So how was your September? Settled back in to work and school? Or just enjoying the last of the long days before the clocks go back…Whatever you did I hope you enjoyed my tasty recipes and even got to try a few. Let’s just have a quick recap before moving full swing into Autumn!
First stop in September was a trip to Egypt for the Inspired by Egypt – Courgette and Chickpea Salad with Dukkah, an easy and delicious vegan salad with bags of flavour, I am still sprinkling my ‘Dukkah’ too!
Next up Inspired by Korea – Vegan Asparagus and Ginger Pancakes, another vegan treat and a chance to use some of the amazing combinations I picked up from a Korean cooking course in the summer. I choose to make a vegan option but for this recipe, but please do try with other ingredients such as prawns and shredded chicken.
Still clinging onto the idea of summer, I decided to cool things down with Inspired by Guatemala – Coffee, Banana and Chocolate Condensed Milk Ice Cream, super easy and as well as an after dinner treat can be added to different milk of your choice to make a really yummy iced coffee.
Starting to feel to strain of cooking several meals a day, I next wanted to make something that I could use as tasty lunch leftovers, with the added benefit of being filling and healthy, so I created the Inspired by Jordan – Oven Baked Fragrant Rice with Crispy Chickpeas and a Parsley Lemon and Cucumber Sauce.
Lastly in September, I wanted to get back into baking using old ideas combined with new flavours, I think I hit the spot with the Inspired by Kenya – Ginger Drizzle Sponge Cake,so much so I have been asked to make it again for a friend. Really great with a cuppa, coffee or to be honest just on its own!
