the joy of summer

so summer holidays are here soon and the kids are just preparing for their exams and once thats done schools out ... so it will be back to cooking lunches and dinners every day ...... while their in school i dont need to do lunches as they stay in school all day and get feed their .... but with them being at home it means having to cook ...

but the best thing about summer it is easy cooking .... all light lunches which will make me happy and one of those lunches is this potato and spinach mix

such a simple dish

fry some chips and place them in bottom of oven dish

at the same time chop up spinach (i prefer them chop small ) and place in a  little water and boil ... you can use baby spinach here just place a little butter in a pan and add spinach and allow to wilt

then when spinach is cooked drain out water and allow to cool down ... then you need to take the spinach into your hands and squeeze the remainder of water out and place the spinach over your chips the dice some onions small and sprinkle over everything and grate some garlic too

them mix about 6 eggs in a bowl and leave aside ... before adding your eggs  place little knobs of butter all over the mix and sprinkle  a little black pepper and salt ... then add small pieces of mince meat around the dish .. you can leave it out if you prefer ...... and then this is when you add your eggs and place in the oven

you can serve this with some salad if you like


  1. Salam Alaykom,

  3. Salam Alaykom,

Pocasi/ split green pea soup

Asalamu alikum Well it sure has been a long time since i posted so i thought let me share this Pocasi recipe with you while i remember This soup is made from split green peas first i wash the peas and then add them to my pot (i used a pressure cooker) i added onion ... garlic..... i diced up carrots ...courgettes...and potato into  really small bits and added to the pot i also added black pepper....salt ...cumin...and razel hanut.... fill with water and placed lid on  and allowed to cook about 30 to 40 mins in total ... then let the pressure out and open then  stir.... if you need more water add and allow to cook towards the end add some tomato puree and allow to thicken up a little .... when i make this i do not use oil and i should say that this type of soup will continue to thicken and even the next day you will need to add more water to thin out ... but masha`allah is a really nice soup
