Boerewors Nachos

This Boerewors Nachos is one of the recipes featured in the past weekend’s Sunday Times Food Weekly. The brief was to create some delicious snacks to give the rugby fans something to cheer about. Even if the game might not…

Gourmet Stuffed Braai Loaf

All the banters and paleos and gluten frees and carb fiends should look away because this Gourmet Stuff Braai Loaf is fantastic! Freshly baked home made bread stuffed with caramelised onions, roasted tomatoes, some grilled peppers and two cheeses. A…

Fried Risotto Balls

Another frying recipe but I realised during the week that I never shared this particular recipe on the blog after they appeared in the Sunday Times Cheese Issue and these Fried Risotto Balls are too good not to share. Spring has definitely…

Fried Cauliflower with a Whipped Hummus Dip

This Fried Cauliflower with Whipped Hummus Dip is adapted from a recipe I spotted on Pinterest a week ago and even though I am not a huge fan of deep frying I just could not resist making it. I tweaked the…

Curry and Beer Battered Fish Tacos

Few dishes sound as good as Curry and Beer Battered Fish Tacos in my book. I’m a firm believer you can’t have a curry without some beer so combining the two makes perfect sense to me. The fish is flavoured with…

Sumac and Lemon Roast Chicken

My love affair with the sumac I got from Dubai continues and after making Diana Henry’s Sumac Roast Tomatoes, Lentils and Dukkah Crusted Eggs a week or so ago, I just had to try this Sumac and Lemon Roast Chicken recipe…

Boozy Chocolate Coffee Pudding

I have two types of favourite email. The first is a payment notification and the second is a brief for a recipe that includes the words rich, sticky and boozy. And these Boozy Chocolate Coffee Puddings came from receiving such…

Aubergine Cheesecake

This Aubergine Cheesecake has to count as one of my finds of the year. I originally made a version of this dish for the Cheese issue of the Sunday Times Food Weekly in April of this year.  The issue coincided…

Chocolate Chestnut Brownie

What can be better than chocolate brownies? Chocolate Chestnut Brownies. We South Africans don’t seem to “do” chesnuts and the only time they do cross my path will be on a Xmas cooking show from the northern hemisphere. I’m not…

Gluten Free Vegetable Pies

These should in all honesty be called “Clean Out the Fridge Pies” but Vegetable Pies sound so much better. And if truth be told they really are just collapsed veggie souffles but so tasty that making them, waiting for them…

Pork Belly Kebabs

Another long weekend and your braai is going to love these Pork Belly Kebabs. And if you do not have the pleasure of a long weekend do keep these in your arsenal of dishes worth barbecuing. I think this is…

Roasted Aubergine

This Roasted Aubergine recipe has to be one of the best ways to serve aubergine and is inspired by an Ottolenghi recipe I came across recently. I am buying less and less recipe books as it feels that the market…

Spicy Lime Chicken Wings

I am not much of a sports fan but I might become one just for these Spicy Lime Chicken Wings. Bursting with flavour, smokiness, spice and heat they are a winner, ranking high on the ultimate dude food if you…

Spicy Salted Caramel Popcorn

You just know this Spicy Salted Caramel Popcorn will be good and then it delivers so much more. The sweetness comes through first with the spiciness of the cumin and cinnamon following. On top of that it is super crunchy, leaving…

Falafel l heinstirred.com

Never say you are done falafeling because somehow you end up back in the kitchen making Falafel 2.0. This time you suck it up, be patient, silently apologise to Ottolenghi for thinking he can’t cook and get the dried chickpeas…

Falafel with Spicy Tahini Yoghurt l heinstirred.com

I am all falafeled out after quite a bit of falafeling to get the recipe to work. Who knew the humble chickpea fritter could be such a mission but thanks to my friend Roger, the final recipe for Falafel with…

Watermelon Carpaccio l heinstirred.com

This is one of those combinations that is a bit out of the ordinary but I think it works really well. The play of salty and sweet has been around for a long time, made even more popular with the…

