In my kitchen - February 2017
The top photo is Broccoli and spinach soup from Tinned Tomatoes. I tweaked it slightly to adjust to what was in the fridge. It was gloriously green and tasty but a lot thinner than I expected. So I put in some sushi seasoned rice on the first night. After that it thickened slightly and I enjoyed drinking it out of a mug.
tarts, I had a little leftover. It went into this most excellent salad roll with purple coleslaw, spinach, grated carrot.
orange baked tofu with beetroot and lentil salad, coleslaw, cherry tomatoes, and olives. A most pleasing meal.
And I want to point out the flowery headband in the photo. It was bought at Pumpkin Patch. I am quite sad about their stores closing. We had one day in the holidays where we managed to go to their closing down sales in both DFO and Highpoint and made quite a few bargain purchases, including the headband.
dangers of non-stick cookware recently has made me less comfortable with the wear and tear on the surface. This one claims to be PFOA free but it seems there are other chemicals to be aware of too.
curry made with this chickpea tofu. It was quite fortuitous finding this packet of tofu in the supermarket. Having read some of the comments, I am now keen to try making the tofu myself. But I have been saying that about soy tofu for years. One day ....
song and have eaten plenty of them. I can confirm that the orange creams are always the last to go. Though I don't know where the melting moments went! Also in the purchases are Cheezels, Barbecue Shapes (the Originals), Vegemite Cheeseybite snacks, and a pumpkin, caramelised onion and cashew dip that was nice.
vegan chicken nugget recipe last week. The artichoke and chickpea filling intrigued me. It was a lot of work for the crumbly nuggets that did not please Sylvia and did not taste much like chicken. Too much polenta in them I think which made them sandy textured. The only thing that pleased me was that I decided to use some sourdough starter in the recipe.
However the leftover nuggets were great when chopped up on a pizza with mushrooms, cherry tomatoes, cheese and rocket. One of the best pizzas I have made in quite some time.
