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.

Hot chocolate

Hot chocolate

Homemade hot chocolate is so easy to make and a healthier alternative to shop-bought powders or mixes. If you prepare your own, you can control what goes into each mug of deliciousness and choose better quality chocolate that is lower in sugar and other additives. Remember, dark chocolate gives a better, richer flavour than milk chocolate. If preferred, you can stir in a little honey for a sweeter taste.

Lemon & pea risotto with chicken

Lemon & pea risotto with chicken

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.

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.
