Harvest bowls are the new trendy thing in healthy eating and considering my family’s green-leaning, are right up my alley. The best part is they are so simple. You choose a bunch of your favourite crunchy salad and veg, add a grain, some delicious protein, toss them all into a bowl and top with a juicy dressing. Quick, easy, super tasty and healthy to boot!Read More
This is just the ultimate Sunday evening comfort food. This is sticky barbecue sauce taken to new heights. The spiciness of the sriracha pairs so well with the smoked paprika and the beautiful flavour of citrus from the oranges. Serve with crunchy baked potatoes, a fragrant lemon yoghurt dressing and some crunchy shaved celery for freshness. If you can, cook this outside, on the fire, it just adds that extra depth of smokey flavour and is just a happy place to be!Read More
Mieliebrood is one of those good old South African staples usually served as a side at the braai. Personally, I like it plain, hot out of the oven slathered in good quality butter. I like to cook mine in a cast-iron skillet, but the recipe also works perfectly well in a traditional loaf tin.
There’s nothing fancy about this recipe and that is why I love it so much. It’s the kind of thing that you can decide last minute that you’re craving and, provided you have the few basic ingredients in your cupboard, can whip up and pop into the oven in 10 minutes. Then all you have to do is get your butter ready and wait for this perfect, fluffy, sweet loaf to come out of the oven!Read More
This the PERFECT summer picnic or lunch-outside-on-the-stoep (veranda) tart. Sweet red onion marmalade and roasted peppers, salty goat's cheese, soft filling, crunchy pastry - all complemented perfectly by a sunny day under the trees with a cold glass of wine and a fresh side salad.Read More
These fresh, light herby fritters are one of my go-to foods for a quick, tasty meal. The thing I absolutely love about this recipe is that it is so versatile. You can have these for breakfast, lunch, brunch, dinner or even a midnight snack! Leave out the cheese for a healthier version (but be warned: the cheese makes them SO tasty!) Serve on its own as a lovely, light meal or top with a poached egg, some spicy chicken breasts or ostrich kebabs fresh off the braai!Read More
