Pie Night – gluten free, vegetarian
We had a birthday dinner for my cousin last week so I wasn’t able to make this meal when I had planned, but I am going to make it tonight! There will be a beef pie and a mushroom, thyme, lentil and kale pie.

A repeat from last week.

Carrot + Black Bean + Coriander Soup – gluten free, vegan
This recipe is from Nigel Slater’s ‘Eat’ – a brilliant “little book of fast food”. I’ll be having some homemade rye bread with this soup; I am trying out this recipe from Petite Kitchen.
The recipe for the slow cooked lemon zucchini is from Petite Kitchen. On top of the zucchini we had shredded, slow cooked chicken. It was delicious, and I look forward to making this again and again.
For the chicken:
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 cloves of garlic, finely chopped
1/2-1 preserved lemon, finely chopped
2 brown onions, thinly sliced
2 chicken breasts, skin removed
Heat a frying pan over a medium heat and add the olive oil, onions and garlic. Once translucent add the preserved lemon and mix through. Bury the chicken breast in the onion mixture, turn the heat down to low and put the lid on and leave to cook through, approximately 40 minutes. Once cooked, either leave whole or pull apart. Serve on the zucchini.
Modified Eggplant Involtini – vegan, gluten free
Eggplants are still on special at the fruit and vege shop – that means we are having this meal again. Yay!
Eye Fillet Steak + Salad + Kumara Slices – gluten free
Chicken Breast + Slow-cooked Lemon Zucchini – gluten free
The zucchini recipe is from ‘The Petite Kitchen Cookbook’ and one I have been wanting to try as courgettes are not in season. Well I didn’t think they were but we picked some up yesterday from a farmers market, so they must be.
Smoked Salmon – gluten free
Not sure how I’ll serve the smoked salmon this week. I really liked it with the roast vegetable and lentil salad but something different would be good too.
