This weekend has been very busy, but in amongst all that we have had some awesome food.
On our way home from Soccer at Oxford, Jakob and I stopped in to see Colleen. Had a chat and cup of tea and came away with a crayfish!! Wow, one of her friends gives her them occasionally and she gave it to me. We had it grilled with garlic butter for an entree for Saturday night dinner.
Then on Sunday I had some monkfish to cook for dinner and I wanted it to be quick. So I went to one of my recorded programmes for Jamie Oliver's 15 minute meals and wrote down the Greek couscous recipe. Of course I changed it to what herbs etc I had in the garden. But his idea of whizzing all the ingredients up in the food processor was great and saved heaps of time. Also as I pick my veges from the garden I have a bit of cleaning and prep to do with them first.
And it was so fantastic that we all kept nibbling it before dinner.
My version of Jamie Oliver's 15 minute meals - Herby Vegetable CousCous
1/2 cup cous cous into a bowl with a lid
1 cup boiling water into that bowl and put the lid on.
1 cup baby frozen peas into a small bowl, cover with boiling water.
Into food processor put: (American names)
2 charred red capsicum (peppers)
2 green fresh capsicum (peppers)
5 Spring Onions (green onions)
1 Big bunch coriander stalks and all (cilantro)
1 green chilli - seeds removed
Whizz using the pulse button until well chopped but not mushy.
Into serving dish put juice from half a lemon and 2 tablespoons oil. Placed the whizzed veges into the bowl. Drain the peas and add, Add the cous cous. Mix well
