I have finally put together somewhere to post the recipes that have been requested.
Obviously the first recipe had to be these cookies 🙌…
It will soon be three years since I opened in Nile Lodge.
It’s been an amazing time, lots of lessons learned, lots of friends made and lots to be proud of (I still get excited every time I see my bakes on display in other cafés!) …
Dark chocolate, raspberries… this delectable tart is a beautiful addition to any menu this
#AfternoonTeaWeek and is our #RecipeOfTheDay https://www.pritchitts.com/recipes/raspberry-tartlets …
We’d normally be suggesting a Sunday roast but here’s a healthy, tasty and filling recipe the whole family will love. Not to mention another one of your 5 a day!
Heat olive oil in a large lidded pan over medium heat.
Add the onions, and fry until translucent.
Add the garlic and ginger, and cook for a couple of minutes more, stirring frequently.
Add the garam masala, cumin and cayenne pepper, stir so that the onions .have a nice coating of the spices, cook for just a minute until the spices are a little toasted.
Add the chickpeas and stir well so they are covered in oil and spice.
Add the tomatoes and sugar (if using), give everything a good stir, cover, and simmer for 20 minutes on low-medium heat.
Add the spinach in batches, and stir until the spinach is wilted.
At the end of cooking, add a sprinkling of fresh coriander, and a squeeze of fresh lemon juice if desired.
Serve with rice or naan.
Cook the potatoes in a covered pan of boiling salted water for 15-20 minutes until tender.
Meanwhile, heat a knob of the butter and one tablespoon of water in a heavy-based pan with a lid, over a high heat. When the butter has melted and formed an emulsion, add the scallions and cabbage with a pinch of salt. Cover, shake vigorously and cook over a high heat for 1 minute. Shake the pan again and cook for another minute, then season with pepper.
Drain the potatoes and mash until smooth, then beat in the remaining butter. Fold in the cabbage mixture. Shape the mixture into four balls, dust with flour and press into neat patties.
Heat a thin film of olive oil in a heavy-based frying pan and add the patties, then cook for 3-4 minutes on each side until golden brown.
To make the poached eggs, bring a large pan of water to the boil. Add the vinegar and season with salt and keep at a very gentle simmer. Break the eggs into the water and simmer for 3-4 minutes until just cooked but still soft on the inside. Remove with a slotted spoon and drain well on kitchen paper, trimming away any ragged edges.
To make the hollandaise sauce, place the vinegar and egg yolks in a food processor with a pinch of salt. Blend until just combined.
Gently heat the butter in a heavy-based pan until melted and just beginning to foam. Turn on the food processor and with the motor running at medium speed; pour in the melted butter in a thin, steady stream through the feeder tube. Continue to blitz for another 5 seconds and pour back into the pan but do not return to the heat. Allow the heat from the pan to finish thickening the sauce as you stir it gently for another minute before serving. Season to taste with salt.
To serve, place a colcannon cake on each warmed plate and place a poached egg on top of each one. Spoon over the hollandaise sauce and add a grinding of black pepper.
