This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Hi All!

So how am I doing with my Food from the World for the World?

February was a short month but I managed to take you to a few new places! First stop was Zimbabwe for a delicious, cheap and easy Inspired by Zimbabwe: Tomato Chicken Stew with Peanut Butter Rice

Next stop Mozambique for a rich chocolate dessert just in time for Valentines…Inspired by Mozambique, gluten-free, rich Dark Chocolate, Cashew Nut and Sweet Potato Mousse.

From Mozambique we made a visit to Yemen for Inspired by Yemen – Scrambled Eggs with Green Beans and Hot Spiced Yogurt, Served with Clove and Cardamon Black Tea, giving new flavours to an all time comfort food, also timely linked with Save The Childrens’ current campaign, Pens for Peace in Yemen. For more details please visit the link: https://www.savethechildren.org.uk/where-we-work/middle-east/yemen

As some of you were feeling the spring like weather early this year, for our last stop in February, I decided to take us somewhere to try something a bit lighter, so we went to Haiti… twice! Once for Inspired by Haiti – Crab and Sweet Potato Fritters and a last little February treat of mock ice cream! Inspired by Haiti – Banana and Mango Mock Ice Cream with Dark Chocolate and Cashew Nut Shards

So where will March take us? Come back on Monday to find out…and in the meantime I would love to have your feedback on the recipes created by Feastforfamine so far, and please feel free to share your recipes too!

January Recipes Review: From the Ukraine to Indonesia…

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Hi All!

So how am I doing with my Food from the World for the World?

In January, I took you too…the Ukraine with my Beetroot Soup with Shredded Chicken, Garlic Breadcrumbs and Dill infused Yogurt, https://wp.me/pahvtD-1S hoping to start the year off with something healthy and comforting.

Next stop…Bangladesh for my Carrot Bhajis with Raita, https://wp.me/pahvtD-1n (also included extra recipes for homemade Lime Pickle and Spicy Tomato Chutney), and even showed you another recipe to use up the chutney, the Spicy Oven Cooked Aubergines https://wp.me/pahvtD-3Q with my Bangladeshi Inspired Spicy Tomato Chutney!

From Bangladesh we made a visit to Nigeria for my Peanut Butter, Coconut and Banana Chip Crumbly Cookies, https://wp.me/pahvtD-21 which got me to thinking about other store cupboard favourites, and decided to experiment… the results of which were the Super Easy Gluten Free Nutella cookies https://wp.me/pahvtD-3Y which went down a treat in my household…

Last stop in January was my favourite, Inspired by Indonesia – Slow Cooked Beef Noodles, with Spinach, Fried Egg and Peanut Sambal, https://wp.me/pahvtD-3Z using cheap cuts of meat to create something that really wakes up your taste buds as well as providing a bit of heat on a cold January day.

So where will February take us? Come back on Monday to find out…and in the meantime I would love to have your feedback on the recipes created by Feastforfamine so far!

Ingredients: 200g peanut butter (smooth or crunchy), 1 large egg, 60g brown sugar, 50g natural peanuts, 30g dried banana chips, 20g desiccated coconut (unsweetened)

Method:

  1. Preheat the oven 160 (fan), line a baking tray with parchment paper
  2. Mix all your dry ingredients into the peanut butter
  3. Add your egg and mix really well
  4. Now using a teaspoon make 12 rounded shapes on your parchment paper, leaving some space in between each one as the mixture will spread
  5. Now bake for 10mins, remove from the oven and allow to cool completely before transferring onto a plate to eat straight away or an airtight container…yum!
One of the main problems facing children in Nigeria is the availability of nutritious food in order to help them grow and develop. There is also a lack of immunisation, and general health care needed to support mothers, their new born babies and young children, to find out what Save The Children are doing to help, please visit the link: https://www.savethechildren.org.uk/where-we-work/africa/Nigeria
