curried butternut squash soup

When it comes to butternut squash soup I’m usually on the  heavily gingered spicy side.

…. has been inspired by Amy Chaplin’s brilliant book at home in the whole food kitchen. Her coconut and quinoa pancakes are completely flour- and gluten-free, though unexpectedly tasty and tender.  If you want to go for the vegan version just replace the egg for a “chia egg”. The pancakes are prepared in a minute provided you haven’t forgotten to soak the quinoa before you went to bed. The slight citrus flavour of the pancakes went […]
