This weekend we ate mostly outdoors. It's been a long time since we've enjoyed a whole weekend of sunshine.
The raita was perfect for our home made beef burgers. If you want a meaty burger why not make your own. Our RECIPE is very quick and easy.
Or why not take try our SMOKY BBQ SAUCE recipe. These sauces only take a few minutes to put together, and we're sure you'll enjoy them just as much as we do.
Here's our recipe for RAITA:
125g full fat greek yoghurt*
5cm piece of cucumber (peeled)
handful of chopped mint
teaspoon of cumin seeds
Remove the seeds from the cucumber and finely dice the flesh. Place on a kitchen towel then give it a gentle squeeze to extract a little of the moisture.
Mix the cucumber and chopped mint into the yoghurt.
Season with salt and pepper.
DRY fry the cumin seeds for a minute or so to release their aroma. Allow to cool then add to the raita.
*Greek yoghurt is much thicker and creamier than natural plain yoghurt and therefore you won't need to add sour cream. This keeps the sauce low in calories.
REMEMBER: We all have a calorie allowance - do you know yours?
We began our weight loss journey in January 2011 - and began our blog in June 2011. Here's a link to the first post. (here's the link).
We like to post our main meals to show you what CAN be eaten. You won’t find us posting every last morsel though – but we hope this gives you an idea of how far calories can go! I'm currently going through the photographs and replacing them with more website friendly versions which will allow the blog to load quickly.
