Let’s talk bowls…and plates…and a couple of salads…

Bowls and bowls and more bowls…I love bowls…I eat every meal out of a bowl, and thanks to the lovely Gill from Sytch Farm Studios, I now have endless beautiful bowls to choose from 🙂 

If I use a plate, it tends to be a small one, like this gorgeous specimen..

As you can see, I am very much in love with my newest crockery, but that isn’t the only aim of this post…I also wanted to share some of the bowls of fabulousness that I’ve been producing recently…like these salads…

Above, this is a mix of quinoa, roasted aubergine flesh, and tomatoes with lots of my freshly made chermoula…

This was the salad before the addition of the quinoa…it was very tasty, even more so the next day! 

And then came this store cupboard/fridge clearance salad…

This is packed with goodness: quinoa, bulgur wheat, peas, toasted pumpkin seeds, dried barberries, chopped parsley and toasted slivered almonds, with a dressing of pomegranate molasses, olive oil, lemon juice and garlic, and all sprinkled with za’atar…

(See the plate?) 

The next day I used up the leftovers and boosted them with grated carrot, lettuce and a nut crumb..

Bowls and bowls of loveliness…and always even tastier enjoyed with a huge dollop of homous stirred through them…:) 

There has been more, lots more happening in my kitchen recently, but I’ll save them for next time and hope that the salads above have provided some inspiration…for now I’ll leave you with more plate fabulousness…

This beautiful hand painted plate was a gift from the lovely Linda for my birthday, along with the olive wood board underneath it, and both are absolutely gorgeous, I’m a very lucky girl 🙂 

Happy May everyone x
