Kyk, party bestanddele is nou maar eenmaal ’n wonderlike kombinasie, soos vars kruie en suurlemoen. Of basiliekruid en tamatie. Sit nou ’n bietjie fetakaas by en almal gaan hul lippe aflek. Moenie huiwerig wees om ’n heel hoender soos dié plathoender voor te berei nie – volg net die stappe, dis regtig maklik. As die hoender só gaargemaak word, lyk dit indrukwekkend, word mooi eweredig gaar en is baie maklik om in porsies op te sny.’n Besonderse ete!
Flavours that you remember for a very long time – that’s true of this lovely winter recipe. I developed this recipe a few years ago to show how easy and delicious it is to use Cecilia’s Farm dried fruit when cooking. This has remained one of my huge favourites. I hope you and your family will enjoy it as much as we still do.
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.
Lemon and peas are delicious together and, in this risotto, you can see why.
Risotto is a popular Italian rice dish that can be served as a starter, main course or side dish. Arborio rice is a short grain rice and gives this dish its typical creamy, soft texture. Stock is gradually stirred into the rice so that it can cook slowly, but it should not be cooked until it is completely soft. This simple combination is divine and can be enjoyed as a main meal or light meal without the chicken.
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.
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.
This recipe was a happy accident made with a bit of this and a bit of that from the fridge. I hope your family enjoys it as much as mine did. You can prepare this lasagne with store-bought lasagne sheets or make your own fresh pasta. Making fresh pasta is not difficult and quite a lot of fun for the whole family to assist with. And the flavour and texture is just sooo good!
Min dinge kan by die smaak en delikate tekstuur van tuisgemaakte vars pasta kersvashou. Dis dalk ’n bietjie meer moeite, maar dit absoluut werd, want tuisgemaakte vars pasta is iets besonders. En dis nogal ’n prettige aktiwiteit vir die hele gesin of ’n groep vriende om sommer só saam te kook en te kuier.
Homemade convenience food at its best – a tasty, yet simple mince mixture. Everyone knows a bolognaise mixture on pasta, but have you tried mince on a baked potato or roasted sweet potato? This recipe is so easy to prepare and you can be quite creative with all the different ways to turn the mince into a new meal every time.
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.
