Aubergine and pumpkin tagine with caramelised onions (Vegan)

It’s that time of the year again (already ?), yay!

Supermarkets and stores are filled with gigantic pumpkins and all you can do is give in to their appealing and cheerful orange hue and pick your favourite one.  

There are so many things we can do with pumpkin such as vegetarian hamburgers, pumpkin pie, pumpkin jam (we do that a lot in Morocco!) and of course a scary jack o’lantern.

Moroccan Shepherd's Pie with Roasted Garlic Sweet Potato Mash

Winter has finally arrived in London! Not that I am ecstatic about it but somehow it feels right to finally dig my winter coat, gloves and ear muffles out of my wardrobe. I had missed them, had you not?

The weather forecasts are predicting very cold and rainy days ahead of us. Weeelllll, more precisely they are predicting a storm, the Jonas storm. You know the one that hit NYC a few days ago. But unlike our dear Big Apple we won’t get any snow, just rain. So it will be a Jonas storm, the British way, or at least for London.
