Herbed lamb ribs

Small lamb ribs are always a fingerlicking

winner, especially when done

on the braai. Use Tastebud Herbed

spice blend as a rub – packed with

thyme, rosemary, basil, marjoram,

coriander, ginger and loads of other

good things, it will up your rib game

to sensational. Serve with braaiblistered

vine tomatoes and lemons.

You’ll need:

800g lamb ribs; Tastebud Herbed

spice blend; 3 tbsp tomato sauce;

1 tbsp lemon juice; 1 tsp runny


To make:

Dust lamb ribs with spice blend and

set aside for 30 to 60 minutes. Brush

ribs lightly with olive oil and place on

a hot braai or under the grill element

of your oven. Turn often and cook

until done to your liking. Mix tomato

sauce, lemon juice, honey and half

a tsp of the Herbed spice blend and

generously paint ribs for the final

15 minutes of cooking. (If you do it

earlier, the basting sauce will burn.)

Serve right away.

Seeded pita chips with baked

Camembert and honey-roasted grapes

Every cook should have a few no-fail recipes they can turn to for

quick snacks to feed unexpected guests. These seeded pita chips

with baked Camembert and honey-roasted grapes is one of them!

Prep is only five minutes and your oven does the rest in under 15.

Spend more time with friends, less time in the kitchen – just the

way summer entertaining should be.

You’ll need:

1 Camembert; 1 clove garlic (peeled and sliced into slivers); 1 sprig

thyme; 1 large bunch red grapes; 2 tbsp honey; one packet of pita


To make:

Preheat oven to 180°C. Place the Camembert in a round

ovenproof bowl that just fits the cheese. Make tiny cuts in the

cheese and stuff it with garlic slivers and thyme leaves. Cut the

pita breads into triangles, paint very lightly with olive oil and

dust with Tastebud Seeded spice blend. Place on a baking tray

lined with baking paper. Place grapes on another lined baking

tray. Melt the honey by microwaving it for 20 seconds and pour

over the grapes. Place the bowl with Camembert on the tray

with the grapes. Place both trays in the oven for 10 to 15 minutes

until the pita is toasted, the grapes roasted and the Camembert

oozing. (The grapes and Camembert will take the same amount

of time, but keep an eye on the pita chips as they may need to be

removed a few minutes earlier.) Serve right away.
