Celebrate with a Feast of Flavour this Father’s Day with Westfalia Fruit
Father’s Day is around the corner and we know that you want to do something special to spoil your hardworking dad or father figure. There’s no better way than with a home-cooked meal that you’ve prepared with love. We’ve used the Westfalia range of avocado oils and guacamoles to create four recipes that we know dads will want to tuck into.
Cook a Father’s Day Feast
Don your apron, gather your ingredients and send dad a calendar invite, he’s not going to want to miss this.
Cheesy Quesadillas with Roasted Tomato Salsa & Guacamole
Quesadillas are a south-of-the-border classic and these ones are full of all of those recognisable flavours. We’ve doubled up with two types of cheese for meltiness and flavour, added in red peppers, black beans and charred sweet corn for texture. Pickled jalapeños add heat and we round that off with a deliciously smokey homemade tomato salsa.
No Tex-Mex dish would be complete without the cooling creaminess of avocado, so we’re serving this dish with Westfalia’s Plain Guacamole. Dollop generously on top and finish with a squeeze of fresh lime. Our recommendation? Make extras, these quesadillas are so moreish and always disappear fast!
Braaied Rump Steak Kebabs with Pickled Onion Chimichurri
South African dads love to stand around a fire, that’s a fact. This Father’s Day give dad a break from the coals and let him just enjoy a beer and some banter while you prepare this delish dish. We’ve threaded generous chunks of rump steak onto skewers, brushed with Westfalia Garlic Flavoured Avocado Oil and then braaied to perfect medium-rare.
Paired with these kebabs is a seriously punchy pickled onion chimichurri, a herby oil-based sauce. Westfalia Plain Avocado Oil is the ideal neutral base to allow the flavours of the herbs, onion and chilli in the chimichurri to really stand out. Drizzle generously over the beef and watch dad tuck in.
Chipotle Chilli Con Carne with Guacamole
Since Father’s Day falls squarely in the middle of winter, this con carne is just the ticket if the weather closes in. It’s full of smokey flavour from the chipotle and a bowlful (or two) of this chilli is the winter warmer that everyone needs! Chilli like this is often even better the next day, so consider doubling up the recipe and having spares for bestovers (tip: you can even freeze in portions for a night when you don’t feel like cooking).
Chilli con carne and guacamole are soulmates, so serve this dish with scoops of Westfalia Plain Guacamole, coriander and toppings like baby tomatoes, pickled jalapeños and a sprinkle of cheese. We love scooping up this con carne with crunchy nacho chips, which are at their best if you warm them in the oven for a few minutes right before serving.
Pan-fried Calamari with Lemon Mayonnaise & Guacamole
Embrace a seaside holiday-kind-of-feel with this dish. We’ve pan-fried calamari tubes and tentacles with ingredients that build layers of flavour – chillies, olives, capers and parsley create a complex tasting dish that’s surprisingly easy to make. Whisk dad off on a Greek Island hopping holiday with this plate of food, no passport required!
To add in a citrusy element we’ve made a lemon mayonnaise with Westfalia Lemon Flavoured Avocado Oil, which works as an accompaniment to the calamari. You can even serve it with a side of fries. We’ve also added Westfalia Spicy Guacamole to add another layer of flavour to the dish and to up the heat element. If dad likes spicy food, he’ll love the balance of heat and flavour in this dish.
