I don’t know about you but there’s something about the cold winter days that makes me want to spend longer in the kitchen. Usually baking something unhealthy (but tasty) like cakes laden with lemon icing or chocolate something or other. I haven’t completely stopped making that kind of thing but I am trying to err more on the healthy side.
So I thought I’d share a little of what’s been going on in my kitchen lately.
I made a North african squash and chickpea stew from River Cottage Veg Everyday by Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall (bit of a tongue-twister that one). I got this book for Christmas. Loads of recipes I would like to make from here in my bid to eat/cook more healthily.
I made this warm kale salad, stir-frying some kale with chopped baked potatoes, and adding a dressing: natural yoghurt, lemon zest and juice, pepper, garlic paste, chopped chilli and a little grated cheese all shook up in a jam jar and dotted over. Kale is probably my favourite of all vegetables these days. I only discovered it few years ago, so I have to make up for all the lost years of living without it.
And an apple pie, of which I shall not show you a picture of the cooked result, as I burnt the top of it just a tinge. It looked very pretty indeed before it was cooked, so we’ll focus on that if you don’t mind.
Lastly in my kitchen, here is my Christmas cactus. Flowering at last in January, but well worth the wait.
So, what’s been going on in your kitchen lately, any tasty ideas to share?
