We are fast approaching the festive season with Christmas parties and family get togethers with friends a given. All of these meals for this week can promote this through cooking together or eating together. Meal times offer room for creativity and personal direction so be sure to add, change and even invent new ideas!
Keeping everyone full and happy at meal times will be easier with our simple rice recipes. Using leftovers from the week makes our fried rice recipe even more yummy and affordable. Meat is optional, feel free to mix and match your favourite vegetables.
This week Foodbank received a large delivery of green and red bell peppers, yellow jalapeños peppers, garlic, tomato and capsicum, ingredients that are all commonly used in exotic cuisines. This inspired us to cook up some of our favourite family meals, Chilli Con Carne, a dish originating from Texas, USA, and a Mediterranean Pasta, inspired by the flavours of Spain- fresh and fiery!
