The pretty little jewel like seeds of pomegranate always cheer up a simple dish. Pomegranate molasses is now available in many shops and is thick and fragrant, a lovely tangy reduction of pomegranate juice, adding depth of flavour to many dishes. Quinoa is high in protein and this makes a nice satisfying lunchbox.
Delicious and quick (my favourite!) The mint leaves a rather nice fresh taste on the palate after you’ve finished eating. Use about 5g fresh mint.
The first of the garden basil is now ready, and the tomatoes are not far behind. I adore that summery taste and smell of freshly picked basil and am making what must be the fastest and tastiest salad for lunch today. Just a few ingredients and a piece of crusty bread to mop up the juice. Delicious.
