Cardamom pods impart a distinctive flavour to biscuits, bread and dessert recipes. They are also commonly used in Indian curries and chai.
Don't be turned off by the idea of 'just' salt and pepper. The marinade is intense with flavour, but it's the final seasoning of simple salt and pepper that really makes it delicious. Gotta use sea salt and freshly ground pepper here, please don't bother with the usual stuff. Such a difference.
Cardamom is the secret ingredient that makes these super-simple meringues special. Serve with a fruit compote and whipped cream if you like.
Believe it or not this loaf cake recipe comes from Iceland, where it is served at Christmas. You'll want to make it more often than that!
You can use practically any soft fruit in this smoothie but mango is my favourite. The tiny cardamom seeds are the perfect garnish.
This recipes is both a fitting end to a dinner party and a special brunch treat. It looks complicated but isn't-the kids can help you make it.
