Since committing to vegetarianism a few years ago, I’ve try inventing my own dishes at home. Here’s one I made today that is simple and tasty.
Please forgive the lack of accurate weights and measures, I tend to make it up as I go along. You will have your own preferences for how things should taste ofcourse.
Ok so you’re going to boil a cup of rice in three cups of water. I add a vegetable stock cube for flavour, that is optional.
Your black eye beans go in a pan to be gently heated to warm them up. Slice your grapes into smaller pieces, like quartering them. Then the nuts of your choice, I prefer pistachios, chop them up so they’re crumbly.
Once everything is cooked, mix it all together in a bowl with some olive oil and season to taste.
Next is the fun part, we are going to make a sandcastle! It sounds silly but presentation wise, it looks pretty.
