As you've probably gathered, we don't eat a lot of meat (Little B doesn't really get too much of a say when I cook!) and lately I am forever on the hunt for recipes. I've never been into cooking much (I'd much rather be cooked for) but all of a sudden I want to cook. All the time. And when Little B had gone out for the day, I got my bake on and made a butternut squash tagine which wasn't too bad for a first time!
Butternut Squash (I never use a whole one - but probably half)
Sweet Potato (again, I'm one for estimating!)
Courgette (I diced mine, but it's also nice grated)
1 GF stock cube
Cous Cous (you can always use ready made or from scratch)
Firstly I roasted off my butternut and sweet potato in the oven with a drizzle of oil and some seasoning. Whilst this was cooking, I fried the peppers and onions on the hob and added the courgette and sweetcorn shortly after.
Ten minutes before you're due to serve up, cook your cous cous in a pan of boiling water till the water has been absorbed by the cous cous (this normally takes 5/10 minutes). We then seasoned it with a splash of paprika and some finely grated carrot to add to the flavour.
Serve alongside the tagine and some green salad, and for that extra delicious flavour, add a dollop of Tzatziki - making this fairly Summery meal warm up those Winter tummies.
