The salmon patty turned into a loaf. Yes, this is indeed my fresh salmon patty recipe. Same great taste, in less time. I didn’t use canned salmon like most salmon loaf recipes out there. I chopped up two lovely, fresh salmon fillets and mixed them with mashed sweet potato and aromatic herbs like dill and parsley. I served it with lemon wedges but I am assuming a lovely lemony, yogurt based sauce would do it justice too. Continue reading
Clearly in a patty mood.
I’ve been meaning to give these a try for quite some time now and I’m glad I finally did. I wanted to create a patty packed with fresh salmon, not canned. They turned out so amazing, I now want to make them at least once a week. I added mashed sweet potato, dill, parsley, capers and plenty of aromatic lemon zest. The best part is, they are grilled, not pan-fried. Stuff them in a pita with tzatziki or stick them in a bun and top them with coleslaw or serve them plain with a bright green salad and a squeeze of lemon. This is a keeper. Continue reading
It all started when the master of all foods, Yotam Ottolenghi, posted on Instagram a photo of the most amazing sweet potato and peanut patties. #testkitchen read the caption, which meant no recipe just yet.

The thing I love about bulgur wheat is that as it cooks, it absorbs flavour, better than any other grain I know. Rice is great too, but bulgur wheat is nutty and tastes great eaten hot, at room temperature, or even straight out of the fridge. My passion for sweet potatoes urged me to cook these two together. The result is a colourful, flavourful vegetarian pilaf packed with goodness and taste. Continue reading
Like Mexican fajitas but with a Mediterranean twist. I used aromatic spices to season the sweet potato wedges, like cumin, paprika and coriander and they came out amazing! Roasting instead of sautéing is always a better idea, so I threw the potatoes in the oven for 25 minutes. That’s it! You will make the salad and whipped feta, as they bake and you will enjoy a delicious, bursting with flavour, healthy vegetarian wrap in less than an hour. Continue reading
Yet another obsession. Sweet potatoes. One wintery and cold Sunday we were invited to a friend’s house for lunch. The lady of the house, who happens to be an excellent cook, prepared some roasted, very aromatic, sweet potato wedges as an appetiser. It was love at first bite. I have been roasting them on a weekly basis ever since. Continue reading
