    A simple, quick to make, low-fat and delicious anytime mushroom lovers' snack that I have adapted from a recipe I found in the November 2005 issue of the Australian magazine 'Table: easy family food for every day of the week'. I am posting it for the 2005 Zaar World Tour.

    Recipe #140898

    I’ve posted this recipe as an accompaniment to my Recipe #120175 which uses Preserved Lemons. I usually buy preserved lemons at a delicatessen, but following a query during the 2005 Zaar World Tour, I decided to post this recipe for preparing them. It is from a Murdoch books’ publication: ‘Mediterranean kitchen’, and I am posting it as a recipe for any regional recipe which calls for the use of preserved lemons. In particular, preserved lemons are a specialty of Morocco. “They are traditionally served with dishes such a grilled (broiled) meats or used to flavour couscous, tagines, stuffings and casseroles They can lend an intense citrus tang to a surprising variety of savoury dishes, such as prawn (shrimp) skewers, risotto, pasta and vinaigrettes. Only the rind is used in cooking. Discard the flesh and bitter pith, rinse and finely slice or chop the rind before adding it to the dish. Preserved lemons can be stored for up to six months in a cool, dark place.” This is a recipe where to specify the preparation time is somewhat difficult. I have simply listed the initial preparation time! After this preparation, the preserved lemons won't actually be ready for use for about 6 weeks! So if you need them immediately, buy them at a delicatessen. But since they are SO easy to make, you may well want to make some for future use!

    Recipe #140971

    A simple Middle Eastern salad which provides a refreshing complement to Middle Eastern dishes or which can be served as one of a range of dishes in a mezze spread; or be used with falafel and hummus in pita bread.

    Recipe #141375

    Middle Eastern Lemonade is something I've often drunk - and loved - in Middle Eastern restaurants, but this is the first recipe for it I've come across. The lemonade I've been served in Middle Eastern restaurants - and this recipe - are NOT at all sweet, which is actually exactly how I like it (!) so I've left the recipe as I found it in Christine Osborne's 'Middle Eastern Food and Drink', but where the recipe lists among the ingredients "sugar syrup to taste", I'm adding the alternative "or sugar to taste"! I'm posting this for the 2005 Zaar World Tour. For orange blossom water, look in Indian, Greek or Lebanese grocery stores. I haven't made this recipe yet, but I'd be inclined to make it with a mix of limes and lemons. I'm posting it for the 2005 Zaar World Tour.

    Recipe #141382

    A wonderfully refreshing drink popular throughout the Middle East. This particular version of it is from Iran, and is from the Bay Books' publication: 'The Best of Lebanese and Middle Eastern Cooking'. It is impossible to provide "accurate" freezing times for this recipe, as it's really up to you - and also of course to the efficiency of your fridge - just how many times you repeat step 4. When I've made this, I've repeated this step three times, so that's what I've calculated into the "cooking time". For this recipe "cooking time" = freezing time. This is, therefore, obviously a prepare-ahead drink/dessert, and one which is ideally made when you are in the kitchen preparing other dishes. I'm posting it for the 2005 Zaar World Tour. Orange-blossom water can be purchased from Middle Eastern grocery stores. I'd recommend making this Sharbat with fresh oranges and lemons, and with natural spring water or filtered water. And to use more or less sugar, to satisfy your taste preferences.

    Recipe #141384

    A potato salad version of a popular potato dish, one I've updated from a 1970s recipe from 'The Midweek Cookbook: 200 Ways with Potatoes'. I've posted this because I want to remember to try it.

    Recipe #142117

    An easy to prepare dish which can be served at room temperature as part of an antipasto-style spread or warm as an accompaniment to meat or fish. Adapted from 'mediterranean kitchens' by Murdoch Books, for the 2005 Zaar World Tour.

    Recipe #136649

    This is Bianca Stravato's low calorie, low-fat family recipe for what non-Italians call 'stuffed mushrooms'. Bianca grew up on a farm in Calabria, and came to Australia when her family migrated here in 1964. As she says "We cook the same here that we did in Italy. We keep our traditions. It was harder in the early days because there weren't many Italian delis or shops". How different things are now as I post this recipe for the 2005 Zaar World Tour: Italian recipes have now been thoroughly integrated into C21st Australian cuisine. I found this recipe in the Leggo's Golden Anniversary Cookbook.

    Recipe #136652

    A French-Canadian entree recipe for salmon fillet seared over a high heat and served with a maple mustard seed sauce. I found this recipe on a French-Canadian food website, and have adapted it for posting for the 2005 Zaar World Tour. No serving sizes or preparation or cooking times were provided, so I have provided guesstimates. If you are reviewing this recipe, it would be helpful if you comment on these if you find the times to be different from my guesstimates. Thank you! This recipe was recommended on the website as being a particularly suitable dish to serve during Fall and Spring.

