Dips and Sides

Roasted Squash Dip

This roasted squash dip is a great alternative to hummus during the autumn and winter months.

Baba Ganoush

Baba Ganoush

Baba Ganoush is a delicious middle eastern smoky aubergine dip and a great alternative to hummus. Traditionally, the aubergines are charred over an open flame so that the flesh becomes soft and has a rich smoky taste.

Creamy Sweet Potato Hummus

Hummus is so simple to make and easy to experiment with since you can add almost any vegetable to transform the taste. I have created a variation on my perfect hummus recipe by adding sweet potatoes which provide a rich creamy texture.

Mint Pea Falafel with Butter Beans

Mint Pea Falafel with Butter Beans

Inspired by the flavours in the mint pea dip I recently made, I decided to experiment and transform it into a falafel. This recipe for mint pea falafel is similar to my sweet potato falafels that I made last week. Instead I have substituted the chickpeas and sweet potato for the butter beans and peas.

Sweet Potato and Chickpea Falafel

Sweet Potato and Chickpea Falafel

Since I’m completely obsessed with hummus, falafel is also one of my favourite foods as it is basically the same ingredients. Instead of a creamy dip, a delicious blend of chickpeas, tahini, lemon juice, cumin and coriander are all rolled into a ball and baked in the oven. In this recipe, I have added sweet potato which makes the falafel even more delicious.

Mint Pea Dip

This mint pea dip is simply delicious and perfect for a summer dip. Fresh mint complimented by the zesty lemon makes the taste so light and refreshing. The addition of the tahini provides a creamy texture and rich nutty flavour to contrast with the lemon and mint tones.

My Perfect Hummus

My Perfect Hummus

This is my recipe for the perfect hummus – call it my ‘signature’. I love the creamy texture of the tahini blended with chickpeas and the subtle spice of cumin with the tangy lemon. The tamari adds a rich earthy depth to the taste.
