Decided to try a new recipe tonight, mixed with an old favourite. Well, it’s technically not that old. Yet after you’d made a recipe at least half a dozen times, it becomes an old favourite.
Both recipes came from two of my favourite people; our resident Zombie first got me started on “chick pea patties” and my friend Fearless sent me the recipe for Israeli Couscous.
The thing I enjoy most about cooking from a recipe is changing it up a bit. I guess this only comes with experience, and knowing what spices will work well together and what your particular palette enjoys most.
Here’s the couscous mixed with chickpeas, almonds, cranberries, tomatoes, cumin, coriander and cinnamon. This recipe is all in the cinnamon, oh and the lemon. Next time I need to add one more tomato.
Same ingredients but I added some basmati rice to this half instead of couscous. Very tasty still.
I had too many pots cooking at once, my documenting of the falafel fell by the wayside. Next time. Doesn’t look that appetizing, but I promise, it is. I love biting into falafel with a bit of tzatiki and having it crumble in your mouth.
This made me think about the old Food Porn blog that some of us used to write for. I can’t commit to another blog at the moment, but I do miss sharing recipes. I don’t normally eat dessert, but I’m think I’d like a new one to test out. If you have a suggestion, do leave it in the comments.
What did you have for dinner tonight?
