Spring time cooking

27 Aug 2015

Can you feel it? That sweet whiff in the air of jasmine just beginning to bloom. The days are getting longer and to my delight Spring fashion is being actively flaunted in all of my favourite clothing stores (note to self: better get some self-tan!). I'm also getting excited when I see fresh asparagus, globe artichokes and deliciously plump cherries and plums waiting to be savoured.

Everyone – Spring is on the way!

It’s almost time to bid your soup pots farewell and say hello to fresh salads, lighter fare and foods that give you the energy to get active and spend time outdoors.

I have my eye on a few things that tickle my taste buds for the season change and I think you’ll like them too!

Crumbed biltong and ricotta fritters

Sumac and lemon roast chicken

Rooibos ginger iced tea

urry and beer battered fish tacos

Date and nut truffles

Prawn rice paper rolls

Grilled chicken and corn salad

Saucy pasta with Spring vegetables

Blueberry frozen yoghurt

Chickpea salad with fennel

Garlic cream fish fillets

Brussels sprout chips

Coconut blueberry muffins (sugar-free and grain-free)

Toffee cheesecake

Are you hungry yet?

Oh, and don’t forget to dust off your braai grid – you’re going to need that too in the next couple of weeks!

Yours in happy Spring-time cooking,
