courgette. green bean. tahini.

Apr 14

A few weeks ago, I received an  email from Ocado, my absolute favourite online grocery delivery store “We love your food pictures on Instagram! Would you be interested in a collaboration with us?”

Would I be interested. Heck yeah!!

So one sunny weekend I got busy, prepared and shot three delicious dishes to promote a nationwide competition by Ocado. Find details on how to enter on the Ocado blog here: #aboutmyfood I am delighted to now publish the first blog segment of our collaboration.

I chose a recipe from River Cottage Veg Every Day  This book is colourful, creative and I love that it’s not written by a Vegetarian. Hugh is simply wanting to persuade folks to eat more vegetables. Because vegetables are the foods that do us the most good and our planet the less harm.

_0898It’s all in the tahini dressing

1/2 garlic clove

2 tablespoons of tahini

finely grated zest and juice of 1/2 lemon

juice of 1/2 orange

2 tablespoons olive oil

sea salt and freshly ground black pepper _0897_0905_0900_0899The salad

2 tablespoons olive oil

3 medium courgettes, try green and yellow for colour

juice of 1/2 lemon

1 red chilli, finely chopped

125 French beans, trimmed

1 small salad bag

12 oven dried tomatoes

a handful of mint _0903_0901_0904_0896_0908_0902

_0907For the dressing, throw the garlic into a bowl with tahini, lemon zest and juice, orange juice, a grid of black pepper and stir well. If the dressing feels too thick, thin it down with a little water or add a little more orange juice. Add the olive oil, salt n pepper.

For the salad – heat olive oil in pan. Toss courgettes until brown. Bring salt water to boil, tip in french beans and blanch for one minute. Drain and add to the wok for a minute or two.

Assemble salad leaves in large shallow dish, scatter over courgettes, beans, tomatoes and shredded mint. Trickle dressing generously over the whole lot and serve!
