Stuffed Baked Potatoes

Stuffed Baked Potatoes – Oh my weak heart! I love, love, love Stuffed Baked Potatoes! Sometimes the stuffing can be as simple as melted butter, salt and pepper, or sometimes rather decadent. There is just something about a baked potato that I can’t explain.  Even if I make gnocchi, I prefer baking the potatoes and […]

Veggie Burgers, kind of a contradiction, because we always associate burgers with beef, pork or lamb. These Veggie Burgers could stand tall next to any of the above meaty burgers. It is packed with crunch, flavor and not only is a delicious, but it is much cheaper than meat. You can chop and change the […]

My roasted butternut salad is a hit. Every time I make it, people want to know the secret. My roasted butternut salad has no secret, really.

Two Minute Noodle Salad

This Two Minute Noodle Salad I can eat every single day. So many Two Minute Noodle recipes online, but most of them are loaded with expensive ingredients which no longer makes it a rand stretcher.

Pasta Puttanesca

Pasta Puttanesca literally translated as “spaghetti in the style of a prostitute” is most probably the quickest pasta you will ever make. (Well, maybe my Pesto Pasta is quicker) It is a tangy, somewhat salty Italian pasta dish, dated back to the mid-20th century. I am not sure how this recipe is linked to prostitution, […]

Mushrooms and toasted Brioche

Mushrooms and toasted brioche sounds awfully pretentious doesn’t it? Well, take mushrooms on toast and you can literally wake me in the middle of the night with it. Make that toast, toasted, buttery brioche and I have no resistance. Mushrooms and toasted brioche just happened as an quick fix after an event from which I […]

Cauliflower Bake with Red Onion Marmalade

Posted on January 28, 2016 by in vegetables, vegetarian

Cauliflower

Cauliflower has for may years been banned to side dish status on the Sunday lunch table. Smothered in thick, cheesy white sauce and topped with more cheese. Basically a carb-bomb. Cauliflower then suddenly took center stage when Tim Noakes and his Banting Diet entered the arena. I remember buying anything between 5 and 10 cauliflowers […]
