This page is dedicated to delicious treats that have been created on the spot from whatever may be in the cupboards. An excellent way of keeping cooking to a budget and using what you have left!
Recipe no1. Pea + Chipotle Dip
So simple and so delicious!! This is a super economical alternative to guacamole. Boil up a couple of cups of frozen peas, blend up with half a lemon juice (or lime), a teaspoon of chipotle flakes, and a pinch of salt to taste. For extra creaminess I added a tablespoon of sour cream. Yumotle!
Recipe no2. Sweet Potato Skins
I used the skins from my fishcake recipe (no.6) on 'The Poached Egg Page'... Scoop out the flesh leaving just a slither of potato on the inside. After inventing the pea dip, once again I boiled a cup of peas and blended with half a roasted garlic (about 8 cloves) which was put in the oven when I roasted the potato. Season with salt, pepper and a dash of lemon. Spread the mixture into the skins and cover with grated / soft goats cheese. For the topping, I diced up together a few mint leaves, 1 spring onion and some watercress and sprinkled on top. Return to the oven until crispy! Yumskins!
