Good Christmas recipes

Now that Christmas is around the corner, it’s a safe time to get those boxes of decorations from your attic, garage or wherever else you’ve stored them. If you are away from home, you are likely to either miss mom’s homemade pie or the giant stockings that your dad always hung outside your room. If you are with your family – there’s nothing better than that! Memorize the carols you’ve learnt at school and get ready for the bells to toll. However, doesn’t all this seem a little empty without the delicacies that you can enjoy at this time? Well, here are some easy recipes you can try this time to add a different flavour to Christmas.

1. Carrot and coriander soup

This soup is firstly made with the colours of Christmas! It is extremely healthy and is a great way to start your sumptuous meal. All you need are some carrots and coriander of course along with an onion, salt, pepper and some vegetable stock. These are things available at the market closest to you! It takes around 35-40 minutes to make but it is enough to kickstart your dinner. Try some breadsticks as accompaniments. Don’t forget the final touch of coriander as garnish!

2. Pumpkin cheesecake

Pumpkin is something that is synonymous with the spirit of Christmas. Anything made with pumpkin acquires a very traditional taste. This is something you can enjoy with our family as a whole. While making the cake might take time, it is really worth the effort. Cooking this with one or more member from your family should be fun too. You will need the basics – cream cheese, sugar, eggs, whipped cream and pumpkin of course. See the whole recipe here – http://allrecipes.com/recipe/pumpkin-cheesecake-ii-2/detail.aspx.

4. Tequila hot chocolate

What the hell is a tequila hot chocolate? It’s your very own Christmas drink! Add some flavour to good old tequila and transform it for this festive season. You’ll need around 10-15 ml of tequila (depending on your taste) and around 3 spoons of hot cocoa mix. Get half a cup of coffee liqueur and a dollop of whipped cream for the final touch. Mix the tequila, cocoa and coffee liqueur in a nice cup and make sure you stir well. Your Christmas cocktail is now ready! Put a dollop of whipped cream on top and add a little bit of chocolate sauce to it too. Serve with gingerbread biscuits or have it plain! It’s a great drink to give guests also.
