Four recipes that intrigue me
I’ve seen a lot of fabulous recipes online recently, but these four have particularly stayed with me. They’re all simple, but intriguing. Tasty looking and really interesting ways of using ingredients. So I thought I’d share them with you:
- Tomato and pomegranate molasses salad: Lucy posted this Sam and Sam Clark recipe recently and it’s absolutely outstanding. I made it with some cherry tomatoes and the flavours were divine. It’s rich, sharp and yet also sweet. The leftovers were brilliant the next day, tossed through pasta.
- Cornbread and jalapeno muffins: I’ve never thought of putting chillies in muffins, but when coupled with cornmeal it definitely makes sense. Lovely savoury muffin recipe from Martha Rose Shulman.
- Oat and seed salad toppers: I love this idea from Oh She Glows. I haven’t made them yet, but think they’d be useful – a simple, crunchy and delicious way to add interest and extra nutrition to salads, soups and breakfast
- Baked lemon and herb tofu: just as I think there can’t possibly be any ways to cook tofu that I haven’t tried, along comes this lovely idea from Sophie at Mostly Eating. You coat the tofu in a herby, citrus paste, top each with a lemon slice and then bake in the oven. Genius idea and it looks pretty too. Sophie serves with a Double Citrus Salad.
This weekend I’m heading down to Victoria for a few weeks, on a road trip to visit The Grampians. So I’ll be back on Limes and Lycopene in April.
