Chimichurri Rice

This is quite late to wish everyone a grand 2019 but in my defense I have been busy with holidays and family reunions and then recovering from the hangovers of the holidays and family reunions. So happy 2019 to everyone. I begin this year, surprisingly, not with a bread recipe which is usually the norm….

Olive Hummus

If there is something I love almost as much as bread it is a perfect dip to go with it. Also, a soup but I have posted quite a few soups on this blog and so now we shall concentrate on dips. The theme for this week is ‘Dips for Snacks’ and as usual I…

I found this awesome multigrain recipe with olives, tomatoes and garlic and I knew I simply had to make it. It turned out…

Herbs & Garlic Rolls

All through my life I have tried to lose weight. It has mostly not worked because I would not stick to any plan for more than a week. Then I would look at people thinner than me wearing pretty clothes and sulk. This has been going on forever with no end in sight. Finally I…

Mint & Coriander Dip

Continuing with my hung curd spree, today I am posting a quick mint and coriander dip with hung curd. We celebrated my daughter’s birthday over the weekend which is the reason I was left with some mint & coriander chutney as also a whole load of chips that feature in the photos. So I just…

Oven roasted carrot soup

If you want to make anything delicious, I suggest you roast it in the oven. Tomatoes, yes…onions, yes….carrots, yes….sweet potato, yes….garlic ,yes. I think I have made my case. Roasting in the oven gives the dish a lovely aroma and an explosion of flavours that are otherwise not unearthed. I know I have two more…
