Warm Kale, Chickpea and Sweet Potato Salad

Winter is a time for warm and hearty meals. I love warm salads – they are always so colourful and full of flavour. Today I made warm kale, chickpea and sweet potato salad, which is easy to prepare, nutritious and very filling. This salad could be served cold as well as warm. However, if you […]

Butternut Squash, Chickpea and Kale Curry

Butternut squash, chickpea and kale curry is my favourite curry at the moment. This warming dish is so creamy and comforting – that’s what you need just now when it gets so chilly in the evenings and all you want to do is sit in front of the fire with something wholesome. I served my […]
