Yesterday we used some vouchers we had for Holland and Barrett and treated ourselves to some coconut milk icecream, it's the ideal thing to have after a burger. From the book Isa Does It I made the Island Black Bean Burgers and Dan made curry fries (pictured above), they were both delicious and simple to make, no obscure ingredients or fancy equipment needed. I used panko breadcrumbs, but next time I'll just use whatever bread we have in. The mixture made 8 burgers, we ate one each and froze the rest.
We also made some fruit and nut Nakd-style bars
Only three ingredients, the recipe said to use raisins too, but we didn't have any. It's just a matter of blitzing them in the food processor, pressing into a mould of some kind and leaving in the fridge for half an hour. I confess we didn't have total success with this as I didn't squidge the mixture together enough so it was very crumbly even when it had been in the fridge. But the bars/pile of bits taste great and I'll certainly make them again. Half are in the fridge, half in the freezer. Doing this also tested the power of my food processor, it had to rest a couple of times, so I may be on the lookout for something a bit more powerful if we're going to keep up the cooking from scratch.
Today is all about watching football, drinking tea and hopefully finishing my library book. It's a gorgeous day and I'm so relaxed!
