While I was ohmmmming at the meditation course I had a while to think about food - and definitely got a few good bursts of inspiration there.
Dinner tonight was parmesan scrambled eggs and baked beans from a can. It got me thinking about making my own baked beans - which is certainly not a new idea. Suddenly I visualised the finished meal in my head:
Chickpeas (cannellini beans? kidney beans? cannellini and broad beans? - maybe any bean) cooked with tomatoes and herbs (thyme, parsley,basil, lemon juice) with a poached egg and parmesan cream sauce. Sounds divine. May have to cook it this weekend.
The dishes I created in thought form only while away over New Years are:
- Tuna Ravioli with a pea sauce
- Smashed potato, haloumi and quinoa stack, with green beans on the side and a tomatoey sauce.
- Won ton soup -nothing new here, just would lie to make one. However it will need to be vege now.
- Mango chicken - probably also a no-go now, but still keen on the coconut rice and salad with walnuts and lime dressing
Ohmmmmm tasty ;)
