Mum’s hommus, caramelised onion and beef casserole recipes – the best

One of the best things about going home for the weekend is that my mum looks after me with so much great food. This post is more for helping me remember a few great recipes that mum made rather than anything to do with marketing, advertising or digital. If I put the recipes online, I have no excuse for loosing the piece of paper or forgetting how to make them.

Please feel free to try the following. They are so simple and easy.

Hommus (Philip Johnson’s recipe – minor modifications)

  • 1 can of organic chickpeas
  • 1/2 lemon, juice only
  • 1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon of tahini
  • 2 teaspoons of crushed garlic
  • 1/4 cup of extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 cup of chickpea juice (from can)
  • sea salt/ cracked pepper

Place chickpeas, lemon juice, vinegar, tahini, garlic, salt, pepper and oil into the food processor (hand held). Add the chickpea juice to adjust consistency.

TIME: 5 mins

Caramelised onion (Philip Johnson’s recipe – minor modifications)

  • 10 onions (red or brown)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon of unsalted butter
  • 100ml red wine vinegar (or balsamic vinegar)
  • sea salt/ black pepper

Cut onions into semi-circles. Heat oil and butter in pan over moderate heat. Add the onions and allow to sweat for 10mins. Add vinegar and cook for 15 – 20mins or until onions are dark in colour and jam-like consistency. Season with sea salt and black pepper. Cool and store in covered container in fridge.

TIME: 40 mins

Beef casserole (mum’s own recipe)

  • 550 – 700grams of beef strips (heart-tick)
  • 1 can of diced tomatoes
  • 1 teaspoon of beef stock
  • hand full of cut green beans (or peas)
  • 2 diced carrots
  • 1 cut stick of celery
  • 1 diced zucchini
  • 1 diced brown onion (could be frozen)
  • chopped parsley
  • 2 teaspoons of relish
  • 3/4 cup of water
  • 4 tablespoons of corn flour
  • sea salt/ black pepper

Combine all ingredients in a casserole dish. Heat the oven to 160 degrees. Cook for 1.45 – 2 hours. Stir every 30 mins and start monitoring after 1.30 hr for consistency. Serve with mashed potato or rice. YUM!

Time: 2.3 hrs (great weekend and cold weather food)
