Chicken & Red Onion Sauce Sandwich

I have a love/hate relationship with the red onion sauce our grillrooms serve with the shoarma that’s often eaten after a night out. It’s one of the mellowest sauces ever, but also quite oily. It’s not exactly a low-fat recipe, but so chockfull of flavour and it goes with pretty much anything you can think of, and then some. That counts for something, right? Found only a small handful recipes…

    Spicy Curried Paneer

    I spotted the ‘One-Hour Cheese’ book by Claudia Lucero when I was cruising kobobooks. My favourite pastime. Bought it, and when I glanced over this curried paneer recipe, I knew it would be the recipe I’d start with. Adding curry powder to the cheese itself is so brilliant in all its simplicity! First time someone asked me if I’d ever eaten grilled paneer, I shrugged my shoulders and thought they were…

      Roasted Pepper & Feta Crostini

      These royally topped little Italian toasts rock my world. As soon as the warmer weather sets in and the pits are being fired up all around me, something inside me screams ‘crostini’. Love those darn things. There’s nothing you cannot put on a crostini and make it look and taste good. Transform them into gourmet food by adding the best cheeses combined with grilled vegetables or and fresh herbs. Or think…

        Kayotic Falafel

        I’ve never been able to make a really good falafel at home before I had my meat grinder, so I never did; I just grabbed some when I happened to be downtown on a shopping spree. This recipe should also work with a food processor but I haven’t tried it yet so you’re on your own if you do. These falafel are really firm and crunchy on the outside while soft,…

          Potato & Cheddar Buttermilk Waffles

          One of these days I’m gonna post a bunch of healthy recipes. No superfoods; I’m really allergic to even the word ’superfoods’, but something lighter, healthier and perhaps a little more nutritious should be doable. No seriously; I promise! But first I must share this recipe that one of my readers (waves at Helen) dropped in my inbox. She had me at potatoes. I was the culprit that added the cheese….

            Spring Chicken Sandwich

            Finally I get to eat chicken salad sandwiches and drink serious glasses of milk again in the back yard while reading books! My favourite pastime. Crazy as it may sound, I built this sandwich around a bottle of mango vinegar; my latest culinary addiction. It turned out every bit as spring-like, fresh and wonderful as I hoped it would be. This sandwich is so chockfull of flavour, texture and surprising…
