What have you cooked veggie today?

For those time when the Vegetarians and Vegans want to get away from the more carnivorous types.

It was really good, Tezza, definitely one to be repeated soon - great to have a new idea to use them!

On Friday, I made a sage and onion risotto with lots of parmesan.
Last night I turned this into a Risotto Pie, roughly following Jame Oliver's recipe from his new Italy book. So left over risotto with butternutswash, garlic and a touch of chipotle - just enough to give some subtle warmth.

This was all quite time consuming. The results were good but not, imo 'guests for dinner worthy'. I shall be eating up the left overs for a couple of days...

Next on the agenda are Anna Jones' gram flour and carrot pancakes - I like the look of the fried egg and roast tomato topping.

I have been making these pancakes for years, they are very nice for a quick lunch. You can add many others grated vegetables. They were one of the favourite things of my late father. Serve with a mango/ apple chutney and lassi. I can't post the link the usual way from my mobile, so here is the long link. https://www.mamtaskitchen.com/recipe_di ... p?id=13961

Those do look good Mamta, I have all ingredients, so they will be on the menu one day next week... :chops: I even have the ingredients for lassi ! Thank you for the pointer...... Mr. Z. still waxes lyrical about your broccoli recipe, we even like it cold/tepid.

Anna's recipe just involves blending/blitzing chickpea flour, grated carrot and milk, pretty much:

Which broccoli recipe might that be? Would be very interested if it's not too complicated! (I seem to be off recipes with too much faff at the moment :oops: !) Thx

I forgot to say, risotto was finished off with a knob of smoked butter.

https://www.theguardian.com/food/2018/o ... nta-chee

In north India, savoury chilla pancakes batter is made in water, sweet ones are sometimes made in milk. Chickpeas are pretty good in proteins, so don't need more added. It might be worth adding a bit of yoghurt though.
Besan flour dishes are known to make one thirsty. That is why I usually serve them with a raita or yoghurt or lassi.
I would normally add Carom seeds (ajwain) to my chilla pancakes batter or paratha dough. I haven't tried caraway seeds, as in Anna's recipe. Probably works quite well.

These days, I forget to look into Wildfood forum foods most of the time, unless there is a remonder from one of the older threads, like this one. If there was a way of being notified automatically of any new posts, that might drag me out of my slumber :D ;) ;)! I love it when I do get back for a while.

I think it might be the 'subscribe topic' box right at the bottom of the page?

edit: at the bottom of the page is a 'subscribe topic' link. Click on it and it will take you to a page asking if you really want to subscribe to the thread. When you tick yes and come back to the thread, the link will be 'unsubscribe topic' and the tick should have been replaced by a cross.

I know about the threads I have been responding to already. I meant getting informed about a brand new thread, that I have not seen yet.

What a coincidence!
I was asked to cook a Thanksgiving Dinner on Thursday. The second course was roasted Root Vegetable soup.
My root veg were carrot, sweet potato, yam and Taro root - instead of curry powder, I used cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves.

Today´s lunch, however, was an Indian menu for some French diplomats.
Masoor dal with spinach; green beans sautéed with sesame seeds and coconut, and Khatte Baingan - aubergines with fennel, turmeric, cayenne, cumin seeds, ginger, tamarind juice and a touch of sugar.

Today I had a potato curry with hot lentil dumplings (called Baries), with parathas and bathua (Lambsquarter weed) raita. I had picked and frozen some in summer
