Apple Couscous & Goat Cheese Cucumber Rolls

This recipe came with the Hello Fresh Box I tried a couple of months ago. The vegetable box didn’t do it for me, but the recipe was a keeper, after I tweaked it a bit. You know I can’t leave things alone. It’s a lovely light, fresh, sweet and vegetarian spring dish with a slight kick. Funky cucumber rolls filled with a honey-sweetened goat geese and walnuts served alongside a…

    Shakshuka

    I adore these simple one-pan dishes. Especially those where you throw a few eggs into the equation and poach them in whatever it is you’re making. In that light, me sharing this classic Middle Eastern dish called Shashuka probably doesn’t come as a big surprise to some of you. And really, if this is the first you’ve heard of it let me tell you that you’ve been missing out… we…

      Sweet Chili Brussels Sprouts

      Always looking out for new ways to spice up those boring Brussels Sprouts. Don’t get me wrong; I love those green little suckers, but admit that they can be boring! This was one of my love’s ideas, which was amazing in and of itself seeing as he cannot cook. But, in short, he loves Brussels sprouts and sweet chili sauce so he tossed up the idea for this recipe and,…

        Sesame Roasted Broccoli

        You won’t find many broccoli recipes on my site because, quite frankly, I just don’t like it. There. I’ve said it. Neither does my son, but that’s probably my fault. Sure, I’m okay with broccoli deeply hidden in a casserole, drowned in an almost indecent amount of cheese sauce, and hardly recognisable as a vegetable much less as broccoli, but broccoli as is… nope. Not my thing. When a friend…

          South Indian Potato Curry

          You can never have too many potato recipes. There’s just no such thing. No, really, there isn’t! And this one deserves a spot in your recipe box. Like all other Madhur Jaffrey recipes, this southern Indian potato curry is a clear example of the spirit of India shining through with simplicity. It takes plain ole and humble potatoes, a handful of spices and magically transforms them into an exotic side…

            Apple, Radish & Carrot Salad

            It looks as though autumn is setting in here, so I figured I’d give you an amazing salad for these last few days of summer. It’s crunchy, fresh, mildly sweet and really tasty. The finely sliced vegetables are lightly drizzled with an Asian-style dressing that gives it the perfect finishing touch. I’ve always served salads as a side dish, but this is my new favourite appetizer; full of flavour and…
