I suppose there are worse “habits”. This one is made with cilantro, basil and toasted marcona almonds. Also “cheated” and used a stick blender instead of the mortar & pestle. So delicious. What’s the last thing you got hooked on making?
It’s been YEARS since I made a caesar salad and I don’t know why. It was so garlicky, cheesy, bacony delicious with fresh crispy romaine and toasted crunchy croutons… a total flavour and texture delight. Perhaps not the “healthiest” of salads, but it’s certainly my favourite. What’s yours?
I don’t know how these things happen but I can start off a day feeling fairly normal and with a “to do” list of things of thing I want to take care of, and then remember that a few weeks ago someone mentioned pistachio pesto on Twitter and then I’m suddenly lost down a google pesto rabbit-hole. This is followed by an immediate desire – nay, OBSESSION – to make this dish NOW (last time this happened I think it was lamb faggots). Anyhow, after a quick trip to the supermarket to get some pistachios and basil I was in business.
If you haven’t been to Azahar’s Kitchen for a while, go check it out. New recipes have been added and #homecooking photos are also posted on my azahar Instagram account (along with cats and city pics). I was actually quite excited about this new spinach with garbanzos version. A bit like making it up as I went along, but it turned out great. Honestly, making lunch has become the highlight of my day.
