Try this easy-does-it Easter braai menu

This Easter, take your entertaining outside with this delicious, easy-does-it braai menu. Because who wants to spend all day in the kitchen when you can live it up outside with family and friends?


Sizzling starter

Add exotic tomatoes to a braai pan and drizzle with olive oil. Add a few cloves of garlic and grill on the braai until the tomatoes start to burst and blister. When they’re slightly soft, add fresh basil and sizzle a bit, then remove the pan from the braai and serve on double cream plain yoghurt. Drizzle with those delicious pan juices and scatter with baby herbs.

The crowd-pleaser

Take one Woolworths Easy to Cook Leg of Lamb and cook according to the package instructions – then add a twist by grilling it on the braai for some extra smokey flavour. Grill on each side for a couple of minutes. Remove when the lamb has a nice chargrilled crust. Leave to rest. Halve stone fruit like nectarines and plums, or seasonal fruit like figs, drizzle with honey and grill cut-side down until caramelised. Serve with fresh mint and fennel fronds.

Sneaky salad plot twist

For the ultimate braai salad, halve just ripe avocados, rub with olive oil and grill cut-side down on a medium braai for a few minutes until slightly charred. Serve with torn fior di latte, rocket, mixed olives and marinated artichokes. Dress with balsamic vinegar and good olive oil and dig in!
