My big artichoke plant needs harvesting,they’re much much better than last year’s ones, no insects at least.
But as usual though big only the end of bulp is used, after boiling them with some lemon I peeled them and made a nice rich salad with baby corns and palmetto.
Boiled some chickpeas this morning, hummus is a good low carbohydrate high in protein dish so it makes a good appetizer or even a breakfast choice.This time I tried it with a piece of boiled sweet potato as my friend Mary advised one, really yummy and added smoothness to the hummus.
I also made the special salad as they call it in restaurants thee palmetto artichoke mushroom and baby corn salad with a creamy dressing of mustard,mayonnaise,lemon,balsamic,herbs and olive oil. A fancy dish for sure .
Main dish was chicken curry from yesterday.
hummus with sweet potatoes.
chick peas,sweet potato,tahini, yogurt,garlic,lemon and salt.
Seems this cold weather will continue all week, was going to make a soup with chicken fatteh but boys said cheese loaf is better.
I like doing fatteh when I have extra cooked rice though it’s an easy dish but needs lots of preparation,cook chicken, roast bread, roast nuts,chop parsley and make tahini sauce. Too much work right?
Cheese Loaf this time was better than last time I did it,trick is as my friend told me is to wrap it in foil first. Absolutely yummy yummy.
I also made the palmetto,artichoke salad and refreshing rich salad for sure.
Very busy Saturday,didn’t have time to write my daily post till now.
Lunch today was Pizza,homemade in two big trays,boys are now eating it for dinner also. We are definitely a pizza lovers family !
I also made this rich salad,we usually eat it in restaurants specially in Fakhr El-Deen , it’s a mix of coarsely chopped palmetto,artichoke, baby corns,avocados and mushrooms over a bed of lettuce and I made a honey mustard dressing which contains a bit of mustard,honey,lemon juice,bit of pomegranate sauce and of course olive oil,salt and oregano . Yummy rich salad for sure.
