Here are a couple of Dean Edwards’ Recipes that are available on the Plate Up App:
Spiced Lamb Shoulder with Punchy Zhoug
Every now and then you try something new that blows your mind. I first tried zhoug when I was a guest judge on MasterChef in 2019. It was expertly paired with a beautifully cooked rack of lamb by a contestant called Amal Hassan. I couldn’t believe the flavour of this punchy green sauce, and once the show had aired I contacted Amal to beg her for the recipe. Luckily for me and for you, sharing is caring, so enjoy my take on Amal’s fabulous dish.
Roasted Butternut Squash Tagine
A North African tagine usually includes lamb, but what I love about the complex flavour profile is the sweetness that comes from the fruit, usually apricots, that’s used to balance the spice. Using naturally sweet butternut squash or even sweet potatoes instead of meat makes this recipe not only economical, but delicious too. I always serve this with herby couscous and some natural yogurt with some harissa stirred through.
Smoky Lentil and Bean Chilli
This is a vegetarian version of a classic chilli con carne. Puy lentils replace the minced beef in this one, but you won’t miss the meat. The lentils not only add flavour, but also a great texture. This is a really healthy and inexpensive family meal that I like to serve with rice, grated cheese and some soured cream. Ready-to-eat lentils are available in most supermarkets and should be easy to find.
Sticky Toffee Pudding
What can I say about this pudding? If I see this dessert on a menu when eating out, it’s as good as ordered. When cooking at home I like to add a good pinch of salt to the toffee sauce. I asked friends round when testing this recipe and they couldn’t believe it had been made in a slow cooker. I was buzzing because this just shows the diversity of dishes that can be created.
