I must say the meals that aren’t planned are always the best. Fridge raid produced this mixed bag and it was mighty.
-Pomegranate, basil, green onion and tomato salad
-Cauliflower, pear and chilli salad with a satay dressing
-Avocado tartare with mixed jalapeños
-Hummus crisps for dipping
-Leftover soup from yesterday.
Oh and of course lashings of Rebel Chilli on the side mmm….
Handful of basil leaves
Chopped green onion
Chopped cherry tomatoes
Seeds from half a pomegranate
Drizzle of olive oil
Squeeze of lime
Teaspoon of agave
Warm cauliflower salad:
Cut off your florets from your cauliflower into bit size pieces
I just steamed these until soft and tender but you can bake or boil too.
Add mixed nuts, seeds and chilli flakes
2 pears finally chopped
Satay sauce for pouring over this yummy combo
For the sauce:
2 tbls of Peanut butter
1 clove of Garlic
1/4 of an onion
Juice of half a lime
Splash of soy sauce
Squeeze of agave
Sprinkle of chillies
1/2 tin of coconut milk (I used a little more here)
Fry off the garlic and onion and then pop everything into the blender
Blitz and then adjust seasoning to your liking. It’s great hot or cold
There are so many variations of this out there but this is the version that suits my spice hungry mouth the best ha ha.
1/2 chopped red onion
5 green jalapeños and 5 red jalapeños finely chopped (cut way back on this if you’re not a heat fan but this is quite a large serving so you don’t taste them too much)
Generous pour of rapeseed oil
Juice of half a lemon
Generous bunch of parsley roughly chopped
Splash of soy sauce
Mustard! I used wholegrain hear as I love the flavour and crunch
Handful of capers roughly diced
And finally add
4 avocados peeled and chopped into a bowl
Adjust seasoning by adding plenty of pepper and a pinch of so of salt.
Pop into mould of choice. I just grabbed a round plastic bowl I had beside me and flipped it onto the serving plate.
Ideal for sharing!
My cousin in Chicago made an absolutely delicious avocado tartare a few months ago when I was visiting and it reignited my love for it since. I served it up with eat real hummus chips because they are yum and naughty and perfect for scooping
Finally a few bowls of mushroom soup that was leftover from the night before. You’ll be able to find the recipe for this on here also
