Recipes

Wattle seed & Choc Chip CookiesEat your heart out Cookie Monster, these little scrumptious morsels with Australian native Wattleseed and Choc Chip are perfect I made these delicious little brownies for two students staying with me, it was exam time and a little comfort food never goes astray.
Sticky Date Pudding with Macadamia NutsWho doesn’t love Sticky Date Pudding? Chef Justin Jennings has shared his amazing recipe that’s on the menu at his new “Australian” restaurant in Lisbon, Portugal. Fantastic food, great atmosphere. We spoke with Justin on The Aussie Radio Show about his new restaurant and living in Portugal.
Oysters with FingerlimesThis recipe is from my cookbook “The OutbackChef” New Holland Publishers This dressing makes quite a bit, store in fridge and use over a simple green salad with a sprinkling of Bush Dukkah
Easy to make
Cheese PresentCream cheese and OutbackChef’s Bush BBQ Lemon Pepper creates the perfect Christmas drinks nibbles partner.
Garlic bulbs with Tasmanian Pepperleaves
Roasted Garlic with PepperleafGarlic done this way is so tasty, I usually leave the garlic cloves a little chunky to add to pasta, risotto, salads or garlic bread, you can always mill finer if needed
Try prawns or yabbies with this delicisou risotto with warragul greens and anise myrtle
Risotto with Warragul Greens and Anise MyrtleOptions…I also add some of my ROASTED GARLIC COOKED WITH PEPPERLEAF just before I add the seafood, a really tasty combo. This is one of my favourite ways to make risotto, I know a lot of the purists might object to putting in tasty cheese, but it’s my take on how I like it! Don’t skip the stock and just use water, the stock is such an important flavour base to this one.
Thai inspired with fresh coriander & ginger, but definately Australian with Sandalwood roasted nuts.
Sandalwood, Ginger & Chicken BallsMost people are familiar with Sandalwood incense sticks, oils, skincare products but have never try the beautiful nuts that this tree offers. The Sandalwood tree, Santalum spicatum is a native to Australia and has been eaten as a bushtucker food by the Aboriginal people for centuries.
Wattleseed whole and ground
Wattleseed & Yoghurt LoafI love the crunchy crust as you bite into this super moist loaf, you can spread it with butter if you want, but I usually just eat as is. Makes a great desert with mascapone and mixed berries. Pictured here is a traditional Aboriginal grinding stone showing fresh wattleseed and after it’s ground.
Bushtucker with tacos!
Outback Bush Lamb TacosNEILL'S RECIPE, AUSSIE RADIO SHOW *The Aussie Radio Show host, Neill Bartlett was inspired to create this recipe by the range of Outback Chef Bush Rubs - in particular the Bush Tomato Rub. The Outback Chef, Jude Mayall appears on The Aussie Radio Show, talking tucker and showcasing Aussie Bush food in a modern, contemporary and fun way!
Quandong & Rhubarb Pie for ChristmasQuick and Easy to make, delicious to eat Rhubarb is an age-old favourite in everyones garden, hopefully it will be again, it's a delicious addition to any cooking and I've added it with an Australian bushfood, Quandongs, to create a really unique and tasty pie.
Wattleseed whole and ground
Wattleseed TiramisuThis delicious desert had my guests wanting more. Best made the day before, to enable the flavours to move through the biscuits. Another great thing about this recipe is that by simmering the wattle seeds and using the flavoured liquid, the wattle seed paste that is left behind can be used for another recipe, ie wattle seed pasta.
quick and easy green salad
Simple Green SaladIt’s Friday night and I want quick and easy plus healthy for dinner, fish in a bag from the supermarket and a green salad. My Warragul Greens are looking great and a great addition to an iceberg lettuce.
