This hearty soup is a meal in itself and has tons of flavor from the turkey sausage and dried spices. Lentils add a lovely texture and depth to the soup while spinach pumps up the health factor.

 

Glazed “Pap and Wors” Kebabs with Tomato Dip

Boerewors (boor-uh-vors) - literally means ‘farmers sausage’ in Afrikaans. A savoury sausage developed by the farmers some 200 years ago. Spiced predominantly with coriander, nutmeg, salt and pepper. If you are unable to get Boerewors then your favourite delicately spiced beef sausage will still do the trick. Pap ( 'pup') is known as mielie meal or maize meal in south Africa. Once this corn meal is mixed with water and boiled until firm (almost like Polenta) it starts taking on it’s characteristic ‘pap’ form. 'Pap and wors' served with a savoury tomato sauce is South African food at its most traditional ! This recipe is a simple twist on traditional “pap & wors”. The novelty being that the boerewors and mealie ‘pap’ are threaded onto a stick, glazed and then braaied (grilled on the BBq). The only problem with this finger friendly way of serving the 'pap and wors' is the braaier (griller) and his friends stand around the fire chatting, sipping on beers and eating the kebabs before they even get to the table! So you may as well give them the dipping sauce upfront!
