Cooking with Coconut Milk

Coconut milk is actually a great dairy free option for any of your recipes and it’s known to be rich and creamy. If you are looking for a cream replacement, then look no further! It’s a simple ingredient that can turn basic into brilliant in an instant! It’s especially common in Asian cuisines such as thai and curry. Try this Spiced Curry Coconut Rice, for example or this Creamy Thai Soup.

Cooking with Butternut Squash

Butternut squash is the ideal veggie to add to your recipes since it’s so versatile. Its sweet and savory profile are ideal to level up any meal. It’s a great replacement for potatoes and is an ideal partner for chicken, as this recipe for Butternut Squash and Chicken Rice demonstrates.

How to Know When Butternut Squash Is Ripe

Knowing which butternut squash to take home from the store can be tricky, but there are a few simple signs you can look out for that will help you choose the ripest produce in stock:

  • Color: When it comes to butternut squash darker is better.
  • Complexion: Ensure there are no discoloured patches and blemishes on the surface of the squash.
  • Weight: Grab two of a similar size and compare weight, the heavier the better.
  • Sound Check: Tap the surface and check for a hollow sound. 

If your squash meets all these requirements, then take it to the check-out!
