November Menu

Making fresh pizza, oiled pizza base
Made a good soup today: Thai spinach. Boil spinach, add coconut milk, ginger, garlic and lemon or lime juice. Whizz it up till it's smooth. I also added cumin. I would have put lemon grass and fresh coriander but I didn't have any.
It was bloody delicious.
I also made fresh pizza with roasted vegetables (aubergine, courgette, red pepper, red onions, roasted garlic) with capers and pickled green peppercorns. 
This is a good recipe for the base from Pogo's vegan café:
2 teaspoons of fresh yeast in a bowl with 1 1/2 cups of warm water and 1 teaspoon of sugar. Leave it for 10 minutes until it froths. Then add 2 cups of flour. Mix. Then add 1 more cup of flour with some salt. Make a ball. Knead ball on floured surface for 5 minutes. Leave the ball in a covered oiled basin for one hour. Then press dough into baking tin, add toppings. 
Easy and effective. 
If the yeast doesn't froth, you need to buy fresher yeast.
