This is my favourite way to use up any kind of squash (butternut, crown prince and kobocha are my usual go-to) and you can freeze it in batches for another day.
The croutons are just chickpeas, roasted in spices until they are crispy. This recipe makes a whole batch of them – but you can pop them in the fridge and use them to top soups, salads and stews. It’s all completely vegan, and honestly so easy.
For home growers, kitchen gardeners and those with allotments, eating seasonally happens automatically. But for the rest of us, it can be a bit more of a mystery. In these regular blog posts I try to demystify it a bit – by sharing what’s in season now – and where in Cardiff to find it.
A recent article from The Guardian suggests that more than half of the 24 million pumpkins carved for Halloween in Britain this year will not be eaten. This is bonkers; save your pumpkin guts from the food waste caddy, and turn them into something delicious instead!
We all know that we should be trying to eat more ‘seasonally’; food in season is often fresher, tastier and more nutritious than food consumed out of season (which often has to shipped thousands of miles, too).
But how easy is it to eat seasonally? In these new regular blog posts I’ll share a list of what’s in season each month – and find some local restaurants / cafes who are putting seasonal specials on the menu, right now.
