Chicken with mushrooms and spinach

 

There is definitely a winter chill in the air! Bring on the boots, scarves, hot chocolate and cosy evenings by the fire, I love it all. Also, what better excuse to embrace comfort food (although if I’m honest I do that all year round) and dishes like this easy one pan chicken meal.

Tandoori chicken

 

I recently got my hands on a beautiful new cookbook by Zorah Booley (creator of In The Midnight Kitchen). “The Everyday Low-FODMAP cookbook” is filled with delicious recipes designed around good gut health, to help soothe inflammation and reduce the symptoms associated with IBS. The book includes everything from comforting side dishes to breakfasts, easy meals to decadent desserts, and more. And with such a gorgeous selection of dishes no-one ever needs to feel left out or deprived when following the Low-FODMAP diet.

Crustless mini roasted veggie quiches

 

So here’s a fun fact about moi, I am obsessed with roasted veggies. And while my Insta feed is often filled with sweet treats I am truly a huge veggie fan. It’s also no secret that veggies are enjoying their time in the limelight and this recipe is a delicious way to enjoy them.

Beef trinchado with bread rolls

 

The weather (not to mention the general atmosphere) has been pretty dreary, so I thought that this comfort meal would be the perfect thing to share this week. You’ll definitely want to add beef trinchado to your winter menu, and take your tastebuds on a virtual trip to Portugal at the same time!

Spicy lamb lahmacun

Spicy mince lahmacun recipe

We are a house of pizza lovers, but sometimes it’s nice to mix it up a little and make something other than the regular cheese and tomato feast. This is where lahmacun (essentially a dough flatbread topped with a minced meat mixture) is a very tasty alternative. I put this scrumptious recipe together a few years ago for a tv cooking segment and realised that I’d never actually shared it here, time to rectify that!

Tomato bredie

Tomato and lamb bredie

 

While Cape Town still decides whether it is actually spring or not (and I sit and type at my desk watching the clouds gather outside) I thought I’d sneak in a cooler weather dish. Tomato bredie is a South African family pleaser and has the marvellous combination of lamb, fragrant spices and tomatoes that we know and love. Once all of the ingredients are in the pot you can leave it to work its magic until its time to serve up. Scrumptious!

Chicken and rice bowl with macadamia dukkah

 

We’re all familiar with the adage “you eat with your eyes first” and I couldn’t agree more. I also think that having lots of colour on your plate is always a good idea, but I deviated from this idea in today’s recipe which I developed for Cheers Magazine earlier this year.
