Bobotie

Veggie-Packed Bobotie

Our five year old reckons this bobotie is "better than infinity chocolates"! Long may that last!

Bobotie (pronounced ba-boer-ty) is a well-known South African dish made up of spiced mince baked with an egg-custard topping. We eat this loads! Tonight the man of the house cooked a double of this recipe which made enough for tonight's dinner (for our family of four), plus two more family sized meals for the freezer. His secret is to add fried streaky bacon to the mix as well.

The recipe below is mild on the curry flavours. The spices could easily be beefed up for those with more adventurous palettes.

Apologies for the poor quality photo - I had to snap a quick shot of the freezer meal. Tonight's dinner didn't last long enough to get my camera near it!

This recipe is from "Raising Superheroes" by Prof Tim Noakes, Jonno Proudfoot and Bridget Surtees. Thank you to infinity 🙂

Mean Green Vegetable Soup

This gorgeous green soup has been copied from Chelsea Winter's website www.chelseawinter.co.nz and contains no less than 12 fabulous vegetables! A couple of Chelsea's tips:
# It’s a pretty forgiving recipe, so you can use up the veges you have lying around. If it’s too thick, thin it out with more stock or cream.
# For a superfood boost, add some kale leaves in when simmering the other vegetables.
# When using the leek, discard the very outer leaves and the firm dark green tops.
# To make this soup dairy-free, leave out the Parmesan, swap the butter with coconut oil and replace the crème fraîche and cream with 2 cups of coconut milk and/or coconut cream.
