So this post should have been uploaded quite a while ago as I made it whilst I was still at home in London over a week ago. Now that it feels like summer is over this post feels a little redundant as it is quite light and summery but it shouldn’t really matter when you make it! I had some fresh carrots and courgettes from the farm and wanted to use them so did a simple steam and gently fry to give them some flavour.
First I chopped the vegetables into smallish chunks about 2cm x 2cm.
Next steam them for about 15-20 minutes until soft to taste.
Add oil to a hot pan as well as some finely chopped onions/shallots. When the onions have turned slightly brown, add the vegetables and season with salt/pepper and a little meat stock.
Serve with noodles, rice, pasta etc. as preferred.
On a side note, I recently came across this deliciouscombination of beetroot and apple which could be served as a lovely fresh side dish. To make, finely grate sweet apple and beetroot (adjust ratio accordingly) and add a touch of olive oil, balsamic vinegar, and season. I absolutely love the deep crimson colour and it would make a lovely addition to any dinner table.
Do you have any exciting or unusual flavour combinations?
