Here in ‘Straya, we have some unique tastes. People might be perplexed that our dishes are a bit “twisted.” Teehee.
As much as we love to eat, we also love to cook. We also love doing traditional Aussie recipes with a twist because that’s how we roll.
So here are some of the concoctions we have whipped up in our kitchens while we were looking for something out of the box:
Here are some 16 Aussie Recipes with a Twist!
1. All Green Fruit Skewers
If your kids don’t eat greens, put them on a stick! Since a whole apple or pear would be so easy to take the excitement of eating fruits, why not slice it into fun shapes and arrange it on a stick?
2. Mojito Lamingtons
Lamingtons are the ultimate Aussie treats. Merged with some lime flavour, the traditional lamington should get a Mexican twist! Zesty!
3. No-Bake Nutella Anzac Biscuit Cake
Anzac bikkies are defs Australian. Adding in some Italian twist with Nutella, you will surely enjoy some twisted sugar rush.
