Baked Tofu, Quinoa & Black Bean

Baked tofu has a firmer texture and holds its shape better when tossed through a salad. This is deceiving as it is packed with loads of flavour, be liberal with the chilli and lemon as it really lifts this super fragrant dish.

Egg Rougaille

Rougaille is a classic Creole sauce which gives its name to many Mauritian dishes; it looks like a simple tomato sauce but is so much more. It has a huge depth of flavour thanks to the European herbs parsley and thyme, the heat provided by the chilli and the Indian flavourings of ginger, coriander and garlic.

Pepper Pot Soup

This dish is usually made using offcuts of beef, usually beef shin, and other meats can be used, but I think at this time of the year, we can’t get enough flavour from the wonderful root vegetables in season, so I tend not to use meat in this recipe.

Chilli Cakes

These deliciously spicy gateau piment are best served hot and are perfect with a crisp beer like Pheonix. If you can’t get hold of this beer then it would work equally well with something like Asahi. Bon Appetit!
