After a crazy month at work finally have some days off. I will be staying in London this time, just relaxing, cooking meeting friends and going to the gym. So yesterday as I was off I had the time to make something nice for lunch, really tasty and healing. I bought a book called Medicinal cookery, and I am trying to pack as much good ingredients as I can, sometimes just swapping white onion for purple makes a difference!
Sausage (optional, without for vegan)
Spices : Turmeric, Cumin, rosemary, chili, black pepper, salt
Wash, cut and boil the potatoes.
Pan fry the sausages.
In a wok put a bit of oil, I used carotino to try, mix all the vegetables and cook them for 10 m maximum,so it doesn’t lose all the nutrients.
Slice sausages and mix them with the potatoes and vegetables.
It’s a really nice filling meal, that gets it’s kick and flavor from the spices! Try it, I’m sure you will love it 😉
Wholemeal bread with sesame seeds crust
I always use the same formula , 1kg of flour for 700ml of water, plus salt, oil and raising agent. This time I used the cake one, but you get much better results with proper yeast to bake bread imo.
I mix the ingredients, 600 g of whole meal and 400 g of white flour, salt, oil, baking powder, pumpkin seeds and poppy seeds, and combine. Add the water little by little until all is homogeneous and knead for 10 m. Let it rise for 1 hour, knead a bit more, let it rise for another hour if you have the time.
Bake for 60 m at 180 degrees in the oven bottom shelf.
This bread was made a couple of weeks ago, today I’m baking Rye bread. There is nothing like doing it yourself, it’s creative and you know exactly what goes into it! 😀
Tomorrow I’m making dinner for some friends so some more posts are coming soon!
