Hot Stuff.

I dropped Jon off at the dentist last week and used the time to have a look round the Asda supermarket. To be honest I didn't even know there was an Asda in Redcar - last time I was there it was a Netto. I don't really get excited about supermarkets but I had time to kill and bought a few bits and bobs - including a bag of sweet potatoes for £1.
I had a butternut squash at home so decided to use them together and make a curry.
I added a few bits and bobs to a Slimming World recipe and made the most of what we had in.

4 sweet potatoes
1 butternut squash
2 teaspoons ginger
2 teaspoons garlic (I use asda chilled garlic - 2 of)
2 teaspoons chilli powder
2 teaspoons paprika
2 teaspoons dried coriander
2 teaspoons cumin (recipe said turmeric but I didn't have any in)
2 cubes frozen coriander
2 cubes frozen chilli
2 tins chopped tomatoes
1 pint veg stock

Stir all dry ingredients together add to garlic, coriander and chilli in a pan and stir in tomatoes. Transfer to casserole dish and add stock and cubed potatoes and squash. Cook in oven till tender - although it could be cooked on hob. I had a few green beans which I stirred in at end.


  1. Yum !
    That looks so good. Any left over vegs always go in a curry at my home

    cheers, parsnip

  2. I share your love of the hot stuff. I did a Cantonese fish dish tonight. And may have gone a bit overboard with the ginger and chilli...

    1. You can never go overboard in this hoise Jessica! lol!

  3. D'you know, I've never had a curry, but that looks very like a bit of heat though!
    We were up near Whitby for a day or two last week but didn't find that Simply Food M&S round Loftus area. Is it in Guisborough or Redcar maybe?
    I'm seriously thinking go going to Slimming World to trim off a few dozen pounds, wish you lived a bit nearer, you're a motivator!! TTFN.

    1. Mrs G.H. The postcode for M&S Simply food TS6 6UX - Skippers Lane.

    1. It was Roger - I am really experimenting with the different spices now.

  5. I have just scribbled this down Denise - it is vegetarian and I know one or two veggies who like to drop in - so it might be good to try.

    1. Pat I think I would add some ground cloves next time - give it a fuller flavour,Dx

  6. Sounds easy to chew - probably a must after the dentist. It's 15 years since I had any teeth of my own to chew with. I must say I've quite forgotten what it's like.

  7. That sounds delicious, it is certainly soup weather here....


Thank you for your comments, always nice to know somebody has taken the time to let me know what they think.
