Sometimes objects call you....looking at this chair @claydonauctions I did not think it was for me.... But I couldn't stop thinking about it, something about being different and unique... discover its potential was intriguing.. and I bought the unsold chair with the promise to make it look pretty and a bit more wanted...watch this space!

Today an Italian classic and family favourite for our vegan lunch : minestrone di verdure with cavolo nero and my own cannellini beans from the vegetable patch. Naturally vegan: just lots of vegetables and a dollop of pesto (a classic pesto, no cheese) and toasted breadcrumbs crust. It is really delicious and comforting.
Just make a soffritto with onion carrot and celery, I used extra virgin olive oil, bay leaf and rosemary and gently fried the soffritto. Add chopped garlic and any chopped veg you have in the fridge: I have used cabbage, leek, tomato, potato, cavolo nero and beans. Add veg stock or water and simmer until cooked. Serve with a drizzle of olive oil, pesto and fried breadcrumbs. 😋
Baking more sourdough.... And still experimenting to find my perfect loaf.
I could not live without it! This week I used 50% white flour and 50%wholegrain spelt flour.... Adding a bit of walnuts in one of the loaves. I baked the bread following directions from @poilane book and I love the result! Great book..
Using my last beetroot from the vegetable patch... and my last few onions to create this nice and healthy beetroot and onion tart tatin. Really nice for a veganuary lunch or dinner. Served with a nice salad. ... I will make soon a delicious Cici CoCo classic beertroot recipe...###
320g vegan puff pastry sheet
30g vegan butter or extra virgin olive oil
2 red onions, sliced into thin wedges
1 tbsp light soft brown sugar
1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
large thyme sprig, leaves only
400g cooked beetroots, cut into wedges (vac-packed are fine but roasted are better)
Juice of half lemon
1 garlic clove, crushed
salt and black pepper
thyme leaves or basil leaves
Toasted flaked almonds or walnuts (optional)
You will need an ovenproof pan or dish about 20cm diameter (I fried the veg in a pan and move them to a dish😉)
Preheath the oven to 200°C/Fan 180°C/Gas 6. Take the sheet of pastry out of the fridge. Cut a disc of greaseproof paper the size of the top of your pan: this is your guide to cut the pastry.
Heat the butter or oil in the pan. When it has melted, add the red onions and cook over a medium to low heat until they have started to soften. Add the sugar and vinegar. Stir to dissolve the sugar – a bubbly sauce will form around the onions.
Sprinkle in the thyme, then add the wedges of beetroot. Season with plenty of salt and pepper, add the garlic and the lemon juice then stir to coat the beetroots with the sauce and reduce to a syrup. It will take about 10 minutes. Take it off the heath and leave to cool to room temperature. Make sure the beetroots are nicely displayed in a single layer as the final tart will look prettier.
Cut the puff pastry to fit the paper circle.
Cover the onions and beetroots with the pastry, tucking in the edges. Bake for 20–25 minutes until the pastry is puffed up. Remove the tart from the oven and leave to stand for 10 minutes, loose the edges with a knife then invert it on to a large plate. Sprinkle with more thyme leaves and the almonds and serve it sliced with a nice sala
