Funky Veggies

Another feisty veggies recipe that just makes me happy! As my recipe collection grows and the more I experiment in the kitchen, the more I realize how versatile vegetables can be. 

These 5 ingredient Mexican sweet corn cookies are just perfect!

For this recipe I’ve used corn flour, so these delicious little treats are also great for gluten free eaters. Delicious with white cheese such as feta crumbled over. Yes, more please!

Grilled Figs with Goat Cheese and Honey

Grilled Figs goat cheese honey

Sometimes it’s the most simple recipe that really shines. The sweetness of grilled figs stuffed with creamy goat cheese. A match made in heaven!

Serve while the figs are still warm, as an impressive first course. Add some watercress or arugula to make a lovely salad. Or replace the goat cheese with ricotta or yogurt for a luscious dessert. If you like a twist, you can also replace the honey with balsamic glaze (In a small saucepan simmer one cup balsamic vinegar and 2 tbsp honey over medium heat, 10 to 15 minutes, until reduced by half and balsamic is thick and syrupy).

All there is to them is cutting a pocket in some figs, stuffing them with goat cheese, add a crunchy walnut, grilling until softened and then finish with a drizzle of honey. Absolutely delectable!
