Italian Tomato & Rice Soup
Description: This soup freezes really well so make a big pot and store some up for the days you just don't feel like cooking. Enjoy!

Serving Size: 6 - 8 servings as a side dish
Difficulty: easy

Ingredients:

2 cups water
1 12 oz. jar chunky salsa
1 cup low-sodium tomato juice
1/3 cup quick-cooking brown rice
1 tablespoon dried minced onion
1 teaspoon dried Italian seasoning, crushed
1/2 teaspoon instant chicken bouillon granules
1/8 teaspoon dried minced garlic
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1 16 oz. package loose-pack frozen zucchini, carrots, cauliflower, lima beans, & Italian green beans

Preparation:

US Measurements

Instructions:

In a large saucepan combine the water, salsa, tomato juice, uncooked brown rice, dried onion, Italian seasoning, bouillon granules, dried garlic, and pepper. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Cover and simmer for 10 minutes.
Meanwhile, place the frozen vegetables in a colander. Run cold water over the vegetables until thawed. Stir the vegetables into the rice mixture. Return to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, covered, for 5 to 10 minutes or until the rice and vegetables are tender.
NOTES - If you want to make a double batch, which is what I usually do, I have a couple of suggestions. 1. Don't double the rice, instead use 1/4 cup. If you double the rice, it soaks up the liquid of the soup too much. 2. You can use vegetable bouillon instead of chicken and enjoy this great soup on Fridays in Lent.

Thai Garlic Bread
Description: As my knowledge concerning to copyright issues is almost none I thought I should post the link to the site where I got this recipe. http://goodfood.uktv.co.uk/
I didn`t use sesame oil and ginger, cause I didn`t have it at home, even though it came out great and very spicy.

Difficulty: easy

Ingredients:

3 garlic cloves
3 stalks lemon grass, roughly chopped
1 tsp grated fresh ginger root
1 fresh red chilli, deseeded and chopped
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp sesame oil
juice of 1 lime
good handful of fresh coriander, stems removed, leaves roughly chopped
1 baguette or ciabatta

Preparation:

Preheat the grill

Instructions:

Using a pestle and mortar, grind all the ingredients, except the bread (no kidding ! ),to a chunky paste.
Slice the bread horizontally in half, all the way through.
Spread the spice mixture evenly over the two pieces of the bread.
Place under the preheated grill for 1 minute until heated through.

The Best Marinade for Roast Lamb ever!
Description: I came across a simplified version of this recipe and made my own "tweaks" to it. I can honestly say it yielded the best, mosst tasty roast lamb that either Deon or I have ever had! I will always use this recipe from now on.

Metric Units
Difficulty: easy

Ingredients:

1 leg of lamb (with or without the bone)
75ml honey
30ml Dijon mustard
30ml dried or fresh chopped rosemary
15ml dried or fresh chopped origanum (oregano)
10ml garlic salt OR 3 cloves of garlic, crushed
10ml lemon juice
5ml freshly ground black pepper
5ml coarse sea salt
5ml dried or fresh chopped mint

Instructions:

Combine all the ingredients (except the lamb) in a bowl that is big enough to hold the leg of lamb.
With a sharp knife, make several small cuts in the lamb so that the marinade can penetrate the meat. Using a pastry brush, apply the marinade to the meat, coating thoroughly.
Place lamb in the bowl with the marinade. Cover and refrigerate, leaving to marinate over night (or longer), turning once.
Place lamb in a foil lined & greased roasting pan. Pour remaining marinade over the meat.
Cook in a preheated oven (180 degrees Celcius) for approx. 30 minutes per 500g of meat
Allow roast to stand for 5 - 10 minutes before serving.

Delicious Spinach & Ham Stuffed Mushrooms
Description: I came up with this recipe and made it on V Day this year. It is a little bit of work, but well worth it!

Metric Units
Difficulty: Medium

Ingredients:

8 - 16 large mushrooms for stuffing (e.g Oyster or Portobello)
1 packet creamed spinach, cooked
125ml fresh cream
1 small onion, peeled and finely chopped
75ml - 100ml dry white wine
30ml butter or margerine
75 - 100g sandwich ham, finely chopped
1 wheel of Feta cheese, crumbled
500ml Mozarella cheese, grated
Corn flour for thickening

Instructions:

Pre-heat oven to 180 degrees Celcius
Wash & clean mushroom. Top the stems, then carefully remove the remaining stem from the mushroom caps. Chop finely and set aside.
Melt the butter. Brush the caps on both sides with the melted butter. Place them in a shallow greased dish or a foil lined & greased baking tray - whicher can accommodate the mushrooms in a single flat layer.
In a large frying pan, sauté the onion, ham and mushroom stems until tender and the onion has become translucent. Add in the wine and stir to mix.
Add the creamed spinach and then the cream. Heat through but do not allow to boil.
Add the feta cheese and stir until melted.
Stir until thickened, addin corn flour if necessary. Mixture should be fairly thick and not runny.
Pile mixture on top of mushrooms and top with a generous helping of Mozarella cheese
Bake in the oven for about 20 minutes until mushrooms are juicy and tender. Serve immediately

Creamy Chicken Sauce
Description: Here's a quick creamy chicken sauce that I use on pasta or buttered rice and my kids luv it.

Metric Units

500gms chicken fillet - cut into bite sized pieces
1 or 2 medium sized red or green peppers - cut into bite sized pieces
1 small onion - chopped
3 cloves garlic chopped
1 can mushroom soup
1/2 cup water
a little olive oil

Instructions:

Heat pan with olive oil
add in onions & garlic and fry till soft.
Add in chicken pieces
when chicken is almost cooked through, add in peppers, mushroom soup and water when chicken is almost cooked through (The amount of water you add is really up to you and how thick you'd like the sauce to be)
stir until mixture is a smooth consistency.
Bring to boil then take off the heat.
Let sauce rest for a few minutes before serving as it well thicken slightly as it cools.
I also like to add some chilli flakes to give it a bit of a zing.
