• Groupon competition: what is your best travel recipe?

Hi everyone,

So as you know, I have been remotely blogging lately (and I mean remotely), while travelling the world.  It’s a tough life.  But sometimes in fact it is difficult to eat well on the road (if this is the only problem I have then I am doing very well).

Just one of the many amazing landscapes I have passed on my trip.
Yes.  That is a rainbow coming out of the glacier.

So I am hoping to get your ideas on the best dishes to make whilst travelling.  I learnt a great one in Hungary which was made from onions, tomatoes and paprika (chillies).  The onions were fried then all the ingredients were boiled together like a soup, or reduced like a stew.  Any other ingredients can be thrown in as you wish (for example carrots, eggplant, broccoli).  I loved this recipe as it was easy, didn’t require many ingredients and, most important of all, it was tasty.

The prize:
Groupon have agreed to give one lucky Nouveau Potato reader a $50 voucher as a prize.  Groupon has had some great restaurant deals in Melbourne but can also give you up to 90% off travel, spas, events and shopping all over Australia too.  So get your ideas together people and send me your best travel recipes!

Some tips:

  • I don’t have a full kitchen.  Most places don’t have ovens but have stoves.
  • The fewer ingredients the better, I am cooking for one person and it is often difficult to store left-overs.
  • Anything that makes me think of home will get special points.
  • Appetisers, snacks, mains and desserts are all welcome.
  • The recipe must be quick and easier (it is often hard to pin down time for use of the kitchen)
  • The ingredients must be easy to obtain at most supermarkets (eg.  in Europe it is hard to track down simple tofu).
  • Of course, the recipe must be vegetarian (goes without saying really).

How to enter:

  • Simply post your recipe as a comment below.
  • Like Nouveau Potato on Facebook.
  • Make sure there is a way for me to know who you are (ie, do not comment as anonymous and expect me to guess it is from you).

I look forward to reading all your ideas!
