Roasted Sweet Potato Salad with Spring Onion and Goats Cheese

Roasted Sweet Potato Salad with Spring Onion and Goats Cheese

Now apart from my last post on the summer fresh and easy umami chickpea sandwiches, the bulk of 2015 has been written up as sweet posts, including Momofuku’s cinnamon brown butter bun pie, amarula spiked chocolate pudding pots and coconut brown butter cookies with the exception of my Valentine’s Day inspired heart shaped champagne and truffle risotto. Time to give you a more balanced approach to cooking! Today I have for you an absolute stunner – Sweet Potato salad with spring onion and goats cheese. This stunner has been adapted from Ottolenghi’s arsenal of glorious recipes. Now as you may recall, I’ve succeeded at emulating Ottolenghi’s sweet potato cakes, which I still fantasise and salivate over.

There’s enough potato in this significant salad to serve as a meal in itself for 4-5 people, or as a part of a larger gathering of food, for 8-10 people. But I would definitely size it down and serve it to myself for a gratifying and fire-crackingly flavourful lunch or dinner – nutritiously comprising of gluten and grain free carbs along with a handful of vegetables and sprinkling of protein.

Open Face Caprese Sandwich

I am in the process of researching an imaginary trip to Italy.

Rome, Milan, Florence, maybe the Tuscan countryside, and wine country.

I think my version of a dream holiday in Eataly involves waking up early to beat the long queues spiralling alongside the museums and art galleries, with a mandatory quick stop at a local cafe for a double espresso. After the gallery/museum of the day, walk around one of the many quaint squares and their attached by lanes, poking around the local stores and boutiques, collecting pantry essentials (truffles, olive oils, cheeses, herbs, you get the gist!) and enjoying the local vibe. Next stop – a trattoria or deli

Monsoon Salad

  There is little in the world half so wonderful as enjoying the Mumbai monsoon, the rain lashing against the grey Arabian Sea, and local chaat wallahs converting themselves into butta wallahs, dishing out mean masala and lemon doused corn on the cob. My serenade to the city’s prettiest season is this wonderfully hearty warming […] Read more…

Olive Oil Cake

Red Wine, Balsamic Vinegar, Vanilla Bean This is an incredibly Italian inspired recipe, traditionally made in Italy and called a Torta di Cioccolato di Olio di Oliva, it simply replaces the butter or vegetable oil for olive. The result is a moist, dense and loaf like cake, more bready than cakey, with an amazing olive […] Read more…

Strawberry, Balsamic and Rocket Salad
