This looks very luscious, a little bit of work, but what a result.
I decided that I could group these two beef and bean dishes together. They are a little different, but as they both use minced beef and beans I felt they went together. So take your pick….. the Beef and Beans has bacon, chutney and butter beans, the Chilli Beef ‘N’ Beans is spicier and has chilli, red kidney beans and the surprise ingredient of vegemite.
Yes, Cake and Butter, not bread and butter. I’m assuming that this would be a sweeter dish than the traditional version as there’d be a more sugar in the cake than in bread. Although I haven’t made it, I think it would work – could be good with orange cake or other flavours too.
Not everyone likes pumpkin, but it’s actually a fairly versatile vegetable. Growing up most of our mothers only served it boiled or roasted. I now like it mashed or in curries and casseroles too. Haven’t tried this version, but I’m going to as I think the creamy cheezee sauce sounds great.
Most soups require a whole lot of vegetable peeling and chopping, but with the exception of chopping up an onion, there’s nothing else to prepare for this Green Pea Soup. Add stock to the fried onion, garlic, a dash of cumin, throw in frozen peas, puree and you’re done…..couldn’t be easier.
I think that cauliflower is a very versatile vegetable. Traditionally we only had it boiled or topped with a cheesy white sauce, but these days I use it in lots of different ways. Unlike broccoli it’s fairly firm and as long as you don’t cook it for too long it holds up well roasted, in curries, stir fries and stews. As we mainly eat low carb, my favourite use is as a substitute for potato on top of shepherds pie. In this recipe it’s combined with potatoes, lamb mince and spices, certainly a change from plain old boiled cauli……
Don’t think there’s anyway you can go wrong with a combination of chocolate, raspberries, ice-cream and waffles. What more is there to say………………
This is another John West salmon lasagne recipe. This version has lots of ricotta cheese in it which makes it lovely and creamy. Although it’s more expensive to use red salmon rather than pink it’s worth it, as it gives it lots more flavour. Great served with a salad and garlic bread.
Fancy a sweet treat to go with that cup of tea or coffee while you’re working from home? Then you might enjoy this slice. Won’t take long to make or if you’re lucky the kids might make it for you. Either way I hope it makes these difficult days a bit brighter for you.
Tinned pineapple has never been a favourite in my household as it’s quite sweet, but if you like meat and fruits together you should try this lamb casserole recipe. Easy to make and great on a cold night.
