DILL SALMON LOAF with Piquant Yoghurt Sauce

With Christmas on the horizon I’m starting to look for recipes that will work on the big day. I think this salmon loaf would make a great starter.  You could make it the day before and serve it cold with the yoghurt sauce and a light salad.



Today is the 1st day of Spring here in Melbourne.  You could argue that it’s too late in the year to post a soup recipe, but for soup lovers like me, it’s never too late!!!


This casserole base makes two portions and is a great way to pre-prepare a couple of nights dinners.  You can make the base, divide in half and then freeze it.  It’s easy enough then to defrost it and add the extra ingredients on the night you want to use it.


Vegetarian recipes weren’t something Mum would have been looking for on the pages of the Herald Sun.  Growing up I can’t remember anyone among our family or friends who didn’t eat meat, so cooking vegetable only dishes just wasn’t necessary.  This recipe is on a page Mum kept from the paper that had pork, lamb, sausage and fish casseroles on it, so the recipes were around, they just weren’t something Mum made.


This is a nice meaty pasta bake with carrot, celery and mushrooms cunningly hidden to fool those picky eaters.  I like that you can make it and freeze it as it’s always great to have something in the freezer for those busy or lazy nights when you just don’t have time or feel like cooking.
