Recipe List for Uganda

I enjoy cooking and in Toronto I had a list of favourite online recipes that I would often revisit. Unfortunately most of them don’t work for Uganda because I can’t find certain ingredients. I enjoy getting fresh produce at the market and so try to get inspired by the foods that I can find. So now I am developing a repertoire of new recipes that work well in Uganda. Here are some recipes that I have tried so far that have worked well and I may revisit (they don’t make this list unless I have made them more than twice). I will probably be adding to this list as I continue to find more that I like.

Baked Veggies and Butter Tarts

I had a fun time last night cooking and baking. One of my favourite dishes to cook right now is just a mix of roasted vegetables. It takes an hour to make, but it’s an hour that I can spend doing homework while the veggies cook in the oven! I also made butter tarts for the first time. Because I have never made pie crust, I used a recipe I found for shortbread dough, and a high-rated recipe for the filling. I don’t like raisins so I tried a few with the plain butter filling, and a few with coconut. I think they turned out really well for a first try!
