My easy kedgeree recipe is just that – easy. It is 10 minutes of effort for a perfect breakfast, brunch or a quick supper. This dish melds together the flavours of creamy curried rice with smoky mackerel and sweet spring onions. I think this version is also healthier since I have cut out the butter, reduced the oil and used natural yoghurt to give the creaminess without sacrificing on taste.

I have a very unhealthy obsession with a very healthy soup. I am talking about Vietnamese pho – otherwise know as chicken noodle soup. This dish consists of rice noodles in a delicious chicken broth flavoured by a combination of spices such as cinnamon, star anise, cloves and cardamom. I don’t think I have the words to explain to you in this post about how good this tastes.
Yummy. Sierra Leone style (salone style) pork ribs, well that’s just heaven on a plate. The recipe is pretty easy to make and you will have most of the main ingredients in your pantry already. Whiz everything into a paste and marinate the meat for a few hours so that the flavour seeps into it. Then throw in the oven and about 40 minutes later out comes your roasted pork ribs ‘salone style’.
So it’s cold outside and time to curl up in front of the fire and eat deliciously warming soups. I am also looking for 10 minutes of effort for a really ‘lick my plate clean’ soup. So I came up with this roasted butternut squash soup, made creamy with coconut and spiced with ginger and fragrant cardamom. It is an easy soup recipe suitable for vegans and vegetarians.
In West Africa, no special occasion is complete without this traditional dish of jollof rice. Firewood is lit well before dawn under huge pots whilst piles and piles of onions, chillies and other accompaniment are prepared. Dozens of cups of jollof rice are cooked in anticipation of it being the main dish at festivities. The base of this dish is rice and tomatoes to which everyone adds in their own ‘authentic’ ingredients. Mine, well coconut. I love how the tomato and coconut flavours blend together to produce a fragrant and gorgeous coloured rice that tastes divine.
The other day I made coleslaw to challenge‘vegetablism’. Is that a word? That and of course because it was part of my Sierra Leonean feast at Christmas. This was my friend’s view – vegetables are a waste of space on a plate and just take up precious space necessary for more meat. Me – so you don’t even eat coleslaw? Him – nope, not even coleslaw. So of course I knew better and would change his mind.
You like pancakes, you like ginger and you like cinnamon. Then Christmas is the perfect excuse to combine these three to make deliciously aromatic gingerbread pancakes.
Who does not like pancakes? Or should I start with how do you like your pancakes? In my kitchen, golden fluffy nutmeg or cinnamon flavoured American pancakes are certainly a breakfast and brunch favourite. Topped with fruit and cold ice cream they are pure heaven.
Christmas spice mixes are one of those very easy edible gifts that you can whip up in a couple of minutes. They are particularly fun to make with kids as they love all that measuring out, shaking up and sticking on labels. They will like you even more when you continue on with them to make that old Christmas favourite the gingerbread man.
The combination of sweet roasted butternut squash, bittersweet chocolate and beans in a smoky tomato sauce rich with cinnamon, cumin and chillies is almost enough to turn me vegetarian. Especially as it is also healthy, gluten free and combines some of my favourite things in one lip smacking dish.
