Homemade Yoghurt Flatbreads

Homemade Yoghurt Flatbreads

If you have never made bread before then this is the recipe for you.  There are hundreds of Homemade Yoghurt Flatbread recipes out there but I found Jamie Oliver’s to be the simplest and the most successful.  Although the dough is slightly sticky and flour goes...
Middle Eastern Lamb Shoulder, Freekeh Salad, Garlic Yoghurt

Middle Eastern Lamb Shoulder, Freekeh Salad, Garlic Yoghurt

Lamb shoulder is the total goods, particularly slow cooked, Middle Eastern style with a gloriously nutty, fresh and zesty salad and roasted garlic infused yoghurt. There really is not much more to say about this one except that I am advising you to cook it, today. If...
Greek Lamb & Fetta Meatball Tray Bake

Greek Lamb & Fetta Meatball Tray Bake

I have a new found love in my life. It’s a tray bake. How can you whack a few items on a tray, bung it in the oven and completely knock it out of the park on the flavour scale? Admittedly, there is a little yoghurt dressing for this one and you do need to blanch...
Freekeh, Lamb & Carrot Salad with Tahini Yoghurt

Freekeh, Lamb & Carrot Salad with Tahini Yoghurt

Freekeh, Quinoa, Bulgur, Farro, Amaranth…….where does the list of Ancient Grains end? And where the bloody hell have they come from? Is it just me or have they all come out of the wood work in the last couple of years? I consider myself to be fairly...
Spiced Cauliflower ‘Steaks’ with Split Pea Dahl

Spiced Cauliflower ‘Steaks’ with Split Pea Dahl

This dish was a real statement,  ‘Vegetarian food is not boring’.  My Husband raved about this meal, not for the fact that there was zero meat in it, but for the fact that you really didn’t notice its absence.  Packed full of spices and goodness, it...
Turkish Lamb Meatballs in Warm Yoghurt Sauce

Turkish Lamb Meatballs in Warm Yoghurt Sauce

I am a HUGE fan of Turkish food.  I love its simplicity and this divine recipe I found on the Internet by Janet Fletcher from a book called ‘Yoghurt’ was no exception.  There are a few steps to this recipe but it is really quite simple and the end result...

Tandoori Chicken with Mango Yoghurt & Cous Cous Salad

I recently returned from holidays to find that my Sister, who was house sitting at the time, had left a large bowl of Tandoori Chicken marinating in the fridge for our dinner.  What a little Darlin’!  Not only was it sublimely tender and tasty, it was also an...
Lamb Shank Rogan Josh

Lamb Shank Rogan Josh

I understand that people are often put off by a long ingredient list.  What I have come to realise, cooking dishes like this from scratch is that once you have the ingredients, you can make so many dishes inspired by India, The Middle East, Lebanon etc etc and it...
Greek Slow Roasted Lamb Shoulder with Kipfler Potatoes

Greek Slow Roasted Lamb Shoulder with Kipfler Potatoes

Woah.  This dish was stunning.  The most tender, juicy lamb, floating in a fragrant, Greek inspired sauce laden with gorgeous, waxy Kipfler potatoes.  Dotted with a  few briny Kalamata olives and a dollop of luscious Greek yoghurt this was restaurant quality, for...
Moroccan Chicken, Prune & Almond Tagine

Moroccan Chicken, Prune & Almond Tagine

I love Moroccan or Middle Eastern inspired dishes.  They deliver on every level….hearty, sweet, savoury and really easy, one pot cooking.  This dish was no exception.  Tender chicken pieces, skin on and bone in, nestled in a subtly spiced, tomato based sauce...
French Toast with Berry Compote, Yoghurt & Toasted Almonds

French Toast with Berry Compote, Yoghurt & Toasted Almonds

For many years I was not a breakfast person and most definitely not a ‘French Toast’ breakfast person.  In recent years I have come to adore this ‘most important meal of the day’.  The reasons for this is that as I have gotten older (dare I say...
