It being summer and time to lose baby weight I’m focusing lots on salads. To try to keep it interesting and appealing to eat I’m having lots of different ones.
Broccoli, feta, cherry tomatoes & toasted hazelnut
The Avoca broccoli, cherry tomato, feta and toasted hazelnut is a classic. And quite quick to make. Just lightly steam the broccoli and allow it to cool while toasting the hazelnuts in the oven (being really careful not to let them burn!). I drizzled some balsamic and olive oil on top. I think it could work with pomegranate molasses also.
Smoked duck breast, peach, avocado on a bed of lambs lettuce and rocket
This can work as a starter or as a lunch with some more duck breast. I just used olive oil and some raspberry vinegar as a dressing.
I try in summer to eat even a simple green salad everyday. I take a mixture of leaves, perhaps Spinach and lambs lettuce and drizzle some olive oil, balsamic vinegar and toasted seeds. With whatever protein I have in the fridge it’s a very quick lunch when I’m busy with baby rasher.
Goats cheese, pears and toasted pecans
