Pandan chicken

⁣ I’ve been wanting to use the pandan leaves in my garden for a savoury dish. This is a classic Thai dish to demonstrate how these versatile leaves aren’t only used in sweets or desserts.⁣⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⁣ It literally is just marinading the chicken pieces (I used breast but boneless thigh pieces would be more flavoursome) in…

Asian-fusion inspiration

⁣ Taiwanese fried chicken, mashed potatoes, picked cucumbers and doubanjiang mayo is my take on Asian-fusion!⁣⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⁣ I was inspired by @nom_life ‘s recent post on Taiwanese fried chicken which is a street food rage! Call it a snack or entire meal, but it’s a larger-than-life piece of fried chicken. Not just any fried chicken though…..

Homemade Bibimbap

⁣Happy New Year!! There’s something comforting about bibimbap to me. I’m not sure if it’s the memories of my parents taking us to Korean restaurants when I was growing up in New Zealand or the fact that it’s this big warm bowl of rice covered with all sorts of bits and pieces that you mix…

Breaded pesto and cheese stuffed chicken breast

⁣ Since moving to Ghana, I’ve learnt to appreciate other cuts of meat. Growing up, we were raised on chicken breast meat as it was lean and healthy but we all know it isn’t the best cut for flavour or tenderness.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⁣ Fast forward to 2020, and I’ve learnt how to re-appreciate this cut and inject…

Atadwe chocolate chip cookies

⁣ On my tigernut (aka atadwe) flour baking streak, I found another great recipe from @thetoastedpinenut to try out. Chocolate chips make everything better and while these cookies turned out more cake like and had a bit of grit from the tigernut flour, it was still tasty and went down a treat. ⁣ You can…

Fluffy Tigernut flour pancakes

I’ve had a pack of tigernut flour from @the_mpampa_cereals for some time needing some love. As weekends are normally pancake days for us at home, I found an easy-to-follow recipe from @primalpalate for these fluffy pancakes.⁣ The original recipe calls for a mix of tigernut and coconut flour. As I didn’t have coconut flour, I…

Easy sweet potato flatbread

⁣ These are so easy, you’d be laughing. Best part is, you can swap it with other types of starches instead of sweet potatoes as well as swap the flour to make it gluten-free or more healthy.⁣ All you need is equal parts of mashed sweet potatoes to flour. I used orange sweet potatoes and…

For the lovers of sweet AND salty

⁣ I’ve found my new favourite cookie recipe. If you’re anything like me and love the combination of sweet AND salty, this is one recipe you have to try.⁣ This wasn’t difficult to make and have a shortbread like texture thanks to the butter and tahini of course. The added sesame seeds on top add…

Healthy and wholesome zucchini and kale soup

⁣⁣ I love soups and especially when it’s using up whatever veggies that might be wilting or just sitting in the fridge for too long.⁣⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⁣ I came across a zucchini soup recipe from @recipe_tin that was so simple, I couldn’t not try it. I also had some stalks of kale left in the veggie drawer…

Craving cornbread? Just make it!

⁣I had a craving for cornbread, something I’ve been meaning to make for a while so armed with the perfect recipe and a packet of ekuegbemi (yellow corn meal) courtesy of @the_mpampa_cereals, I got baking!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⁣ I modified @chefannaolson’s (one of my favourite chefs!) recipe for cornbread and the results were beautiful. The recipe is easy…
