Hi 'mites, for a different flavour, if you love seafood... please check below

Grilled Shrimp on Rosemary Skewers
Ingredients
• About half lb of raw Prawns, peeled
• 1 /4 cup olive oil
• 1/4 cup white wine
• 4 garlic cloves very thinly sliced
• Sea salt
• Lemon wedges
• Bread to serve
Preparation
Fire your oven until hot. This dish can be cooked in a
range of oven temperatures, from very hot to moderately hot.
If your oven is less hot,
you can use more coals.

Marinate whole shrimp with the shell on in olive oil, white
wine, garlic, and lemon. For a change of pace, pick six
fresh rosemary branches, strip off the leaves and use
them for the skewers!
Place the shrimp on a preheated grid, set over hot
coals.

The shrimp can be cooked while the main meal is
finishing up. With the heat from the dome (if you use a Cobb or Weber) and the heat
from the coals under the grill, you might not have to even
turn the shrimp.

Broccoli and Feta soup

This is more the method than a recipe, I was not given exact quantities, but it works out well in the end.

1 Punnet of broccoli, cooked and drained
While the broccoli is cooking, in another pot cook onion, carrot, celery and/or yellow pepper in enough water to cover it. Do not drain.

Combine the broccoli, the contents of the other pan, and about 500 ml chicken or veg stock and whizz the lot with a stick blender.

Adjust your seasoning, remembering that bought stock will be salted, and add about half a teaspoon of both ground cumin and ground coriander. Add the cumin carefully, it can be quite strong.

Re-heat and add 100g to 150g chopped or crumbled feta cheese.

Leftovers freeze well although the feta tends to disintegrate, which does not affect the taste.

Enjoy !!!

This is the first time that I have shared a recipe here, so hope you enjoy them.

Bran Muffins
So easy and has a GI of 58 for those that are interested
Makes 24 muffins. I use the standard muffin pan.
Note: This batter has to stand overnight.


2 eggs
250ml (1 cup) soft brown sugar
60 ml (1/4 cup) oil
250ml (1 cup) oat bran pressed down into cup (Jungle)
375ml (1 1/2 cup) flour, sifted before measuring
500ml (2 cup) digestive bran
2ml (1/2 t) salt
15ml ( 1 T) Bicarb
5ml (1 t) ground cinnamon
1 large apple peeled and grated
250ml (1 cup) sultanas - raisins can be used, but sultanas have a lower GI, for those that need it.
500ml (2 cup) milk or low fat plain yoghurt
5ml (1 t) vanilla essence

Beat together eggs, sugar and oil.
Add all the dry ingredients, the grated apple and the sultanas.
Add milk and vanilla (or yoghurt, depending on what you have decided to use)
Stir until well blended and store in fridge overnight, covering the bowl with Glad Wrap
Stir and drop into muffin pan, filling 3/4 and bake at 180 degrees C for 15-20 minutes.

Mix can be kept in the fridge for 30 days and used when needed
Muffins freeze well, but do not freeze the batter.

I sometimes add 2 lightly mashed bananas, but find I need to add an additional 5 minutes to the cooking time. Chopped Walnuts are also nice added to the batter.
Gorgeous with grated cheese or apricot jam

Crust less Spinach/Egg Quiche

2 cups of spinach..cooked with diced potato and chopped onion..drain mixture thoroughly...get rid of all the water....mashed with dollop of butter;add 3 cups of grated cheddar cheese
IN a mixing bowl,Beat 5 eggs until slightly frothy
Add salt,pepper to taste...I use Ina Paarman Veg Spice or Herbamare
Fold egg mixture into the spinach and cheese mixture..blend in evenly
Spoon mixture into lightly greased quiche dish..sprinkle with grated cheddar cheese and chili and garlic flakes (again my choice is Ina Paarman)
Bake in oven of 180* for about 7-9 minutes or until egg is set.
