This weekend I was unfortunate enough to be burdened with some wisdom tooth pain. I had to abandon most of my commitments, including work and study, but trying out new recipes was possible; I was in dire need of coming out of an enforced liquid diet. I experimented with Natasha Corrett’s turmeric omelette with some leftover vegetables in the fridge – I absolutely hate food waste (who doesn’t?!) and this weekend has also allowed me to peruse some very ripe bananas I have accumulated from the last week or so.
As it is Fairtrade Fortnight until 8 March, I plan to support the cause by posting a couple of recipes which uses Fairtrade products. Buying Fairtrade goods not only ensures the producers get fair wages and good working conditions, communities are also benefactors, with many schools and small businesses profiting from our everyday food and product choices.
Pancakes aren’t just for Shrove Tuesday; they are for life.
As it was Pancake Day a few days ago, I celebrated by creating a stack of 6 pancakes, made from awesomely whole and healthy ingredients. I cannot tell you how quickly I devoured the whole stack, leaving a very clean plate at the end.
My love of baked goods for breakfast will not stop in 2015. Danish pastries, muffins and croissant are among my faves.
