Watermelon Strawberry Smoothie

Fruity, creamy and good looking! We couldn’t have combined it any better. We made watermelon the stronger flavour here but you can decide to increase the strawberry. The choice is yours but whichever one you choose, you would be having a swell time.

1 cup strawberries

Process all the ingredients until smooth.

Serve chilled!



You have seen pizza, omelette, indomielette and the likes but this one here… *lips sealed*. This is awesomeness in a plate and NO! It is not the same thing with suya. This is an ideal holiday recipe and it doesn’t take so much effort to prepare.



450 g minced meat

10 pcs rodo

1 bunch basil

2 tsp ground pepper

2 pcs tatase

1 pcs green bell pepper

1 tsp curry powder

2 tbsp white oat

6 pcs tomato

2 pcs onions

1 pinch thyme

1 tsp salt

2 pcs seasoning cubes

2 pcs eggs

2 scoops vegetable oil


Using 4 tomatoes and 4 pepper (blended), prepare stew or sauce with vegetable oil, salt and stock cube.

Wash and slice the remaining tomatoes, pepper, onions. Set all aside.

Place your minced meat in a bowl, add all the spices and seasonings. Mix in well but also carefully.

Add in the oatmeal and eggs. The oatmeal is to bind everything together. you can make use of breadcrumbs but oatmeal is a healthier option.

Gently combine all the ingredients until it forms a ball. Emphasis on gently, don’ overwork the mince. If it is not holding up to a ball, either add another egg or little more oatmeal. Take out the mince and carefully lay out in a lightly greased pan, until all areas are covered

Spread out your stew or sauce unto the mince. Add your toppings – onions, tomatoes, rodo, sliced tatase, green pepper and morarella cheese

Cover with foil, to keep moist and then place in a preheated oven at 200 degrees and allow to cook for about 20 minutes. You will observe that the mince will shrink, but that is expected.

Before serving, top with fresh leaves.
