In an effort to eat more nuts, I made this potato and cashew curry and lo it was good.

Do you have other good nut recipes? Will you please share?
Sweet or savoury, I don't mind. I promise to try it but reserve the right to substitute ingredients if the recipe you find is full of stuff I don't like/can't eat.

I'm still looking for a good pecan pie recipe, so if you've got one of those I'd love to hear it.

I made noodle salad, and as I was making it, Judith came and asked me for an egg, so I poached eggs and had them on top. I wanted to remember as it was so well received (and tasty).

Fry mushroom, courgette and onion in ghee, prepare noodles (thin rice noodles in this case). Add the veg and frying ghee to the noodles, and stir. Add chopped salad ('oriental leaf' bag mix in this case), stir. A splash of date vinegar and mirin, stirred again, served with poached eggs on top (for J & me, Colin had grated cheese)

I think I did it that way round, rather than dressing first then leaves.

The other thing I made recently which everyone loved was honey&mustard chicken (as I tweeted the recipe):

Brown chunks of chicken, make roux flour/butter/mustard, add milk slowly, add thyme, spinach, honey, splash wine. Cook until thickened. #yum

(Spinach was an lump of frozen spinach. That's quite handy, frozen spinach comes in lumps about the size of two icecubes, and you can just throw one or two in to whatever for extra flavour/colour/vitamins. Great in curries/pasta sauces)
ghoti_mhic_uait: (Blue String Pudding)
Today I made fruit enchiladas for our pudding. I more or less followed this recipe, but with one apple, one pear, two kiwis and a banana instead of all apples, and then for the sauce I used coconut flour instead of wheat flour and added some sour cream, and baked it with the sauce.

Benedict didn't like the sauce, so next time I'll do a custard-style sauce instead, but it was very nice in general.
