I know I have mentioned before that I am a vegetarian :)
I have never had any problem thinking of things to eat or making my diet varied as there is an abundance of yummy veggie foods. I do have to admit however that I have a tendency to get lazy and our sandwiches for work mainly consist of cheese and salad with lots of mayo.. (perhaps not the healthiest to eat everyday..)
Here are a couple of reciepies I am hoping to try..
Veg a Go Go -- aubergine, courgette and tomato
7cm / 3inch piece of courgette, sliced
7cm / 3 inch piece of aubergine, cubed
2 cherry tomatoes, halved
Place the vegetables in a baking tray and drizzle with olive oil.
Bake until tender, at 200°C/400°F/Gas Mark 6.Once cooked, place a large spoonful in a toasted roll and serve.
The Yummy Hummy --Sandwich hummus with watercress.
Serves four this one. Make lots and save in the fridge.
225g / 8oz chickpeas, cooked weight
90ml / 3fl oz chickpea stock, from cooking or water
30ml / 2tbsp olive oil
3 cloves garlic, crushed
2.5ml / ½tsp salt freshly ground black pepper
1. Drain the chickpeas and rinse them thoroughly Grind them in a food processor - to give a smooth paste. Add stock, tahini, lemon juice, olive oil, garlic, salt, pepper and paprika.
3. Add watercress as desired - great in half a ciabatta!
(and I know this is cheese again but mmm hallumi! )
The Halleluhah Sandwich! - Halloumi cheese, mint and sun dried tomatoes.
¼ 250g / 9oz packet of halloumi, cut into 2 slices
12.5g / ½oz seasoned flour
2 sundried tomatoes in oil, chopped small handful fresh mint
Dip the halloumi in the seasoned flour. Fry on a high heat until golden brown.
Place 2 slices of halloumi in each roll, followed by 2 sundried tomatoes and a few springs of fresh mint. Serve.
