Savoury Filling

Monday, November 24th, 2008

This is a very versatile mix that can be used in many combinations and different dishes.  I use this mix for a savoury pancake filling, pies, and wraps. It is a very easy recipe, the only effort is chopping the vegetables 🙂   Use your imagination and the possibilities are endless.

I first had something similar to this when we were invited over for dinner by one of my husband’s niece.  I thought it was quite clever to roast the vegetables without marinating, and have the simple flavours.  Then a few years later, when I was in a rush, I had some vegetables that I tossed into a frying pan and let them cook on a high flame and they tasted quite good. They became a little caramelized and spicy because of adding the chilli sauce at the end.

Give it a go and tell me how you liked the recipe and also what you used it in.

Pancakes

Friday, November 14th, 2008

When ever we visit my family and stay over, we always make pancakes for one of the days for breakfast/brunch. Before this recipe we used to use a ready made packet brand. As we do not even eat eggs we are always looking for recipes where we can substitute them for other items. So this is the perfect recipe. Eat them hot that is the best way to enjoy them.

Here are some ideas for added ingredients and toppings. Try putting frozen blueberries, after you have spooned in the mixture in the pan, then when the bubbles appear flip over. Another good addition is to slice a few banana pieces on top and sprinkle cinnamon, both of these are pretty good as the caramelization of the fruit makes them naturally sweet.

My younger sister even did a kind of Indian version once, where she added saffron and cardamom powder to the batter. When serving place a scoop of good vanilla ice cream – YUM! Even strawberries and cream is a good combination that she make when ever they are in season. I also like to put chocolate spread and passion fruit pulp on top, that is pretty good too.

If you wish to make a meal out of it, then perhaps make a little savoury filling to go with all the various sweet options. There is a full recipe for the savoury filling here. These are just some ideas that you might like to try out once you have the basic mastered.
