There are so many meals that can be cooked over Christmas, here is a great list of Christmas menu ideas for you to review and plan your Christmas feast.
This brown rice salad recipe is made every Christmas without fail. It is a favourite of every member of the family, and whenever we have guests, they remark on the flavour of this beautiful colourful brown rice salad as well. Goes great with a bbq, other crisp leaf salads, cold meat, just about everything, use as a side dish or as a main with other salads and meat. The green and red capsicum and the black raisins make it a very colourful salad.
This is a very yummy potato bake that I always get requested to bring for Christmas or any other family get together. Best of all its really easy to make. You can really put pretty much anything between the layers, but I think an onion type flavour and a bacon type flavour taste best.
This recipe keeps your turkey moist and full of flavour. You can also use this recipe for chicken.
Asparagus so good simply roasted with a little extra virgin olive oil and red wine vinegar. A great side dish.
This is a vegetarian nut loaf that is great for Christmas or Easter, a Sunday lunch or any of those times when a meat roast is traditional. It's got a real "meaty" taste. This also includes a recipe for mushroom sauce/gravy. The original sauce recipe said to strain the sauce before serving but I prefer to just serve as it is-chunky and tasty!
A beetroot side dish with a vinaigrette based on red wine vinegar, olive oil and garlic. Serve on a bed of cos lettuce.
Fragrant basmati rice is pan fried with carrots, onions, fresh ginger, peanuts and coriander.
This hot punch is great for an autumn party or a Christmas in July. It smells just as good as it tastes.
This is a very easy and delicious dish that I like to make as a side dish for barbecues.
Roasted tasty sweet potatoes or kumara make a great addition to any meal. Very easy and a change from regular potatoes!
