Annikka is a super user on MyDish – She is originally from Germany, Berlin to be precise, but been living in London for over 14 years.
She said about herself that she is in love with cooking, food and nutrition.
“Cooking for me is therapy in a saucepan, frying pan or oven dish. I always have to bake something on the weekend, whether its savoury or sweet. I am a happy single I mostly can eat all myself. Yum! Of course I like to share my recipes with friends and family, which is the reason why they are being collected here. All tried, tested and more so requested!!
Annikas choice for her favourite menu is featured below…….
Annikka’s Guilt-free Dinner Party Menu
This recipes combines roasted vegetables which are drizzled with soy sauce to keep it light and healthy together with chopped basil and rosemary. Of course you can add olive oil to your liking to both recipes. But its delicious without and makes it a guilt free and healthy alternative without any loss in flavour. The Hummus is made with sun dried tomatoes (or peppers as an alternative) and can be made up to 5 days in advance and stored in the fridge. Serve with small crispy toasted pitta bread pieces.
For the main course , Annikka has chosen Chicken Cacciatore – otherwise known as Hunter’s chicken. This is Chicken sauteed with onions, mushroom and garlic with bayleaves, basil and paprika and simmered all together in a tomato sauce. This dish works best using chicken thighs and is great served with rice.
And to finish we have Berry Puff Tarts.
Cutting the puff pastry into four squares you then score around the edge of each approximately 1cm in and bake for about 15 minutes until the pastry has risen and is a nice golden colour. To make the filling, beat together fromage frais and quark with a little rose water. (Alternatively you can use whipped cream or custard!) Layer this into the center of the squares and then top with berries – yummy, potentially healthy and looks impressive too!
Thanks Annikka for sharing!
