Well – it’s certainly warmed up, so to continue my fridge clearing and meal planning, we are having a salad – a super size, Eat the Rainbow salad – or Buddha Bowls as they are being called – not vegan, but could easily be, and perfect for late spring and summer.
leftover Chicken, baby gem lettuce, Advacado, celery, cucumber, pepper, Sweetcorn, pickled red cabbage, boiled eggs, tomatoes, blue cheese dressing and grated manchego cheese. Ohh and some Homemade Bread 😉
I am cutting the baby gem lettuce into 4 and laying in the bowls, then add the rest of the veg.
The left over Chicken goes on top with a side of my quick pickled Red Cabbage then add the dressing.
A no cook wonder 😇
The bread is my usual Thermomix recipe – 300ml water and a pack of dried yeast into the mug and ‘cooked’ at heat 37, speed 1 for 2 minutes till bubbles appear from the yeast.
Add 500g of bread flour, a pinch of sea salt and mix on dough setting for 3/4 minutes till done. Turn out and leave to rise for at least an hour.
I am splitting the dough in 2 to make 2 baguettes- one for tonight and one for Saturday night – preplanning 👍 Leave to rise again for at least 30 minutes then into a preheated oven (200) – I chuck a cup of water into a tray at the bottom of th oven to create steam, which makes it crusty
Salad, Homemade crusty bread with butter – bliss x
