March 2020 - This month we made some White Bean and Red Lentil Burgers from the sweary Thug Cookbook. Different, easy and tasty. From a vegetarian book, Food For Friends, we made Cauliflower & Green Bean Korma. Subtle, but everyone seemed to enjoy it.
The final recipe this month was a Nigel Slater one, sweet roasted roots that were then simmered in stock with both red and puy lentils. This was Lesley's favourite and she will be having that for dinner this evening!
February 2020 - we explored some recipes from the Thug Cookbook - very sweary, but great recipes. We did Oat Griddle Cakes with Blueberry Sauce, Spiced Chickpea Wraps with Tahini Dressing, A Roasted Beet and Quinoa Salad, and from another book Spiced Coconut Rice with Shredded Carrots. All were very nice and ones to add to the notebook to do again in the future. If I don't add these things to my notebook, I can never find them again!
There was no meeting in January 2020 as too few people were available
