Chipotle and Beer Short Ribs

Tender, sticky, smoky, spicy, sweet & sour, comforting, finger licking, serviette destroying and so delicious. All those words aptly describe and sum up these totally moreish Chipotle and Beer Short Ribs. The short ribs tick all the boxes when it comes to comfort food. And with the great big South African barbecue weekend for Heritage Day just around the corner, they certainly all the  barbecue food boxes. Make sure you get the best quality short ribs (I got mine from the…

Roasted Butternut with Miso and Garlic

This recipe for Roasted Butternut with Miso and Garlic is based on a recipe from Sylvia Fountain that she published on her fabulous Feasting at Home blog. I originally saw the recipe on Pinterest and had “filed” it in my seemingly neverending bookmarked list of recipes to try. I have tried some of her recipes before, like this Best Peri Peri Chicken Ever and I think is one of the most delicious chicken recipes I have published to date. The Roasted Butternut…

Roasted Aubergine Tortilla

These Roasted Aubergine Tortillas is another one of those little work for maximum flavour dishes I just love. Bonus is that there are a whole lot of my favourites in this dish making it a superb “vegetarian dude food” meal in my book. Not only is it my favourite way of cooking aubergine (drizzled with olive oil and za’atar and then roasted) but also has a good dollop of homemade hummus (which I could quite happily live on) and a…

Za'atar Rolls

It feels like autumn has arrived. The days are still warm but it feels like there is a slight chill in the air and the mornings are definitely just that bit darker for longer. This means we are heading to meals consisting of nourishing broths and soups. And I really do think these Za’atar Rolls are a must to bake to mop up all those comforting soups. But while we wait for the cold to properly arrive, these soft rolls…

Chocolate Dukkah

My new favourite thing has to be Chocolate Dukkah. Made with cacao nibs, this is a sweet, chocolate version of the aromatic savoury spice mix, dukkah that is one of my favourite accompaniments to jazz up salads, roast veggies and makes a fab dipping sauce with some olive oil. Chocolate dukkah is a sublime mix of slightly bitter cacao nibs, pistachios, hazelnuts, macadamias and cinnamon, and it makes a delicious dessert topping. I wish it was my idea but originally saw the…

Miso Roasted Aubergine

I was introduced to the term flexitarian the other day and I though to myself I that I have probably become one without realising it. I seem to be mostly vegetarian these days, only eating meat on the odd occasion and do not miss it if I do not have it. Through this process aubergines (egg plant) have pretty much become a staple in my diet and this Miso Roasted Aubergine is a fantastic way to eat the vegetable. Roasting…
