    Recipe Baked aubergine with spiced mince beef and whipped feta

    The spiced mince (ground) beef in this dish is intriguing. I think its the combination of allspice with Scotch bonnet chilli which does the trick. The whipped feta adds a lovely tangy taste which contrasts with 'hidden honey/maple syrup' on the aubergine. The quantities given for the beef serve...

    Recipe Creamy Baba Ghanou with yoghurt

    I recently came across a recipe with Greek yoghurt in the Baba Ghanou ( eggplant dip) and I have to say it's a great addition. It makes for a lighter and creamier dip. So here's my version, edited to my preferences. I eat this with crusty bread. What you need: 2 Medium aubergines/eggplants 3...

    Blistered Padrón peppers with green herb dip

    This dip is somewhat inspired by American ranch dressing but there is no buttermilk or mayo here. Padron peppers are a common ingredient for tapas in Spain. They are usually very mild except that occasionally you can come across a hot one. So you can play a sort of chilli roulette with this...

    Recipe Crispy fried egg with whipped garlic yoghurt

    This is inspired by a Turkish dish called cilbir. Most recipes for this dish use poached eggs but I noticed in a recipe book I have, that the Turkish author described this dish as using fried eggs. Here, I’ve used crispy fried eggs because I think their texture contrasts well with the smooth...

    Recipe Egg curry

    Toasted coconut adds a nutty flavour to this curry. I used mild Kashmiri chilli for the lovely red colour it imparts but you could add a hotter ground chilli as well, for a spicier curry. The yoghurt adds tang and body to the aromatic curry sauce. Serve with rice or flatbreads. Ingredients...
