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.
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?

Yum! That breakfast sounds great. I love gingerbread flavor/spices.
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?
Mint tea is the BEST!!
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.
I love all your eats! 🙂 I think dark chocolate and tea is a great snack.
I agree with you – cooking loads of veggies in a tomato-y stew is probably my favourite way of eating veggies. I really like the idea of the gingerbread porridge & DCD combo – I’ll be trying that out soon.
Yum gingerbread cookie flavor for breakfast- sounds delish!
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 🙂
Your vegetable bakes and casseroles always look so good; proper home cooking 🙂
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 🙂
Your porridge sounds like an awesome flavor combination…dark chocolate dreams is my favorite!
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.
Your sourdough bread looks amazing! I’m still on the hunt for that porridge!
Mmm I love all your eats! You have such nice food! 🙂
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! 🙂 Also, stir-fry is always refreshing and crunchy and, yeah, I love!
Hope you are doing okay! 🙂 x
