A(nother) Seasonal (mostly tomato) Salad

in Natural Medicine2 months ago (edited)


Last night's supper was really seasonal. A wonderfully flavoured tomato and brinjal salad. The recipe from my friend, Nina's book, All Fired Up.

Served with flatbreads and home made cottage cheese. She recommends Greek yoghurt. Both seem to work. Lose the dairy and it's vegan. If a vegan protein side/addition was essential, I would probably do a lentil salad rather than beans - something that would not detract too much from the flavours and texture of the central dish.

A great prepare ahead meal or side. There were no leftovers, sadly. The Husband ate three quarters of it, so next time, and there will be next times, I will triple up!

Until next time, be well

    That is MY kinda dish. I'm such a huge fan of eggplants. This looks like it'd be good with nigella seeds on top.

    I've been eating a lot of coconut yoghurt of late.

    Nigella is cumin, right? It includes toasted cumin seeds that are ground. It wouldn't be the same without 😀
