This week I’m partnering up with Tabasco for a 10 ingredient challenge! Essentially, it’s 10 ingredients, 5 recipes. I absolutely love creating dishes when I have a limited number of ingredients. It’s one of my favourite games: what deliciousness can I make out of what’s in the pantry/fridge!? As much as I love grocery shopping, I loathe going out for specific ingredients, so I always pretend I’m in the Iron Chef Kitchen Stadium. Some of my best dishes have been created from using limited ingredients, so I was especially excited when I found out what the ingredient list was.

The ten ingredients were: Tabasco, swordfish/tuna, brioche, eggs, mint/basil/cilantro, dark chocolate, eggplant, cherry tomatoes, cider vinegar and maple syrup. Salt, pepper, oil and sugar were freebies. I’ll let you know right now that I cut the ingredient list down to 8 – I didn’t have any cider vinegar or maple syrup lying around so I just pretended it was an 8 ingredient challenge.

Eggs always make me think of deviling and ever since visiting Spain last year, I’ve been obsessed with eggs and tuna. I had some eggs stuffed with tuna at a tiny pintxos place in San Sebastian and these little guys reminded me of the hot summer nights, the endless beaches and the beauty of Spain.
