January Recipes Review: From the Ukraine to Indonesia…

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!

Thanks

Well here is a really simple way to use it…

Prep: 5 mins
Cook: 55 mins (plus absorption time)

Serves 2 as a main 4 as a starter

Ingredients: 1 large Aubergine, 2 tbsp of olive oil

Method

  1. Cut your aubergine into medium slices (no more than 1/2 inch)
  2. Put on a plate and cover with kitchen towel and place a weight on top, like another plate, leave for 1-2 hours, allowing the paper towel to absorb the moisture
  3. Pre-heat your oven to 180(F), Gas mark 5
  4. Place your aubergine on a baking tray and cover with oil
  5. Bake for 40 minutes turning over half way through
  6. Remove from the oven and drain off any excess oil
  7. Top with the ready made Spicy Tomato Chutney and put back in the oven for 15 minutes
  8. Enjoy!

Goes well with rice for a more substantial dish.

In Bangladesh, children are at risks from many factors from the moment they are born, as well living in a country impacted by natural disasters, they are also exposed to threatening childhood diseases, as well as being subjected to exploitation, abuse and early marriage as they grow, to find out more about these children and what Save The Children are doing to help, please click on the following link: https://www.savethechildren.org.uk/where-we-work/asia/bangladesh
