Being based out of The Land inspires me to use the freshest ingredients in every meal I eat. This melon had been lying in the kitchen a couple of days, waiting for me to experiment with it, and this is what I came up with! Coupled with a load of parmesan cheese, and farm fresh herbs, this dish is a light delight! Ingredients 1/2 ripe melon, deseeded, peeled and cubed 1 red chilli a handful of fresh basil, chopped 30g butter 30g parmesan cheese – grated or finely chopped 1/2 inch ginger, crushed salt to taste MethodBlend the melon cubes to make a coarse puree…more

TurnipMintPasta

When we were children, we regularly we served fresh pasta and pizza made from scratch at home, and our sauces and toppings often had vegetables like spinach and aubergine in it. We made a face too, just like anyone else – but travelling through Europe made me realise that a lot of pasta and pizza dishes use a variety of vegetables. This dish with aubergine and turnip has punch, bite and flavour. Ingredientspasta of your choice, cooked 1 tomato, diced fine 3-4 cloves garlic 30-50ml extra virgin olive oil 1/2 cup aubergine, diced 1/4 cup turnip, quartered and sliced 1/2 onion roughly chopped 1/4 cup…more

ButterCreamRavioli

This really simple recipe helps me whip up an instant meal with just the basic pantry ingredients that I usually have stocked up in my kitchen. I also baked some fresh bread the day I ate this meal, so it was quite incredible to mop up the sauce off my plate with slices of fresh baguette. Ingredients 1-2 tomatoes, roughly diced 2-3 sprigs fresh oregano 3-4 cloves garlic, crushed and minced 1 red bird chilli salt 1-2 tablespoons butter 3-4 tablespoons fresh cream grated parmesan cheese pasta of your choice (I used fresh ravioli), cooked as per instructions   MethodHeat the butter in a pan.…more

QuickFixRavioli

Back from a week of travel, and the fridge is completely empty. I am way too lazy to step out for a handful of ingredients, but hunger cannot be ignored so I had to step up my game to create something for lunch. Fortunately for Slyly Simple, I had some ravioli in my freezer, and a little of the special Slyly Simple pasta seasoning. However this recipe could work just as well with any other form of pasta, and even simple salt and pepper! Ingredients10-12 pieces of frozen ravioli 30-40ml olive oil 2 tablespoons sundried tomatoes, chopped 5-6 leaves of dried, crispy sage 2 tablespoons…more

RidgeGourdPasta

Local Indian vegetables tend to make us think of the regular curries, gravies and masalas we have always associated them with. I rarely end up stocking these vegetables in my fridge, simply because i love experimenting with fusion flavours and I never thought of trying that out with the likes of a ridged gourd! This experiment in my kitchen surprised me, as it probably will surprise anyone who reads it, but I can now promise to come up with many more similar unusual combinations based on the success of this one! Ingredients 1 ridge gourd juice of 1 orange 4-5 cloves of garlic 1-2 dried…more

ReadyPasta

I tend to keep a lean pantry, which often means I am most hungry and eager to cook when there is practically nothing in my refrigerator! That always leads to the simplest recipes that can be whipped together easily and quickly – and most often these are the best eaten cold too! This pasta was equally delicious as a fresh, warm bake as it was the next day when pulled out of the fridge and eaten cold! Ingredients 200g pasta of your choice (I also used Slyly Simple’s fresh beetroot macaroni for this one) 75g ricotta cheese 1 cup of fresh peas, boiled until al…more

OrangeDillCream

This recipe is another reason why you should reach out to buy that pretty looking bundle of dill the next time you are in the market. The secret of making dill taste good is to combine it with the right flavours. It works beautifully with dairy, potatoes, aubergine and citrus fruits. So this pasta sauce of orange juice, fresh cream, butter and dill is sure to hit the spot! IngredientsJuice of one orange 30-40g butter 50g fresh cream 1/2 cup chopped dill 4-5 cloves of garlic, crushed and chopped fine salt and pepper to taste 150-200g short pasta (I have also tried this sauce with…more
