Here's to the weekend and nice, leisurely meals with the ones we love. With everything from sweet to savoury, we've got all the recipes you need to get the party started. The only thing you need to ask is, "wanna do brunch?"
When you’re in need of a quick meal, a creamy carbonara comes together in just a little more time than it takes the pasta to cook. It's a humble sauce of starchy pasta water, eggs and Parm whisked into silky submission. And, chances are, you already have the ingredients in your kitchen. We have peas in our ingredient list, but if there's a greens strike in your home, feel free to forgo them. Carbonara is easy like that.
There's something special about a family working together in the kitchen. You can make amazing homemade creations, you just need a bit of time. These recipe projects range from easy to a bit more challenging, but they're all worth the work. Especially when it comes time to eat.
These vegetarian burritos can be served as soon as they’re filled and rolled, or can be crisped up in a hot pan, which allows you to assemble them in advance and then heat them through just before serving.
Got a kid who turns their nose up at foods they've previously loved? You're not alone. When veggies meet resistance, this hearty, delicious and lowkey sneaky sauce steps in with nary a speck of veg texture (grosssss). Consider it your Trojan horse packed full of nutrients from the likes of roasted zucchini, onion, bell pepper and carrot. It’s incredibly nutritious, unique-tasting, thick, rich, and luxuriously smooth, perfect for even the most discerning of family members. If you're not in the mood for pasta (can't relate), this sauce works beautifully as a tomato soup. Simply heat it up after blending and season to taste. Serve with fresh bread for dipping or crumbled crackers on top.
This dish of stewed beans (ewa riro) is delicious and filling. Make sure the beans are cooked until they are very tender and be generous with the palm oil, which lends the dish an earthy flavor and reddish color. Serve with fried ripe plantains (dodo) and rice.
