Roasted pitas with tomato & corn

Roasted pitas with tomato & corn

Roasted pitas are a game-changing recipe. One evening my kids were in the mood for pizza, but there was just not enough time to make the dough. We cut open pitas to use as the pizza base and they were very impressed with this quick fix. Just don’t use too many toppings as it will become too heavy for the pita bases. The spices in the tomato sauce are something special and the combination of corn, tomato and cheese is so tasty. These pitas are perfect for a weekend or holiday treat and even work well as a snack around the braai.

Koue tamatiesop (Gazpacho)

Koue tamatiesop (Gazpacho)

Dié Spaanse-styl tamatiesop word koud voorgesit en is heerlik verfrissend op ’n warm dag. Dis perfek vir ’n ligte maaltyd of as voorgereg en smaak die volgende dag selfs nog lekkerder. Die sop is ook baie veelsydig, want dit kan soos hier onder, met suurroom of gewone jogurt en basiliekruidblare voorgesit word. Of geur dit met paprika of meer Tabasco vir ’n ekstra byt en sit met koljanderblare voor.

Pasta with eggs & green beans

Pasta with eggs & green beans

If you do not like green eggs and ham… why not try green beans and eggs.
Carbonara is a delicious and very popular pasta sauce, with egg as the main ingredient and often lots of cream and bacon added. I enjoy this simpler version, which is lighter and so quick and easy to put together. You could even serve it as a starter. Asparagus spears are delicious with eggs, but thin green beans or any other green veggies will be as good in this dish.

I get very excited when I think about this thick and flavourful soup. The roasted tomato flavours are more intense and interesting than an ordinary boiled soup and so easy to make. It’s ideal for a midweek meal or a comforting family weekend meal.

Growwe Italiaanse sop

Growwe Italiaanse sop

Hierdie groentesop is propvol Italiaanse geure. Die groente is in growwe stukkies gesny wat dit ’n regte koesterkos-sop maak. Die kombinasie van tamatie, soetrissie, eiervrug, ’n bietjie komyn en die kruie is ’n heerlike wintersete. Sit dit as vleislose ete voor of roer bone, kekerertjies, repies gaar hoender of spekrepies as proteïen by.

Roasted butternut soup with chickpeas

Roasted butternut soup with chickpeas

Everyone knows a butternut soup and there are many variations. This is definitely my favourite way to prepare this popular soup. Roasting the butternut with spices before blending it, enhances the natural sweetness of the butternut and adds a nuttiness to the flavour. The chickpeas are a great source of protein and also delicious when seasoned and roasted with spices. This soup is equally good as a family meal or to serve for a special meal.
