Grilled Zucchini with Romesco Sauce

Zucchini can be very watery and have a bland taste. The grill can fix these problems, if done right. The flesh gets infused with smoky flavor and softens, the excess moisture evaporates and exterior becomes burnished, intensifying flavor. Sweet, smoky, tangy Romesco sauce perfectly complements grilled zucchini. This famous Catalan sauce is made from...

Lentil Chilli Bites

 In my family I have to be inventive when it comes to feeding them lentils, as they don’t give this food the respect it deserves. In this dish I managed to make it so tasty they actually ask me to cook it for them now.Of course it’s not guilt free as it’s a fried...
