Spiced braised new potatoes


50g 2 oz butter

1 small onion, finely chopped

1 garlic clove, crushed

1 teaspoon grated fresh root ginger

1 teaspoon ground coriander

½ teaspoon ground turmeric

½ ground cumin

1 kg (2 lb) small waxy potatoes, diced and chopped

300 ml (1/2 pint) vegetable stock

2 ripe tomatoes diced and chopped fresh coriander to garnish

Salt and pepper


Melt butter in a saucepan, add the onion, garlic, ginger and spices and cook over a low heat, stirring frequently, for 5 minuets. Add the potatoes and salt and pepper, stir well and then add the stock and tomatoes to the pan.

Bring to boil, then reduce the heat. Cover and simmer gently for 20 minuets.

Remove the lid and simmer, uncovered, for a further 15-20 minuets until the liquid is reduced and thickened to a glaze. Serve hot, garnished with some chopped fresh coriander.

In my recipe I also add some diced yam with my potatoes.

I have develop a passion for natural and healthy life style, starting with a vegan life style including regular exercising each day. Which helped to feel inspired and happy within myself. my diet is very restricted due to severe allergies! When ever a food triggers a hostile response from the body's immune system the result is an allergy attack, which on occasion may be life-threatening although it's relatively simple to identifying problem foods, avoiding them completely is not always easy. My journey with allergies hasn't been easy "but" it has helped me to becomes a stronger person and would like to share and encourage others to never get discouraged, there's always light at the end of the tunnel if you keep persevering.
