Food glorious food.

Some of the wonderful food we have been enjoying this past week. Salads - summer living eh?




This was a new recipe - Slimming World - as often the case sounds bizarre but heavenly - good for vegetarian diet.
Batchelors savoury rice (cooked) pressed down on the bottom if the dish. Peas pudding spread thickly on top then the cottage cheese & eggs mix. ( 1 tub 3 eggs)  Turn it into an extra easy one with superfree such as tomatoes & onions




Another Slimming World idea - scrape out the middle of a breadbun - ham and favourite salad - laughing cow cheese triangle instead of butter! LUSH!!!!!!


Our own eggs - (well the hen's) lol salad wrap - ham and lots of salad rolled in a large lettuce leaf...


Salad with a barbeque.

    1. AP - bachelor's rice is a dried instant rice, containing mixed vegetables. Peas pudding is a type of savoury paste - consistency like mashed potato...
      Peas Recipe finished dish



      Ingredients

      To make this Pease Pudding - Braised Yellow Split Peas Recipe you will need the following ingredients:

      450g / 1 lb or a packet of yellow split peas

      Water to soak

      1&1/2 pints/800 ml water or stock - to cook

      1 onion - small diced

      1 clove garlic - crushed seasoning

      Variations - use smoked garlic instead of the normal one or / and add a smoked cooked ham hock to the pot or add 3 rashers of chopped thick butchers smoked bacon to the pot or add 1 large diced potato to the mix and finish of with a tablespoon of chopped parsley (all added before cooking)


      Methods
      To make this Pease Pudding - Braised Yellow Split Peas Recipe:
      ◦Soak the split peas over night (I use a 2 pint jug and fill the water to the top)
      ◦Wash of thoroughly, in a sieve
      ◦Add to a large oven proof dish and cover with 1 & 1/2 pints water
      ◦Add the onion, garlic, NO salt at this stage but a few twists of pepper
      ◦Cover with a lid or make a tin foil lid and bake in a preheated oven gas 6 / 200*c / 400* f - for 1 & 1/2 hours, stirring once or twice
      ◦Tip - if the pease pudding dries out too quickly and absorbs too much water, simply add a little more
      ◦Take the lid of, stir very well, breaking up the peas a little
      ◦Place back in the oven for up to 30 minutes or until the pease pudding has thickened and is the consistency of hummus or mushy peas
      ◦Stir well again to break up the peas and mush a little (this will happen easily by just stirring)
      ◦Season to taste
      ◦Serve hot (or cold) and with what’s left over, refrigerate - the mix will set
      ◦For cold pease pudding, simply cut of a slice and serve with meats or pate
      ◦For warm pease pudding cut of a slice and fry in butter until lightly golden on both sides

    1. Hiy - the eggs are beaten with the cottage cheese then poured over and yes the whole thing is cooked in the dish. Tastes best when chilled - then warmed up only slightly as it is firmer than when it comes straight out of the oven.
