Lunch is very important, and often neglected, but we want to make sure you’re having the best meal at this time. So we created a post with 6 recipes that are perfect for lunch no matter what your day looks like. Of all the recipes we posted, Phillippa Cheifitz’s oven-toasted ham and cheese sandwiches were the most popular, and we can see why. Cheese toasties are a classic and this version has prosciutto crudo, mayo and Dijon mustard – yum!
Nostalgic, easy to make and delicious, Rice Krispie treats are the ideal recipe to make with the kids during school holidays. Many of you agreed! This recipe by Zorah Booley takes things up a notch by adding chocolate ganache into the mix.
We took two iconic South African foods and combined them to make this zinger of a recipe. Food stylist, Jacqueline Burgess created three flavours for these jaffles: a South African-inspired, an Italian-inspired jaffle and a Tex-Mex-inspired jaffle. All you have to do is decide which one to make first.
Carbs on carbs – it doesn’t get more comforting than that! These cheesy potato toasts are the brainchild of the deputy food editor, Khanya Mzongwana. Inspired by skordalia, this potato toast features garlic, walnuts and dill and is packed with flavour. This version is made with dairy-free cheese, but you can make it with regular cheese too.
This is another Khanya Mzongwana creation that you couldn’t get enough of. A triple-decker sandwhich filled with cheese, bacon, avo, egg and vegetable atchar – it may be the most epic braaibroodjie ever created!
Diwali was on the 24th of October, so it’s not surprising that this iconic Indian sweet treat was one of the most popular recipes this month. Chana magaj is often present at Diwali celebrations along with a myriad of other sweetmeats. More Diwali treats up ahead!
Soji balls are another popular Diwali treat and are one of the simplest sweetmeats to make. This is baker, blogger, and food photographer, Landi Govender’s take on the classic treat.
This recipe was featured on the back page of the September/October issue of TASTE and we received many messages asking us for the recipe before it was published. When it finally dropped this month, it was an instant hit. Made with Woolies’ readymade pumpkin and sweet potato mash – and smothered in caramel sauce – it’s the ultimate tray bake.
Burfi is arguably the most popular Diwali sweetmeat, so it is no surprise that this shot up this most popular recipe list. Award-winning freelance food and travel journalist, Ishay Govender gave this classic treat a modern twist by making a panna cotta version, and it’s spectacular.
A versatile chocolate dessert than can be made with all of your favourite sweet treats? Yes, please! Food director Abigail Donnelly’s chocolate jumble pudding is quite possibly the easiest dessert you’ll ever make. The secret’s in that coconut caramel sauce, which brings it all together.
