I don’t have photos for most of them as the food has been eaten too quickly but I do have some, and I can tell you about the recipes and hope you might find them interesting enough to pop over and check them out yourself…
I made these ‘lavash’ flatbreads yesterday, from a new blog to me, to accompany a mezze dinner with my boys, they were really good. The recipe calls for seed oil so I used some of the pumpkin seed oil that I bought the first time I met Selma; my son didn’t know this, and suddenly whilst eating the bread he commented that it tasted nutty! I was stunned! He’s really getting a good palette 🙂
They ate the breads with my shish taouk, cauliflower nirvana and a range of dips and roasted vegetables – great big yum!
This evening, I made them Angie’s chicken kebabs, some ‘man salad’ (cooked and cooled pasta, grated carrot, grated cheese, chopped lettuce and my homemade mayo) dips and these gorgeous falafels..
These are an amalgamation of two recipes that I read recently, one from Ronit and one from Sadia. I mainly followed Sadia’s recipe, although I added spinach as I didn’t have any coriander and parsley, but I utilised both of their tips, and oven baked them as per Ronits recipe. And they were SO GOOD!!!!! I served a selection of dips and sauces again, and more of my own green goodness sauce with grated carrot…a dinner full of serious flavour!
Last Sunday I went down an Indian route and followed Sadia’s do pyaza recipe, using chicken for my men, plus several of Whitneys recipes from Whitbits Kitchen: spinach, kale & spring greens saag, mushroom masala, chapatis and the samosa burger recipe minus the breadcrumbs to make a potato and pea side dish. What a feast!!! Such great flavours from great recipes 🙂
During the week I thoroughly enjoyed this fava bean salad from another new blog..
And I made Tabithas homemade ketchup and added my own chipotle en abode sauce to create a mexican inspired ketchup for myself.
All of these have been made in amongst my daily loaves of homemade bread and my endless other dishes and meals, and people ask me what I do all day….!!!!! Hmmmm…..
I’ve loved trying out some new reicpes and being inspired by my fellow bloggers – thank you all xx
Here’s some shots from my walk today and I’ll see you on Wednesday with a cracking guest post from another fabulous fellow blogger..
