Goodwill Pie

Posted on

I didn’t completely follow the recipe, because I mixed the greens (kale and chard/mangold) in with the leeks, and I didn’t take the pie out to brown on the outside (it was stuck to the pan). I also didn’t make the gravy. Overall it was okay, but not worth the effort.

In this recipe, sweet potato noodles are served with spinach, mushroom, carrot and onion. I thought it was quite tasty.

Gluten-Free Sweet Potato Bread

Posted on

The original recipe is completely gluten-free, in addition to being yeast-free and vegan. For my version I used, instead of 300 grams of plain gluten-free flour, 95 grams of buckwheat flour, 100 grams of brown rice flour, 100 grams of coarse tapioca flour, 1½ teaspoons xanthan gum, 1½ teaspoons potato starch, and 1½ teaspoons ground flax meal.

Overall I thought it wasn’t quite as tasty as the gluten-free bread rolls, but it was easier to prepare.

Bean Stew with Sweet Potato

Posted on

I based this Brazilian-inspired bean stew using a recipe which is no longer available online. As usual, if someone wants the recipe I’ll type it on on request. I used black-eyed beans rather than black beans. The stew also contains onion, garlic, bell pepper, tomatoes, chilli and cilantro.

Roasted Root Vegetables

Posted on

I used 2 carrots, 3 beets, 2 sweet potatoes, 4 potatoes and 2 red onions in this mix. It was seasoned with 2 tablespoons olive oil; 1 teaspoon salt; 1 teaspoon dried rosemary; 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme; 3 toes minced garlic; 3 blanched, peeled and chopped tomatoes; and 1/2 teaspoon mild Hungarian paprika powder (quantities estimated). I cooked it covered for 45 minutes in a moderate oven, then removed the foil and let it cook an additional half hour.


This is nice as a side dish, or you can add some protein to make a full meal.

Sweet Potato Yokan

I gave this sweet potato jelly a try but unfortunately it was beautiful but not exactly to my taste.


Sweet Potato Tortellini Soup with Kale

Posted on


For this soup I made a vegetable broth and cooked kale, sweet pepper and tortellini in it. The tortellini was stuffed with a mix of roasted sweet potato, herbs de Provence, ricotta, Parmesan and salt, while the dough was made with flour, egg, salt and water. This dish is still nice even if you don’t make your own pasta, but the rich, creamy filling of fresh pasta brought it to a new level.
