Baked Sweet Potato With Garam Masala Chickpeas – A quick, easy, comforting and filling dinner idea using delicious plant-based ingredients that will nourish your body.
White potatoes has such a bad reputation now, along with bread, rice…etc, but I don’t see anything wrong with eating potatoes every now and then as part of a balanced diet. True, sweet potato is better for you as it offers an impressive serving of vitamin A which white potato lacks, but it’s still a good form of carbohydrate to include in your diet.
The sun decided to come out today (yay!) so it’s the perfect opportunity to share this simple watermelon cucumber and mint salad. To me, those three ingredients define summer, especially watermelon! When combined, they make the perfect side salad or snack.
I know I’m not alone when I say this – I’m obsessed with avocados! Another thing that I love is bruschetta – the crispy bread it’s served on, the flavours and the simplicity of the idea! I’ve made simple tomato and basil bruschetta many times, then one day it occurred to me, why not add avocado? It made perfect sense.
Hummus is something that I eat every single day without fail! I eat it on the side of main meals with salads and cooked vegetables, and it’s also one of my go-to snacks. I like to have some peeled chopped carrots in the fridge so when I’m feeling peckish, all I have to do is open the fridge, take out the hummus and carrots and devour! I also like to have it with rice cakes when I run out of carrot sticks and I’m too lazy to peel more!
These fries will change your life! Well not really, but if you’re trying to be healthier but still want to enjoy chips or ‘fries’ from time to time (or everyday!) then this might just make your life a little bit brighter.
Crispy and golden on the outside, soft in the middle and an absolute delight to look at! You won’t want to go back to plain potatoes ever again!
Guacamole goes with everything: salads, vegetables, meat, in sandwiches…I make so many different variations all the time depending on what ingredients I have, but mostly how lazy I’m feeling! Usually, I’ll scoop a ripe avocado onto a plate, mash it with a fork, add lots of fresh lemon juice and a sprinkle of pepper and call it ‘Guacamole’. It tastes so good and fresh simply like that, but if you’re having Mexican food (say Fajitas!) then you have to do it properly.
