3 delicious recipes

I have been decluttering my bookshelf and yesterday came across a book I had forgotten about. I think my mom gave it to me a while back. I like to read recipe books and as I paged through this one last night I started marking recipes I want to try.

The book is called Harvest - Recipes From An Organic Farm

Today I made her potato bake which is simple and yummy. It is layers of potatoes, salt and pepper and chicken stock. Baked at 190 C until the top is crisp.

I adjusted two of her recipes for what I had in my pantry and garden.

Green beans blanched and served with finely chopped onion and toasted sunflower seeds. (She does hers with spring onions and hard boiled egg)

Courgettes, thinly sliced lengthways, tossed in olive oil, flash fry on ridged pan, place in shallow bowl and drizzled with pomegranate concentrate and chopped mint. (Hers was dressed with vinegarette.)

It made for a spectacular Sunday lunch!

Oh, that all looks so good, especially the potatoes. I look forward to being home to cook again!
