Saudi Champagne

A little something to accompany the saffron roast tomatoes and Persian chilau of yesterday’s post.

Saudi champagne is a really delicious non-alcoholic drink that’s so refreshing it actually makes your mouth water.

A perfect drink to serve for guests who are driving, even non-drivers will want at least one when they see it, remember that.  Continue reading “Saudi Champagne”

Pumpkin Hummus

Now then, this isn’t pumpkin flavoured chick pea hummus, this is hummus made from pumpkin.

And oh boy, reckon it’s better than the chick pea version. Yep.

Now, you know we love hummus so much we’re prepared to peel every bloomin’ chick pea to achieve that smooth consistency we crave, so these are big words, but that’s one of the reasons this dish beats the better known version, it’s so damn easy, and really, really good. And veegs! Continue reading “Pumpkin Hummus”

Fruit Salad with Rosewater & Mint

Basically this is just a collection of all four of my all time favourite summer fruits, plus an apple.

And d’ya know what? It’s the apple that makes it. Apple and mint are best friends as we know, here it’s cut up real small and so gets pretty pally with the rose water too and just brings everything together as one. The fruits are left to steep in rosewater which amplifies their sweetness.

Don’t fear the freekeh

C’mon baby, don’t fear the freekeh.

Cast your minds back to the These 5 Grains post we did a few months ago. Y’know, the one where we banged on forever about the virtue of five ancient grains.

Greenwheat freekeh was among them, and the salad we made with artichokes, golden onions and labneh instantly became Charlie’s new fave.

Well it’s back gracing our salad bowl and between the freekeh and the hemp hearts, this little beauty packs a whopper protein punch. And a taste sensation.  Continue reading “Don’t fear the freekeh”

Hummus

Fightin’ talk… but shop bought hummus is gash.

We’re not wading into the hummus wars, but we do know the perfect hummus is worth fighting for.

We’ve been feuding with chickpeas for years searching for the perfect recipe – too coarse, too lemony, too tahini-y, not garlicky enuff, meh – to name a few disappointments.¹ But at last we’ve found the one.

This hummus is smooooooth, creamy, garlicky delicousness.  Continue reading “Hummus”
