Recipe No 1- in the Magic 10

In a recent post I mentioned that part of my aim for #minimalistliving is to be a better cook, but have 10 delicious recipes that I learn off by heart which means we eat healthy, vegetarian food as part of our simple, minimalist lifestyle.

I am testing different recipes out on my wife over the next few weeks and giving her a little score card so that she can decide which meals she likes, and which are not for the top ten.

The first one met with success, a full 100 per cent success rate! It’s from Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall’s River Cottage Veg Recipe Book, and it’s the Caponata. You can find the recipe here;

It has such a lovely depth of flavour, and although it’s in the Tapas section, we used it as a main meal with basmati rice. There are quite a few ingredients, but it feels like you need all of them to produce the flavour. We’re going to try the leftovers tomorrow with flatbread.

My wife as the meat eater of the family has suggested that it would be really lovely with some pan seared beef on top, so we’re going to have a go at trying that on top of hers next time.

If you get a chance to try it, let me know what you think
