supper for one

Just dropping in for a quick “meatless June” update. Rasmus is away in Spain for a few days for work so I’m cooking for one again.

I often get really lazy when I’m only cooking for myself. My staple when I lived on my own was pasta with a little parmesan and lemon juice on top.

But I was a bit more adventurous today, trying to copy a dish my friend Paul made on Saturday when I was talking wedding planning with my good friend Nada. I bought some fancy mushrooms on the way home from work (I think they’re fancy coz my mum only ever bought the button ones) and¬†broccoli¬†and salad, heated up the griddle pan until it was smoking and threw the mushrooms and broccoli on.

It turned out good! I had par-cooked the broccoli before which helped and it all got this smoky taste. I plonked it onto the salad leaves (hey, it’s just me, no one to impress) and drizzled some balsalmic and a wee bit of chilli oil over the top.

Verdict: Yummy. Not quite as good as Paul’s (I need to get his secret) but good all the same. And meatless!

(Sorry for the kinda dark photo – it was already 9.30pm when I ate)
