Day 2 on our 100 day food journey.
I was reminded at a recent family gathering , when a friendly neighbour, who owns the Central Takeaway here in Thomastown very kindly gifted us with boxes of her famous pizza. As we munched our way through this delicious fare, our youngest son Murray piped up that they were deprived as children as I wouldn’t allow take-aways into the house - quote unquote - apparently my reply was always ‘ if you think I am paying that kind of money for something that is made with flour, yeast & water with a few tomatoes and a bit of cheese thrown on top, you have another thought coming. I could buy a roast of beef for that’.
So today's theme is ‘Forget the Takeaway’.
175 grams of flour.
A good pinch of salt.
A good pinch of smoked paprika.
1 tablespoons olive oil.
75 mls of water.
2 tablespoons rapeseed oil.
Cajun Chicken, pear salsa & sour cream
Garlic mushroom & courgettes with herby hummus & feta cheese.
Roasted pepper, balsamic tomatoes, broccoli pesto & Brie cheese.
The flatbreads can be made and left aside. Make all the toppings. When ready to serve, preheat an oven to 190cen, apply the toppings & pop into the oven for 10minutes. As Mary Berry would say-‘no soggy bottoms’
Delicious served with broccoli slaw from day 1.
Enjoy, see you tomorrow
