RICE PILAF WITH LAMB SAUSAGES

Rice pilaf with lamb sausages is a simple family meal with subtle flavours. The toasted nuts and seeds add a really nice crunch to the rice pilaf, and the dried fruit provides a hint of sweetness. Adding the fruit to the rice while it cooks makes it nice and juicy rather than chewy. Eat the remaining half orange for dessert, […]

CHINESE CUMIN LAMB STIR FRY

This is my take on Chinese cumin lamb stir fry, made a little more mainstream (less spicy, more family-friendly!) and with a few extra veggies. A really easy meal! Quinoa is a great, nutritious alternative to rice and you can use whichever veggies you have on hand. I thought a recipe with Chinese origins was fitting this week, given it’s […]

SPICED LAMB WITH SUNDRIED TOMATO HUMMUS

This spiced lamb with sundried tomato hummus is inspired by a Middle Eastern meal called Hummus B’lahmeh (hummus with lamb). My version has a few added extras, including lots more veggies. I really love this meal. It’s filling, very moreish and quite different from your traditional meat and three veg. I also find it very satisfying making my own hummus […]

Delicious served with a Greek-style salad. This recipe was inspired by a meal I had at Kuzina Cafe a few months ago. I’ve been itching for eggplants to be more readily available so […]

GREEK-STYLE NACHOS

These Greek-style nachos are a cross between nachos and a salad. They’re a fast, easy and really tasty weeknight dinner. Royce and I both love nachos, so I tend to add a few extra salad ingredients to justify having them more frequently! I’ve called this version Greek-style as they use lamb mince, feta and olives, with a yoghurt sour cream […]
