So how do you solve a problem like……. a vegetarian coming over for an impromptu dinner!
So those of you who are vegetarians will be reading this and probably shouting recipe ideas at the computer but……… for a family of committed meat eaters this is a little bit of a challenge and then sling into the mix that cheese is also not a goer!!!
So………Becksie got the recipe books out and……discovered that all of the recipes that got an ooooo and an aaaaaa from Ian were meat based!
Ok, Ok don’t panic……….text vegetarian foodie Friend Mr T Belte from the lovely blog Back Kitchen Happenings and wait….. Oh dear time is short Becksie is officially going it alone!
So………………….. Sweet Potato and Butter Bean Curry, Tumeric and sultana Rice, Some Leek, Parsnip, carrot and black onion seed bhaji’s, mango chutney and flatbreads! Phew…… we had ourselves a meat and cheese free feast!
And here’s a little guide to making flatbreads! Quick, easy and delicious!
250 grams plain flour
1 teaspoon fine sea salt
1 tablespoon rapeseed, olive or sunflower oil
150ml warm water
Sift the flour, add the salt and oil and mix to a sticky dough! Turn out onto a floured surface and knead for 5 mins! Put back in the mixing bowl, cover and rest for 15 mins!
Make dough into a long sausage and divide into 8 pieces!
Cook the first side for approx 1 ½ minutes until the dough looks set and has started to lift from the pan, flip over and cook the other side for approx 40 seconds! Take out of the griddle and place on a plate under a tea towel! Serve whilst as hot as possible! YUMMY!
