I love eating out of bowls...actually, I rather eat out of a bowl....even with a fork and knife! Weird, I know! The problem is...the bowls I have...just aren't big enough! Seriously, they aren't....I need some largish shallow bowls...I'm on a mission now to find some.
Yesterday I made a perfect bowl meal...Denis Cotter's Crushed New Potatoes with Courgettes, Cherry Tomatoes and Broad Beans. Like most of the recipes I've made from For the Love of Food the ingredient list is long, and I used two pots and one large pan...a true labour of love (for food!).
The new potatoes are crushed with melted butter and sauteed spring onions (yum in its own right) and then topped with a sort of summer stew. For the veggies (which are also delicious in their own right...maybe over couscous? maybe served with fish?...) sautee thinly sliced courgettes in a couple of Tbsp olive oil for a few minutes until they start to look soft, then add in a sliced red onion, handful of cherry tomatoes cut in half and a few cloves of garlic thinly sliced...sautee it all for a few mins longer until soft and tomatoes are breaking down...add in 1/2 a cup or so of water and some chopped basil and let stew...then put it all together and devour!
