A cocktail we came up with to use up some passion fruit cordial. If you can't find the cordial use this recipe and make your own:Recipe #198770! If you can't find lychee juice, the liquid from a can of lychees works well too.
From Bill Granger's bills Sydney Food. This dish relies on the hot pasta to warm the other ingredients, so combine immediately after draining. This works well as a quick weeknight meal. I've made many variations, using only lemon zest and juice, coriander in place of the parsley, omitting the lime and adding Parmesan, etc. . . It's easy and versatile.
From Marcus Wareing's One Perfect Ingredient. I halved the recipe and used John Dory fillets (since Haddock is not available here) with great success! This made a fantastic, super quick weeknight meal for us.
A simple soup that can be ready in under 15 minutes: from The Sydney Morning Herald, Tuesday April 15, 2008. Use the dumplings of your choice. I always keep some pork and coriander dumplings in the freezer, and those work fine.
Congee is a type of rice porridge eaten in many Asian countries. This recipe is Chinese. It's easiest made in a rice cooker, but a pot will do as well. On a personal note: congee is also a popular late night eat here in Sydney's Chinatown. From: wedbee.blogspot.com.
A basic Nepalese soup. Good for treating colds. Recipe from The Spice House. Edited to add: This is meant to be a medicinal soup. You wouldn't serve your family a cup of TheraFlu or Lemsip for dinner would you? ;)
