When you go to a Greek restaurant, which are your to go meals? I usually try to taste different foods as much as possible, but if I should pick my favourites, it would definitely be Moussaka, grilled octopus and last but not least Gyros. Chicken lamb or beef, give me all. Preferably as the whole set with some flat bread and Tzatziki too.
Anyway, by now you could probably notice that I am all about creating healhier (paleo-ish) versions of my favourite dishes. That’s why I decided to make a Chicken Gyros With Tzatziki at home as well. And I didn’t even miss on the bread. To draw in the detail I used Coconut Flour Savory Pancakes as the base for all the goodness which I am going to share with you below.
This easy recipe for Cauliflower Fried Rice is perfect for those who love the Asian cuisine but are watching the carbs a little bit. Or for people who are keen about the daily veggie intake. Or simply for those who want to try something different and eat healthy. It’s a great side dish but you can definitely have it by itself as a small meal too.
I always loved to try new meals and ingredients when possible. But it wasn’t so easy at all the times. Just so you know, I am from a small Czech town with 7000 residents, where the new is not accepted so easily sometimes. Just for example, apart from Czech restaurants, we have one Chinese restaurant and few pizza places in my hometown. And that’s as far as the curiosity of new things can get. I believe that these days it might be better and the young people are more open to the new flavours. But it will probably still take some time before the food mentality changes here.
I love cooking with minced meat. There is so many possibilities how to turn it into delicious meals. Like in the Shepherd’s Pie With Swede. Or the Eggplant Lasagna Bolognese. Or like in these Ginger Pork Meatballs. My favourite meatballs of all the time.
It’s still such warm weather here in Australia which for me means lots of BBQ and lighter meals. That’s why I made the Sticky Ginger Chicken Wings yesterday (we were so hungry that I just wasn’t able to make pictures, but I will be definitely making the wings soon again) and this Asian Style Coleslaw on a side. At least the salad is served cold so I could snap a couple pics before dinner.
I had never tried Shepherd’s pie before I went to Canada few years ago. I hadn’t even heard of it. Wait what? Yeah, sounds unbelievable. I know.
But as I just love to try everything new it didn’t take long and I found this fixed star of western cuisine. And totally fell in love with it. With the beautiful simplicity surprisingly combined with lots of flavor. And primarily because I am the biggest fan of fast savory meals and this one just combines it all.
