I just created this one tonight. I was looking for the caraway seeds, but can’t seem to find them. Sesame seeds are nice, but nothing like the same thing… and I’m not ALL that sure about the nutmeg. It tastes good, but not quite the flavour I was after.
About 2 cups diced butternut pumpkin
120g green beans, cut into 2cm lengths
1 tsp olive oil
1 tbs chopped coriander leaves
½ tsp ground cumin
½ tsp sesame seeds
Shake of nutmeg
Steam or microwave the pumpkin and beans till tender, drain and place in a large bowl with the coriander leaves. Pour the olive oil over, add cumin and sesame seeds and stir through gently. Add a shake of nutmeg to taste, plus salt and freshly ground black pepper.
I was looking for ways to get more beans into my diet, and found this recipe in Table magazine. I modified it just a little.
500g heart-smart beef mince
420g can of 4-bean mix, drained then pureed in a food processor
1 small onion, finely chopped
1 garlic clove, chopped or crushed
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp ground coriander
1/4 cup chopped coriander leaves
1 tbs olive oil
Heat the oil in a non-stick pan, cook onion for 3 minutes, stirring, until soft. Add the garlic and spices and cook a further 2 minutes, then set aside to cool. Mix all ingredients in a large bowl, using wet hands to shape into 8-12 patties.
Rinse and dry pan, spray with cooking spray and heat. Cook patties in batches for 3 minutes each side or until browned and cooked through.
