Kung pao cauliflower and fried vegetables. I was stuck with a cauliflower and wanted something a bit different and found a recipe – https://circusgardener.com/2015/08/15/kung-pao-cauliflower/
It was good but I think I would use less soya sauce. I also made some simple fried vegetables with a tbsp of soya sauce, mirin and sesame oil.
What to do with leftover pumpkin? It’s ravioli time! I hadn’t made it for. Dusted off my Woolworths pasta maker. Used a Jamie Oliver recipe for the pasta. Then fried chopped pumpkin in butter with onions, garlic, splash of wine and herbs until turned into tasty mush. Let it cool and made ravioli. I also made some tagliatelle with the leftover pasta. Boiled them up for a few minutes. Then popped them in a pan with melted butter and sage. Covered them in parmesan. Totally totally delicious 😀🎃🍝
An amazing afternoon spent at Bath Soft Cheese Company (@bathsoftcheese). We watched the ‘cheese-man’ doing something. Then of course tried all the cheeses they make. Absolutely delicious. I particularly liked their hard cheese – Wife of Bath. Then we had a sneak peek at their maturing cheeses. Brilliant and super tasty day 😀🧀
Hope you all have a very spooky Halloween 🎃☠️🦇🕷️🕸️👻
Wow! Amazing noodles from Noodle Bath. Recently opened and my first visit. Delicious. Staff were really friendly and welcoming. The owner has only recently arrived from Hong Kong. She told us off authentic food from Hong Kong with ingredients specially sourced. I had spicy noodle soup with tofu. Fantastic flavours. It also had black fungus which I’ve never tried before. A sort of cross between water chestnut and mushroom in flavour. Very good and apparently very healthy. My wife had fried noodles with vegetables and tofu. Again really tasty. I would definitely recommend.
Friedd mackerel and smokey paprika veggies with cous cous and cracked bulgar wheat.
Dried, oil and a sprinkle of salt and fried mackerel fillets a couple of minutes each side.
Chopped and sauted onion, aubergine, tomatoes, garlic and smoked paprika.
Boiled cous cous and bulgar wheat for 10 minutes and added green beans for the last 3 minutes.
Mixed veggies and cod cous bulgar wheat. Salt and pepper and lemon on mackerel and then eat!
I think mackerel is my favourite fish. And so cheap. Four fillets for £3:30. Dried the fillets with kitchen towel and then a drop of oil on the skin and a sprinkle of salt. Smoking hot pan and start skin side down. Only a few minutes each side. Deliciously fresh and succulent 🐟😀
Andd guess what I had for dinner? Yes that’s right, smoked paprika salmon. Exactly the same process as with the squid I had for lunch (see earlier post). Dust salmon in smoked paprika and flour. Shallow fry in oil about a minute each side. I had it with red pepper tomato sauce and roasted sweet potatoes. All totally delicious. Although everything on the plate was a bit orangey-red! 🐟🍅🍠
Paprikaa squid rings. Lightly dusted squid rings in flour and smoked paprika. Fried about 1 minute a side. Delicious. I used frozen squid so super simple and super quick. I had it with some fried paprika courgettes and tomato red pepper sauce. Lovely lunch. 😃🦑
I’ve just discovered a mum at my son’s school makes the most amazing muesli. She makes many flavours but this batch was fig, sultana, poppy seed and almond with lemon clusters. She’s hoping to start selling it at Green Park Station market in Bath. Keep an eye out for Feed My Soul Muesli. I had it with yoghurt and blueberries. 😀
