If you’re looking for some culinary inspiration here’s a round up of some of the recipes from The Food Wife that we’re having this week.
Pizza, The Food Husband’s favourite, has been off the menu for a while as he’s eliminating gluten from his diet, but I made up a batch of sourdough pizza bases with the addition of two teaspoons each of garlic powder and dried oregano to the dough. I had a go at a potato base for a gluten-free version, which was a big hit (think giant gnocchi base). Watch this space for the recipe as I try to recreate it next time pizza is on the menu.
We’re still working our way through the jars of wild garlic pesto I made recently, and tomorrow we’ll be enjoying it simply with pasta and green beans for a light and summery meal. I’ll also be adding it as a topping to a salmon fillet before roasting it in the oven another evening this week.
The Food Baby has not been forgotten either. Still in the quest to smuggle more vegetables into his diet (he can spot a pea from the other side of the room) I’ve batch-cooked a tomato and carrot pasta sauce and a three bean chilli along with a double batch of cheese and vegetable scones for the freezer. This time using grated parsnip, carrot and broccoli along with chopped spinach and sundried tomatoes, he devours them without the knowledge that I’m getting sneaky veg inside him!
And finally if, like me, you love rhubarb, then you’ll be loving the abundance of it at the moment. Why not give my rhubarb crumble traybake a go, or if you can wait a while, have a go at my rhubarb gin. It’s worth the wait!
