Boy it's hot here! It makes cooking in the evening a challenge. Tonight Superman has planned a BBQ which is really welcome, but last night I was on duty!
My garden is yielding so nicely at the moment. Tomatoes are being picked by the basket full, marrows are filling out and French beans prolific. I paged through one of my favourite cookbooks - Healthy Appetite, Gordon Ramsey - and adjusted a recipe of his.
Fry one chopped onion in some olive oil, then add trimmed french beans and circular marrows. Sweat until just tender. Remove from the heat and add lots of cherry tomatoes. Sprinkle over 1t sugar, 1/4t thyme & sweet basil. Serve luke warm.
I put this with some sticky chicken drumsticks. Heat oven to 200C. Put drumsticks in an oven dish, drizzled with olive oil and sprinkled with salt and pepper. Cook for 20mins.
In the meantime, mix together 3T Fish Sauce, 3T Soya Sauce, 3T Rice Vinegar and 6T Honey. Remove chicken from oven, pour sauce over and cook, turning every now and again, until dark and sticky....sooooo yummy!