Ostrich Meatballs l heinstirred.com

Every once in a while I make a recipe that just beats expectation on all levels. It is easy to make, tastes fantastic and I think the photos do it absolute justice. These ostrich meatballs in spicy plum sauce is…

Marinated Chicken Kebab l heinstirred.com

These marinated chicken kebabs are a fantastic vehicle for to play with some strong aromatic spices. One of the spice mixes I found on My Collections was the The Brazilian Gaucho mix. Packed with paprika, onion and garlic flakes, cumin, coriander…

Pea Hummus l heinstirred.com

Summer eating has to be easy, colourful and with as little fuss as possible. And as much as the eating must be so must the cooking. And I think this Pea Hummus fits the bill perfectly. The colour is gorgeous…

Berry Parfait l heinstirred.com

This Berry Parfait is somewhere between a parfait and a cheesecake. But either way is a quick and easy dessert with not much fuss. I love the play of the sweet preserved berries with the more tart fresh berries. It…

Smoked Snoek Empanadas

This blogging journey is quite an exciting one I have discovered (between all the dish washing and reheated food!). You post your first recipe (with quite a bit of courage) hoping that someone other than your mother will look at…

Peanut Butter Caramel Slice

These Peanut Butter Caramel Slices should come with a warning. They are insanely good and it takes a lot of self control to not have a next one and another after that. If there is one recipe you ever make…

What an exciting week past it has been! A feature on The Huffington Post and a photo exhibited at the Cape Town iPhoneography exhibition. I am feeling quite lucky that my work is getting noticed and it has given me even more of…

Just over a week ago the lovely people at Cobb dropped off their “Kitchen in a Box”  Premier Cooking System. A nifty outdoor cooker that can roast, fry, grill and bake. It even has a roasting rack to roast a chicken…

Think about your morning cup of tea with a piece of toast and marmalade. Now imagine it as ice cream. Or even better, as an ice cream sandwich. This is the second recipe I developed with the wonderful products that…

It is 1 September and officially Spring in the Southern Hemisphere. And even though there is still a nip in the air, the days are getting longer and summer with its abundance of outdoor eating, stone fruit, berries and long…

One of my pet hates are ingredients added to recipes just to be different without much regard for what it actually tastes like. I am aware that these Tequila Ribs could be one of those recipes. Ribs marinated in tequila…

  The inspiration for this fantastic Onion Tart comes from my friend Conrad, who regularly contributes wine suggestions for the blog. I do like getting inspiration from him. He is not afraid of flavour, interesting combinations or doing things just…

Another name for these Spicy Baked Eggs could easily be Hangover Breakfast. They combine all the elements that I want in a breakfast when the night before might have been too much fun: gluten, fat and spice! And if a…

Another recipe with beer as an ingredient and it is one of my favourite recipes on the blog to date. I love cooking with beer (drinking it too) and looking back there are quite a few recipes on the blog:…

There is a definite chill in the air but armed with cheese, butter, garlic and mushrooms I feel quite prepared for it. And the idea of slow cooked one pot meals with generous lashings of red wine and garlic is…

Labneh is essentially a cheese made from straining yoghurt, resulting in a deliciously thick, creamy and tangy soft cheese. You can use it as you would any cream cheese, as the basis for tzatziki or spread it inside a pita…

This peri peri chicken is so good. The potatoes just as good. And it is even better when you put all the cutlery away and dive in with your hands (as elegant as Nigella does it of course). As South…

At your next barbecue, skip the usual corn on the cob and make this flavourful, colourful and super easy salad recipe given to me by a friend who insisted I try it (and put it on the blog). The salad…

Growing up there were 3 things I looked forward to when there was a braai (barbecue): garlic bread, potato salad and my mom’s “heerlike poeding” (literally translated as delicious pudding) which has to be as South African as a braai…
