Jamie Oliver has a new programme that we caught by accident last week where he is helping people to cook with limited ingredients, encouraging experimenting if you don’t have all the ‘correct’ ingredients and demonstrated a no egg Chocolate Cake (as eggs are very hard to come by at the moment. I scribbled down the recipe – very quick and easy, no eggs, lots of nuts and oh, so moreish! We had it warm with single cream. It would be good with ice-cream too.
We left some on the step for our lovely neighbour to try too and a note for the neighbours on the other side that there is some waiting for them in thanks for the SR flour they found for us.
Tonight’s meal was another new recipe, this time a Yotam Ottolenghi one from this weekend’s Feast magazine that comes with The Guardian. I served it with yogurt and slivered almonds and a naan rather than with the suggested rice. But, seriously, who grates a tomato let alone four?! We chopped them and it worked really well and was very tasty. We had no spinach so I used the cauliflower greens chopped up instead.
