but sounds mighty tasty.
Spicy chickpea soup for supper last night. Cut up some onions, carrots and celery and softened them in olive oil. Stirred in a mixture of lots of cumin and a little coriander powder and a dash of turmeric, chilli flakes and ginger. Salt and lots of black pepper. Added a couple of cans of chick peas and a lot of lemon juice.
Then I went to the fridge for a pot of delicious golden chicken stock made the day before and poured it in to the mixture..
THAT was not the chicken stock ....it was a pot of juice extracted from the golden plums we had picked in the morning! Duh…curried sour plum and chickpea soup anyone? Any hope that this was a new culinary discovery were dashed when I tasted it...not good.
Quickly drained off the plum juice and washed the chick peas and veg under the tap. Made up a new spice mixture and started again, this time with the real chicken stock. Slow cooked for 20 minutes, 30 seconds with the hand blender…a dash more lemon juice and pepper.
For a salad: painted some some aubergine (eggplant) slices with olive oil and grilled them. Added cherry tomatoes from the garden, thin sliced white onions, chopped garlic and a mass of fresh chopped parsley, coriander, thyme and basil. A final drizzle of olive oil, loads of balck pepper and a pinch of sea salt.
Dinner in the garden with some fresh bread and a glass or two of rose wine.
Delicious..but I’m gonna have to pick some more plums today.
anybody out there make their own cheese and got advice about how to do so??
yup, yummy in my tummy.
I use the fat free milk and the sugar free pudding, because I gotta watch my weight.
heaven knows, everybody else can't help but seeing it. ( -;
Yummy in my tummy, and in a frozen fruit slushie....
brain freeze anyone??
Hey CCJ them homemade raisinettes sound yummy too :)
I was missin' them raisinets I used to have at the movie shows all those years ago.
so, I am making homemade Rasinets. Raisons covered with chocolatte. I am using sugar free pudding and fat free milk, putting raisins in it, then freezing the choco-raisin clumps for later. couldn't really take the time to try to sepaerate the raisnis and make them individual, but figure the clumps will be just fine, too.
we'll probably have them as we contine our way through the complete Seinfeld DVD collection, up to season 8 now.
thanks for the explanation on hard flour. Here they just call it bread flour, pretty much, from what I've seen.
