Middle Eastern style spread for Pita bread. This recipe is very tasty and easy to make. This is a very popular dish in this region. The base is usually Chickpeas and Tahini, but the flavor added to the base vary widely from one chef to the next. Tahini is a sesame paste, you can usually find it in the Mediterranean section of your grocery store.
This recipe is inspired by the many hummus recipes I have seen, but had added oil & were lacking the flavor I was seeking. It's classified as Greek for the actual Hummus part, and Indian for the coriander/cumin/cayenne combo, which is common in Indian food, and gives this dip an interesting twist. Tahini is sesame (seed) butter, and the best thing to use for the right flavor, but use peanut butter instead if you have to.
A co-worker introduced me to this salad. The combination sounds odd, but it all works! The sweetness of the melon, the tanginess of the feta, and the tartness of the lime combine to make an amazing taste sensation!
This is a recipe I came up with the other night as I had a pork loin to use up. I didn’t know what I wanted to do with it so I just used a bunch of stuff I already had in my fridge and cupboard and it turned out really well. I served ours over egg and vegetable fried rice but it would be just as nice served over steamed rice as well. Prep time does not include marinating time.
This is so beautiful! Peeling the potatoes is optional...your preference. Add some french bread and a salad and you have a meal! It can also be prepared and frozen for future use! Freeze in airtight container, then thaw in refrigerator for 24 hours. Place in a saucepan and cook over low heat until heated thoroughly....stir often! Adapted from Southern Living.
This is the only pasta salad my husband will eat. The dressing though similar to other BLT salads on the site has one major difference and it really adds a wonderful zip to the salad. When ever I serve this salad several people go home with the recipe.
A healthier and lower calorie alternative to potato chips and the fancy veggie chips available because these are not fried! These beet chips make a wonderful (and pretty!) snack. Good for packing in a lunch, serving at parties or just nibbling on. These are chips you can feel GOOD about eating. :)
I found this recipe in an Australian supermarket magazine Recipes+. I very rarely cook with tinned soup, but this is good. I went to buy the soup and came away with the low salt one-a good choice as it turns out. The tandoori paste has enough salt in it for the dish.
Note that Aus tablespoons are 4 teaspoons
This recipe was given to me by mother-in-law 28 years ago and she's been using it for over 40 years, she got it out of the newspaper where someone had written in and requested the recipe when they had it at a Sydney restaurant. It keeps well in the fridge and the flavour will increase with time. Have not included chilling time.
Handy hint - when we have family gatherings we double the mix but don't put in the tabasco sauce and then split the mix between 3 jars and in the first jar put 3/4 teaspoon, the second jar 1 1/4 teaspoon and the third 2 teaspoons so you have a mild version, a hot and super hot and if there is someone who would like it hotter still give them a small bowl and a bottle of tabasco and they can add more to their serve.
A delicious and easy pasta dish that you can substitute chicken for the shrimp if you are not a fan. You can also use a different shape of pasta, but linguine is nice. The optional ingredients are really good but you can omit if you can't stand a little heat. If I use all those ingredients, I find it a little hot, so I add about 1/2 cup half and half cream. I tried to keep it healthy here though! Enjoy!
This is a yummy, healthy salad recipe, which will have you come back for more. :)
Well at least, if you like earthy beet flavour, combined with sweet apple and salty feat cheese. I hope youll enjoy!
The original version of this dish comes from German chef Tim Mälzer.
