Being a WWF-Sassi ambassador, I felt it would just be right to start off with a nice old favourite. Yellowtail is safely green-listed and it is just amazing with locally foraged samphire and seaweed.
It may look like a simple dish, and it will only take you 20 minutes to whip together, but the flavour combinations of this recipe are not only perfectly balanced, but complex as well. With an allium flavour from the onion and garlic, the tang of the tomatoes and capers, not to mention a bit of bite from the chilli, our spicy calamari pasta is one dish you’ll go back to over and over.
Our pulled pork tacos have everything. A beautifully slow-roasted pork shoulder. A fresh summer slaw. A drool-worthy smoky BBQ sauce. What more could you possible want? While deceptively easy to make, the process is slightly time-consuming, so we recommend whipping them up on a weekend when you can show them off to friends and family.
That satisfying pop when you bite into an ice-cold grape or that gentle sip of red you take after a long working week, there’s something pretty special about these little round fruit that beautifully dots our country’s vineyards. But besides it’s aesthetics and ability to be turned into a beloved alcoholic beverage, we want to explore the wonderful ways in which we can cook with it. So, get your grapes and we’ll meet in the kitchen!
We put a great spin on both the humble potato bake and the chicken dinner by combining the two, as well as adding healthier ingredients and Asian flavours. This sweet potato bake is a perfect mid-week one-pan family meal with hardly any hands-on time and a great way to include protein, carbs and nutrients, making for a balanced plate.
If you are as obsessed with pesto as we are (because who isn’t, right?), then you will be as delighted as we were to find out that foodie royale, Pesto Princess has released a downloadable recipe eBook that can be conveniently stored on your computer, tablet or phone for on the go meal inspiration.
It’s a comfort food mashup! We love pizza (obviously) and we can also make frittata, without encouragement, out of anything we can get our hands on. So here is it, the pizza frittata. And, as a bonus, it’s low-carb and we added red wine.
There really is nothing better than a lazy weekend filled with good old fashioned baking. And with that in mind, we bring you a good old fashioned bake. Pumpkin bread is lovely with the slightest sweet taste that pairs perfectly with melting honey. Finish off with a drizzling of honey and you’ll be in heaven.
Smile! Because we’ve got halloumi kebabs on the menu today! This is one cheese that always goes down well when you have a crowd over, and when it is served on a stick surrounded by bright and sweet peppers, what more could you want? Even better, pop them on the braai for a bit of extra char before serving.
The Italians taught us the winning combo of tomato and basil, now Royco has perfected the flavour in their ready-made sauce mix. Let’s dig in!
