Red Prawn and Pineapple Curry

Hearing or seeing the word pineapple always makes me think of party and sunshine, don’t ask me why! This dish was meant to be made with the mango fruit, but for some reason our delivery of mango’s went wrong. Lucky enough we had plenty supply of pineapple. The curry was deliciously spicy and sweet. My…

Praised Chicken

Great Nigella Lawson recipe! Love it. After a rather large and heavy lunch yesterday we needed something light and comforting together. For the big eaters we served the soup with rice, for the conscious one with a cheeky little piece of bread & butter. It probably won’t surprise you when I tell you that some…

Baked potato with rapid ragu & green bean salad

This rapid ragu is a Nigella Lawson recipe, the baked potato was my own idea to add. Together with the cold bean salad and almond shavings, this dish became more of an early dinner. ๐Ÿ˜‰ย  -Enjoy- PS: I did make a vegetarian version as well. Just leave the pancetta and lamb out. The caramelized onions…

Pea, mint and feta smash

So easy to prepare and the result is stunning. A favorite under the BUX colleagues as some people asked for the recipe straight after lunch. Tip: When you get the peas out of the freezer put them in a sieve and rinse with hot water until the peas are thawed. Squeeze them first in your…

Chicken Teriyaki

We are so lucky with our food supplier “de Kweker“, the chicken thigh fillets were superb again today. The meat was so tender. I am sure that the marinate made it deliciously soft as well, but you do need good quality chicken for this recipe. Make sure you let the liquid boil down to a…

Broccoli, Cauliflower and Stilton Soup

The original ingredients of this recipe consist of mainly broccoli and Stilton. Just because our grocery supplier didn’t have enough broccoli in stock, we opted for cauliflower. Also, we changed the dried thyme for dried Italian herbs, which worked out really well. This soup is quite filling, but absolutely gorgeous. It’s great to add this…

Lamb & chickpea curry

We had a ball today in the BUX kitchen. Everybody was guessing what the chef was preparing for lunch. One said “chicken”, the other figured “kebab”. I heard many suggestions, but none of them were right. aha! This Lamb curry came for some as a surprise, but it was delicious. We did serve the dish…
