Squiz Recipes 2019

Squizers quite enjoyed our recipes recommendations in 2019. Here’s a selection of some of the most popular…

FEELING FRESH

Roasted Cauliflower Salad with Yogurt Dressing and Almonds
Squiz Tip: Pair with steak. But it’s good on its own too. 

Chilli roasted carrots with cashews
Squiz Tip: Great with roast chook. 

Spring Green Salad 
Squiz Tip: We had this with some grilled salmon, and it made us feel holier than thou.

Moroccan carrot and chickpea salad
Squiz Tip: It’s bright, super tasty, and best served cold.

Potato and pickle salad

A BIT MORE MEATY

Middle Eastern Lamb Meatball and Giant Cous Cous Traybake with Yoghurt, Kale and Beetroot
Squiz Tip: Couscous – tick. Meatballs – tick. And 30 minutes from prep to serving – tick. 

Vinegar Chicken with Crushed Olive Dressing
Squiz Tip: It’s all the New York Times’ ‘Cooking’ site can talk about at the moment (note: that link is from another site, but if you have a subscription to Cooking, you can check it out here).

Oven-Baked Chicken and Mushroom Risotto (sponsored)
Squiz Tip: Once you’ve got an oven-baked risotto in your recipe arsenal, you’ve officially nailed it. Mushrooms and chicken, a couple of minutes stirring, and into the oven. That sound you can hear is applause – for you.

Fish and Eggplant Curry

Lamb Shanks
Squiz Tip: Use the french cut ones if you have time to get to a butcher, and if you can’t, make sure you trim the fat off. 

Chilli Con Carne
Squiz Tip: Modify with a bit more beef mince for the anti-kidney bean and anti-pork people.

Spag Bol by Jill Dupleix 

Roast Chicken with Bacon on Potatoes
Squiz Tip: You can never have too many roast chook recipes…

Beef Bourguignon
Squiz Tip: Margaret Fulton died in July 2019 – this was a favourite recipe of hers.

Garlic Prawns

SWEET TOOTH

Squiz Pikelets

Apple, Oat and Coconut Bircher Muffins
Squiz Tip: It’s delish with some yoghurt as a dipping sauce. 

Brownies – Recipe from Squizer, Pamela Lawson aka ‘Bundle’

Sour Cherry and Almond Cake
Squiz Tip: Have it it warm for dessert with some cream – delish. And it’s an easy one too.

Lime and Almond Slice

Apple and Raspberry Cobbler
Squiz Tip: It’s a good/easy one for a cold Saturday night in front of the telly.

Katharine Hepburn’s brownies
Squiz Tip: A great story and an easy recipe to boot. 

THE REST

Edamame Dip with Red Onion and Sesame Oil
Squiz Tip: It’s a ripper, that is all. 

Salad Dressings

Tonnato with asparagus
Squiz Tip: This is a low-cook gourmet option for a light lunch/entree. 

Greek Goddess Dip
Squiz Tip: Good for carrot/celery sticks and crackers, and it makes a good drizzle sauce for salads and grilled meat/chicken/fish. We’ve subbed out the mayo for a little more yoghurt, but you do you.
