Add the peppers, chicken and flour, and fry for a further 5 mins or until the chicken is golden brown and the flour is starting to take on a a biscuty colour. Stir in the Cajun spice mix and garlic, then slowly add the chicken stock, stirring all the time. Add the okra, passata and some seasoning and simmer for 20 mins, uncovered, over a medium heat. Stir frequently during cooking to loosen the flour from the base of the pan. Sprinkle over the spring onions and serve with rice and black beans.

One-pot chicken & bacon stew

Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Heat the oil in a large flameproof casserole with a lid. Fry the chicken pieces in batches for 5 mins on each side until well browned, then transfer to a plate. Sizzle the bacon in the casserole for a few mins until beginning to crisp. Stir in the carrots and onions, then cook for 5 mins until starting to soften. Stir in the flour and tomato purée and cook for 1 min more. Finally, splash in the vinegar and stir well. Pour in the stock and bring to a simmer. Add the bay, cream and seasoning. Slide in the chicken pieces and scatter over the potatoes, turning everything over a few times so that the potatoes are immersed in the sauce. Put the lid on and place in the oven. After 40 mins, remove from the oven and stir in the mushrooms. Cover again and cook in the oven for 10 mins more until the chicken is cooked through and tender but not completely falling off the bone. You can now turn off the heat, and chill and freeze some or all of it (see freezing tips, below). If eating straight away, cook for 10 mins more, then sprinkle over the herbs and serve.

To spatchcock the chicken, flip it over so the backbone is facing you. Using a sturdy pair of kitchen scissors, cut down either side of the backbone, then discard. Turn the chicken over and push down firmly on the breastbone to flatten it out, then make a few slashes in each leg joint. (Or you can ask your butcher to spatchcock the chicken for you.) Put the chicken in a large sealable plastic bag, or a dish.

Next, make the marinade. Rinse the preserved lemon under running water to remove some of the brine, then separate the middle from the peel (the middle part – the flesh and pips – is very sour) and discard the middle. Finely chop the soft peel until it resembles a paste. Tip into a bowl and add the remaining marinade ingredients and a pinch of salt. Whisk until combined, then pour roughly half the marinade over the chicken and rub it into all the nooks. For the best flavour, leave the chicken to marinate overnight, covered, in the fridge (store the remaining marinade in the fridge too), but if you’re short on time, 2 hrs marinating will do.

Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Tip the onions and beetroot into a large roasting tin (use your best tin and you can serve the dish straight from it), drizzle with oil and season well. Toss the vegetables to coat and spread them out towards the edges of the tin. Place the chicken on top, skin-side up, and pour over any juices from the bag or dish. Season the chicken well and roast for 45 mins.

Meanwhile, bring a pan of water to the boil and add the spelt. Cook for 20 mins or until tender, then drain and set aside. Halve each avocado, remove the stones and peel. Chop each piece in half again, if you like. Char the avocado pieces on a hot griddle pan for a few mins – this will give it a smoky flavour.

Remove the remaining marinade from the fridge and very gently toss the avocado pieces in it, then set them aside. Pour the remaining marinade into a small pan and bring to a rapid boil, then continue cooking for 2-3 mins until you have a sticky glaze.

Remove the roasting tin from the oven, lift the chicken onto a plate or board and stir the spelt into the vegetables. Place the chicken back on top, dot the avocado pieces around the tin and brush the thickened glaze over the chicken. Return to the oven for a further 5-10 mins. To check the chicken is cooked, pierce the thickest part with a skewer. The juices should run clear, not pink. If you need to, return the chicken to the oven for a further 5-10 mins, then check again.

Lift the chicken onto a plate, cover loosely with foil and return the roasting tin with the vegetables to the oven for a further 10 mins until the avocado starts to soften. To serve, nestle the chicken back into the tin of veg, scatter over a few small watercress leaves and serve the rest on the side with the yogurt.

The day before, put the whole dried tilapia in a large bowl, cover with cold water and leave to soak overnight.

The next day, put the white aubergines and Scotch bonnet chillies in a saucepan, cover with cold water and the lid, then bring to the boil over a medium-high heat. Cook for 10-12 mins, then drain and set aside.

Meanwhile, put the chopped onion in an asanka pot and grind to a paste. If you don’t have an asanka pot, you can use a food processor or blender – if using a blender, drain away any water after blending.

Drain the water from the tilapia, then rinse the fish under cold running water to remove any excess salt.

In a separate pan over a medium-high heat, bring the green plantains, eggs and just enough water to cover to the boil. Once boiling, add the tilapia. Cook for 10-12 mins, then remove from the heat. Take the fish out of the pan using a slotted spoon and transfer to a plate. Leave to rest. Drain the plantains and eggs, then fill the pan with cold water and leave to stand for 5 mins.

Meanwhile, put the chillies in the asanka pot or food processor with the onion, and grind. When the mixture is smooth, add a 2-3 aubergines and grind again. Continue this process until all the aubergines have been added. Add the peanut butter, then season with half the shrimp cube, if using, and the aromat, if needed (taste for seasoning before adding the aromat).

Rinse the fermented salted fish under cold running water. Heat the red palm fruit & rapeseed oil in a frying pan set over a medium heat, and fry the fermented salted fish for around 3-5 mins. Remove the fish from the pan using a slotted spoon or fish slice, and remove any visible bones. Add the fish to the asanka pot and grind into the aubergine mixture. Discard any fish bones.

Add the sliced onions to the frying pan and fry for 3-5 mins, then add the aubergine mixture and stir well. Reduce the heat to low and cook for 3-5 mins. Mix in the sardines. Cook over the lowest heat for around 2 mins more, and mix everything together well.

Transfer the mixture to an asanka pot or serving bowl. Drain the plantains and peel and halve the boiled eggs, then add these to the pot. Top with the avocado and tilapia, then serve.
