It has been a while since I shared any pictures of what we’ve been cooking and eating at home recently, so I thought I would look back through my albums and share some with you all. Following on from my post about cutting out cheese temporarily for health reasons, this has now been extended to a lot more things, specifically wheat, sugar, and yeast. It has been a challenge recently, but I hope I will get to the point where I am happy to share more with you.
So here’s some of the food we’ve been making and eating during April and May…
Sorrel, fresh garlic and white asparagus frittata
This was inspired by watching an episode of Two Greedy Italians where they met an elderly lady who knew all the wild herbs and plants growing around her mountain home. She picked some wild greens and made a kind of frittata, popping the cooked greens through a mouli first to remove the tough bits.
I don’t think my sorrel had many tough bits, but being rather short in both supply and knowledge of wild greens, I wanted to try out the idea anyway. It was great fun mouli-ing the sorrel and then mixing into my beaten eggs.
We’d not tried white asparagus before, but it was available in our organic grocery – I sliced peeled the outside, sliced them in half, blanched them and then laid them on top of my fritttata. Topped with a dollop of raw basil pesto (this stuff is amazing and I live off it at the moment) it was pretty tasty.
