “old me”, (in a previous life, I never used to cook), would completely skip over a recipe if it asked me to drag out my food processor. Even if i could find all of the pieces for it, I wasn’t interested in the mess and the cleanup. So the other night, I set out to make something that didn’t require fancy ingredients or any kind of gadget. This stumped me for a few minutes and then I revisited Nigel Slater’s book, Tender… which I think is the perfect book when you need “less-is-more” kind of inspiration.

All it took was a frosty mid morning walk down Regent Street awashed with black friday shoppers and I felt it. That overwhelming sense of simultaneous nostalgia and festive joyfulness, intermingled with a niggling annoyance (that any city dweller knows well when they try to part the crowds, like the red sea to get to their tube station.)

Christmas evokes such a conflicting array of emotions within me. Warming Squash Soup Bowl. Why is it that we can get enough of soups in the winter but forget all about them when the sun comes out.
