Hey peeps, how about this for a colourful breakfast idea : Baked sweet potato pancakes (Sweet potato Dutch baby pancakes) with an orange cranberry compote.
Sometimes nothing but good, simple, warming food will do like this warming anchovy, chilli and sweet potato gratin that is perfect for both Thanksgiving and Christmas.
This West African slow cooker duck and plantain curry has all my favourite things in one big melting pot. Seriously, think spice hit from the ginger, cardamom and curry, rich flavour from the duck and coconut milk and Sierra Leonean sweetness from the sweet potato and plantain.
This open-faced omelette topped with roast okra, roast sweet potato and crispy fried SPAM that you see right here was made in both the UK and Kenya at the same time.
This rustic chickpea soup is just the thing for cold, cold days and even colder nights. Nights when you want to sleep in front of the fire to avoid leaving the warmth for those freezing cold sheets.
I think I am head over belly in love with galettes. Which means you get this roasted onion and sweet potato galette that was my breakfast and lunch in one.
I need some more beetroot recipes in my life. Like this sweet roasted beetroot salad with sweet potato and pear balanced by some tangy feta and some crunch from walnuts. Simple, beautifully coloured and great flavours.
This year I want to incorporate okra into the Sierra Leonean inspired Christmas menu. My first recipe is this roasted sweet potato and okra salad with a bite from the spring onions and chilli and a tart lime salad dressing. This is my base salad recipe but I will add different veggies, meats etc to it depending on what we have going on the day.
These will be the best baked sweet potato fries of your life. They are lip smacking, smoky paprika’y’, just one more sweet potato fry good. And since they are baked, they are guilt free in my book. So I have them as a snack, served along some burgers or as a dinner side. And emmm, well when ever really.
