Healthy (ish) butter chicken

Butter chicken is one of the nation's favourites, and for good reason! I know that you CAN make something that LOOKS like butter chicken and has a very lean sauce using fat-free yoghurt or something similar, but for me, butter chicken is one of those dishes that I can't compromise on. I think butter chicken needs butter, and cream and you can still make a healthier than normal version, that tastes amazing without having to compromise on those essential base flavours. There are lots of ...

Black bean, butternut squash & coconut curry

Curry is a fantastic meal to make if you are feeding a big group- you can prepare it in advance (in fact it often tastes even nicer if it's had a bit of time to 'brew' and is reheated), it's easy to scale up to feed the right number of people, and it freezes really well if you have lots of leftovers. It's also a great way to get in portions of healthy vegetables and pulses without even trying! I came up with this curry for a girls night in with a big group of friends- I needed to feed 16 ...

Slow-cooker sweet potato, lentil and coconut curry

This is a fantastic easy curry to make which requires little effort and cooks away beautifully on its own in the slow cooker. It's very easy to scale up if you need to make a big batch for a group of friends or family, and you can add in any extra veg you fancy- butternut squash, cauliflower, extra peppers all work well! Coconut milk really adds something extra special to a vegetarian curry, and although in Slimming World it is quite high in syns, even using light coconut milk, by the time ...

Sweet potato and coconut curry

Approaching a long-awaited winter break in the Lake District with a group of friends that I hadn't seen for 2 years, I had offered to cook on the Saturday night, and knew that I needed something that was both vegetarian (my friend Feebs was trialling a vegetarian month), and didn't involve a huge amount of concentration (as there was likely to be a lot of nattering!). I have made a sweet potato and lentil curry before, but this time I wanted to have a slightly more indulgent version with the ...

Vegan mushroom, chickpea and green lentil curry

This curry was inspired by one that my sister-in-law cooked when I was staying with her up in London- why had I never thought of combining chickpeas and lentils into one dish? I always find chickpea curries a bit too much without anything to break up the chickpeas, but mixed with lentils they just add a fantastic consistency and bulk. My brother and sister-in-law have been so lovely about having my husband and I to stay over the past few years- when we left London for Devon we envisaged ...

King prawn and sweet potato curry

I was excited when Iceland asked me to create a healthy dish using their frozen fish and seafood range- I love seafood, and I've been meaning to get more into our diet. I popped along to my nearest Iceland store to have a browse, and was so impressed by the range of frozen fish- I was very tempted to pick up the red snapper after watching the video of how Iceland freeze it at source- I quite liked the idea of a jerk style red snapper curry (might still do this at some point!), ...

Slow-cooker sweet potato and red lentil curry

I'm just back from a week away in Italy and I have overdosed on pasta and pizza for the moment, I came back really fancying a curry, and as I haven't had the chance to get to the shops yet it had to be made from the things in my cupboards. I love that sweet potatoes last so long- I always have them in the cupboard as they are such a useful ingredient! This curry is lovely on its own- the lentils take away a little of the richness of the sweet potatoes so that you can enjoy this without rice ...
