Potato Wedges

בס"ד
 
I love potatoes in about any form.
Ever since I can remember myself, we ate potatoes.
My mother prepared each Monday meatballs and mashed potatoes, my father served us potatoes cooked in their peels and seasoned with salt and every event we went there was a potato dish, maybe it's a conspiracy, I don't know :-) ,
So now almost every weekend we make a simple dish of chicken cooked with peeled potatoes and a sauce.
Sometimes you look for something different, a potato, but still different, so I prepared a very tasty and simple potato and yam wedges, so good.
 
Ingredients:
potatoes
yams
Cajun seasoning
olive oil
parchment paper
large baking pan
 
preparation:
Heat oven to 200 degrees Celsius (392F).
Wash the unpeeled potatoes and cut into wedges.
Peel the yams and cut into wedges too.
Place parchment paper on the baking pan and drizzle a bit of olive oil on the pan.
Mix the olive oil with the seasoning, add the wedges to the pan and spread well with the Cajun and olive oil paste.
Bake for an hour and bon appetite.

Easy and fast Twix bar

בס"ד

I don't know when is the last time I had Twix, but after seeing this at Winnie's blog, I really wanted to make it, but I wanted to make it very fast and very simple.
So I bought a premade shortcrust pastry, one sweet and the other savory.
Baked, filled with milk toffee cream and covered with milk chocolate, delish!

Ingredients:
450 gram savory shortcrust pastry
450 gram sweet shortcrtust pastry
1/3 cup whipping cream
1 cup milk toffee, about 20 candies
Milk chocolate

Preparation:
Place the two pastry rectengulars on one another, and bake in 180 degree Celsius for about 30 minutes.
Meanwhile, prepare the toffee cream :
Melt the cream and toffee together on a low heat.
When the pastry is ready, set aside to cool.
Cut into small cubes or equaled size fingers and spread the toffee cream on top.
Take two fingers and place one on the other.
Continue with the rest and put in the fridge till set.
Melt milk chocolate and coat the fingers.
Bon appetite :-)

Baked Falafel

בס"ד
 
There's nothing like falafel in a pita with tahini, hummus and veggies, well there is but it's so delicious.
The original falafel is deep fried, and I wanted to make a healthier version of it.
This falafel is vegetarian, vegan and quite healthy.
 
Ingredients:
Chickpeas soaked overnight
Salt
Pepper
Dried Parsley
Dried Coriander
Garlic
Oil for pan
 
Preparation:
Soak chickpeas overnight, replace water at least 3 times.
Strain the chickpeas and In a food processor, place the chickpeas and
add season according to taste. Blend well and taste, if needed add more seasoning.
Put oil in a pan, so the oil covers the all surface.
Heat oven to 180 degrees Celsius (356 Fahrenheit)
Roll the chickpeas mixture into small balls, place in the oil and rotate the ball in the oil, so they are covered in every side.
Bake in the oven for 25 minutes, when half way turn the balls upside down, so they will golden in the other side too.
 
You can serve with Tahini, Enjoy!
