Since my daughter stopped eating lunch at school I have had a permanent culinary problem. What should I make for lunch? There are moments when I don't have a clue and my creativity plays hide and seek. Sometimes I ask my children what they want. They always want tomato soup, spaghetti, borsch with ravioli and crepes. All these dishes are very yummy, but in the long run they can get boring. Chili con carne we know as a main course served with rice. Today I needed soup for my lunch, so I prepared chili con carne soup.


Ingredients (for 4 people)
400g of minced beef meat
500ml of tomato passata
500ml of beef bouillon
1 red sweet pepper
1 tin of red beans
1 tin of sweetcorn
1 red onion
2 cloves of garlic
1 chili pepper
1 tablespoon of butter
2 tablespoons of oil
1 teaspoon of sweet paprika
half a teaspoon of cumin
a pinch of curry powder
salt and pepper

Chickpeas in curry sauce, which I prepared recently, is an excellent, filling and fragrant dish. It has another asset: it is extremely swift to prepare. In a few minutes we have perfect, energy-giving and yummy comfort food. Chickpeas contain a lot of valuable nutrients: iron, zinc, potassium, phosphorus and vitamin B. Chickpeas are a rich source of dietary fibre and amino acids, which are similar to amino acids from animal protein, and nonsaturated fat acids. It is a great product for people who don't eat meat.


If you have enough time or you plan the dinner early enough, you can cook the chickpeas yourself. If you (like me) prepare the dinner at the last minute, use tinned chickpeas. Don't pour out the liquid – aquafaba. Use it to make a swift chocolate mousse, meringue or brownie.


Ingredients:
1 tin of chickpeas
1 tin of coconut milk
a piece of ginger
chili pepper
2 cloves of garlic
a piece of leek
2 tablespoons of olive oil
1 sweet red pepper
1 teaspoon of cumin
1 tablespoon of yellow curry paste
1 teaspoon of sweet paprika
2 pinches of ground coriander
salt and pepper

Some people love liver and others hate it. My immediate family belongs to the former group, but I wouldn't serve this dish during a family gathering. So far I have prepared them the traditional way with marjoram, onion and apples. This time I would like to share with you the recipe for oriental turkey liver with honey beer. My family said that the new recipe is definitely better. I think that we will give up traditional liver for a long time Uśmiech Serve this dish with rice or groats. I recommend bulgur.


Ingredients:
0.5 kg of turkey liver
a piece of ginger
1 chili pepper
2 shallots
300ml of honey beer
2 tablespoons of coconut milk
1 teaspoon of butter
oil for frying
salt and pepper

I usually serve roast white sausages at Easter. Recently in the newspapers and on TV I have seen so many dishes with white sausages that I got into the mood to prepare some dishes with them. I decided to do some according to Jamie Oliver's recipe. Jamie Oliver roasts white sausages with apples, onion and slices of parsnip. I don't like parsnip, so I added thin slices of fennel instead.


Fennel isn't a popular vegetable because of the strong anise aroma. If you don't like it, boil, fry or roast the fennel. You can make a dish with a subtle hint of anise and the result will be sweet, crunchy vegetables. Maybe you will grow to like this vegetable, which is very rich in folic acid, vitamin A, calcium and potassium.


Ingredients (for 4 people)
8 white sausages
4 apples
2 red onions
1 small fennel
1 tablespoon of honey
3 twigs of rosemary
2 tablespoons of olive oil
1 tablespoon of wine vinegar
salt and pepper

Kale is a forgotten vegetable for special tasks. It contains the biggest amount of calcium of all the vegetables, and it also doesn't contain oxalates. It is a valuable ingredient in preventing osteoporosis. Kale is a source of phosphorus, iron and ascorbic acid.


Every autumn I think about kale and make some crisps. I add it to soups, noodles and salads. This autumn I decided to prepare pesto. You need only light green fresh leaves, because the rest are harder and have thick veins. Kale pesto has an intense colour and really tastes great. Today I added it to wholegrain penne, cherry tomatoes and feta cheese.


Ingredients (for 2 people)
100g of wholegrain penne
4 kale leaves
a fistful of peeled almonds
3 tablespoons of parmesan
100ml of olive oil
150g of feta cheese
8-10 cherry tomatoes
3 tablespoons of almond flakes
