One of my goals for this week is to make a different salad every day. On tonight's menu is this warm quinoa, roast pumpkin and pine nut salad (recipe is from The Sugar-Free Kitchen cook book). It was delicious! 👍🏼
P A D D O B U R G E R 🍄🍔 • a late lunch with sweet @carmenlikescake last Saturday. I love @bagelsbeans's new menu! This is a mushroom burger with truffle mayonnaise, Parmesan and pinenuts. How do you take your bagel?
So what did we try out at Lucy's Cafe? Paisleigh slept (woohoo) whilst I (really) enjoyed a goat’s cheese salad. This was my first bit of goat’s cheese since finding out I was pregnant and my gosh was it good! Lucy didn’t scrimp on the cheese either, I reckon I had my quota for the last ten months in that one salad, and I was not complaining! I enjoyed every single last bit. The grilled goat’s cheese was served atop roasted vegetables, mixed leaves and pine nuts all drizzled with basil oil. Wonderful combo and a small attempt of mine to be healthy, although as I followed it up with a salted caramel brownie I think I may have ruined my good intentions! #goatscheese#pregnancycravings#salad#lunch#roastedvegetables#basiloil#mixedleaves#pinenuts#lucyscafe#bathroad#food#foodie#fdblogger#honeybourneline#cheltenham
Please let's just ignore the terrible lighting, shall we? But as the evenings get darker so get my opportunities to get a good picture these hours. I still think that this one is much worth sharing: A comforting warm autumn salad with ripe and juicy figs, crispy fried walnut fennel tofu, fresh herbs from the garden and toasted pine nuts. Perfect for a cozy evening in in front of a warm and crackling fire and a steamingly hot mug of tea (okay, okay it might not be time for that yet, haha)
It's definitely autumn. My gal has been talking about roasting pinenuts for a good 48 hours. Once they started warming, the house was engulfed in a nostalgic scent. I told her stories about my late grandmother roasting pinenuts. She is growing her own sense of appreciation not only for the nut, but for the smell as well.
