An Ode to Vegetables

At work today I had the most amazing flash-cooked yellow & green courgettes. Absolutely delicious! I also got quite excited about seeing a Borlotti bean pod for the first time! They are actually quite pretty… & the beans themselves are all shiny & smooth. I’ll try & take some photographs & share them with you.
I love these food-related illustrations by Claudia Pearson. If I owned my own house I think they’d look great framed & hanging up in the kitchen.


This picture on the Howies website made me giggle.. the carrot is huge!

Flash Courgettes:

You will need…
*courgettes (green & yellow preferably!)
*a fresh chilli
*garlic
*olive oil

1. Thinly slice the chilli pepper, removing any seeds. Thinly slice the garlic (use as much or as little as you like with both) & slice the courgettes.
2. Heat a glug or two of olive up in the pan, get it nice & hot & then drop in all of your ingredients. Be careful not to burn yourself!
3. Cook for approximately two-three minutes & then remove from the heat & serve.

So simple & so yummy!

Happy Saturday 🙂
