Starting the new week right, following a fabulous bank holiday weekend!
Being alone on Friday night, for some might be the worst idea but for me, is kind of fantastic! This particular evening, I decided to simply cook up all of my favourite things.
Granted, it did make a MASSIVE meal – so maybe pick and choose what speaks to you!
50g chorizo, cubed
1/2 aubergine, sliced lengthways
1/2 avocado, sliced
1/4 onion, sliced
1/2 chilli, finely chopped
3 mushrooms, sliced (these were spare)
Handful of rocket
20g pine nuts
Some soft goats cheese
1/2 sweet potato, sliced into chip shape
1 tbsp pesto
3 tbsp natural yogurt
Heat the oven to approx 180 degrees Celsius. Drizzle the sweet potato with some olive oil, salt and pepper and a little paprika and pop on a baking tray. Add the aubergine to the other side of the pan, brush over some olive oil and roast in the oven for 30 minutes.
In a small pan, fry the onions, chorizo and mushrooms until nice and soft. Set aside.
After about 20 minutes of oven cooking, begin frying the chorizo in a pan until the juices start running. Set these aside. In the same pan, add the scallops and fry about 2-3 minutes each side. You want the pan to be nice and hot so the outside caramelises.
Mix the pesto with the natural yogurt.
Plate everything up and bloody enjoy it!
Yum yum yum!
Love, A x