    Recipe #137506

    A Japanese-style salad which can be served as a side dish with any grilled or BBQd meat dish. I found this recipe in the October 2005 issue of the Australian magazine 'Super Food Ideas', and I have posted it for the 2005 Zaar World Tour. The "cooking times" below do not include the 3 hours refrigeration time.

    Recipe #137539

    A flavoursome Beanshoot, Avocado and Baby Spinach Salad with and Asian Vinaigrette which I have adapted from one of the recipes featured today on Huey's popular TV cooking show. He suggests serving this as an entrée or for a light lunch. Huey (Iain Hewitson) is an Australian chef, who is particularly fond of Asian cuisine. I am posting this for the 2005 Zaar World Tour.

    Recipe #137676

    An elegant and tasty appetiser: who doesn't like smoked salmon? These Smoked Salmon Crostini - or small toasted rounds of bread - topped with smoked salmon can be prepared ahead of time, and assembled just before you are ready to serve them. This recipe has been adapted from one I found on a Canadian website.

    Recipe #137989

    A vegetarian pilaff made with bulgar wheat - or if you prefer rice - which makes a great accompaniment for kebabs or any BBQd or grilled meat or fish. This recipe is one I found on an International Masters '1001 recipes for pan or wok' recipe card, and have posted for the 2005 Zaar World Tour.

    Recipe #138156

    A classic Australian dish which will be found in many Australian restaurants, and which is a brilliant way to enjoy oysters. I checked out a few sources before posting this recipe, for the 2005 Zaar World Tour, but primarily Huey (Australian chef Iain Hewitson) and the Australian publication by Reader's Digest of a book jam-packed with traditional Australian recipes: 'Family Recipe Scrapbook: tried and trusted recipes for today's cooks'. The recipe I've posted here is taken primarily from the Reader's Digest publication, but I've included details of a variation (from Huey) in the notes. By the way, if you're watching your salt intake and you're concerned about the unspecified amount of rock salt, don't be: you won't be eating it! Not in this recipe! But DO buy your oysters from someone or somewhere you can trust, so that you KNOW they are fresh.

    Recipe #138313

    A vegetable dish which can be served as one of several dishes in a vegetarian Moroccan banquet or as a side dish to a meat dish, in which case it would serve many more than 6 people. This recipe for Moroccan Greens has been adapted and posted for the 2005 Zaar World Tour from a recipe which I found on Huey's website. Huey (Iain Hewitson) is an Australian chef who has written several recipe books and hosts a popular TV cooking show twice daily on weekdays. He also runs Tolarno's restaurant in Melbourne. Whenever vegetable stock is an ingredient in a recipe, as it is in this recipe, I use my Vegetable Stock Recipe #135453 because it is heaps more flavoursome than any other vegetable stock I had previously come across.

    Recipe #138461

    Another simple but scrumptious recipe from the October 2005 issue of the 'Australian Good Taste' magazine article featuring recipes using ouzo. This is a prepare ahead recipe: 5 minutes preparation, no cooking, then 2 hours chilling. The chilling time is not included in the preparation and cooking times below. The other two recipes using ouzo that I've posted from this article - for the 2005 Zaar World Tour - are Recipe #139433 and Recipe #139444.

    Recipe #139459

    A refreshing and unusual salad, ideal as part of a Mediterranean meal on a hot summer's day. I have posted this along with three other recipes using ouzo, from an article featuring ouzo, in the October 2005 issue of 'Australian Good Taste'. The other three recipes are Recipe #139433, Recipe #139444 & Recipe #139459.

    Recipe #139460

    A deliciously spiced potato/capsicum side dish to complement grilled chicken or fish, or to accompany other Mexican dishes. Posted for the 2005 Zaar World Tour, this recipe has been adapted from an International Masters '1001 Recipes for Pan or Wok' recide card. If like me, you don't like really spicy food, omit the chillies and add dried Italian or Greek herbs, and perhaps 1/2 teaspoon cumin. Realise of course that this is then no longer really a Mexican dish! Testimony surely to just how many recipes are so easily crossing national and international boundaries!

    Recipe #139465

    Quintessentially English high tea sandwiches - just how Oscar Wilde's Lady Bracknell would have had them served. Cucumber sandwiches are one of England's most traditional tea sandwiches, thinly sliced cucumber on good buttered bread. The crusts are always removed. I found this recipe on an English website and have posted it for the 2005 Zaar World Tour. The ingredients and directions have made concessions to what is now available - such as seedless cucumbers. A delicious really low fat sandwich!

    Recipe #139691

    Cucumber Sandwiches and Egg and Cress Sandwiches: traditional English afternoon tea fare at its absolute best! The mayonnaise in the filling means that there is no need to butter the bread. I have posted this recipe, found on an English website, for the 2005 Zaar World Tour. As a child, I absolutely loved these. Posting this really low fat recipe for the tour has reminded me of these delicious sandwich, and inspired me to make them again soon!
