Sorry for the lack of posts recently. We have just moved and still have no internet!
Here are a few photos of us from the Undress for Dinner #1 event at the lovely 8th Day Cafe. We didn’t take many photos of the event as we weren’t organising. We’d like to say a massive thanks to Jez at SANS for organising an amazing event.

Mujaddara is a delicious and economical dish, made from rice, lentils, and caramelised onions. Our recipe comes from our housemate who picked it up whilst living in Palestine.
This recipe doesnt have much in the way of quantities, you can pretty much make it to meet whatever requirements you have. Some people also add a bit of cumin or stock to the rice, which might be nice if you like that sort of thing. Personally, I think its best with lots of onion.
Ingredients: onions, lentils (washed and soaked), rice, cumin (optional), stock (optional), salt, olive oil, 1 tsp sugar (optional)
Cut the onions into strips and fry in some olive oil until caramelised, add a teaspoon of sugar if you are impatient / have a sweet tooth. After the onions have fried, place them on a plate and pat dry. Add the rice and lentils to the oil used to fry the onions and add water and bring to the boil. At this point you might like to add stock or cumin. When the rice and lentil mixture is cooked, serve topped with the caramelised onions. Delicious.
