Saag gosht

Saag gosht, coriander salsa & bombay sweet potatoes

This is a family recipe handed down to my from my nana Perveen, who has been making me this dish my whole life. Everyone I make it for says it’s the best curry they’ve ever had. It’s definitely a banquet dish, so I would put it in a large serving dish for everyone to dig in alongside the potatoes, the salsa and the raita from page 87. The good news is, after the initial prep you can leave it cooking for a few hours, allowing you time with your guests. Most of the spices in this recipe we have used through the book, so you should have them in your cupboards.

Spanish braised chicken and chorizo stew

5-a-day Spanish braised chicken and chorizo stew

This contains lots of hidden veggies, contributing heavily to your 5-a-day. Serve to your guests with a mezze board and chunky bread for dipping. For yourself, savour and enjoy the

flavours! If you’re on the Shapeshifter or Transformer meal plans, feel free to add 100g canned cannellini beans to turn this into a hearty broth. A speed-up tip here is to use pre-cut chorizo. Most supermarkets sell it packaged and ready diced; it’ll save you time skinning and chopping a whole chorizo, plus they are usually in 70g pouches. This is a low-carb, high-protein and high-fibre dish so it’s great for Kickstarters and it’s good on fasting days, too.

choc pudding featured

Vegan Chocolate Pudding

I have never made anything quite like this before. I found the method of using the hot water to cover everything to make the sauce a little odd at first, but when I pulled the cake out of the oven – oh my. I was ready to convert to being vegan just for that! The pudding went down a treat amongst people I shared it with, and was polished off in no time. You know those puddings you get in little pots that come with the sauce on the top and you microwave them? It tasted like that, but better!!
