three times over
i migrated to newcastle for nearly a week… it was hectic and busy and fun and hung over and stimulating and rainy and hot.
my home for the week was at mark’s – which saw people come and go day in day out, and was full of life and excitement. on thursday night (the calm before the storm perhaps) three of us got busy in the kitchen to make these amazing dishes and feed six of us. no real co-ordination, just some good cooks and cheoreographed kitchen antics.
from left to right, it’s my beetroot, tempeh and avocado salad, becky’s lentils and rice (with a very proper sounding arabic name i have no idea how to write) and mark’s ‘beanie tahini’ (ful mesdames(sp?) and tahini goodness). in the back is mark’s sweet potato soup leftovers, and somewhere hiding outside the photo are some poor excuses for pitta bread (mark blamed the tina crowd for eating all the lebanese bread!)
turned out the whole thing was vegan too.
green and pink salad
cube half a block of tempeh and fry the cubes until golden in vegetable oil, set aside to cool.
peel and grate three fresh beetroots
halve an avocado, cube one half and slice the other half
put the beetroot, tempeh and avocado in a salad bowl, add a good lot of olive oil and balsamic vinegar and half a teaspoon of sugar, stir through well and serve the sliced avocado on top
