Kimchi

Did you know that Kimchi contains the same probiotic as found in yoghurt and other fermented foods? The same probiotic that is good for good gut health. I had recently completed an antibiotic cocktail to eradicate the H. Pylori bacteria that was found during an endoscopy. My gastroenterologist was very happy with the 99% result. I have been pleasantly surprised at finding out that many fermented … Continue reading Kimchi

Duck Breast with Cherry Liqueur Sauce

We have recently faced a supply issue on fresh chicken, being solely dependent on imports and the trading relationships with many countries. Having to do without fresh chicken means you have to opt for other sources of poultry and protein. Fortunately, duck, although considered a red meat is still available. Chancing upon some Smoked Duck Breast already seasoned with black pepper, meant trying the ‘Reverse … Continue reading Duck Breast with Cherry Liqueur Sauce

Bailey’s Biscoff Ice-cream

A simple decadent 3-ingredient ice-cream. You can play around with increasing more Bailey’s Irish Cream or Biscoff spread or biscuits. In this recipe, I used the Biscoff spread as well as the biscuits for a nice crunch and I could probably add more of the spread for a richer, sweeter tastier dessert.

It is also an ingredient used in the making of hummus. I have added sugar and … Continue reading Tahini

Vegan (Eggless) Banana Loaf

This was made fairly recently unlike some of my other recipes that have yet to be written up. This loaf turned out more sponge-like than the GFDF version. Perhaps due to the combination of baking soda, flaxmeal & chia seeds. This combination was easier on me than a previous successful attempt using chia seeds as an egg replacer. Do remember that too much has it’s side … Continue reading Vegan (Eggless) Banana Loaf
