I think sharing recipes are a great idea, just not got much time today- those flipping lesson plans becom, grrrr >:( Katex

Don't really know what to call this recipe but its made up of lots of Mediterranean vegetables.

Roast-
Tomatoes
Courgettes
red onions
celery
minced garlic
All the different colour peppers

some sea salt

Pour over a good olive oil with some good balsamic vinegar

Roast in the oven until the vegetables are soft and then add loads of tomato puree

Put back in the oven until well roasted.Then take out and put in a large oven glass jug or similar container. Add roasted tomato pesto and then blend.

Store in the fridge.

Its delicious with bread sticks or a topping for fish or chicken.

I make up a batch each week and its a great way to get loads of health giving Mediterranean vegetables down you  :D

Chocolate Velvet

This is my mums recipe and has been handed down.

Bash some plain crisp biscuits in a plastic bag

A big bar or of Cadburys chocolate

Tin of sweet condensed milk

Some real vanilla essence

Melt the chocolate in a basin over some boiling water until its runny but don't let it burn.

Add the condensed milk  and vanilla, then stir in the biscuits.

Put some tin foil on a flat tray and pour the mixture in and the cool in the fridge.

The beauty of this recipe is that you can add anything you like, use dark chocolate or even mars bars, it always turns out delicious.

Used to make this a lot

Surprise Lemon Pudding    serves 4

Finely grated zest and juice of 4 lemons
3and a half oz(100g) butter softened
6oz(175g) caster sugar
4 eggs, size 2, separated
2oz (50g) plain flour
4floz(112ml) milk

7in(18cm) souffle dish or pudding basin - oven 350F 180C gas mark 4


Butter the dish.

Using and electric of hand- held beater, cream the butter with the sugar to form a creamy white, fluffy mass, which will stand up in soft peaks.

Add the lemon zest and juice. The mixture will probably curdle at this point. Do not fret, just add the egg yolks, one at a time, beating continuously, then beat in the flour and milk.

With a clean wire of electric hand whisk, beat the egg whites until they are firm and stand in snowy peaks.
Fold them gently but thoroughly into the mixture.
Pour into the buttered dish, place the dish in a roasting tin and pour hot water into the tin until it comes halfway up the sides of the dish.

Bake for about 45 minutes, until the top is golden brown and the pudding has risen.
Under the sponge will be a layer of thick lemon custard.
Serve hot of warm.

Hope that you enjoy it Larky - any leftover cold from the fridge is nice too.

We did your Lentil and Barley Roast last eve - it tastes quite meaty - had to use green lentils though. Looking at your recipes are you not a meat eater ?

This is refreshing

Lemonade

2 Lemons
1lb of sugar
1oz citric acid
1pt boiling water

Peel lemons very thinly (no pith) .
Squeeze lemons and place peel, juice, sugar & citric acid in a large bowl or jug.
Add 1pint boiling water & stir until sugar dissolves.
Leave to stand for 9hrs.

Dilute to taste.

I have been making my Grannie's pasta sauce rescipe for 35 years now!  Just wondering if any of you have any new ones for me to try.  Here is the recipe:

 Serves 2

smoked bacon
2 cloves of garlic
olive oil
freshly ground black pepper
salt
sugar
I tin of plum tomatoes
fresh parsley (I buy in bulk and freeze)
a little water

Method

Snip bacon into small pieces with scissors and fry in the olive oil until the fat runs and the bacon gets a nice colour.  Add the finely chopped garlic to the pan and stir quickly.  (I never let the garlic actually fry in the oil since that makes the garlic taste bitter).  Then add the tomatoes, pepper, salt, sugar and stir and break up the tomatoes with a wooden spoon.  Add a little water to the can the tomatoes were in and swill around then add that to the sauce.  Reduce heat to the lowest simmer and leave for at least 45 minutes with lid on. I then add the parsley when I put the pasta on to boil.  Serve with grated cheese of your choice or parmesan.
