One of my favourite go-to weekday home cooked meals has got to be a fresh basil pesto sauce. It’s quick, easy and absolutely delicious! You just cannot compare a freshly made sauce, to even the best jared store bought variety. It took me 16 years before my world was brightened by trying the freshly made good stuff and I haven’t looked back ever since.
Making pasta from scratch is easy and well worth the effort! I use 100 grams of 00 flour, to 20 grams of semolina flour, to one organic fresh egg. If you want to make more, than multiply all ingredients proportionally, for this recipe I used e.g. 300 grams 00 Flour, 60 grams semolina flour, x3 eggs. I also add a little splash of white wine, dash of water, dribble of virgin olive oil and a pinch of salt.
Having indulged heavily in the spirit of all things Christmas, we decided we needed a lighter dinner to balance out some of our gluttony. Whilst this smoked salmon and asparagus salad recipe screams all things healthy, it packs a strong flavour punch with both the lemony citrus notes and robust dijon mustard, working together to elevate the taste sensation. The delicate dill complements the salmon with a soft sweetness, and the capers add a subtle natural salty and tangy depth to some of the bites.
No one said healthy needed to be boring. Here is one of the most simple, easy salad recipes that takes only 15 minutes start to finish.
