Very Easy Cheat’s Bruschetta

I love this recipe because it tastes good and takes minimum effort to make! I found this recipe in the Woolworths Fresh Magazine and it’s so, so, so good! The following method is how I make mine.

Ingredients:

1 packet of La Famiglia 9-slice Garlic Slices (You can probably make your own garlic slices if you can’t find this brand)

3-4 Roma tomatoes, diced

1 red onion, diced

A few leaves of basil, chopped

1 Tbs Olive oil

Salt and Pepper to season

Method:

1. Dice tomatoes and onion. Chop the basil.

2. Heat the garlic slices in the grill until brown or cooked to your liking.

3. Turn the garlic slices over and heat the underside until lightly toasted. Remove from grill onto a plate.

4. Combine the tomatoes, onion, basil, oil, salt and pepper in a bowl and stir well. (I used a white onion here because I ran out of red).

5. Spoon tomato mixture onto the slices and serve!

6. Eat! Yum!

Food for the Soul: Hainanese Chicken Rice

“There is no love sincerer than the love of food.” – George Bernard Shaw
Hainanese Chicken Rice always makes me think of my mother and of the time we went to Thailand. We were lucky enough to stay in this crazy awesome five story house. Five. Story. House. Right in the heart of Bangkok, and from the moment you step outside you’re immediately submerged in culture and the amazing smell of street food. Luckily for me the Hainanese Chicken and warm fresh Soybean drink carts were perfectly positioned right outside of our front gate and that is all I ate for the entire time I stayed in Bangkok.
This is how I cook it at home. It’s not the traditional method but it’s super easy and super YUMMI!
Ingredients
1x Whole Free Range Chicken
2x 375ml Campbell’s Chicken Stock
1 1/2 tsp Sea Salt
1 tbs Sunflower Oil
1 Sliced Onion
80g  Peeled and Sliced Fresh Ginger
2 Peeled Garlic Cloves
3 Coriander – Remove leaves and set aside. Keep the roots and stalks.
2 Peeled Carrots
1 Sliced Cucumber
4 Cups of Rice – You’ll also need a rice cooker for this one.
Serve on the Side
a) Kikkoman Soy Sauce
b) Chilli Sauce – Sriracha (hot Thai chilli sauce), Garlic, Ginger, Fresh Lime Juice, Sugar and Salt. Put it all into a bender and bend the shit out of it. Loosen the mix up with a bit of chicken stock if you need to. Taste is up to you.
Method
1. Rub 1 tsp of sea salt all over the chicken and rinse. Set aside.
2. In a large pot heat Sunflower Oil.
3. Add onion, ginger and garlic and saute till the onion is fragrant and soft. Don’t burn!
4. Add chicken stock, 1/2 tsp salt, coriander roots/stalks and chicken to the pot. Bring to the boil. Turn heat down to medium and simmer for 45 minutes.
5. Remove the chicken from the pot and into a separate bowl and set aside.
6. Rinse starch out the rice until it runs clear. Add the chicken stock to the rice and press the button!
7. Chop up the chicken and serve it up with rice, cucumber, coriander leaves with two little sauce dishes on the side.
8. Eat.
