These patties are delicious on top of salad greens and drizzled with some Kewpie mayonnaise, or in a burger. I made them for the first time without measuring, so I've guessed the amounts. Feel free to adjust to taste!
This oil is very simple. Drizzle over roasting pumpkin and potatoes, or use a spoonful with butter or oil when frying mushrooms. It is also good with bacon or used in salads, soups and stews. Thyme Oil can be used soon after making it, but the flavour fully develops over a few days until it is quite strong. If you want a milder flavour, use twice as much oil or half as much herb. Keeps for around three weeks.
This savoury recipe can be served as a dip with toasted pita bread wedges or used spread for sandwiches. The beans can be mashed to a smooth texture or left a bit chunky according to personal preference.
A fragrant and rich lentil stew. You can use any combination of split lentils and whole lentils for this dish. The whole lentils should be soaked in hot water for up to an hour before starting (not included in preparation time).
Relax and unwind with these luxurious bath salts. Rose and chamomile are expensive oils, and usually sold as 3% in Jojoba oil, which is fine for this recipe. A few drops of pink food colouring can be added for visual appeal if preparing as a gift.
A delicate rose flavoured granita. I use home made vanilla sugar in this recipe. You can add more sugar if you prefer a very sweet granita. You can also add a drop or two of pink food colouring for visual effect. This granita is excellent on its own or served with fruit.
These bath salts are very refreshing. Mandarin or tangerine essential oils can be used instead of orange. Be very careful adding the cinnamon as it is an extremely powerful scent. For a milder spice, substitute allspice essential oil. A drop or two of orange food colouring can be added for visual appeal if making these for a gift.
Quince syrup is delicious over pancakes or chocolate, and is also nice by the spoonful as a remedy for sore throats. This makes a cup or less of syrup; to make more simply double or triple all ingredients, or add extra sugar.
