Griddled Sweet Potatoes with Mint, Chilli and Smoked Garlic recipe from Shelina Permalloo's The Sunshine Diet cookbook. The smoked garlic in this dish intensifies the flavour. This is perfect hot, warm or cold and makes a change from traditional baked sweet potatoes.
Halloumi with Chilli from Nigella Lawson's Nigella Bites cookbook. This delicious vegetarian recipe can be grilled on the barbecue or simply fried in a pan. This is the sort of food that you can sit on the table for people idly to eat as they stand around, drink in hand. It looks beautiful, too, which is always an aid to proceedings.
