The wonder of fresh, simple ingredients

It is my opinion that too often we over complicate the process of preparing a flavoursome meal. Yet, the old adage holds true – fresh, beautiful ingredients create the best-tasting dishes.

We are on holiday at the moment, and that means a few things – stunning summer produce, easy trips to orchards and the farm gate, and not wanting to spend time in the kitchen when we could be at the beach.

Last night we found ourselves in transit, short on the usual spices, herbs and condiments, so we got creative with what we had: fresh, beautiful veges from the orchard near where we were staying!

So we used our intuition and creativity, and whipped this up in about 20 minutes:


And what a flavoursome meal it was! Healthy, whole,and nourishing. Smashed avocado and lemon, crudités, quinoa and amaranth gently flavoured with wild mint and parsley, and of course, salt and pepper steak. Delish!
