    A recipe which Huey (Aussie chef Iain Hewitson) classifies as GOOD OLD AUSSIE TUCKER, which means the recipe's origins are Anglo-Saxon (i.e. pre-European culinary influences). In posting this recipe, I have "converted" Huey's "a generous slurp of Worcestershire sauce" to 2-3 tablespoons of worcestershire sauce. Be guided by your taste preferences here.

    Recipe #349482

    Seafood Chicken? When I came across this recipe in 'The Terrace Times Minimum Effort Maximum Effect Cook Book: Melbourne edition' (first published in 1979 and the tenth in a series), I just had to check it out! First I read "Seafood Chicken is hardly a recipe but a useful idea when the remains of a roast chicken are inadequate for a second meal. They can be extended and revitalised with canned tuna." "Revitalised": that's a quaint concept! Amazing just how dated the descriptions in older recipe books can sound. But as a useful idea rather than a recipe, this could be just as "useful" in 2009! And that's the spirit in which I'm posting it. Naturally to be acceptable for a Zaar posting, I've had to specify some ingredient amounts but basically I'm offering this as a "how to use leftovers" recipe or - if not "recipe" - then idea! In responding to this "idea", you can, of course, also add to the serving platter sliced boiled eggs, olives (I'd recommend pitted kalamata olives) and artichoke hearts etc..

    Recipe #349470

    Adapted substantially from a recipe I found on Huey's website. A great side-dish to roasts, grilled or BBQd meats. Yellow onions (for Americans) or brown onions (for Australians) are probably the most suitable and most flavoursome for this recipe. Be careful not to overcook the onions in step one; the outer rings need to be firm enough to serve as a case for the stuffing. If you end up with too much stuffing - and this will very much depend on the size of your onions! - use the extra stuffing to stuff a tomato.

    Recipe #349057

    Huey's version of Sloppy Joes, from the Snack Attack section of his website. As always, he has his own take on a recipe and as always he adds lots of heat! Before posting this recipe, I read several hundreds of Zaar recipes for Sloppy Joes and concluded that in 99.9% of cases they are made from ground beef. But that was just my impression so I'll happily be corrected if I've misunderstood the concept. :) Huey's recipe was sufficiently different from all those I read, so I decided to post it. Increase or decrease the heat to meet your taste preferences. Some conversions: 410g = 13oz; 440g = 14oz. And another conversion I had to make because Huey - in typical fashion - was vague in his specification of ingredients: I have converted his "1 good splash soy sauce" into "1-2 tablespoons of soy sauce". From watching his TV cooking shows, I know that by a "splash" he means a fairly liberal splash! Please use your discretion and taste preferences to guide you here! 26 January 2009 UPDATE: Thank you to the two reviewers whose reviews have enabled me to make this update. First, you may like to incorporate some of justcallmetoni's additions. I know if I were making this - minus the heat - I'd be adding onion and garlic. Secondly, appleydapply's finding that there was too much liquid suggests that you need to be cautious of how much liquid you include. As you undoubtedly know, canned tomatoes vary enormously in how much liquid they contain. Aldi's Italian tomatoes contain very little liquid compared with other brands. So I'd suggest pouring off all the liquid or most of it and, as she suggested, reducing or eliminated the amount of stock used. I've retained the original amount but stated that its addition is optional.

    Recipe #349055

    This low GI recipe has been adapted from a recipe in Michelle Trute's 'cooking with conscience book 2' which focuses on low-fat, low GI, easily prepared food. In making this, I processed the garlic and zucchini and used a small amount of oil to panfry the patties in a non-stick pan, and added a dollop of tzaziki on top of the burgers. Zaar would not allow me to include tzatziki as an ingredient, so I've included Greek yoghurt which is what I'd use if I had no tzatziki on hand. If you haven't tried Greek yoghurt before, it's much creamier than other yoghurts. And if you want a good recipe for tzatziki, I recommend Ravenseyes’ Recipe #306901 or Recipe #157176. 160 grams of ground chicken = just over 5 ounces of ground chicken.

    Recipe #349024

    From the Australian Family Circle's 'Popular Potato Recipes'. If you're looking for a recipe for tzatziki, it's hard to beat Ravenseyes' Recipe #306901 or Recipe #157176.

    Recipe #349013

    A simple, recession-savvy pate. The economists and politicians may be talking HARD TIMES and economic belts may be tightening but we still need to live, drink and be merry with family and friends - 2009-style.

    Recipe #349011

    This easy-to-make recipe for Char Siu Pork Tortillas is from Australian magazine 'New Idea" chef Barbara Northwood. I found it online. The preparation and cooking times below do not include the time needed for marinading the pork for two hours or overnight.

    Recipe #349002

    A tasty chicken dish with easy-to-prepare salad greens, cherry tomatoes and red capsicums (or red bell peppers). Rocket, mesculun or baby spinach leaves are ideal greens. I always opt for baby spinach leaves. This recipe is from The Australian Women's Weekly's 'fresh food fast: delicious no-fuss healthy recipes'.

