Curried Millet Cakes with Cucumber Mint Raita

Curried Millet Cakes with Cucumber Mint Raita

These golden millet cakes are laced with curry powder, scallions, carrots, peas, garlic and ginger, and are served with a cooling cucumber and mint raita. I pair them with a simple salad for a vibrant and healthy weeknight meal or easy lunch (the cakes can be assembled the day before then sautéed right before eating). The millet cakes are warm and slightly spicy, the raita is creamy and refreshing, and the result is totally addicting. Be sure to pack the cakes tightly so that they hold together, and make sure that your non-stick pan is well oiled. If you don't have time to make the raita, mix Greek yogurt with a touch of grated garlic and a splash of lemon juice instead.

Potato Salmon Cakes with Creamy Yogurt Sauce

Potato Salmon Cakes with Creamy Yogurt Sauce

These salmon and potato cakes hit all of my crave buttons—they’re hot and crispy, cool and creamy, and they’re laced with scallions, garlic and ginger. A hint of sesame oil and tamari (or soy sauce) gives them a slight Asian flare, while a quick yogurt sauce lends cool creaminess. The cakes are easy to make and are an awesome prep-ahead dinner or appetizer. I prefer to use wild salmon in this recipe (it’s a great time to use frozen salmon—just defrost it before baking). Don’t be tempted to use Yukon Gold or Russet potatoes in place of the red potatoes—their higher water content won’t allow the cakes to brown properly.

Authentic Greek Tzatziki

Authentic Greek Tzatziki

Tzatziki is probably one of those Greek recipes that needs no introduction! This famous dip is a creamy and refreshing mixture of thick Greek yoghurt, cucumber, garlic and olive oil. It’s enough to transport anybody back to a Greek taverna, eating some souvlaki in the sun! Even if you’ve never visited Greece, you’ve likely enjoyed tzatziki as a dip for pita bread or carrot sticks, at a sunny barbecue with friends. Now that the sun is smiling down on us and our BBQ is permanently uncovered, this is a regular side dish to any and all of our BBQ recipes, and to dip flatbreads or pitas into when our mouths are watering and we just can’t wait for everything to be cooked!

Greek Tzatziki Chia Fusilli Pasta Salad

Greek Tzatziki Chia Fusilli Pasta Salad

So it seems like my flavor moods recently have been closely related. Today I’m going from my past two middle eastern focused recipes and making my way to the edge of Europe. Greece, to be more specific. In all honesty this was totally not planned. In fact, I first made this recipe over a month ago and everyone loved it but that day happened to be one of the darkest and rainiest days ever so trying to capture it in pictures just didn’t happen. I’m actually kind of embarrassed to admit to you guys that I took not just one, not two, but a whopping THREE different sets of photos for this salad. That’s probably a record even for me. Yeah, and I know that probably makes me sound a little obsessive but for some reason this pasta was just not photogenic at all and I hated the way it was looking. I’m still not thrilled with these pics but they’re at least a little better than the last. Like I said, the first time I made this was over a month ago but the photos were awful. I decided to go ahead and type out the recipe anyway so that I wouldn’t forget to share it. That’s also one of the ways that I try motivating myself to make a photo shoot work even when I want to scratch the whole thing. I was getting backed up on some things last week and really needing something simple to fix for lunch and that’s when I remembered this salad and decided to give it another chance to pose for me. I shot a second set of photos that morning but later I realized that I’d forgotten to add a few of the ingredients that I wanted in the recipe so I had to take a whole new set of pictures later that day. Fine, maybe I am a little obsessive sometimes, but enough about my ongoing photography issues. Let’s talk about this pasta salad! Did you know that you can buy chia pasta? Yeah, and it’s really good too. I used a brand that is made and sold here in Chile but I’m sure you can find similar brands wherever you live. Oh and can I just say, thinking of Chilean things reminds me how pasta salad is a pretty funny subject down here. The last time my mom took a bowl of it to a ladie’s gathering with some local friends, well, they didn’t really get it. She actually had someone ask her when and how you’re supposed to eat it (in a way that implied they’d never eat it). I think it’s safe to say we won’t try that one again since we’ve figured out that cold pasta is clearly far outside the bounds of Chilean cuisine and they find it really weird. I feel like this is becoming the story of my life in food the longer I live here. Hey, more for us, right? If you can’t find chia pasta you could just use regular fusilli or use any shape and type of pasta you like for that matter. It doesn’t necessarily have to be chia pasta. Although I did love using it and I recommend you try it if you stumble upon it at your local grocery store at some point (I’m not advertising anything btw, purely my own opinion here). As for the other ingredients in this salad, they’re all really simple things that you probably already have in your pantry and fridge. Just some super simple prep work and your all set. K, then you make a quick and easy tzatziki sauce and that’s what really brings the whole thing together and makes it so delicious. I didn’t even know half my family liked cucumbers so much until the first time I tried the stuff. Personally, when it comes to the world of veggies, they’re lower down on my list of faves but somehow when you add them to the other things in the tzatziki it creates a sauce that I completely fell in love with at first taste. In one of the earlier takes that I made of this recipe I added some avocado and in another one I thought I’d skip the olives for the haters in my gang.

Carrot Cake with Yogurt Cream

Carrot Cake with Yogurt Cream

What’s a Greek carrot cake, I hear you ask? Well, for me, all things Greek use Greek yoghurt wherever possible! So yes, this is a carrot cake without cream cheese -I substitute in that tart, rich tang of Greek yoghurt instead, to make for a slightly healthy carrot cake, as well as a yummy one. That tart, sweet tang is literally ‘the icing on the cake’ when it comes to carrot cake - that vegetable, spiced moist batter is just complemented so perfectly by a tangy sweet frosting. Carrot cake might just be my favourite cake - and that’s saying something! Being wholemeal flour, as well as containing carrots, raisins, and walnuts as well as eggs and plenty of spices, I can convince myself that this indulgent treat is at least doing me a little bit more good than a decadent fudge cake, for example. Yoghurt icing for carrot cake isn’t completely pioneering - it really does mimic that slightly sour-sweet tang that cream cheese frosting delivers, but with the added goodness of Greek yoghurt. A creamy Greek yoghurt frosting is just as easy to make as a cream cheese one, and we are always more likely to have Greek yoghurt in the fridge - so it just makes this cake a real easy store cupboard bake for our household.
