Roast Brussels Sprouts and Carrots with Dukkah


I am really into roasting vegetables this time of year, and I have found boiling them until nearly cooked and then roasting them speeds up the process. Recently I found Dukkah in Lidl (I think they have some fun international spice blends) and used in this dish. Dukkah is an Egyptian and Middle Eastern condiment consisting of a mixture of herbs, nuts, and spices.

Tuna Poke Bowl



This is something we have enjoyed from restaurants but after hubby and the kids did a sushi class with a chef in Japan on sushi making, we made this with the extra sushi grade tuna we had. By the way air b and b has some great cooking lessons under experiences my son also did one with a lady in Nice making French apple crepes I have included a clip below to make you smile. 

 This would make a fun packed lunch also.
