I’ve experimented with Yorkshire puddings ever since I started cooking. They were always my favourite part of a roast dinner, even when I ate meat. I’ve got so many fond memories of eating flat-as-a-pancake Yorkshires on a Sunday. I didn’t care, I loved them, risen or not. But nowadays, I settle for nothing short of epic Yorkies and love to make them the hero of my veggie roast.
I think roasting butternut squash whole like this is hands down the best way to cook this goliath root veg. No peeling, no chopping, just gorgeous, sweet, soft flesh. Once you’ve roasted it, it has a whole range of uses but this is one of my favourites. You’ll need to use Ras el Hanout, which isn’t as scary as it sounds (it’s an amazing Moroccan/middle eastern spice mix which is available from most supermarkets). Dunk warm bread into this for pure heaven. It’s delicious chilled too.
Be still my spicy, chili lovin’ heart! This is for those days when you need comfort food but you’ve already had takeaway 3 nights this week and feel like you need to give your body SOMETHING nutritious. This recipe feels awesomely indulgent but still packs a healthy punch. As always, top quality eggs make the difference.
