Mixed Leaf Salad, Cottage Cheese And Roasted Pine Nuts ©

November 28, 2017

 

 

 

 

A lovely light healthy salad which is quick and easy to make!

 

 

 

IMG_1449

Easy

 

 

4 persons

 

Preparation Time : 10 minutes

 

 

Ingredients

100 g bag of mixed washed salad leaves

1 red apple cubed

2 heaped tbs cottage cheese

Fresh Coriander leaves or any other fresh herb

1-2 tbs roasted pine nuts

 

French Dressing

1/2 tsp salt

1 tsp Dijon mustard

1 tbs lemon juice

3 tbs Virgin olive oil

 

Method

  1. Empty mixed salad leaves into a basin of salted water together with herb leaves. Leave two minutes and place in salad shaker and wiz. If you don’t have one, place in colander, cover with clean tea towel and shake. You don’t want any extra water in your leaves.
  2. Dry roast pine nuts in a small saucepan. Stand over them while you do this, as they burn easily and you only want them to brown. Toss nuts in pan.
  3. Cube apple. You can leave skin on for colour!
  4. Make up French dressing in a small bowl. Beat until emulsified.
  5. Just before serving, (not earlier or leaves lose their crispiness) place all your ingredients in Salad bowl and toss.
  6. Excellent served with smoked ham!

Mushroom Soup © 🍄🍄🍄

November 18, 2017

What's Cooking In Jane's Kitchen

There is nothing like a warm and nourishing soup and as the colder days approach, this is a very good recipe to try.

For those that are mushroom experts, the season is from September to the end of October, but your regular cultivated “Button Mushrooms,” are available all year round. If you know your mushrooms, the ones gathered from the forest are by far the best! But beware, know your mushrooms!

This recipe was given to me by a dear Romanian friend, who was an excellent cook and I liked it because instead of making the usual base of butter flour and stock, instead she uses brown bread crumbs and this gives a much lighter end result.

* Notes for my cooking students:

Soups fall into two categories, thin consommés and broths and thick puréed and cream soups. The latter are thickened, either by puréeing the ingredients, or by starting…

Cream Of Broccoli Soup ©

November 16, 2017

What's Cooking In Jane's Kitchen

The broccoli season is here and what nicer, than a warming broccoli soup!

Cream Of Broccoli Soup ©

Easy

Four persons

Preparation Time: 20 mins

Cooking Time : 1/2 hr

Ingredients

1 large head of broccoli ( 1/2 kilo ) crisp and dark green ( not yellowing )!

1 medium onion peeled and diced

50 grams butter

1 -1.5 litres of home made chicken or beef stock

A dash of cream (Optional )

Freshly ground black pepper

Method

  1. Choose a nice crisp, dark green head of broccoli. If it is soft or at all yellowing, it is not fresh. It will also yellow if you keep it in the fridge for more than a day, so it is best to use it straight away.
  2. Place broccoli in a large bowl of salted water for five minutes and if picked straight from your garden, inspect it carefully for any caterpillars!
  3. Trim stalk and cut up into…

Mango Salsa ©

November 5, 2017

What's Cooking In Jane's Kitchen

Now that we have a little Mango fever going here, here is another unusual recipe which is also delicious!

It goes well with hot curries and wraps, it is ultimately sweet!

I’ve had fun photographing this one, using colored backgrounds to some of the photos, pretty cool hey?

I am planning on developing this idea further……

Easy

4 persons

Ingredients

1 ripe Mango

1 small onion finely diced

1 fresh chili, finely sliced seeds removed

2 tbs chopped fresh coriander

Juice of 1 lime and finely grated zest

salt pepper freshly ground

Slices of lime to garnish

Method

1. Wash and cut open your mango. To do this hold the mango in front of you long ways, i.e. stalk end nearest to you. It is from one end to the other that the thin seed lies, about 1 cm in thickness. Make two long ways cuts, leaving a 1 cm…
