What’s for dinner?

I love cooking, i don’t like being told what to do. Hence i don’t like recipes, or is it the other way around?

I cook everything to my taste, so please by all means do the same. This will act as a guide to making similar but the best for you and your family food.

Homemade pie
Rustic

I promised my husband a ‘pie’, I know what you’re thinking but I’m making lamb pie. And lamb is my favourite meat. This is warm, rustic and filling meal.

I use margarine instead of butter, gives the flavor without the burden on the hips.

Homemade Lamb pie

Ingredients:

– Lamb leg( no bones)- as much as will be enough for your family.

– Veggies- mushrooms(chopped vertically), carrots, red and orange peppers, onions- all roughly chopped

– Liquids-coconut milk-25ml.              chicken stock- 25ml

– Margarine -1tbs.                                    Herbs- coriander- 1tbs,

– Spices- homemade masala- 1tsp (nutmeg, chili flakes, cayenne, cinnamon, turmeric, salt, pepper)

– Fresh rocket and sliced horse reddish for serving.

– Egg -x1 and Puff pastry

The Filling:

–  add margarine into pot, brown onions then add the rest of the veggies(leaving out carrots). Add lamb and brown a bit, then the masala and chicken stock.

– After 10 min- add coconut milk, carrots and coriander. Take off stove after 5 min

The Pastry:

– Preheat oven at 230 degrees

– roll out puff pastry on floured surface until thin. Margarine the pie pots/ mini casserole dishes. Layer pastry over and add your filling. Close the pastry over the filling gently.  Then brush over top of pastry with beaten egg.  Bake in oven for 40-50 min( if using smaller pots bake for 30-40 min).

– cool and serve with rocket and horse reddish. And Enjoy!

This is always a hit with my family, hope it becomes a hit with yours.

I'm a medical doctor by profession, passionate about infectious disease, primary health care and public health. I live food, from thinking about it, cooking it to eating it. Health and Nutrition fanatic. I live by a few chants...: 1. Before I do anything whether related to food or not, I ask myself ' Is it worth the calories?' Whether literally or figuratively( i.e. Is the decision worth the stress, effort, investment) 2. What you put in must come out! If you don't let it out, it settles on your tummy and hips. 3. 'Everything happens for a reason'. I try reflect on situations I find myself in, whether by choice or not. And look for Lessons I'm meant to learn from them, in order to grow.
