This weekend I got in the mood to cook up a few things. I started with these Cinnamon Sugar Rattles from the Sneaky Chef cookbook. They’re sweetened chickpeas, roasted until crispy. Or until burned, in my case. They ended up in the trash.
While the ill-fated rattles were cooking, I whipped up another Sneaky Chef recipe: Green Puree. This isn’t something to eat by itself, but rather something to hide by the tablespoon-full in foods that my unsuspecting family will scarf down. I have my doubts – spinach, broccoli & peas, while a lovely color, are pretty vile to a veggie-phobe such as myself. The way the kitchen smelled while I was preparing this was enough to make Neil open a window and turn on a fan. Let’s hope it does better hidden in a meatball.
Before leaving the kitchen, Neil made sure to let me know what he thought of this cookbook.
I did make one thing this weekend that everybody liked. Thank goodness for slice & bake, eh?
