Have you ever tried a recipe and look at the end result wondering what you were thinking even attempting it? That’s me when it comes to making bread and cakes. I can cook a mean curry, fry up or stew eyes closed, but baking is so precise, I do not know why I bother sometimes, hahahahaha.
I got the recipe from Seasons and Suppers, head there and laugh with me at what my loaf was supposed to look like, it’s alright, I will not feel bad. And I now know where I went wrong.
So, step one, I used my usual bread recipe which I’ve already shared here, as it was not that much different from the recipe on Seasons and suppers.
So where did I go wrong? I followed all the steps and the dough rose beautifully.
Will I try this again? Of course yes! The taste and aroma of this loaf is out of this world!
The best things about salads is not only are they so easy to put together, but they also give you the chance to load more vegetables in your little ones’ tummies and give different flavour and texture to the same old way of having your vegetables or fruits.
Grapes are quite tasty on their own, but roasting them introduces a whole other flavour profile and you can use them for dessert, to top cakes or salads or even as a snack on their own when chilled.
They are quite easy to roast too. Preheat your oven to 200° C, clean your seedless grapes, About a punnet and a half, toss them in a little bit of olive oil, pinch of salt and thyme (optional). Roast them in a baking pan lined with grease proof paper for 20-30 minutes till they shrivel a bit and the skin is blistering. Keep checking on them and turning them as they roast. Let them cool for a while. Once cooled completely, refrigerate in an airtight container and snack on them or use them in your different dishes.
Let’s get started on the salad:-
This salad is so good you can have it on its own as a snack or light lunch, but it also works well with roast chicken and roast potatoes.
The roasted grapes have a ‘soft’ sweetness that blends well with the creamy goat cheese. The cheese I used here is not sharp and had some hints of rosemary that went well with the other herbs in the dish and the salad dressing. As usual cucumber was the chiller adding the refreshing layer to the salad.
This salad is really tasty, try it and let me know what you think.
