Having just returned from our back-packing travels with the kids, I promised you in our last post that I’d work on a Sri Lankan recipe… Well, after a successful attempt at a dish, I’m back to share the recipe with you! These are absolutely my most favourite street-food snack from our travels. Comforting, warm, stodgy, and yet packed with veg and flavour! Continue reading “Sri Lankan vegetable roti”
When Hannah told me she was off travelling with her family I was so intrigued and excited to know how back packing with children would work out; the food, the routine, the jet lag and was it all worth it? Here are my wide eyed questions and a little insight into Hannah’s family adventure in Sri Lanka! ~ Catherine
Despite the intermittent downpours and gail-force winds, we’re actually starting to see the occasional glimmer of summer here and there, and these patches of sunshine call for a summer dish! This risotto is just the freshest, most deliciously summery risotto we’ve ever had, and it was loved by baby, parents and even the preschooler. Continue reading “Green superhero risotto”
In our neck of London, almost every other shop near our house sells plantains. I never really considered using them before other than to make plantain chips, until a couple of years ago when a friend of mine lent me one of her auntie’s recipe books. Some dishes I tried did not turn out as anticipated, others were amazing and my absolute favourite one was a spicy plantain recipe. The use of plantain in a curry has stuck with me since and now even the kids love this mild version. The first time I made it, I told my 4 year-old it was “banana curry” and he was like “woah, that’s amazing. I’m going to eat it all” (and he did!). Continue reading “Groovy Plantain & Coconut Curry”
Wow, life has been pretty “jam-packed” for all of us recently and of course with the run up to Christmas it just keeps getting more crazy. Catherine’s going back to work this week (good luck, Cat!), so we’re sharing with you a super-douper easy-peasy jam recipe. Now THIS is the kind of Christmas jam you won’t mind getting stuck in! (ok, I’m done with the puns). Simple, delicious, packed with goodness and free from refined sugar. What’s not to love?! Continue reading “Winter berry and pear jam”
You may have already heard of ‘Buddha’ bowls if you’ve ventured around the plant-based/ hippie/ foodie scene at all. So much delicious freshness in one bowl, and they look so lovely and colourful too. WAAAYY too much faff for feeding a baby and the whole family, right?! Well, I recently realised that it’s pretty much one of our family’s default dinner dishes although it’s often thrown onto a plate or directly onto the baby’s highchair tray. I mean, honestly, who has the time to beautifully arrange food for a baby when you know little fingers are going to pick up and eat a bit but then relocate the rest to the floor/up the wall/ in their hair? (all of these things actually happen here every. single. day).
