Roast Cauliflower Cous Cous & Almond Macaroons

RECIPEpic3Linda Sang

One of my favourite things to enjoy over winter is cauliflower. Such a sweet satisfying vegetable. Good for those of us looking at reducing carbohydrates. This recipe for cauliflower couscous can be eaten as a side dish with anything in place of regular wheat-based couscous or potatoes.

Broad Beans (Salad & Hummus)

We all love spring. As a newbie gardener I am very excited to come back after a month      away to see the broad beans that were sown months ago laden with pods. If your broad beans are young enough they don’t need to be double peeled,
but in most cases after shelling your pods of beans, you blanch them in boiling salted water for a minute or so, refresh them in cold water and then peel the outer skin of the … Read more »
