Favourites...oh boy was this a hard posting to put together..two reasons..how could I possibly choose???..and I'm not feeling my best today so the very idea of eating or pulling back the memories was very uncomfortable. But I promised you a favourites posting and I deliver..lol
So...I shall start with..
|Rocket and Roses White Miso, Garlic and Chickpea Soup|
|Sesame Broccoli Salad|
I am a paid up, card carrying member of the Broccoli addicts society..lol I love it raw, steamed, sautéed with garlic, made into a lasagne, as a filling for an tofu omelette...but especially in this salad. Can't get enough of this salad..it looks great..tastes better and is comfort food for me..lol
|Rocket and Roses Chestnut & Sprout Pate|
I do love hummus..my favourite being a little fat version that uses no oils except for the natural oil in walnuts..it's delicious but I will try almost all variations of hummus...as long as it's vegan..obviously. lol. But for today I chose the Edamame Dip because it's..well..edamame crammed..always good..lol. But it's refreshing and clean tasting..and extremely good for you and can be used in many ways..topping, dip, spread, tossed with hot pasta..I could go on but won't. lol.
|Malaysian Stir fried Noodles with Veggies|
I just love a good noodle dish and this one for me is just splendid. Packed with flavour and colour..although my inadequate photo skills haven't been able to show it to you..lol. A great noodle dish...
|Creamy Broccoli and Spinach Lasagne|
|French Courgette/Zucchini Lattice Flan|
|Provencal Eggplant/Aubergine Gratin with Orange Tomato Sauce|
Sorry for the fuzzy photo..lol. I wish I could describe to you the smell of this dish when it was cooking..oh my..lol. This was one of those dishes that I kept reading the recipe and thinking.."Hmm not sure about oranges.." lol. Then one day I just decided to give it a shot..and how pleased were we that I did. It's so tasty..nothing like it. So therefore it deserved the honourable mention.
|Tofu Omelette with Broccoli, Garlic & Chorizo filling|
|Soda Bread with Vegan 'Goats Cheese' and Blistered Vine Tomatoes|
|Dreena's Blueberry and Carob Pancakes|
|Rocket and Roses Trio of Strawberry Desserts|
|Rocket and Roses Date & Almond Bites and Coconut & Date Bites|
Before being put on 'rest' (making use of the Expletive Therapy lol) I was playing around with making Bites...sweet little somethings for when that sweet tooth kicked in. And these were my first attempts..and we enjoyed every single one..it's a project I am going to return to when I'm back in the kitchen...much to my blender's horror..no doubt. lol
