  • Inspiration From my Kitchen

    Some healthy recipes from my kitchen that will be loved by everyone. They are also great for you health wise, so go on, try them. You will definitely be making them again!

    Have You Tried my Granola?

    I get asked for this recipe a lot because I love to make it as a gift and give it to friends and family. I try to base the combinations on the time of year so that not only is it nutritious but also something I may be craving at the time or simply has a festive feel. At Christmas for example I usually do a Christmas granola infused with dried oranges, ginger and cloves, walnuts perhaps and anything that feels like the season. Read the complete recipe here

    Healthy Rhubarb Loaf

    recipe from Donna Hay

    Clafoutis

    Now that cherries are in season this is one of my favourite deserts to make.

    You can make it with either fresh or jarred cherries.

    this recipe comes originally from my mother in law passed down to her from her mother.

     

    3 tablespoons of flour

    3 tablespoons of sugar

    2 eggs

    1 jar of cherries drained or 1 1/2 cups fresh cherries with pits

    1 tablespoon of kirsch ( or brandy)

    1 cup of milk

    1 tablespoon of vanilla sugar

     

    Mix all ingredients together except vanilla sugar.

    Beat and mix in the eggs and kirsch.

    Put the cherries in the bottom of an ovenproof dish and pour the batter over the cherries. Bake at 350 degrees for 40 mins. Just before it's finished cooking sprinkle with the vanilla sugar.

    Serve at room temperature.

     

     

    Plum and raspberry crumble

    This recipe is from one of my favourite cookbooks given to me by my good friend Julie.

    It's called "Apples for Jam" and it is filled with lovely photos, heartfelt stories and amazing family recipes that are delicious.

    This is supposed to be made with pears and blueberries but I've made it with all sorts of different fruits and it's just as good.

     

    1 kg fruit

    1 cup mixed berries

    70 g sugar

    200 g flour

    50g brown sugar

    150g softened butter

    1 teaspoon vanilla extract

     

    Preheat your oven to 375 degrees F. Generously butter a 36x22x 6cm ovenproof dish. Halve the plums take out the pits and place them in the dish. Mix in the berries and sprinkle half the white sugar overtop.. Mix together the the flour, brown sugar and the rest of the white sugar in a bowl. Add the butter and vanilla and with your fingers rub the mixture together until you get a damp, sand like consistency. Scatter the topping over the fruit to cover it completely . Bake for 45 minutes, or until the top is nicely golden. Serve warm or at room temperature with whipped cream or ice cream.

     

     

    Barry's pork tenderloin

    This recipe is one of my family's favourites. It's so easy to do and comes from a very special person in my family.

    Sometimes I make extra and freeze the second piece so I can later pull it out of the freezer for a quick school night dinner.

    Eaten with green beans, a green salad and potatoes and you've got a great dinner.

     

    In a ziplock bag or a bowl put your meat and add

    1 cup of olive oil

    1/2 cup of honey or maple syrup

    1/4 cup or less of soy sauce

    minced garlic

     

    you can also add ginger, lemon juice and any herb you like.

    Marinade in the fridge overnight or at least 2 hours.

     

    Heat the bbq or a skillet until hot.

    Sear the meat on both sides then let cook about 12 mins, 6 minutes on both sides, until inside temperature is 139 degree. Let rest 3-5 mins

    serve

     

     

    Elderberry Syrup

    This recipe is a lifesaver in the winter to boost your immune system.

    Elderberries are full of antioxidants and vitamin C. Both honey or maple syrup have

    anti bacterial properties making this syrup delicious and ohh so good for you!

    It,s really easy to make and my kids love it too ( well not always but its good for them! )

    The only challenge is finding the elderberries. Check local farmer;s markets and health food stores.

     

    For a 500ml

    1lb elderberries

    1 liter of water1.2 cup - 1 cup honey or maple syrup.

     

    Boil the elderberries in the water until it becomes a thick syrup about 45 minutes.

     

    Let cool then add the honey or maple syrup.

     

    Drink 2 ounces every morning to stave off cold and flues.

    Drink 2 ounces 3 times a day if you have a cold or flu.

