It’s picture day. Because I feel like it!
First, food pic:
Courgette Soup (recipe)
Then, knitting pic:
Kilt Hose for Jan (pattern). It fits me, it better fit him!
Servings: 1 as full meal, 2 as starter.
Notes: I used dry chickpeas that I boiled, ’cause I don’t really like the canned ones (and the weird things they add to them). Take 250 grams (about 2/3 cup) dry chickpeas and soak overnight in at least twice as much water. In the morning drain the water, rinse with fresh water, and drain again. Put chickpeas in deep pot, add 1 teaspoon salt, 1 small bay leaf and 8-10 fennel seeds, add water until it doubles chickpeas’ volume. Bring to a boil, then let simmer for around 2 hours, until chickpeas are as tender as you prefer them.
Did I mention I love cooking? And books? So cooking books are always appreciated. I’m also a vegetarian (ovo-lacto in case you wonder), so this cookbook is great for me.
Vegan with a Vengeance, by Isa Chandra Moskowitz
If you clicked on that link, you’ll notice my book is different from the one on the Post Punk Kitchen website. That’s because mine is the British edition. Sadly, the publisher Grub Street left out the few pictures that can be found on the original version. Will that keep me from cooking these delicious and vegan recipes? Nope! Will it encourage me to take pics of my finished dishes from this book? Definitively!
