This butternut squash bisque recipe tastes lusciously delicious, it is velvety, creamy, and super easy to make, the most difficult thing you have to do is cut the squash, but I ask my husband to do it for me 😉

Plus it’s clean eating, gluten-free, and easily converted to be vegan.

The secret to the most intense flavour is the leek. A dollop of cream, nutmeg and frizzled sage and coriander leaves complete this wintertime classic.

This recipe was adapted from the one my friend Gosia has sent to me.

 

Escondidinho in Brazil, cottage pie or Shepherd’s pie in North America, Pastelón in Mexico or Caribe… This pie is a casserole that combines yuca (cassava/ manioc) and a savoury filling – meat (ground beef – my family favourite), shrimp (my favourite), diced chicken, turkey, fish, dried codfish (bacalhau), pork, Sun-dried Beef/jerked beef (The famous Escondidinho de Carne Seca in Brazil) and also soy or veggies could be added or used without meat for a vegetarian version… The fillings are limited only by your imagination.

A true one casserole dish that can also be made from leftovers. You already know that I absolutely love casseroles, not only because they are delicious but also because they are easy and ideal for busy days. You can make it ahead and leave it in your fridge and bake it at the end of the day when you come home from work! It can be served by itself or accompanied by a fresh salad or steamed vegetables. It’s really up to you!

It is one of the most versatile pies that can be assembled. And if you don’t like or find the yuca (cassava/manioc) you can also make it using different types of mashed roots, like potatoes or sweet potatoes or instant mashed potatoes, as a substitute.

It’s gluten-free, the dough is perfect for the gluten intolerant. This is pure fabulousness! One of my favourites dishes.

 

Kibbeh (pronounced kee-bee and also spelled quibe, kibe, kibbe, kebbah, kubbeh, kubbah kubbi or kobeiba depending on region) is a dish made of Bulgur (cracked wheat), minced onions, and finely ground lean beef with mint, basil, cinnamon and optional spices. It can be optionally stuffed with mozzarella, provolone or cream cheese (Catupiry in Brazil).

This recipe has been adapted from the one my Godmother Regina Alfradique has sent to me and there are several ways to eat. The football-shaped deep-fried (or also shaped into balls or patties), baked in a casserole dish (my favourite way), cooked in broth, or just served raw with olive oil.

Kibbeh is a popular dish in Brazil and Middle Eastern cuisine. Most Brazilian kibbeh uses only ground beef and not other types of meat but in Middle Eastern, they also use lamb, goat, or camel meat.

 

The French term for this medium-thick white sauce is béchamel.

It’s a white sauce made from butter, milk, flour and salt.

It’s the basic recipe that with a few additions can turn into a cheese sauce, and also can be used as an important base for soufflés. Béchamel (white) sauce with chicken broth is a variation of it with a mild flavor of chicken.
