Ahh, Bank Holiday weekends. The perfect time to relax, catch up with friends, cook amazing food, and all without making a dent in your holiday allowance! Bank Holidays should be about spending quality time together, so while you want to treat yourself and your nearest and dearest to some delicious grub, there’s no need to spend hours slaving away in the kitchen away from all the action. These 4 quick and easy recipes will make sure you can enjoy a tasty weekend of food and make the most of your time off!

BBQ Rub and Guacamole
 


 

If the weather holds up (fingers crossed) then a big family BBQ is the perfect option for a meal everyone’s sure to enjoy. These 2 easy recipes, made using the Morphy Richards Blend Express Complete Nutrition and Total Control Hand Blender Pro Set, will be the icing on the cake (or the salad on the bun) for your BBQ repertoire.

To make an extra tasty and super versatile BBQ rub using the Morphy Richards Blend Express Complete Nutrition, you’ll need:

  • 4 tbsp celery salt
  • 4 tbsp hot paprika
  • 1 tbsp light brown soft sugar

  • 1 tbsp freshly ground black pepper
  • Half tbsp garlic powder
  • Half tbsp onion powder
  • Half tbsp dried thyme
  • Half tbsp cayenne pepper


Download the method on the Morphy Richards Cook & Create App.

Try using the marinade on deliciously succulent BBQ ribs, yum! One of the best bits of the BBQ (apart from the smell of the hot coals) is all the condiments you get to add to your grub to make your burger or hotdog exactly how you like it. We love a generous dollop of limey guacamole on ours. To make your own guacamole using the Total Control Hand Blender Pro Set, you’ll need:

  • 75g cherry tomatoes
  • Half a red chilli de seeded
  • 65g fresh coriander
  • 1 avocado, halved, stoned and skin removed 
  • 1 lime
  • salt and pepper to taste 

You can also find out all the steps needed to whip up your guacamole on the app.
