The majority of South African fruit is grown in the Western Cape of the country. A combination of Mediterranean climate, steep hills and excellent soils helps produce some of the world’s most delicious and high-quality fruit.

How To Make A South African Energy Bowl

This bowl of good-for-you foods is perfect for an energy-boosting light lunch or sharing snack, with chunks of South African Packham or William pears and Pink Lady apples, with cooked quinoa, avocado, chunks of Red Leicester cheese and a few whole almonds. 


Recipe:

 Preparation: 10 minutes 

Cooking: 15 minutes 

 Serves: 4 

You Will Need:

100g red and white quinoa (or just use white) 

Pinch of salt 

1 South African Pink Lady apple, cored and sliced 

1 South African Packham or William pear, cored and sliced 

1 ripe avocado, peeled, pitted and sliced 

100g Red Leicester cheese, cut into chunks 

60g whole almonds 

A few pomegranate seeds 

Method:

 1. Rinse the quinoa, put it into a saucepan and cover with double the volume of cold water. Add a pinch of salt and cook gently for 10-15 minutes until tender. Drain in a sieve or colander and rinse with cold water to cool quickly.

Peach And Thyme Filo Tarte Tatin:

Today I am sharing a  recipe created by Nicola Millbank (using South African peaches, available in UK supermarkets until the end of April).

The flavour and quality of peaches from South Africa is exceptional due to the country’s sunshine, ideal climate and near perfect growing conditions.

South African fruit is also an ethical choice because of its role in developing the country in the last 20 years. South African Peach And Thyme Filo Tarte Tatin.

Nectarine Tarte Tatin:

This upside down tart is commonly made with apples but other fruits also work well – such as pears, plums, nectarines or peaches. It’s very easy to make, but you need to have the courage to let the nectarines caramelise, so let them cook slowly for enough time so that their juices blend with the butter and sugar.

You will also need a bit of courage to flip the tart over. You will need a 20cm (8 inch) frying pan that has an ovenproof handle. Nectarine Tarte Tatin.
