Pan Haggerty is a traditional home cooking British dish. It is one of those recipes where everybody's mother had a different version they make but the concept is the same. Which is making a little bit of meat go a long way by padding it out with cheaper root vegetables. I am trying to eat less meat so came up with this vegetarian version for the vegetarian food blog I run at weekendcarnivore.com . Serve with some good bread and this is a one pot meal.
I am a hummus fiend and I like coming up for new versions. I had a jar of preserved lemons in my fridge and decided to give my latest hummus recipe an extra Middle Eastern feel. I originally made this recipe for my vegetarian food blog at weekendcarnivore.com .
Jaffa cakes are a wonderful cakey sort of cookie (it is often debated if it is a cake or a cookie) that is very popular in the UK. They are made up of an orange cake base and a chocolate top. I saw this recipe in a UK cooking magazine for a giant jaffa cake drizzle loaf and knew I had to make it. I am so glad I did because this is a wonderful cake that I now get asked to make frequently.
This is my favourite hummus recipe that I have developed as of late. The green olives work well to add a slightly salty note to the hummus. The way I make hummus uses less oil so I can feel less guilty about enjoying my favourite dish. Coriander is known in the States as cilantro. I came up with this recipe for my vegetarian food blog at wwww.weekendcarnivore.com .
I came up with this recipe when I was asked to review a brand of Greek yogurt for my Weekend Carnivore (http://weekendcarnivore.com) cooking blog. I figured that I enjoy both spinach dip and potato salad. So, why not combine the two? Cooking time doesn't include the chilling time since it is up to you how long you chill it.
I saw this recipe in Marks and Spencer's 2009 Christmas leaflet. It looked really interesting and I wanted to put it somewhere for future use. Stilton is a strong cheese like a blue cheese. So, if you can't find Stilton you can probably use blue cheese. She says that it could be either a side dish or a main vegetarian dish over brown rice.
I was looking for ways to use up that part used open bottle of mango chutney that always appears to be lurking in the back of my fridge. I threw this together to see what would happen and we actually rather enjoyed it.
I really enjoy the recipes of Australian chef Bill Granger. He always comes up with dishes that somehow sound indulgent and healthy at the same time. This sounds like the kind of fusion food I have always thought I would experience if I ever got to go to Sydney. Cooking time includes chilling time for the burgers.
Who better to ask about Australian food than the Dame herself? I found this recipe on the website for a San Francisco tv station. Apparently, Dame Edna, aka Barry Humphreys, stopped in and cooked this recipe on their show. Now, keep in mind the recipe is in typical Dame Edna language so I am sure you can decide to arrange your sausage any way you wish. Enjoy possums!
I found this recipe for a healthier Anzac Day biscuit on the New Zealand Heart Foundation website. It comes from a program they have done aimed at schools. I was also drawn to it because of the lack of coconut which I was finding in a lot of Anzac Day biscuit recipe. Since I am not a fan of coconut these sound perfect for me. The recipe didn't give a yield. So, I am guessing on that.
Toad in the hole is one of those British dishes with a name that make most outsiders giggle. Really though it is just sausages baked into a batter - yummy. These are a tiny bite sized version much like pigs in a blanket.
One of my culinary discoveries since moving to the UK is the Cherry Bakewell Tart. They are just so yummy and feel very British to eat. So, when I saw this cake version in BBC Good Food magazine I simply had to add it for sometime when I am allowed to cheat on my diet and there are other people to share it so that I don't eat the whole thing myself!
