Recipes for the week starting 12th March
This Sweetcorn Soup with roasted cherry tomatoes captures summer just as it leaves us ... Corn, garlic, cumin, onion, tomatoes, bayleaf to deepen the flavour... Is very good. Vegan, GF and DF
The Buckwheat with pumpkin and apricot has a bit of a North African flavour - cinnamon, dried apricots, mint... I really like the nuttiness of the buckwheat and it goes very well in this context. Vegan, DF and GF
This one is definitely North African influenced! It has eggplant, chickpeas, chilli and Lebanese 7 spice (and tomato, parsley...) It's a very satisfying meal - kinda soup but kinda not - have it with flat bread or rice or a spoon... Eggplant and Chickpea Stew, is vegan, DF and GF
The cauliflower and broccoli bake looks like it has cheese in it (and it could have, up to you) the but recipe uses egg and lemon to make a light and delicious sauce that goes really well with those brassicas! Vegetarian, DF and GF
Lately there have been a few days that called for comfort food, and this Chicken and Mushroom pie definitely fits the bill! Topped with potato, room for secret veg in the filling. Very warming and comforting... GF only
Why was I thinking about Pork and Beans? I really don't know, but this is the result. I've used chorizo to give spice and heat - you could use andouille sausage if you can find it, would also be excellent. The longer you cook this one the better it gets, so it's perfect for set and forget in the slow cooker. Uses butterbeans which are big and meaty; a splash of white wine, some tomato... I've served it here with a chunky mash. DF and GF.
