EasyOven™ Cultures: Australia

Visualize this: an Australian day that refuses to go below 30°C, a driveway that is so hot you have to wear shoes to get your post, a pool that serves more as a spa than a refreshing lagoon and an electricity bill that is twice the price of the previous month because without an air conditioner you would shrivel like a sultana whilst watching your favourite episode of Great British Bake Off.

If you are living in Australia, particularly Queensland, New South Wales and South Australia, you will know what I am talking about, so when it comes to providing dinner every night regardless of the weather you are a bit stuck (A cold salad just wont do!).

To help I have compiled a really simple, fail-safe recipe that will make sure you spend as little time as possible near a hot plate but is also delicious and hearty. This is one of my staples and it fills up my teenagers too!

2 Cups Boiling Water
