Wholesome Threesomes


Using 3 beautiful ingredients to showcase freshness and flavour means less shopping and chopping more time for planning the next meal! The two recipes below are my mainstays during this unsettling weather, sunny and springy one minute, arctic winds and snow the next!


Baked Sweet Potatoes with Caramelised Onions & Goat Cheese

Serves 4

4 large sweet potatoes, well scrubbed
2 large onions, sliced thinly
125 grams goat cheese
a little olive oil
salt and pepper

Pre-heat oven to 200C and place sweet potatoes rubbed with a some olive oil, on a baking sheet. Cook until tender, about an hour depending on size.
Meanwhile, slow cook the onions on a very low heat, stirring regularly and adding a little water to prevent them getting too "caramelised",in the oil, will take about 40mins.
Cut the sweet potatoes in half lengthways and place them cut-side up on baking tray, scatter with onions, slice or crumble over the goat cheese. pop back into the oven until cheese melts.
Serve with a crunchy green salad with balsamic dressing.


Thai Thighs

12 boned and skinned chicken thighs
1 cup coconut cream
2 tablespoons red curry paste
salt n pepper
a lime if you have one


Mix the curry paste with the coconut cream in a small bowl. Place the chicken thighs in a non-reactive casserole dish, cover with coconut cream mix, leave to marinate as long as you can, preferably 2 hours but can go into a pre-heated oven at 180C for about 40 minutes.
Serve with basmati rice, a squeeze of lime and some coriander if you have any handy.


I'm heading to my local market now,I have set myself a £10 challenge for this weeks shopping, so will be  using lots of veg and trying to find the best deal on meat. Will keep you posted on how I do.

Love Food X
