Basic caramelised onions

Basic caramelised onions

The first few times I made these onions I used dried thyme. Soon after I started adding cumin seeds and now, I alternate between the two flavours, depending on what I am planning to serve with the onions. I use thyme if I want a more delicate flavour, and cumin when I serve it with meat.

Sundried tomato & basil pesto

Sundried tomato & basil pesto

This tomato pesto is so versatile. Spread it on sandwiches (braaibroodjies) or toast, dollop on scrambled eggs for a delicious breakfast and the options for sides, salads and suppers are plenty. Spread pesto on chicken breast fillets or under the skin of chicken thighs and roast in the oven. Toss the pesto through baby potatoes in the skin or chickpeas, add some crumbled feta and serve with rocket and fresh basil as a side dish.
