Mediterranean Pie

Mediterranean

I was given this recipe by my older sister a few years back, it was a simple onion, tomato and capsicum peppers pie. She had suggested that I could add mushrooms as my husband likes them so I did.  I tend to use the savoury filling that I make for pancake filling and wraps, which is the same as the original recipe I was given.  It is a good dish to enjoy as a light lunch with friends or you can make a meal out of it and perhaps serve it with side salad, roast potatoes, stuffed mushrooms etc.  It is a good combination of the ingredients and is a very indulgent creamy/cheesy recipe.

Stuffed Mushrooms

Sunday, November 23rd, 2008

I created this recipe after having them from a take-away pizza place. My husband loves mushrooms and got them as a side order with the pizza. I tried to recreate it and worked out what the ingredients were. It has been a good side dish to serve with salad for a light lunch or accompanying something more filling. Just to make life easier I use open cup flat mushrooms, but I have also made them using closed cup mushrooms. This takes some time to make but it is good to serve as a starter.

Root vegetable & mushroom stew with cheese dumplings

Sunday, November 16th, 2008

I came across this recipe from a supermarket magazine. It looked great and I always wanted to try and make dumplings. I adapted the recipe and changed the vegetables to what I would normally keep or vegetables I use for roasting during autumn/winter. If you do not want everything to be the same colour then just remove the beetroot. You can also add a can of beans (of your choice) or a lentil & grain mix, this makes it more wholesome.

I am glad I tried the recipe as it has been a hit with everyone who has tried it. This recipe is a very good warm and comforting food, especially when the weather starts to get colder. Serve it with some bread rolls or garlic bread. I hope that you enjoy this recipe as much as I do. Give it a go, it is the correct season for it 🙂
