Well this year, we planted successionally and only what we needed, for example 2 courgette plants and that's still plenty! But still there has come a time now when we have lots and lots of food and must use it up for fear of feeling ashamed and wasteful.
This is where Andrew's new culinary masterpiece will come in handy. The Allotment Plot Frittata :)
This is all the stuff that goes into a 2 person version and the starred ingredients are those we grew ourselves, just to show you:
* Chard stems and leaves
* Broad beans
* Dwarf french beans
oil and seasoning
It's one of those recipes where you just have to see what you have and work with it, (there is a recipe in the River Cafe cookbook that's just for a lemon and sorrell one!). All you do is constantly stir, lightly season throughout the process and just have a relaxing time (maybe sipping a glass of wine would help the whole thing move along).
The best way to explain is to show you....
* the first thing is to parboil the potatoes (chopped and sliced here)
* then get the chorizo cooking and add a little olive oil
* add in chopped up greens
* courgette goes in last; stir and flip extra fancy like...
* Add in your leafy chard tops, it shrinks down to nothing. Then the potato goes in too. Looking good!!
* Egg time and you have 3 large ones to break and whisk - no shell please, that all goes in the compost!
* After allowing it to cook enough to fill the gaps and have some solidity it all goes in the grill - at this point it's good to have a guard dog to watch for burning :)
It's ready !! :)
* And tah dah!!! Yummy
Love and hugs
