This is a Greek/Turkish style dish. Cinnamon is the key to the taste here. Its a spice I often forget about and only remember when making apple pies. But the Greeks know that cinnamon works brilliantly with meat. I served this with a Greek salad incorporating salty Feta cheese and black olives...
This is adapted from a recipe by Yotam Ottolenghi from his book Plenty More. He uses goat's cheese and adds a few other ingredients. This is a simplified version using feta for a salty tang combined the earthy sweetness of the swede (rutabaga). I would serve one or two per person as a starter...
This is a vegetarian dish made with the Indian cheese Paneer. It is quick and easy to make. Here is the procedure:
1/2 tablespoon ghee or 1⁄2tablespoon unsalted butter
1cup paneer/cheese, cubed
1teaspoon ginger-garlic paste
1⁄2teaspoon chili paste
1pinch turmeric powder
This is an interesting recipe because it can be served either hot or as a salad. I came up with the idea after making Chicken and Seville Orange Khoresh which calls for orange peel and carrots. I was interested in the method for cooking them in julienne strips. I knew that orange worked well...
This is a recipe I've been working on for a while as a 'bifurcating' recipe. Sounds a bit rude! But what I mean is that I cook it for meat lovers and vegetarians using the same basic processes. The vegetarian version is virtually identical in method. It looks every bit as pretty and takes a lot...
This is another interesting way in which rice can be prepared. This recipe was taken from "Caribbean Cookbook." I figured it would be a good recipe to enter in the Cooking Bites Recipe Challenge.
2 cups rice
4 cups water
1-1/2 oz butter
1 large onion
2 teaspoons salt
We need some more pepper for The Cooking Bites Challenge and this right here might be good especially for those of you dealing with the cold weather.
6-8 Red Bell Peppers
½ an onion chopped
2 tablespoons olive oil
5 cloves of garlic
4 cups of vegetable stock
2 teaspoons hot sauce...
This is one of my creations that has not only worked out really well but is also surprisingly low calorie, packed with protein and quite substantial. It will serve 6-8 without rice quite generously, so you may need to adjust the quantities and you are going to need a large pan!
The list of...
I came across this recipe on the Huffington post website and soon located the 'original' on the minimalist Baker website. I like it because it is so simple and easy and it is vegan by default. I haven't made too many adjustments to it unlike my normal... Other than cutting back on the amount...
I love a good pizza even if it's not that great for me and if you can replace the flour with peppers, why not? Here goes my first recipe for the Challenge.
1 large green bell pepper
¼ cup pizza or spaghetti sauce
¼ cup grated cheese
a pinch of red pepper flakes
a pinch of basil or...
Slightly off topic from the Cooking Bites Recipe Challenge, but here is an article about the history of peppers in Japan. I find things like this fascinating - just learning about when certain foods were introduced to the country interests me!
Also, just a fun fact - green peppers are the most...
I rather like this recipe because of its simplicity. I've taken the recipe directly from here with a couple of minor changes but I have come across the same recipe in many places. There are various alteratives to the recipe including roasting the veg before hand or simply roasting the red...

4 sweet peppers
