East. Fast. Delicious. Perfect for weeknight meals. Spaghetti with sun-dried tomatoes and pecorino romano can be ready in less than 30 minutes. Or serve a smaller portion to start at a dinner party. Like they do in Italy. Primi and secondi. It’s a nice way to eat.
Caesar salad with roasted garlic croutons is serious business. This is not your run-of-the-mill toss it on the table salad. This is an undertaking. A commitment. But the results speak for themselves.
Sometimes light, clean tastes are best. Mediterranean quinoa salad is a fresh and summery dish that’s loaded with flavour. It’s Peru meets Greece in a bowl. And it’s super easy to make. It’s great with grilled chicken or lamb. If you’re into making board sauces when you grill the mix of flavours is fantastic. Tastes like summer to me.
Sag aloo. Spinach and potato curry. Simple. Vegan. Spinach, potatoes and Indian spices. Delicious. It makes a great vegetable accompaniment to any Indian dinner.
Penne with sun-dried tomato cream sauce is fast enough for a weeknight dinner but fancy enough for a special dinner for two. It’s rich and creamy and loaded with flavour. You can even make it a vegetarian dish by just leaving out the chicken.
Tarka dhal. That wonderful, creamy, spiced lentil dish that goes beautifully with every Indian meal. And yet, it’s not one that springs to mind when you think curry. It should be.
