We have a guest in our kitchen today! Carole of The Yum Yum Factor is sharing the recipe to her favourite appetizer with us!
This is my new favourite appetizer, although I have been known to make it my dinner from time to time as well. You may be unfamiliar with the Maras and Black Kurdish chilis, but you can order the Turkish chili flakes online if you can’t find them in the store. They are absolutely worth the eﬀort because they both give a wonderful, earthy, slightly smoky flavour with a subtle hint of heat and are the bomb when used to season mushrooms. I also find switching out the chickpeas with white beans results in a lighter, less grainy dip with a more neutral flavour, so that these mushrooms can really shine. Scoop it all up with plenty of pita, baguette or sourdough and it’s up to you whether you use pumpkin seeds or the more expensive pine nut, but just make sure you use one of them because the crunch they provide is needed to balance out the smoothness of the bean dip.

As a kid you couldn’t get me to eat a mushroom. I mean in school they tell you it is a fungus and then well, that was game over for me. It wasn’t until I was at my friend’s home for dinner and their parents served mushrooms in a pasta dish and my mother’s rule “eat what is put in front of you” rang in my head. So down the hatch that mushroom went and I have been a fan ever since. I love the subtle woody and earthy flavour and meaty texture of mushrooms and now add them into my recipes whenever I can.
We have guests in the Kitchen! Loreto & Nicoletta of SugarLoveSpices are sharing their simply divine recipe for a mushroom and lobster risotto!
This dish is a luxurious plate full of flavour, texture, and aroma. Your first spoonful will reveal this creamy rice with hints of tomato and white wine, rounded with the plump earthy flavour of mushroom, alongside sweet onion and garlic. We cannot forget those juicy tender pieces of lobster that tell your taste buds THIS IS IT!
We have a guest in our kitchen today!! Heather from Beerx is here, and she has an exciting gnocchi recipe to share!
Sweet potatoes, beets and potatoes have regularly been the vegetable of choice in common gnocchi dough. I decided it was time for mushrooms to shine. Roasted with garlic and butter then pureed smooth these little dumplings are light as a feather and have incredible earthy flavours, perfect for any sauce especially this smoked gorgonzola cream sauce.
The most time spent on this recipe is shaping the pasta, however it is really simple to do and little ones can enjoy helping out.
