Welcome to What’s Cooking with Charly! I’m Charlotte Rose Miller and I turned two in February. I love cooking all kinds of yummy food and I have very big thoughts about food and the places I eat. My mom says she will help me tell you all about my cooking and about the good restaurants where they understand that WE small humans are the most important. I got the BEST present from a place called Nature’s Farms a few weeks ago and they asked me to join the #NaturesFarmsChallenge! The challenge was to cook something proudly South African with a twist with all their GREAT food. They sent a whole basket of yummy things – pastas and flours and biscuits!!
Nature’s Farms is a GWK brand and it is very special because it looks after our world by recycling water and saving energy. And the nice farmers who grow the produce and deliver it to the mills, own GWK Farm Foods, so it is always the same and the best! The food is all proudly South African, just like me!
Occasionally you may see big man hands in the photos. That is my soux chef, Daddy. He does all the boring stuff like cutting and frying so I can focus on the creativity of cooking! I thought a lot about what I wanted to cook, and decided on my very favourite meal!
Spaghetti and boerewors meatballs in tomato sauce!
WHAT YOU NEED
Nature’s Farms Spaghetti
Your favourite boerewors
2 Large big brown mushrooms
1 Fresh garlic
2 Large onions
1 Bottle of tomato Passata
Fresh Italian Parsley
WHAT YOU DO
Get your soux chef to:
Chop your onions, garlic, mushrooms and parsley.
Fry off the onions and garlic (keep a close eye on everything!)
Fry off the mushrooms.
Remove the skin from the boerewors.
Cut the boerewors into sections.
Then for the fun parts!
Roll each section of boerewors into a lovely round meatball.
Add the Passata to the cooked onions, garlic and mushrooms.
Get your soux chef to brown your meatballs.
Add the browned meatballs, chopped parsley and black pepper into the sauce.
Put it all into the pressure cooker for 20 minutes.
After 10 minutes, get your soux chef to put your Nature’s Source spaghetti in salted boiling water. It needs to boil for between 8 and 10 minutes, or until it is the way you like it!
Dish it all up!
Savour every bite!
Thank you so much Nature’s Farms for the yummy food! I plan on making lots more of my favourites with all your pastas. If you want to see what my mom’s friends came up with for this campaign, you can search #NaturesFarmsChallenge or keep an eye on the GWK Facebook page.
