More of my super veggie dishes…and lots of goats cheese!! 

   

Taking photos of most of my meals as I do, they don’t all warrant an entire post to themselves, so here is a little collection of some recent dishes…

  

This was my lunch on Friday…

Half a large cauliflower, chopped into florets, sprayed with olive oil and roasted at 200C until cooked through with crunchy edges

3-4 heaped tablespoons of tomato kasundi sauce stirred through the cooked cauliflower

Goats cheese crumbled over the top and back into the oven to heat the sauce and warm the cheese 

    

The mix of flavours was lovely, the flavour of the tomato kasundi has developed since making it a few weeks ago and is probably tastier now than when I first made it. 

  

Yesterday’s lunch was an amalgamation of shashuka of sorts…My husband and I had been to the market and I had a kitchen piled high with beautiful fresh produce; we were both hungry so each made ourselves our personal versions of a perfect lunch: he made himself sausage sandwiches; I made myself this…our integral differences in one meal!! I never eat sandwiches, they just don’t inspire me at all, I find them highly dissatisfying, over and gone in no time at all – let alone the fact that I rarely eat bread! 

My lunch dish…

A pile of baby plum tomatoes, halved, drizzled with olive oil and cooked in a pan 

1 long red pepper, cubed, and added to the tomatoes

2-3 heaped tablespoons of my homemade harissa stirred into the tomatoes & peppers 

2 eggs cooked into the mixture + some crumbled goats cheese over the top 

  

Yesterday I made this Saag recipe from Whitbits Kitchen: it’s a lovely dish, packed full of spinach, kale, greens and spices. It’s so tasty! This morning the leftovers made a great brunch along with roasted tomatoes (as per my last post), fried eggs and the final remains of the goats cheese!!! 

 

Just a little peak into my meals 🙂

I hope you’re all having a great start to the week, see you on Wednesday with this week’s ‘What would you feed me?’ guest post…another absolute winner xx

    [swoon …]
    Downunder I can buy only two kinds of goat’s cheese: the really soft and spreadable kind, and imported hard (really hard !) kind. Nowhere have I found the kind you can ‘scatter’. Either our local producers limit themselves to what they think is asked for, or the output I seek is in those unspeakably expensive specialist delis – which means I couldn’t afford it.
    Grrrrrrr …

      Very ‘grrrrrrrrrr’….what a shame! The one I use is very mild and it is soft but also crumbly. We have about 5 different types in our local supermarket, maybe it isn’t called for so much where you are?

    I share your love for cauliflower… I can easily eat a whole head! PS- I had no idea what tomato kasundi sauce was, but after I read your previous post I’d love to give that recipe a go! Those flavors are right up my alley too. It’s ironic you mentioned that blog post don’t always warrant epic write-ups; I just mentioned this very same thought to someone the other day! I like short snippets It’s real. Thanks for the recipe ideas, Elaine! Yum!

      Thank you so much, Emilie, for all of your lovely words and encouragement 🙂 sometimes I’m concerned that I’m not posting full recipes, but then I hope that I’m offering ideas and inspiration, and sharing some of my world and my meals – isn’t that what it’s all about after all?
      Have a good day xx
