August ingredients

I will be giving the char-grilled aubergine and tomato salad a trial run for when my vegetarian friends arrive next month.

August ingredients

Definitely Broad Bean Salad with Pancetta and Sherry Vinegar for me. Plus all time favourite - Piedmont Roasted Peppers. Noreen you have got me really looking at all the other lovely August produce and recipes too. My sister in law has masses of courgettes at the moment so will try the courgette and potato cakes with mint and feta cheese. Thanks so much for all the advice. x

August ingredients....

August ingredients are a bit different over here!!

But we still eat salads some days, and the avocados are wonderful at the moment!!

August food

I did my trial run of the char-grilled aubergine with roasted tomatoes.

It was great (well we thought so)and very tasty. The only thing that was different was I could only buy the full-fat creme fraiche. It would be ideal for a light lunch or slightly small portions it would be good for a starter.

As the tomatoes and aubergine are prepared and cooked before hand it only leaves it to be assembled at the last minute and that doesn't take long at all.

Hi Wendy, do you think you could do this recipe with any other type of cheese ? I do like feta but I prefer other cheeses sometimes. I've always got an aubergine in the fridge and always looking for different recipes.

Hope all is well with you and the pets:0)

That salad sounds good!

Did you salt the eggplant slices before cooking?
I don't usually bother, but wondered if it would make any difference?
Bitterness isn't usually an issue with the new types of eggplant.

VE and Sonya

Hello there

VE. I think it would work with any cheese, in fact,to my mind it would work just as well without cheese.
The Feta cheese added just another flavour but my daughter does only likes Cheshire so I will use one of the Italian mild cheeses.

All animals fit and well.

Sonya. As a rule I don't salt aubergines because, as you say, they are not that bitter any more. As it was the first time of making this recipe I did and it was hardly worth the efford for the small amount of liquid that came out. I wouldn't bother again because to my mind it wouldn't make any difference to the overall taste.

I hope this has given you some some help.

August Ingredients.


I am taking the plunge and doing the chicken with garlic this weekend.

I shall report back.

I was thinking of serving as a roast chicken dinner with veg and roasties, rather than doing anything fancy with it. But saying that, I may do mash - but only americans serve mash with a roast don't they? lol.

Mash and roasties

My mum always served roast and mashed with a Sunday roast in the winter and in the summer months it was with new potatoes. I thought that was normal and also mash and roasties with Christmas dinner.
