This is quite a typical cycle of events in my kitchen, one dish becomes another, and the flavours develop and deepen, and it ends up being a million miles away from its starting form…so I thought I’d share the steps with you…almost like a window into my culinary brain…!!
Chunks of sweet potato, skin on, steamed and cooled
Chickpeas, a jar or can drained and washed
Chopped parsley, a small bunch, leaves stripped from the stalks and roughly chopped
Chopped coriander, a small bunch, leaves stripped from the stalks and roughly chopped
3 cloves garlic, roughly chopped
Goats cheese, chopped into small cubes
Paprika, 1-2 tsp
Aleppo chilli flakes, 1/2 tsp
Roasted ground cumin, 1-2 tsp
Olive oil, 2-3 tbsp
Lemon juice, 1-2 tbsp
All in a big bowl and stirred well to mix it all together and spread the herbs and spices through the bowl…lovely lovely stuff!
With the leftovers of the leftovers of these leftovers…
But of course, I couldn’t leave it, I just had to try blending some of this into a dip to see how it would taste…
Leftovers of leftovers of leftovers…of leftovers!!! ;)
Basically, everything can become something else…or…in the end everything becomes a dip!!!
I hope you’ve all had a good week full of great food and lovely leftovers, see you at fiesta friday…the weekly blog party extraordinaire
