Last month I shared some vegan eats in my kitchen, I return back to my vegetarian kitchen and share higgledy piggledy assortment of things in my kitchen.
First I share with you natures gift from my garden - last of the colourful tomatoes from the greenhouse; and flavourful they are too.
Next. I went to a Eastern European shop in my lunch hour and came out having purchased a bag full of edible groceries such as this dried Aubergine. I am not sure what I will be doing with it, but I look forward to trying it out.
I also picked this triangular shaped pastry. Now this I did know what to with, I have plans to make Mexican Taquitos.
Brown Fine Bulgar Wheat for a Middle Eastern meal.
Whilst going through some boxes, I found these Cool Chile Co tins: Chile Chipotle Powder and Epazote (unopened), they are past the best before date. I have actually used both in the last couple of days for a gorgeous Sweetcorn soup and it tasted fine to me.
I picked up this ceramic vintage plate and bowl with holes, a colander of sorts from a charity shop. Its like a strawberry strainer, but designed for other fruit and vegetables, I guess. A month or so back, we went to Gloucester and we came across a Romania shop. Of course I wanted to poke my head inside and have a look. D spotted these vegetarian pate tins, we both looked at the small print and it seemed to indicate that it was suitable for vegetarians. I spotted the Salami de Biscotti . It reminded me of Chocolate Salami that I saw appearing across blogosphere last year around Christmas time, except this one was made with dried fruits and nuts.
One of my closest colleagues at work, brought me back a present from The Czech Republic, a box of Marlenka Cocoa Honey Nuggets. She told me that these Markenka sweets are a famous Armenian honey cake. She knows I am vegetarian and said she looked closely at the ingredients and was confident that it was suitable for vegetarians. I have to trust her. When I first had one, I wasn't overly keen on it and the box went away. I tried another only today and realised, actually they are not too bad. They remind me a bit of Japanese mochi rice cakes.
And finally, a little sneaky pressie for my kitchen, wooden measuring spoons with woodland animal prints. For those of you interested I also shared a picture of my kitchen follow this link. I am linking this post with Celia from Fig and Lime Cordial who every month hosts In My Kitchen. Oh before I forget, I am off to the South of France tomorrow, so my next IMK will undoubtedly have a touch of Provence about it.
