After a very yummy but rather filling lunch at Tim Norton’s I wasn’t desperately hungry, but still in need of something to sate a bit of an appetite and soak up all the booze drunk at Tim’s. (For the record lunch at Tim’s: mackerel with beetroot, butternut squash and horseradish dressing followed by Ottolenghi chicken cooked with dates, olives & capers). Bella and I made this big tasty salad, which we munched with Mum, Dad and Chris before devouring a couple of episodes of Homeland to finish things off.
Giant cous cous boiled in chicken stock for 12 minutes mixed with:
-Roasted vegetables (onions, butternut squash, courgette, aubergine, tomatoes, red peppers) roasted with some sumac, zatar, thyme and chilli flakes and drenched in olive oil.
-A tin of chickpeas
-1/2 a chopped red chilli
-Tablespoon of tomato puree mixed with a crushed garlic clove
-A few big handfuls of babyleaf spinach
-1/2 a tablespoon of rose harissa paste
-A handful of pine nuts and some other seeds found in the back of the cupboard
-A cubed pack of feta
-A big handful of coriander
Served with a green salad. Would be a fab lunch/picnic dish and go well with chicken.
