Spicy bolognese with sweet potato lasagna is a new discovery, a punchy spicy bolognese sauce with a few layers of sweet potatoes to replace the lasagna pasta layers. Making this dish a gluten free one with tons of flavors and frankly, the spicy-sweet touch is simply irresistible. Plus, to give some extra smooth texture to the lasagna, I’ve added a bechamel in the middle layer, just to smooth things out. The result is a delicious contrast of spicy, sweet and creamy lasagna. Talking sweet potatoes, those are the healthier choice to go with, they contains a lower glycemic index and carbs than normal potatoes, plus they contain more vitamin A which is good for the eyes. The sweet potato only “problem” would be its taste; it’s almost too sweet. But when it’s equilibrated with enough spicy element, it becomes this perfect match, a delicious one. The recipe is separated into 3 parts, first the making of…

Habanero hot peppers are not for everyone, most of the time you need to be brave to eat it, after all, they are pretty high on the scoville scale. The good news here is you can use the pepper in moderation accompany with some sweet factor (in this case pineapple) which help to neutralize the heat from the pepper. I use a homemade dehydrated habanero powder, which over time gets less and less spicy, making it tricky to dose up for a recipe. For this recipe you can use any style of hot pepper, the format your prefer wether it’s powder, sauce or even fresh. The dosage is all up to you, make sure to do it little by little to prevent a killing spicy dish. I particularly love habanero because of it’s got this extra fruity flavor most peppers don’t have. The challenging part with habanero is: it’s a quite powerful one, the kind of pepper that you cut…

This recipe is a bite into the tropics, brings you right to those caribbean islands, also is a great recipe for those people on eternal diet, like myself. You can spice it up to your liking and with whichever is your favorite hot pepper… mine are the habanero peppers. My husband happen to grow them and I obviously have too many, so I dehydrate them and make powder out of them. I’m not usually a big hot pepper lover but this one is special… the habanero has that fruity taste to it. I encountered with this hot pepper in Martinique, a caribbean island. Since then… I add it to many of my spicier recipes, like the spicy “ratatouille” spaghetti sauce with a bit of habanero pepper, it’s fantastic or I do “spicy cod fritters” which is a “typical” meal from the Antilles.
