So the garden has grown like crazy due to the warm weather and responsible watering via the sprinkler.
This is half of the basil we picked on Saturday morning. Dave and I made a basil//spinach pesto using this recipe. No photo as we were hungry and in a rush to make it to the Andrew Bird concert. I think Patrick Watson (opener) was actually better live. Fantastic music.
Another never-ending project...
And continuing the minimal cooking around here: homemade whole wheat flatbreads + homemade hummus topped with spinach, lentil salad, and red onion.
homemade hummus [adapted from this recipe]
Blitz everything in the food processor. You shouldn't need salt if you use the liquid from the beans (half).
1.25 cups whole wheat flour
1/4 cup oil
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup warm water
Mix wet and dry ingredients. Divide into 6 equal pieces (here you're supposed to let the dough rest, but I didn't really care, so I skipped this). Use a rolling pin (or bottom on a flat pan) to make the dough into a round shape (ha, or egg shaped). Grease a frying pan and heat to desired doneness.
I also made yogurt last week, and it was so easy! Post on that process to come. Get ready to make the best Greek yogurt ever.