    Recipe #348990

    You may miss the oil, you may miss the cheese, but this recipe is not only very simple to make but is very healthy and flavoursome, and costs only $A2.65 per serve. It has been adapted from a recipe in the January 2009 issue of the 'Australian Healthy Food' magazine. If you find this recipe just too frustratingly fat-free, add some parmesan just before serving!

    Recipe #348987

    These fritters could be served as appetizers, as a side dish or as one of several vegetarian dishes. It's the closest recipe I've found for some delicious zucchini fritters I ate and loved some years ago, though I'm pretty sure that they didn't have sumac in them, and sumac adds a lot of flavour. When I inquired after the recipe at the time, the Greek woman who'd made them she named the key ingredients but was very dismissive of them. I felt as if to her it was if I'd asked how to make something as simple as say a basic bread and butter sandwich with a slice of cheese in it! This recipe is from the Australian Women's Weekly's 'fresh food fast: delicious no fuss healthy recipes'. Australian brown onions are what Americans call yellow onions. Sumac, if you've not used it is defined (in the same recipe book) as "a purple-red astringent spice ground from berries that grow on shrubs that flourish wild around the Mediterranean; has a tart, lemony flavour. Found in Middle-Eastern food stores. Substitute: 1/8 teaspoon five-spice plus 1/2 teaspoon lemon pepper plus 1/8 teaspoon all spice equals 3/4 teaspoon sumac". I've found that I can purchase it readily from more upmarket supermarkets and European delicatessens.

    Recipe #348982

    Another tasty and really easy to prepare appetiser from The Australian Women's Weekly's 'TAPAS: antipasto mezze'. I've also posted Recipe #344630, Recipe #344049 and Recipe #343935 from this fabulous little cookbook. Increase or decrease the heat to suit your taste preferences. I cannot eat these: they're way too hot for me! But I've made them for friends who've loved them.

    Recipe #348183

    A delicious and extremely quick-to-make recipe which I was delighted to find in the October-November 2008 issue of 'dish'. As I don't like hot and spicy flavours, I made these with a mild paprika. Those who do like foods hot and spicy might want to add cayenne pepper. Please, do adjust the spices to meet your taste preferences. As almonds boost energy levels particularly at those times such as early afternoon when - given the choice - many of us may choose to have a siesta, I intend to have these on hand in a container at all times at work as a quick energy-boosting snack. I've found that even half a dozen almonds can provide the boost needed at such times, and these will offer a more flavoursome alternative to plain almonds.

    Recipe #347911

    This yummy recipe is from the Australian Women's Weekly's 'fresh food fast: delicious no-fuss healthy recipes'. When making patties, I often use well-greased egg rings. I have some that can be used in non-stick pans and place the mixture directly into these, then remove them when flipping the patties - with the help of two spatulas - to cook the reverse side.

    Recipe #347602

    From the Australian Women's Weekly's 'Smart Mince'.

    Recipe #347013

    Asian Pork Mini Meatloaves made in a muffin pan and served with noodle salad. Adapted from a recipe by Liz Macri in the February 2008 issue of the Australian magazine 'Super Food Ideas'. Conversions: 500g = 16oz. so 600g is about 31/2 oz over the pound weight. 225g = approximately 71/2 oz.; 250g = 8oz..

    Recipe #346579

    This recipe - by Rodney Dunn - is from the March 2001 issue of the 'Australian Good Taste' magazine. I have made these patties - served as a first course - with the chillis for guests who like hot and spicy food (and they've loved them) and for myself minus the chillis! Some useful conversions: 350g = a tad more than 11oz.; 50g = approximately 13/4oz.

    Recipe #346429

    Enjoy Asian flavours but wanting a low cost meal? Then this recipe - which uses slow-cooking to get lots of flavour from some of the cheaper cuts of beef - may be just what you're looking for. Michelle Southan's recipe for Asian Beef and Vegetable Casserole is from the August 2007 issue of the 'Australian Good Taste' magazine. Michelle suggests that you "put away your wok and get ready for aromatic slow-cooked beef, Asian style". Some conversions which may be useful in making this recipe: 90g = 3oz; 300g = approx. 91/2oz; 1.5 kg = 3lbs; 4cm = 11/2"; 125ml = 4 fluid ounces; 500ml = 16 fluid ounces.

    Recipe #346250

    A great appetiser which can be made a day ahead of when you want to serve them, wrapped in foil and reheated when you're ready to serve them. Adapted from a recipe in the Australian magazine 'New Idea'. If you are serving these at a family gathering, most children would probably enjoy these minus the sour cream and smoked salmon!

    Recipe #346151

    An easy everyday recipe, ideal for a midweek meal, adapted from a recent issue of the Australian 'New Idea'. Frittata can be made up to two days ahead, and kept covered in the refrigerator. Canned salmon can be used in place of the smoked salmon. Use leftover portions in packed take-to-work or take-to-school lunches. This is also an ideal recipe for taking on picnics and to potlucks.
