Banana pancakes are fluffy yet moist, incredibly easy to make and a wonderful morning treat. They only take about 10 minutes in total which means you can even make them for breakfast on a weekday morning. It is that easy to start your day with something delicious and nutritious, giving your body the kick-start it needs!
Whenever I have a little time on hand I like to make hummus from dried chickpeas as I love the extra creamy consistency and nuttiness of hummus made from these chickpeas. It does involve a bit more planning as they need to be soaked overnight and cooked until soft and tender but ultimately it is not much more work than making hummus from tinned chickpeas (which is a great alternative if you need something quick). It is one of my favourite Middle Eastern dips that can be served with different toppings and warm pita bread on the side.
Toro Toro in Doha is one of Mexican-born celebrity chef, Richard Sandoval’s restaurants which focuses on Pan Latin flavours. The food creations are a wonderful take on Latin American traditional recipes from Peru to Brazil and plays with the Asian influences on South Amercian cuisine. Already a huge fan of Peruvian food I was rather excited to enjoy a dinner at Toro Toro which has also branches in cities like New York, Mexico City and Acapulco to name just a few!
