I'm trying out this use-multiple-instances idea, and this is where I'm planning on putting my food/gardening posts!
I don't have a camera at the moment, but I have a lot of older food photography and I like writing out recipes for stuff I cook. I'll be dumping that stuff here when I get the urge.
If anyone is able to fill me in on conventions used in this instance (manners, common hashtags, etc.) I'd really appreciate it!
@nessotropheion Use them as hummus scoops? They're also pretty good in a mixed root vegetable roast.
The classic French thing is to slice them almost in half, put some butter in the middle, and dip them in salt. I like them sliced onto buttered bread instead though.
If they came with leaves, make pesto.
Cooking the past few days:
— Plain + Banana-Nutella + Ham & Cheese Crepes (thanks @sherbet_marcuse !!!)
— Banana Raita
— Green Lentil Salad with cucumber, tomato, bell pepper, green onion, cilantro, lemon, and olive oil
— Roasted Smashed Potatoes
— Hot & Sour Ramen with cabbage and green onions (w/partner)
So far I've harvested over 2kg of broad beans from my (under) 1m x 2m raised beds. Probably still have another 1kg that I should be able to harvest.
Not sure if this is considered a high yield or not, but I'm very happy with it.
This lot (in the photo) is getting frozen so I have a treat later on in the year.
Holy. crap. not a white woman recipe! https://www.hithaonthego.com/chilled-spinach-soup/
Delicious! Heck of a great way to eat a crapton of spinach.
incidentally is #keto, if you're into that!
I have scans of the #Recipes I'm using for the Chickpea Flour Pancakes ("World Vegetarian", Jaffrey) and Lamb with Apricots ("Indian", Hermes House), the other things mentioned above I either don't use a recipe or it's not easily accessible right now
My mom and her husband are visiting tomorrow night, so today I made:
— Cucumber Raita
— Banana Raita
— Besan Pancakes with peas, ginger, and sesame
— Spearmint-Ginger Iced Tea
Tomorrow I will make:
— Dried Apricot and Beef Curry
— Yellow Rice
— Steamed Snap Peas
And I'll dig out of the fridge/pantry:
— Cilantro Chutney
— Sweet Pickles
— Fresh Apricots, Peaches, and Raspberries
This should hopefully be enough of a spread that all four of us can eat and I'll have some leftovers 😅
