WHAT HAPPENS WHEN BATMAN RULES THE KITCHEN

This one is for our furry four-legged companions and comes from our wonderful friends at Sense of Taste Chef School.  They’re introducing a dog called Batman!  Batman is the mascot for the Sense of Taste Chef School and is Chef Peter’s Baby Boy who goes everywhere with him. And Batman wants to be a Chef when he is big 🙂

One of the dishes  Batman likes Chef Peter  to make for him is Turkey, Lentil, Spinach and Butternut Meat Balls. (one of Batman’s favourites) And as Chef Peter would season all his dishes for 2 legged folk – he seasons Batman’s dishes with Oryx Salt. After all the flavour and seasoning of any dish is paramount.

This recipe makes enough for 3 to 4 meals

Ingredients

  • ½  Cup Brown Rice
  • 2 ½ Cups Turkey Mince
  • 2 Cups Finely Chopped Spinach
  • 2 Cups Brown Lentils
  • 2 Cups Shredded Butternut
  • 1 ½ Cups Pearl Barley
  • 3 Tablespoons Olive Oil
  • Oryx Desert Salt to season all ingredients
  • Sprinkle of Oryx Desert Salt when serving

Method

  • Cook the brown rice, lentils, barley – as per instructions on packet – and allow to cool
  • Cook Spinach and Butternut in some water until tender – allow to cool
  • Season Turkey meat as well you barley, brown rice, spinach, butternut with Oryx Desert Salt
  • Combine all ingredients together with olive oil
  • Roll mixture into “meatball shapes” – not too big – not too small
  • Place the meatballs onto baking tray and bake in the oven at 180’C for about 20 min – until Turkey is cooked
  • Allow to cool – sprinkle with Oryx Salt and serve to your 4 legged children

Chef’s Tip: You can make a bigger batch of these meatballs – double the recipe – roll into meatballs and freeze before baking. When needed simply defrost and bake!

DIY RED WINE & HERB SALT SEASONING

Following on from Pete Kirk’s recipe we continue with our theme SALT ‘n SEASONINGS – why? Because our wonderful partner-in-salt lifestyle chef Izelle Hoffman came to us with a fab idea of creating a series of customised sizzling season mixes based on Oryx Desert Salt especially for us!

Izelle says: “I love making use of raw honey in my recipes, and these seasoning mixes are no exception. Raw honey creates magic once it’s added to the season; and it works well whether it’s used for meaty dishes or vegetables!”

These recipes use small quantities so once it’s mixed up you’ll have enough to fill a 100g bottle with a little bit extra.

The instructions for all the mixes are basic, easy and simple but have a BIG flavour!

Give them a try! Here’s the first one:
