Posted on

Continuing my retrospective of the last 500 posts, these are some recipes that are among my favourites. Because I like to try new dishes, a recipe has to be special for me to remember to make it more than once.

Recipes to Try Again from 500 Posts

Posted on

Now that I’ve reached 500 posts and about three years of blogging, I thought it would be a good time to look back through my pictures to to remind myself of dishes I enjoyed but haven’t made for some time. This is the first of three retrospective posts on 500 posts/3 years.

Posted on

I cooked the stems of green asparagus using a method for okra in this fusion dish, after using the asparagus tips in another dish.

I had to adapt this recipe to fit the constraints of my kitchen.

Warm Corn and Bean Salad

Posted on

Origin

I cooked too many kidney beans one day and needed to use the leftovers, so I made a variation of rice and beans with vegetables without the rice.

Ingredients

  • 400 grams cooked and rinsed kidney beans
  • 1 medium onion
  • 2 teaspoons oil
  • 250 grams corn kernels
  • 1/2 green chili (optional)
  • 1/2 pimenton or other sweet red pepper
  • 1-2 teaspoons taco seasoning mix
  • 1 spring onion (scallion) – green part only
  • a few sprigs of coriander leaf (cilantro)
  • salt to taste

Process

Dice the onion finely. Heat the oil in a frying pan on medium-low and add the onion when it is warm. Cook the onion slowly until soft and beginning to brown, stirring frequently.

While the onion is cooking, chop the sweet pepper and the chili and set them aside. Chop the spring onion and mince the coriander leaf.

Add the sweet pepper and chili pepper to the onion. Cook until beginning to soften, about 3 minutes. Add the corn, kidney beans and taco seasoning. Adjust to taste with taco mix and salt. Cook just until the beans and corn are warmed through.

Serve garnished with the chopped coriander and spring onion.

There can never be too many different ways to prepare okra.

Green Smoothie Breakfast Bowl

Posted on

Usually when I make smoothies I make them as a dessert, using fruits and not vegetables, but smoothie breakfast bowls looked like too much fun to pass up. I made the smoothie from cooked and chilled broccoli, a handful of blueberries, a banana, hazelnut milk, and stevia. To decorate I used sunflower seeds, dried goji berries, pumpkin seeds, pinenuts, coconut flakes, sliced almonds, black and white sesame seeds, flax seed powder, and flax seed powder mixed with goji berry.
