I had a afternoon tea invite to bring a plate to share. So I teamed my basil pesto with crudités and gluten free CCs so you could nibble without the guilt. See the homemade sauces post for basil pesto recipe
Another quick meal to prepare. Simply cook the rissoles in non stick skillet with cooking spray. Toss together the salad and the meal is ready.
As I cleared out fridge of any bought sauces I wanted to make some of my own I haven’t tried before. I also made another batch of the mint sauce I made last year.
My Creamy Fennel Mustard Recipe is Soo Good! Great for BBQ with Sausages/Steak/Chicken or even Fish or when you want a salad dressing that’s not the normal mayo. No cream involved. Definitely making this one again.
My Basil Pesto Recipe worked out rather well. I don’t add parmesan to mine but a lot of recipes for basil pesto do include it so it is up to the individual taste. I personally don’t think it needs it.
The Chimichurri Recipe from Coles free magazine. Had this one with Steak. Neither hubby nor I liked it.
My Mint Sauce Recipe will be a favourite. See previous posts for recipe.
I needed to use up slow cooker chicken. This was teamed with my gluten-free bread 3 slices. Topped with coral lettuce, avocado and homemade pesto.
Panfry pork steaks on non stick skillet with cooking spray. Serve with 2 Tb homemade mint sauce.
I wanted to do steak and chimichurri sauce i made. I didn’t really like the sauce but when i team it with the rest of the plate it was ok. This plate was 2 serves for me. i could only eat half and kept rest for another meal. (The chips fish cocktail and sea shanty with aIoli for me is 1 meal in itself). Hubby ate the lot in one go.
I used 2 cups of summer slaw (see previous recipe) then added 2Tb homemade chicken stock, 2Tb my fennel mustard and sprinkle all season powder, light pinch sea salt and black pepper l. I also added 1/4 red onion
