Healthy Market Goodness




Mmmmm lots of tasty treats to share!

Let's start with our post-market Sunday lunch.
We had a wonderful Asparagus and Snap pea Salad with Homemade Dill Hummus. Fantastic combos with fresh market bread; I just adored the fresh snap peas, wow, so refreshing. The Hummus has featured in our lunches this week, along with a Eggplant Spread.

I also wanted to share the desert I made for K, which was super quick and totally tasty and cute. I made a Couscous Cake using whole wheat couscous, apricots, maple syrup and a little single serving pie dish I had bought a while back from Dhile and Cammile (great kitchen/house shop here in North West Europe). This would work really well covered naughtily with maple syrup or some other type of decadent sauce.


For Sunday night supper I had made, earlier in the afternoon, a Tofu Sausage and Barlotti Bean Casserole. This simple dish was divine by the end of the day, having sat with the Rosemary sprigs from our garden all afternoon.



Tonight for dinner I wanted to change up our usual bean burritos a little bit, and the result was a recipe I will for sure put together again. I added spinach, parsley, nutritional yeast and green onion to our usual recipe (I know, I know...nothing radical but it was super tasty).

Yay burritos! Those look so good. And the couscous cake looks awesome. Homemade hummus is the best, too.

I bought the miso mayo I mentioned in my last post at Whole Foods. It's this stuff: http://www.misomayo.com/ We use it on sandwiches all the time.
