WIAW- sourdough edition

Morning everyone.

Yup, if you have not had enough of my weird baking already, I took photos for WIAW when I made my first sourdough loaf (Friday).


Mint tea (I condensed most of my mint teabags into one box- I thought it was all I had (Twinnings and Aldi) but then found a whole box of Whittards ones too. Having one a day will use them up pretty quick).

Plus porridge- Gingerbread porridge plus a spoonful of dark choc dreams and a topping of cinnamon. Tastes like a chocolate coated gingerbread cookie. Yum.




I could not resist a taste of the sourdough, so I had it with some caramelised onion hummus, cucumber, grapes and persimmon.


Some dark chocolate with some lemongrass and vanilla tea. I went on a little walk and I needed a hot drink when I got back inside!


Bean and veggie bake, topped with cheese, and some sourdough. This is my fave way to eat veggies- all cooked up together- in this is onions, red and green peppers, tomatoes, beans, but we will add courgettes/ aubergine/ spinach depending on what we have in.


When wandering in Waitrose I saw these rice puddings- mango and coconut, so I had one warmed with half of a graze punnet (which was dried mango, pineapple and coconut). Totally tropical!

So, Jenn has created a WIAW theme about loving your veggies.

Β At the moment I am loving dipping veggies in that hummus for lunch- sometimes peppers, sometimes carrots, cucumber or celery. For some reason I don’t often have cooked lunches, even though at the moment I easily could. It seems a bit of a waste to turn the oven on just for me. Although I do love soup for lunch and have that some days.

I get most of my veggies with my evening meal and my fave way is when they get all cooked together- like in the bean bake, or in a chickpea stew, or the mexican casserole, or a veggie bean chilli. Then you can just put in what you fancy, or what you have in the fridge. Most of my recipes for dinners have veggies in them, so feel free to take a look.

So, to go with the theme, fave veggie packed recipe?Β

  1. This is one delicious looking WIAW post, every meal/snack involves my most favourite foods! My favourite veggie meals are similar to yours… love them in a tomato based sauce with beans/lentils/sweet pots and different herbs or spices. Roasted veg with hummus (gotta be Sabra or caramelised onion!) is also amazing and great stuffed in a pita for lunch…mmm. Your sourdough bread looks like it came out really well, would you say it was worth making?

  2. Bronagh I love the idea of having it in a pitta with roasted veggies. Yes I think the sourdough was worth making- esp as I have the time at the moment, but really it did not take much time (only kneading took longer than normal bread)- most of it was just leaving it between shaping/ cooking etc. It also lasted pretty well too- I had it for toast a few days later and it was still fine.

  3. How can you eat half of a graze punnet?! Eating just half of the box would be a start for me! Admittedly i do have a serious lack of self control πŸ™‚

  4. Your vegetable bakes and casseroles always look so good; proper home cooking πŸ™‚
    I eat all my vegetables for dinner; I can’t resist a mountian of steamed broccoli, leeks and red cabbage! My favourite is cauliflower “risotto” with mushrooms, spinach and tomato, mixed with red pesto and cheese…. so good πŸ™‚

  5. Gingerbread porridge, yum!! I also love cooked veggie dishes like Ratatouille or veggie chilli or curries, mmmmmm. I haven’t baked bread in weeks, but your sourdough bread looks awesome.

  6. Mmm I love all your eats! You have such nice food! πŸ™‚

    I think my favourite veggie-packed meal is stir fry with lots of differnet variety and a simply sauce/or just soya sauce. I love being able to enjoy the taste of the veggies without them being lost in sauce or whatever! πŸ™‚ Also, stir-fry is always refreshing and crunchy and, yeah, I love!

    Hope you are doing okay! πŸ™‚ x
