an hour ago

One of the things my muvva used to say when we were kids was...

"An hour ago these vegies were growing in the garden. And now... they're making US grow!"     ~ Vera Sleight

This is a Jamie meal, slightly adapted to what we had on hand.  It consists of:
  • Sweet potato mash
  • Smoked salmon fillets
  • Asian Greens
mash:  this has flavours of fresh coriander, chutney, soy and lime mixed through sweet potato

greens:  broccoli, chilli, green pea shoots, soy, olive oil, sesame oil, lime juice

salmon:  vacuum packed, smoked, and what we had in the fridge slightly warmed in the microwave

Did I mention everything here (except the fish) is from the garden?  Yup. Everything! It's very satisfying. 

And the flavours, people! Jamie just comes up with fantastic combos every time. Freshness, zing and full of interest and deliciousness. 

Sometimes the meals you make up at the end of the week because you've forgotten to leave chicken out of the freezer to thaw... turns out better than anything you possibly imagined. This is definitely going to happen again. And again. Yes it is.
