Teriyaki Quorn & Tofu Donburi

Posted 1:00pm Saturday 8th October 2016 by Kirsten Garcia

For all the vegans, if Quorn isn't already your friend, it will be. The Quorn pieces are the closest plant based product I have found that resembles the texture of chicken. There is also a "mince" product too, you can find them both in the frozen products aisle at your Read more...

Beef Empanadas

Posted 1:08pm Saturday 24th September 2016 by Kirsten Garcia

I loved these growing up, my mum makes the best ones. It was a good day when I got to bring these for school lunches. Empanadas are little Spanish savoury pies with nice flaky pastry. You can use premade pastry if you are short for time.  Makes: 10-12 empanadas Serves: Read more...

10 of the 11 not so secret herbs & spices

Posted 2:20pm Saturday 17th September 2016 by Kirsten Garcia

This week, I did an experiment to recreate Colonel Sander’s infamous fried chicken. At 65 years old, and on a benefit income, Colonel Sanders built what would become the second largest fast food chain in the world. The recipe was one of the biggest trade secrets of our time, until it was Read more...

Bobotie & Yellow Rice

Posted 1:19pm Saturday 10th September 2016 by Kirsten Garcia

My first taste of Bobotie and Yellow Rice was at a charity dinner with all African cuisine. This is a South African dish. My flatmate from Zambia also made it for dinner once. Both times I've had it, it was nothing but delicious and memorable, so I had a crack at making it myself.  If Read more...

Chicken Satay

Posted 1:03pm Sunday 4th September 2016 by Nick Blankendaal

I am Dutch so I thought “oh I’ll make something Dutch!” Alas, I couldn’t find anything really Dutch. Just Pancakes or how to make pea soup. I settled on making a meal based around a satay sauce recipe which, according to Wikipedia, the Dutch stole from Indonesia and is now Read more...

La Crepe

Posted 11:55am Sunday 21st August 2016 by Kirsten Garcia

If you love good vibes and yummy crepes you can find them both at the La Crepe stall at the Saturday Morning Farmers Market. Disclaimer: I have worked for Christophe and Marie flipping crepes at the market for more than a year and a half now, only a fraction of their almost 12 years at the market. I Read more...

Shakshuka

Posted 5:47pm Monday 15th August 2016 by Kirsten Garcia

Shakshuka is a traditional Israeli breakfast, good for any time of the day with cooked eggs on top of a savoury tomato sauce. This is the best way to eat runny eggs in my opinion.  It's meant to be a bit spicy so if you're after a kick, add some chilli, cayenne pepper, or use smoked Read more...

A Waste of Food

Posted 1:44pm Sunday 31st July 2016 by Kirsten Garcia

So instead of a recipe I thought I’d write another important aspect to consider about food. It's an all too familiar scenario at my flat with leftover dinners. It's a particular problem for one of my flatmates, who forgets about food and ends up buying more while the forgotten food Read more...

Split Pea Fritter Stack

Posted 1:13pm Sunday 24th July 2016 by Kirsten Garcia

Split Peas are commonly used in soups and curries. They have a surprisingly high amount of protein which means they are filling, and they’re budget as can be, making them a very economical option for flat cooking. This recipe is basically corn fritters, replacing half of the corn with split Read more...

Chicken Fajitas

Posted 1:35pm Sunday 17th July 2016 by Kirsten Garcia

Fajitas are a grilled meat usually accompanied with onions and bell peppers and served on a tortilla. At most restaurants they’ll serve the meat and veggies to you on a sizzling plate. You then assemble the ingredients on to the tortilla yourself with as much extra cheese and guac your heart Read more...
