Recipe Tag: kumara



Not only do I imagine we will be encouraged to eat less sugar in the future, but I am growing less and less fond of overly sweet desserts, preferring something fruit based. Sticky date pudding is one of my favourite desserts but, if you think about it, it is sugar on sugar with more sugar. In this recipe I have used the sweetness of dates, apples and orange kūmara to replace the refined sugar. I can’t live without ice cream to serve, but if you really want to be free of refined sugar, serve with plain yoghurt instead.



Sweet kūmara, spiced crunchy chickpeas, punchy kale salad, nutritious quinoa and creamy, smoky chipotle cashew sauce come together to make one of my all-time favourite bowls, filled to the brim with flavour and interesting textures. You’ll find chipotle in adobo sauce in the international section of most supermarkets or at specialty food stores. Each can contains about 4-6 chillies surrounded by a thick, smoky, hot sauce. To use them just remove one (or more) chillies from the can, along with as little or as much adobo sauce as you like. Transfer any leftovers to a glass jar and store in the fridge, where they will keep for 1-2 months.
