It’s the last weekend of the month again, folks, and I’m sure you know what that means by now. It’s recipe time.
This february’s main dish, however, isn’t entirely my own. It’s an adaptation of one of Sorted Food’s latest and, if you haven’t heard of them, I strongly suggest that you check out their 📽️ baked potato recipe video 📽️ before continuing.
They’re a great fun channel, fully focussed on food, with the knowledge of professional chefs but far more of a down to earth approach. I’ve been hooked on them for months.
Yet, for the first time today, I feel like I’m qualified to take on one of their recipes and give my own twist. Maybe even improve it. Because real mexican food has been passed down to me, through the generations, from real mexican chefs. And chillies, well, they’re kind of my thing.
So, for this month’s recipe, I’m taking their sweet potato stuffed with refried beans and giving it what they would call a “level up”!
Hello again everyone and welcome back to the third week in what I’ve recently decided will be a no sauce month. You know, to keep me on my toes a bit with a rather different selection of products.
Last week, I was going to feature a Mahi marinade but had to switch it out last minute for some tasty cheese truckles. I do need to actually show off a free sample or two at some point this month, though, so here’s some more vegan jerky from Cowley’s Fine Foods.
One sweet potato and one mushroom, a good indication of the range, now that they no longer seem to list their tofu jerky online.
At a glance, these products appear to only be slight variations on the sweet potato and mushroom ones that they sent me last time but I’m excited for them all the same.
The first of these, the sweet potato sort, didn’t impress me much in my last review but this particular product sounds a lot closer to the heatless “Texan Barbecue” variety I mentioned in my introduction to the company.
And, as for the “HOT Shrooms!”, well, if they’re anything like the “Shiiiitake! Thats Hot!” then I’m going to absolutely love them. Albeit at a rather leisurely pace.
Hello again heat eaters, today I intend to bring you a couple of things from Cowley’s Fine Foods but, for starters, let’s just look at their mild and flavourful Sweet Potato and Jalapeño Jerky.
It’s an interesting combination of flavours that isn’t clarified at all by its packaging.
Hey folks, I mentioned my fellow food blogger Dana from I’ve Got Cake before, when I modified her brownie recipe, but this time I’m straight up sharing one of her posts.
You see, I had some friends over for boardgames yesterday, chilli boardgames that you’ll be hearing about soon, and I needed a quick, thematic snack that fit a wide range of dietary requirements.
The answer? Dana’s sweet potato and sriracha dip, simplified just a step further using a readily available vegan sriracha mayo instead of the regular sauce and a much harder to find vegan version of standard mayonaise.
It came out smooth, even creamy, and rather delicious, with a nice top of a two out of ten after-heat. It was gone in no time but the recipe remains and is so very simple.
I’ll let the author fill you in on the rest:
Hello again folks, it’s time for another winter warmer.
Today’s recipe, however, is a little less sweet than our last, being less of a snack or desert and more of a full on meal. What we’re going to be making this week is a scotch bonnet and sweet potato stew.
