Raw Pineapple Curry with Aubergine Pancakes

Here is a recipe I found at rawmazing.com

(you can tell the difference between myself, as a lay chef, and Susan from Rawmazing, a professional, just by a comparison of the two above photos! 🙂

Aubergine Pancakes

A tasty, substantial savoury pancake.  Plus it contains aubergine, which I love at the minute, for some reason, that may or not not be to do with the nicotine content!  Makes 4.

  • 1 aubergine
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped garlic
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped onion
  • 50 g (2o z) flour
  • 4 tablespoon vegetable stock
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 teaspoons chopped parsley
  • Salt and pepper

Prick the aubergine all over and roast it on a baking sheet at 175°C/350°F/Gas Mark 4 for 30-35 minutes. Let it cool, then scoop out the flesh into a mixing bowl and mash it with a fork until it is smooth. Sauté the garlic and onions in a non-stick pan (with water or a little stock if desired). Add this to the aubergine. Add the flour, baking powder, stock, parsley, pepper, and salt, and mix it all thoroughly. Coat a frying pan with a little oil and heat it to a medium heat. Add spoonfuls of the batter to the pan and cook until golden.

Huevos Rancheros

This one’s a spicy Mexican dish, adapted to make sure you get a good intake of greens.

Ingredients:

2 eggs,

4 lettuce leaves,

1 green chilli, chopped

1 onion, chopped

1 garlic clove, sliced or crushed

pinch of paprika

extra virgin olive oil

Fry the eggs in oil.  In another pan, heat a glug of oil with a tablespoon of water.  Add the garlic.  Once that’s browned, add the onion, chilli and paprika.  Allow to boil then simmer for 5-10 minutes, stirring occasionally.  When the eggs are fried to your liking, sit each one atop a lettuce leaf on a plate.  Add the spicy onions on top – they will cook the eggs a little more.  Cover with the remaining leaves of lettuce.  Enjoy 🙂
