Seems to me that when you have a dessert which has chocolate, coffee, Tia Maria, cream cheese, cream and choc-chip biscuits, the deliciousness is pretty much guaranteed……….
You can tell this is an old recipe as it gives directions to soak the chickpeas overnight. Of course you can still do that, but it’s much easier now to just buy tinned chickpeas. It makes the recipe a lot quicker and easier to make as you can cut out the first couple of steps and go straight to frying the onions, garlic and pepper.
With the price of lamb having risen so much recently, a recipe where you can use cheaper cuts, like the forequarter chops in this recipe, seems like a great idea. There’s quite a mix on flavours here lamb, apricot, curry, soy sauce, peanut butter and all topped with crusty breadstick pieces. Haven’t made it myself, but it would certainly make a hearty meal.
When I was growing up cabbage was sliced and boiled and came out quite tasteless. As a result I’m always looking for new ways to cook it, to make it more interesting. The obvious way is to add butter and while that tastes great, dietary wise it’s not such a good idea for some of us. So finding this cutting has been inspiring, there’s some great ideas on it.
