Your Weekly Feed #26 the multicultural one



I turned another year older this week, a rather nothing age but was spoilt by new friends and family so was a special day.  My Mum gave me a pasta maker attachment for my Kitchen Aid so stay tuned for homemade pasta recipes (thanks Mum). I was also very spoilt with a new camera so no more blurs in my photo’s from the scratches in the lense, yay (as soon as I work out how to use it properly anyway!)

Kim & I were thrilled with all the delicious recipes linked up last week and for all the lovely comments too, thank you.

I’ve decided to pick recipes for this weeks Your Weekly Feed that fit into a multicultural theme because there seemed to be a few linked up last week and I’ve got one myself tonight.

Sammie of The Annoyed Thyroid gave went Indian with this Easy Beef Curry which I had to pick because Easy. Beef. Curry!

Shari from Good Food Week linked up Nasi Goreng to bring a taste of Indonesia to the table, it’s so much easier than I thought!

While I normally only pick 2 meals, this week I’ve slipped in an extra one because it’s a Beef Nachos Bowl from Kim at Land of Zonkt and by now you probably know of my love of all things to do with corn chips and I thought we could add a little Mexican to the mix!

I’m also thinking Indonesian/ Thai with a dose of greens…I have been talking about making my own satay sauce for 2 years now, ever since a fabulous girls trip to Bali where we had it on everything. We were going to have a “satay sauce off” when we got home but …didn’t!  So now exactly 2 years on I have finally made it, yay! I liked it so much I ate the leftover sauce by itself for lunch the next day, I probably shouldn’t share that but it was really good.  And to the ladies from the Bali trip the gauntlet has been thrown down, how do you rate this one?

Satay Chicken Skewers on Steamed rice with veggies.


Satay Chicken Skewers with steamed rice & veggies


  • 500g sliced chicken breast or tenderloins
  • 400 g can coconut milk
  • 2 Tbs tamari or soy sauce
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp curry powder
  • 1 tsp tumeric
  • 3 Tbsp honey
  • 200g crunchy peanut butter
  • 3 Tbsp lime juice
  • 2 C brown rice
  • 1 head broccoli, cut into small florets
  • 1/2 head cauliflower, cut into small florets (optional)
  • 1 carrot, thinly sliced
  • 1 zucchini, thinly sliced
  • 2 spring onions, finely sliced
  • 1/4 C dessicated coconut (optional)
  • extra limes for serving


  1. Combine the coconut milk, soy sauce, garlic, curry powder, tumeric & honey in a dish, add the chicken bits and coat all of them then marinate in the fridge for at least 3 hours or overnight.
  2. Soak bamboo skewers for about 30 minutes (so that they don't burn in the oven)
  3. Cook rice as per packet instruction
  4. Preheat the oven grill
  5. Thread the marinated chicken onto the skewers and reserve the marinade.
  6. Pour the reserved marinade into saucepan, add the peanut butter, stir through and bring to the boil, cook on a medium heat for about 5 minutes and add the lime juice and coconut (optional) at the end and stir through
  7. Grill the chicken for 3 - 4 minutes on each side
  8. Steam, boil, microwave or add to the rice cooker the veggies to cook through
  9. Mix the rice & veggies together and put into serving dishes, top with the chicken skewers and then pour over as much satay sauce as you like over the top.
  10. Add lime wedges to the plate for an extra squeeze if you want it
  11. Enjoy!

If you are short on time you could always use a pre-made satay sauce (which is what I had been doing for the last 2 years but now no more!).  This is a really easy and tasty mid week meal and satay sauce soup for lunch the next day is totally a thing too isn’t it!!!

Now it’s time to pop on over to Land of Zonkt and check out Kim’s picks and what’s she’s been making for Your Weekly Feed (also check out her soon to be launched e-book, it’s full of amazing salads).

    Hope your birthday was absolutely fabulous and that the fabulous lasts all year long! That satay looks delicious! We went to a cooking school in Bali and came back with a whole heap of recipes that are on my To-Make list but a year on, there hasn’t even been a taste of Bali. I think you’ve inspired me!
