Our children love dipping veggie sticks into houmous so I love making fresh houmous for them as I find the shop bought ones are very salty and houmous is so quick and easy to make. Simply pop all ingredients into a blender, blitz and voila...healthy homemade and tastier houmous in two minutes.
As a family (of boys), we eat a lot of meat and tend to eat meat every day but every now and then I like to cook a good veggie dish (perhaps with some grilled lamb chops or chicken wings on the side for my meat eater husband). This dish is really good to introduce young children to 'hot' food...
We love making muffins as a snack for the kids and it's also great as it's so easy to make so total fun to get little ones involved in the baking too. Perfect as a morning or afternoon snack and on the go.
This dish was inspired by my brother in law who came back from a business trip to Tel Aviv with a number of bags of spices that as soon as you walked into their house, you could imagine what the souk markets would smell like with the aromas of the herbs and spices.
This particular dish is super lean and 100% pork meat. I made these meatballs using a piece of pork fillet that I had in my fridge and turned it into minced meat by chopping and bashing the meat using a cleaver until it was as minced-like texture as possible. Of course, using a packet of ready minced meat will be just as good. This meatballs recipe works with any kind of meat.
