I've been plodding along, working hard and enjoying the beautiful weather- spring is upon us and I'm loving the sun! my legs however, are so white you can see my vains (argh english skin!) so I need to get my dresses, skirts and short out and get out in the fun!...however this does also mean that the hayfever is back :(
Corn and Chickpea Soup (with floaties)After my canned soup experiences I decided homemade was the way to go and went back to an old favourite, this was very similar to this Chickpea, Corn & Sage soup but I changed the ratios slightly (more chickpeas = thicker and less sweet) and added some gorgeous broccoli floaties! I love my broccoli so this was a winner for me- of course if you do not share my love for broccoli add whatever veggie you like!
I also made a pesto out of edamame, peas, spinach, pine nuts, mint, oregano and sage- recipe to come but I used it to make this millet dish.
Green Pesto Millet1 cup cooked millet
1/2 cup peas
1/2 cup cooked spinach
1 heaped tbsp of homemade pesto (edamame, peas, spinach, pine nuts, mint, oregano, sage)
1 Carrot (attacked with the curly cutter)
1/4 cup water
- cook millet if not already done (I like to keep cooked grains in the fridge/freezer)
- combine all ingredients except the carrot
- combine and heat
- cut carrot and serve- it may not look like much but it tasted great!
I don't think you need a recipe for this one... 1 cup cooked porridge and 1/2 cup frozen berries- heat and eat- easy peasy :)
Thank goodness there's another day to this weekend- this one has just flown by!
Hope you're all enjoying yourselves xxx