     

     

     

     

    My homemade Spicy oil

    I make this recipe all the time. It's super easy super delicious, good for you and less expensive than most spicy oils.

     

    For a 250ml

    a variety of 8-10 different chilies

    I buy thai chili, scotch bonnet, shisito, jalepeno chilies

    3/4 cup olive oil

     

    gently simmer the chilies in the oil until the become somewhat soft and very fragrant.

    About 10 mins.

     

    Remove from heat and place in a jar.

    Does not need to be kept in the refrigerator depending on how often you use it.

    Delicious Spelt flour Pear and Cranberry muffins

    I adapted this recipe from Sophie Dahl,s cookbook Miss Dahl;s Voluptuous Delights.

    I decided to add fresh cranberries because I've been craving them and I added less sugar than was called for.

     

    Ingredients:

    -2 tsp baking powder
    -1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
    -1 tsp ground ginger
    -1 tsp ground cinnamon
    -145g Spelt flour-

    145g rolled oats
    -225g Pear fruit puree (organic baby food works great!)
    -4 egg whites lightly beaten (I used 2 whole eggs lightly whipped)
    -125ml natural yoghurt-

    1 2 cup of maple syrup

    -1 firm pear - peeled, cored and diced (+ an extra pear for decorative slices on top if you like)
    -110g cranberries

    Preheat the oven to 350 degrees
    Line a 12

    muffin tin with paper cases.
    Sift baking powder, bicarbonate of soda, ginger, cinnamon and nutmeg into a large mixing bowl. Stir in the flour and oats.
    Make a well in the middle and add the wet ingredients and the raisins and diced pear. Fold it together, but don't over mix as a lumpy batter makes a lighter muffin.
    Pour the batter into the tray, filling each 2/3 full. Bake for 25-30 minutes.

    Ingredients:

    -200 grams good quality dark chocolate
    -6 eggs

    pinch of salt

    Petit Pots de Creme

    Either vanilla or chocolate

    This is from a French cookbook that I've had for awhile but I never tried this recipe until this Christmas. It is so easy to make and delicious and great if you need a gluten free dessert. I make several and use them for school lunches.

    Makes 4

     

    Vanilla:

    1 2/3 cup milk

    vanilla pod

    3 egg yolks

    1 egg

    1/3 cup sugar

     

    Preheat the oven to 300 degrees.

    Prepare your ramekins and a roasting tin for a bain marie.

    Put the milk in a saucepan. Spilt the vanilla pod in two, scrape out the seeds and put everything in the milk. Bring the milk just to a boil.

    Meanwhile mix together the egg yolks, egg and sugar. Strain the boiling milk over the egg mixture and mix vigorously. Laddle into ramekins and place in the roasting tin. Add enough boiled water to reach half way up the sides of the ramekins and bake for 45 minutes or until set.

    To make the chocolate pots add 1 tablespoon of cocoa and 2 oz. of good quality dark chocolate to the milk instead of the vanilla.

    Caprese Salad

    One of my favourite summer salads

    This is so delicious when the tomatoes are ripe and the basil is plentiful. It is one of my favourite summer salads that I learned to make when I worked at Terroni many years ago. Caprese salad is the type of dish that tastes better with better quality ingredients so I usually only make it in the summer when the tomatoes are at their peak and I use the best quality olive oil I have on hand. I'm also a purest so I never add vinegar to this dish.

     

    2 ripe tomatoes

    4 boccocini

    fresh basil

    olive oil

    salt and pepper

     

    Mix all the ingredients and serve.

    Homemade BBQ Sauce

    Why buy BBQ sauce when you can make it

    I do a variation of this every time I use BBQ sauce depending on my mood and the meat.

     

    2 cups of ketchup

    half cup of apple cider vinegar

    1 teaspoon cumin powder

    1 tablespoon chili powder

    1 teaspoon fume mix from La Pincee

    1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce

    1 teaspoon of tabasco or chili of your choice.

    Depending on what you are making you can add either bourbon, scotch or beer for more liquid.

     

    Let your meat marinade or use right away. You can also boil this doen to spread on the meat at the last minute.

    Happy BBQing!
