This is one of the best spinach dishes I’ve tasted. This super easy creamy spinach soufflé is a treasured recipe from my childhood. Actually, it was my childhood favorite. My mom’s version was made with eggs (egg yolks and beaten egg whites to give volume), but I’ve updated the recipe to make it faster and easier.

Surprisingly, my vegetable-avoiding son loves this spinach soufflé. This one and this Carrot soufflé are the only veggies that he eats. I have a feeling this spinach soufflé will become one of your family favorites, too.

 

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.

 

I have been making this bread for almost 20 years and it’s part of my best recipes collection. Parmesan cheese and Italian seasoning add a little “hum” to Italian bread. Serve it hot with your favourite Italian dish, cut into slices or toasted, with butter, dips and/or cheese.

There’s just something about a loaf of homemade bread that you don’t get with normal store-bought bread. Maybe the warm, delicate smell of bread baking, or maybe the soft, fluffy roundness of it.

 

It’s easy, Fast, and colorful. It looks so festive that I decided to publish it for the New Year’s Eve parties.

Arroz à Grega (“Greek-style rice” – Although given the name “Greek”, in Greece there is no such rice dish) is a Brazilian dish, consisting of rice (of course) cooked with raisins and small pieces of vegetables, the most common of them are small cubes of carrot, green peas, sweet corn and green onions. It can get small bits of ham (smoked or not), sausage and/or turkey breast (smoked or not), among other processed meat supposed to be eaten cold, but if chicken meat or shrimps are used, it is instead known as risotto.

 

It is a delicious casserole dish, also called as strata (or stratta), and very similar to this Brazilian Blender Pie, quiche or frittata, made from a mixture which mainly consists of bread, eggs, milk and cheese. It may also include meat and/or vegetables.

I hate to waste anything, and this is a very simple solution for the leftover bread. You can eat it for brunch, lunch or dinner.

This elegant casserole dish of cubes of bread baked in custard is often a lifesaver on busy days and within 10 minutes you can have it in the oven! You can also assemble it the night before and pop it in the oven as soon as you wake up. I also like it because you can pretty much use whatever you want as a filling. For this one I used cheese and smoked ham but the recipe is pretty flexible so you can play around with different meat and/or sautéed vegetables depending on what you have on hand.

 

Did you know you don’t have to spend time peeling and cutting potatoes to enjoy a delicious hot bowl of creamy Kale potato soup (AKA Caldo Verde)?

Caldo Verde, a potato and kale soup from Portugal, is a go-to recipe when the weather gets cold outside or for lazy rainy days, when you want something hearty and comforting but don’t feel like putting in a ton of effort.

It’s made with a few simple ingredients, it takes all of maybe 10 minutes of prep work, and it’s ready to eat just less half an hour later. Oh, and it’s all made in a single pot, too. And did I mention delicious? It’s really delicious.

 

Crispy fish without the grease – Haddock (or other white fish) is lightly breaded and baked. Parmesan adds a nice flavour. 

Fast and easy to prepare, and no frying needed! Oven-baked fish is a perfect alternative to the more caloric fried version.

So much flavor… so easy, healthy and tasty! Ideal for busy weeknights.

 

This Brazilian classic pie is often a lifesaver on busy days and within 10 minutes you can have it in the oven!

This recipe was adapted from the one my friend Fabiola Bedin has sent to me. The batter for this pie is made in the blender and all you need to do is pour it over the pie filling and pop it in the oven. It is really that simple!

You can eat it for lunch, dinner, or snack.

I also like it because you can pretty much use whatever you want as a filling. For this one I used cheese, sausage, sweet corn, pea, parsley, green onions and olives.

 

Simple and gluten-free Brazilian cheese puffs or rolls, aka Pão de Queijo (literally translated to ‘bread of cheese’ or ‘cheese bread’).

There are several different methods to make these little balls of heaven. A lot of them involve lots of hard to find ingredients, and methods like heating a mixture on the stove, kneading big messy dough… but this, adapted from the one my friend Roseli Quarti has sent to me, is the quickest, easiest, short-cut method with an ultra Fast liquid batter that you just put the ingredients in a blender, pour them out into a mini-muffin pan, and bake. This version is definitely less dense than the kneaded dough variety.

This super easy and Fast recipe is fail proof and absolutely mouthwatering. Make a bunch of these; you will finish them all in no time because these cheese puffs are so addictive, delicious, and once you start eating, you just can’t stop… no kidding – they are just that wonderful. I dare you to just eat one.
