This casserole has a curry lamb base and a rolled oats, chive and flour crust. Rolling the dough into a log and cutting the log into slices makes a great looking crust. I think that takes it from just a family meal to being good enough to serve up to visitors.
No, this isn’t a recipe for just chocolate macaroons – it’s actually a chocolate dessert with macaroons on top. It’s a new one to me. It’s cooked in individual souffle dishes with a chocolate crumb base, a rich chocolate/coffee sauce and topped with coconut macaroons. Definitely one for the chocolate lovers.
The blurb that goes with this New Idea soup recipe says “A lovely soup which can be served hot in the winter months or chilled in the summer”. Personally I don’t think soup should ever be eaten cold, I like it steaming hot, but, I’m willing to accept that it might be to some people’s taste. Either way it’s an unusual way to cook cucumbers…………..
Instead of making the pastry case as described in this recipe you could make it as a regular pie or flan. You could even make it without pastry at all by just lightly greasing a pie plate and covering it with fine, dried breadcrumbs before adding the filling. Whichever way you make it the Mediterranean flavors make it a great lunch dish.
