With this in mind, yesterday we headed to our local(ish) Morrisons store, which has recently refitted its fruit and vegetable section. We'd heard some really good reviews of it, but even so I was amazed at what I saw. A run of the mill supermarket selection transformed and extended with piles of exotic vegetables that I actually need to look up to remind myself of what they are! And the greens section has water misted over it continuously to keep things fresh. Never seen that before!
I know it is a little sad to get excited about a supermarket, and in general I am not a fan of the places, but I had to seriously restrain myself from cramming too much into the trolley. The prices could have been a bit lower, but you can't have everything. Turmeric root - they actually had turmeric root! And the mushroom selection...well, I just hope it sells well enough to continue so we can indulge ourselves there once a month.
Onto this week's meals. As ever they are plant-based, with a little room in the schedule left for leftovers which I am trying to have more of to lighten the daily cooking burden.
Black eyed pea & vegetable lemony stew
enough leftovers to have for lunch with bread
Dosa (Indian crispy pancakes) with vegetable curry and dhal
never made these before but I loved them in India
Lentil Herder's Pie with sweet potato topping
Mushroom & lentil pie, potatoes or sweet potatoes and greens
the filling is leftover from our roast dinner on Sunday
Vegetable & bean burger, with a bun and mixed veg fries
am determined to crack a 'chewy' texture burger, rather than a squashy one
Slow cooked vegetable soup
...with added greens
Mexican Bean pasta soup
we're back on the daily smoothie wagon
Almond & quinoa muffins
Omega rich flapjack (new recipe I'm working on)
