Steak Sandwich

Everybody loves a good steak sandwich. Make sure you use the best quality meat that you can afford and cook it medium rare for the best results.


Serves 2

300g entrecote
2 ciabbata rolls
75g rocket
2 tomatoes
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
4 tablespoons olive oil
salt and pepper

Slice each tomato in four. Heat a grill pan. Drizzle the tomatoes and entrecotes with 2 tablespoons olive oil and season with salt and pepper.

Briefly grill the tomatoes on each side until lightly coloured. Set aside.

Grill the steak for about 1-2 minutes on each side until medium rare. Set the steak aside to rest.

Slice the ciabbata rolls open and lay, cut side down, on the grill until they are lightly toasted.

Spread 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard on each roll. Dress the rocket with 2 tablespoons olive oil and place on the rolls. Lay the tomatoes on top.

Thinly slice the entrecote into strips and lay over the tomatoes. Top with the remaining half of the ciabatta roll.


voor 2 personen

1 entrecote van 300 gr
2 ciabbata broodjes
75g rucola
2 tomaten
2 eetlepels Dijon mosterd
4 eetlepels olijfolie
zout en peper

Snijd beide tomaten in vier schijven. Verwarm een grillpan. Besprenkel de tomaten en entrecotes met 2 eetlepels olijfolie en breng op smaak met zout en peper.

Grill de tomaten kort aan beide kanten totdat ze licht gekleurd zijn. Zet ze op zij.

Grill de steak voor ongeveer 1-2 minuten aan elke kant voor medium rare. Zet de steak opzij om te laten rusten.

Snijd de ciabbata broodjes open en leg ze met de gesneden kant op de grill totdat ze licht geroosterd zijn.

Smeer elk broodje met 1 eetlepel Dijon mosterd in. Meng rucola aan met 2 eetlepels olijfolie en plaats de rucola op de broodjes. Leg de tomaten er bovenop.

Snijd de entrecote in reepjes en leg ze op de rucola. Plaats de andere helft van het broodje er bovenop.

Vegetarian Lunch

With more people choosing to eat consciously an opting more for vegetarian, it's always a good idea to a few recipes handy.

Here are two of our favourites for lunch.

Beetroot Hummus and feta sandwich:

Ingredients for the beetroot hummus
500 g cooked beetroot, roughly chopped
1 clove garlic, chopped
1 tin chickpeas, drained
pinch of ground cumin
pinch of cayenne pepper
1-2 tablespoons tahini
2 tablespoons olive oil
lemon juice, to taste
salt and pepper

Place the beetroot, garlic, chickpeas, cumin, cayenne and tahini in a food processor and blend all the ingredients are broken down. Add the olive oil (enough to make a smooth hummus), lemon juice to taste and season with salt and pepper.

To assemble the sandwiches, use a good bread of your choice. We like a sourdough spelt variety. Spread each slice liberally with the beetroot hummus. Top with some rocket leaves and generous scattering of a good feta.

Sweet Potato and Courgette Salad with Pear

1 head garlic
1 kg sweet potatoes
2 comice pears
1 red chilli
2 sprigs rosemary, finely chopped
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons sesame oil
3 courgettes
100 g hazelnuts
100 g baby spinach leaves

Preheat an oven to 200 C. Separate the garlic cloves from the head of garlic, leaving the skins on. Peel the sweet potatoes and cut into wedges. Finely chop the chilli, leaving in the seeds if you like it spicy and finely chop the rosemary.

Place the garlic cloves, sweet potato chilli and rosemary in a roasting pan and toss with the olive oil and 1 tablespoon of the sesame oil. Season with salt and pepper. Roast in the oven for about 20 minutes.

In the meantime, halve the pears, remove the core and cut each half into 6 slices. Cut the courgettes into quarters and then each quarter in half, so that you end you up with 8 pieces. Roughly chop the hazelnuts.

Add the pears, courgettes, hazelnuts, toss again and return to the oven for about another 20 minutes. Remove from the oven, add the remaining tablespoon of sesame oil, check the seasoning if it requires any more salt and pepper and mix through the baby spinach leaves.
