Quick, simple and delicious! Made from pantry ingredients, these Corn Fritters were a hit. All three of my boys gobbled up them up at dinner time. I was literally fighting off grabby little hands while I tried to grab a quick picture for this post.
This delicious Tortilla Soup was part of our regular winter dinner rotation for many years. We first tasted this soup on our honeymoon in Belize, though it’s generally considered a Mexican recipe. This is a vegetarian version of Tortilla Soup with all the same great flavours! Top with baked tortillas and your favourite Mexican toppings.
This quick stir fried Indian dish is perfect for a weekday dinner. Paneer and peppers makes a simple, yet delicious combination that cooks up less than 15 minutes! I like this dish with a good amount of heat which is complimented by the mild flavour of paneer, and cooking the peppers until they’ve just begun to soften adds a nice sweetness.
I simply love good bitter flavours brought to life with salt and spice! This Spicy Cabbage Sabzi is a perfect answer to my craving. The addition of the fresh green cilantro really freshens up the dish. Similarly, the quick squeeze of lemon gives it a nice kick of acid adding brightness and balancing out the earthy bitterness of the cabbage and spices.
Egg Rice is a go lunch or dinner that my mother-in-law makes for my boys using leftover rice. It cooks up quickly in the pan with just a handful of basic ingredients. Served with yoghurt, it’s a great way to introduce some basic Indian flavours.
Tomatoes. My one real food dislike. There’s something about the acidity of fresh tomatoes that has been a turn off for me …
A home version of famous Korean Jap Chae, this Glass Noodle Salad is a quick a delicious crowd-pleaser! Korean inspired, this Glass Noodle Salad uses sweet potato vermicelli, simple sauteed vegetables and a quick dressing of pantry staples.
Delish one bite treats, these Energy Bites pack some protein and a mini burst of flavour. These are a perfect mid afternoon pick me up and also make a great sweet for adding to school lunches.
Besan Chila (chickpea pancakes) are thin, spiced pancakes often served with yogurt as an Indian breakfast food. We love them for a quick and easy kid-approved dinner!
Thank to everyone who sampled my food at the Northumberland Sunrise Rotary Men Who Cook Women Who Sizzle event!
I had such a great time cooking for you and meeting you all!
