Citrus & cabbage salad with dill

Citrus & cabbage salad with dill

Sometimes I can imagine the flavours of a dish before I actually make it. That is exactly what happened with this salad. Citrus and cabbage works well and cabbage, cucumber and dill combines well together. Then, surely all four of them should work together? Allow the cabbage and cucumber to marinate in the sauce for a bit to give a slight pickle flavour, but it should still be fresh. That perfect balance between pickled and fresh makes this salad ideal with braaied chicken, pork or fish.

Oosterse wortelslaai

Oosterse wortelslaai

’n Gewone wortelslaai sal nooit weer dieselfde wees as jy eers hierdie weergawe met Oosterse geure gemaak het nie. Die slaaisous is gesonder as die tradisionele mayonnaise-sous en tog so lekker. Dit kan vir ander slaaie ook gebruik word, veral ’n groen slaai met vrugte, soos appels en druiwe of groente soos groenboontjies en broccoli. Dit pas by die gemmer en sojasous-mengsel. Onthou dat sojasous baie sout bevat, so maak seker jy het ’n ligte southand.

Italian baby marrow bake

Italian baby marrow bake

Veggies can brighten up any meal and this combination of brinjal, baby marrows, red pepper, tomatoes and onions is not only colourful but delicious too. The topping of cheese, herbs and lemon rind, is much healthier than a rich cream based sauce, often used for side dishes like a potato bake. This side dish is bound to become the favourite at your next braai.

Roasted veggies with hummus-yoghurt sauce

Roasted veggies with hummus-yoghurt sauce

I could eat roasted veggies any day, especially if there’s cumin added! I also love hummus and in this dish it makes the perfect sauce. These veggies are also really versatile, they can be enjoyed as a light vegetarian meal or as a side dish with roasted chicken. Use them in any salad or stir into couscous and a handful or two of fresh coriander, basil leaves and roasted nuts. They are great at room temperature as part of a lunch box or delicious on pizzas or in sandwiches.

Nektarien-&-bloukaasslaai

Nektarien-&-bloukaasslaai

Slaai het deesdae ’n heeltemal nuwe betekenis en hoef lankal nie meer net blaarslaai met komkommer, tamatie en wortelrepies te wees nie. Slaaie kan ’n ete op hul eie wees of die fokuspunt van ’n eenvoudige ete. Wissel soms die bestanddele af vir ’n vinnige nuwe idee. Vrugte is ’n wonderlike bestanddeel in ’n slaai en saam met ’n paar ander vars elemente is hierdie ’n delikate, maar besondere smaaksensasie.

Green salad with fruit

Green salad with fruit

I love to cook with fruit. This is not necessarliy cooking jams or preserves, but rather ways to include what each season has to offer in everyday meals. A salad can be so much more than lettuce, tomato, cucumber and maybe an olive or two with some feta and a dressing. Salads can easily be the hero on the table and turn a meal into a feast – not only on the eyes, but for your taste buds too.

Appelslaai met kekerertjies & dukkah

Dukkah en kekerertjies met sappige appels, ’n paar kruieblare en saggekookte eiers is ’n lenteslaai uit die boonste rakke. Een van die lekkertes van hierdie tyd van die jaar, is dat daar wonderlike vars produkte is om mee kreatief te wees. Met net ’n paar bestanddele en ’n interessante geurmiddel kan jy met min moeite ’n ete gereed hê.

Geroosterde kekerertjies met speserye

Geroosterde kekerertjies met speserye

’n Eenvoudige speserymengsel met ’n skeut suurlemoensap en olie is perfek om kekerertjies in ’n opwindende element te omskep. Die kekerertjies word in dié mengsel gerooster tot dit bros is en dan is dit sommer ekstra veelsydig. Vegetariese etes gebruik gereeld kekerertjies, aangesien dit ’n goeie bron van proteïen en koolhidrate is. Dit het ook die vermoë om ander geure wonderlik te absorbeer en juis daarom is die resep so ideaal.
