If you are finding you have lots of spare time on your hands during lockdown then why not try a new recipe. We have six recipes below from two great new cookbooks. From Lamb Kofta Curry to Salted Peanut Butter Cookies, there is sure to be something that tantalizes your tastebuds…
The East African Cookbook boasts a selection of recipes that reflects a cuisine that is modern and yet rooted in the traditional methods and tastes of East Africa.
Author Shereen Jog is a fifth-generation Tanzanian national who shares her recipes for delicious soups, salads, main dishes and desserts. Bursting with the flavours of East African and Indian spices, these recipes will inspire everyone to cook mouth-watering meals for family and friends alike.
Shereen is known for her creativity as she experiments and plays with flavours, using the abundance of fresh organic produce and the influence of a multi-cultural environment to prepare dishes that reflect the traditions of Arab, Swahili, Indian and colonial cuisines.
Super Natural pivots around an abundance of vegetables and natural, whole foods, celebrating seasonal produce, good fats and whole grains, pulses and legumes, and foods that are almost entirely free of refined carbohydrates and sugars. Best of all, the recipes are accessible, easy, budget friendly, beautiful and delicious. And for Sarah Graham’s loyal army of fans, Super Natural is a guide to living well and eating mindfully – a continuum of her highly popular cookbook Wholesome, which is heading towards its fifth printing.
Besides the health benefits of eating more vegetables and, ultimately, fewer animal products, Sarah also has a more altruistic motive, that of caring for our planet and being more aware of where our food comes from and how our eating impacts our world.
