  • 1/4 cup flour (31.75 grams)
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • pepper to taste
  • 1 tablespoon oil 

Method 

Pre-heat oven to 350° (180° celsius) line a cookie sheet with parchment paper, oil very lightly.

Wash, peel and grate vegetables, squeeze out excess moisture and place in a medium bowl. Add parsley, flour, egg, salt and pepper and mix gently to combine.

Homemade bbq sauce

Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 400g can chopped tomatoes
  • 3 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 85g brown sugar
  • 3 tbsp malt vinegar
  • 2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tbsp tomato purée

Method

Heat oil in a saucepan and add the onion. Cook over a gentle heat 4-5 mins, until softened. Add the remaining ingredients, season and mix. Bring to the boil, then reduce heat and simmer for 20-30 mins, until thickened. For a smooth sauce, simply whizz the mixture in a food processor or with a hand blender for a few seconds.

Potato wedges (serves 4)

Ingredients

  • 4 medium potatoes 
  • 1 Tbsp (15 mL) vegetable oil 
  • ¾ tsp paprika powder 
  • ½ tsp onion powder 
  • ½ tsp garlic powder (optional)
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 pinch ground black pepper

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C). Cut the potatoes in half lengthwise, then cut into wedges about ½ inch (1 cm) thick.

Transfer the potatoes to a large bowl. Drizzle with the oil, paprika, onion powder, garlic powder, salt, and pepper and mix to coat.

Spread the potatoes out in a single layer, ideally over two lined baking trays. Try to not overcrowd the tray, as this won’t allow the potatoes to crispen up sufficiently in the oven.

Bake in the centre rack of the oven for 25 – 35 minutes, or until golden, stopping to give the potatoes a flip once halfway.

Serve with your favourite dip(s). Enjoy!

Baked apple

Ingredients

• 4 large good baking apples, such as Rome Beauty, Golden Delicious, or Jonagold

• 1/4 cup brown sugar

• 1 teaspoon cinnamon

• 1/4 cup chopped pecans, optional

• 1/4 cup currants or chopped raisins

• 1 tablespoon butter

• 3/4 cup boiling water

Method

Bake until tender:

Pour the boiling water into the bottom of the baking dish. Bake at 375°F (190°C) for 30 to 45 minutes,

until the apples are cooked through and tender, but not overcooked and mushy. When done, remove the apples from the oven and baste them with the juices from the pan.
