Shakshuka

Shakshuka

Shakshuka is a North African dish made with a rich and spicy tomato sauce, accompanied by runny, oozing eggs.

It is quite often served as a breakfast or lunch dish, however, I have bulked things up a little here with addition of some lamb meatballs.

Shakshuka is a quick and simple midweek dish that can be cooked up in a big pan, put in the middle of the dinner table so everyone can just get stuck in. The spicing is mild enough for the kids to love it too!

Guacamole

Guacamole these days is a well known component to the Friday /Saturday night tradition of chips & dips – you know, the usuals… tortilla or posh Kettle chips with cream cheese & chive, hummus, taramasalata (if you’re feeling adventurous), and of course Guacamole.

Proper homemade Guacamole, should be rich and creamy from really good quality, and really ripe Avocados

For me the initial texture should be followed up with a bit of a kick! This comes from finely chopped shallots or red onions, hot red chilli and I always add a bit of Garlic

Sriracha

Sriracha

This bright red, hot sauce is made from red chili peppers, garlic, vinegar, salt, and sugar. The sauce is hot and tangy with just a hint of sweetness, and I must admit, I am absolutely addicted to it!

Sriracha sauce is often served as a condiment in Thai, Vietnamese, and Chinese restaurants. And the plastic green lidded Rooster bottle it is sold and served in has become as iconic as the sauce itself.
