With a name like that how could I not try it? I got this from a cookbook called Australia Wide Cookbook by Valwyn McMonigal I learned that bananas were introduced to NSW and yields apx 152,000 tons a year! They cover the bunches with blue plastic bags to protect the bananas from sunburn. Enjoy!
Quick, healthy, easy, no cook Bush meal for a hot Aussie summer day with a boozer! Pepperberries a mild, fruity pepper flavour will bleed a soft pink colour into marinades or pickle solutions, pale sauces and yoghurt.
A rambling mint bush is found across south eastern Australia in moist forests and around waterways. This subtle Australian native herb with the taste and aroma of spearmint. So yes you can use mint from your backyard. I added chia seeds to mine for healthy having lots of fiber, Manganese, Phosphorus and omega-3 fatty acids.
Rice flour gives this a nice crunch. Backhousia citriodora (common names lemon myrtle, lemon scented myrtle, lemon scented ironwood) is a flowering plant in the family Myrtaceae. From subtropical rainforests of central and south-eastern Queensland, Australia, with a natural distribution from Mackay to Brisbane. Other common names are sweet verbena tree, sweet verbena myrtle, lemon scented verbena, and lemon scented backhousia.
taken from here http://conversationalmandarin.com/article/delicious-seafood-recipes.html so i could save it all into the one spot.
edit. have now tested and is very yummy. Could use a touch of chili or paprika to add some spice, will try that next time.
You can make this cake with any kind of nuts, but I liked it best with pecans. Instead of gluten free flour you can also use spelt or whole wheat flour. I've tried it with all kinds of gluten free flour, and they all work well. You can also use almond meal so you get a no grain cake.
Sometimes you just want a simple, good sandwich that doesn't involve faux deli slices. I keep a tin of chickpeas on hand for just such occassions, and never make it exactly the same way twice...but this is generally a combo of ingredients and flavours I enjoy. I also like to add in a bit of flax oil, just to get my omegas in. Served on some toasted bread, this is a quick and satisfying lunch.
I got this from an Australian Women's Weekly "after work healthy" cookbook my swap buddy I'mPat sent me. It sounded like a sauce I get at our local German restaurant, and I was right - it was WONDERFUL! And better for me since the chicken isn't breaded and fried. Hope you enjoy it!
This recipe was adapted from ExtraVeganZa, which is a book I am thoroughly loving! For starters I halved the recipe - so you could easily double up again to get about enough for 6-7. There are a few things I did not halve including the curry powder and lime juice, just something to be aware of if you do double it, use those seasonings to taste. If you're using a hotter curry powder like Madras, you may want to add less. I added spinach and used regular onions, the original recipe called for green onions. This made 4 moderate servings, just right if you're serving with rice and/or roti. This didn't take long to make, and tasted even better the next day.
There is a lot of information out there about Chia seeds (Salvia) and what a nutritional powerhouse they are. I'm trying to find new ways to incorporate them into my diet, aside from sprinkling them on breakfast cereal. Recently my health food store handed out a few recipes including chia seeds, which is where this one stems from. I'm no expert but I do know they are high in omega-3, fibre, calcium and protein. I know of vegans using chia seeds soaked in water in place of eggs (or in place of "flax" eggs). I'm planning to post a recipe for chia egg replacer shortly. This page has lots of great information about these seeds - http://www.living-foods.com/articles/chia.html. I halved the original recipe, since these seeds are expensive I didn't want to risk it. If you don't happen to have coconut oil (aka coconut butter), I think it would be fine to leave it out because there is enough oil in the tahini and almond butter to hold things together. These make a fantastic snack.
Haven't made this, but it sounds good! The recipe calls for 6 fresh corn cobs, so I looked up the conversion charts, which suggests that 1 medium corn cob yields about 3/4 cup of corn. That would be 4.5 cups of frozen or canned corn, which sounds like rather a lot, to 200 gr of potatoes, which is about one large potato. Although the corn is pureed, which would make a difference. So I'm going to suggest 3 cups corn, but if you feel that this is too much, or too little, adjust accordingly. And let us know! :D
Recipe comes from "Gourmet Stews And Mash".
From Veg Times, this recipe calls for Napa cabbage (aka Chinese cabbage). Nice change from lettuce, and for those who don't care for the usual coleslaw, this one has a distinct Asian flavour with the sesame oil, ginger and soy. Lots of room to add more veggies as you wish! UPDATE: I was able to make this in advance for a party by mixing up the dressing a few days in advance and storing in a tightly sealed jar in the fridge. The night before, I cut up all the veg, including the cilantro and put it all in a plastic bag. A few hours before we were due to eat, I tossed it all together. It worked out really nicely. I also used regular cabbage and it was still great. If you like dressing I suggest doubling that part, you can always keep extra for another meal if you don't use it all.
I was looking for a fruit "something" that would be finger food friendly for a shower this weekend. Wanted something a little showy for the buffet table, and was surprised that I couldn't find anything on zaar involving fruit and a skewer. :) Shock horror! I ended up on www.justjennrecipies.com and found this idea. It's nothing you couldn't figure out on your own, pretty basic, but it gave me an idea to work with. You could serve with one of the many fruit dip recipes here on the zaar - or as is, which is what I'm planning to do. I'll post some pics once it's done! Update: I had to use a baby watermelon, still worked out fine. I did find the step of making small X marks to poke the skewers through was unnecessary - plus you need to get the right angle when you poke the skewer in (otherwise they might be flopping down too far from the weight of the fruit, so I wouldn't bother with that step next time.
