Recipes to start your day with Qukes®

Breakkie and brunch is a wonderful way to begin the day! The most important meal, some would say; and who are we to argue? We've developed some scrumptious recipes for you to slip into your 'good morning' repertoire...your most difficult task will be deciding which to choose. 

  • Treat your guests (or yourself) to tangy pickled Qukes® spears added to a juicy and indulgent Bloody Mary. More than a garnish, these will have people asking for seconds, so make sure to have plenty in the fridge. These are great by the pool or at the beach, and also travel well in jars. 

  • Add a bit of protein to your table with these moreish smoked salmon Qukes® boats. Light and just right for the beginning of the day, a platter of these morsels go a long way and won't leave anyone feeling overly full. Energy? Tick. Flavour? Tick.

  • We also love the texture of a really good Qukes® bruschetta. Our recipe shows you four ways to have it, so everyone is satisfied no matter their food preferences. Simply get your favourite crusty bread and be prepared to wow with this presentation. No one has to know how easy it was; we won't tell!

Recipes for light lunches full of flavour 

Lunch doesn't have to be the same old same old. Take advantage of what's in season and lay your table with wholesome food full of the nutrients your body needs. Of course, we have recipes to get you inspired. 

  • Treat your tastebuds to our Qukes®, tomato, and Vietnamese chicken salad. Simple and fresh, this can be served as a side with crackers or flatbread, or as a meal on its own.  

  • Salad lovers, rejoice! You'll want to make this one ASAP. Qukes® baby cucumbers, quinoa, and pomegranate seeds combine to deliver a tart and mouth-watering main meal to which you can add a protein, or eat it as is. Substitute the feta cheese for a plant-based version, and you have yourself a powerhouse vegan dish. 

  • Sometimes, the best things are the simplest things. The humble sandwich for instance. Whip up a batch of tinned tuna with fresh mayo and add cracked pepper, sea salt and a purple or green lettuce leaf for our Qukes® tuna and mayo sandwich. If you're keen to fancy them up, remove crusts with a sharp knife and cut them into triangles or use a circular metal cookie cutter.
