Straight from the land onto the plate

 Today was a real from spade to plate session. First we went to pick raspberries for the raspberry fool

We then walked to the allotment to harvest peppers, (red, green and orange) some new potatoes, oregano, butternut squash and a pumpkin.


When we arrived home we made this 'Greek new potato, courgette and pepper one pan recipe which turned out very well. So well that we voted to put it in our next cookery book. The only thing we changed was to parboil the potatoes before frying them and adding some roasted pine nuts at the end.


The butternut was turned into a simple and quick 5 spice butternut soup. We peeled the butternut, chopped into little cubes, boiled in stock until tender, then handblended it and added 5 spice to taste. Topped with some roasted pumpkin seeds, delicious!
