I love to experiment with new flavours and to try out new cuisines on a regular basis. Its exciting and I never get bored of cooking.
Growing up in a South African Indian home, chilli powder and turmeric were the staple spices in most dishes. As flavourful as these spices are, I have started to experiment with new spices and tastes in my kitchen. I do love my Indian curries and I will be posting my favourite traditional dishes, but with a Walnut Pesto twist, of course.
There are so many different and amazing spices, flavours and cuisines in the international food world that we have not tried yet. I want to introduce you to new flavours and aromas and show you how to incorporate them into your daily cooking. It is also important to introduce your kids to different flavours and tastes through the use of mild spices and herbs.
This pasta rice salad was a spur of the moment Mexican idea. I was bored of the usual pasta salad that I usually make, so I wanted to think up a new fresh and flavourful dish. Pasta salads are a family favourite in my home and they make a perfect light summers day lunch or a perfect side dish at a barbecue or picnic.
I hope you and your family enjoy the new flavours in this dish and you can look forward to a lot more different flavour combinations on your culinary journey with Walnut Pesto
