wave Hi Sue,

I thought it looked like a dish you might like as I know you can eat aubergine. Let us know how it turns out. I am ordering aubergines & the right cheeses for my weekly delivery tomorrow.

I love aubergine but am not too keen on cheese.

I'll try that again!

TA!!surprised  I can't imagine anybody not liking cheese!  I absolutely love it.....any sort, but the stronger the better.  I especially love blue cheese.

Oh, I love goats cheese too, Danuta.  There's one called Ribblesdale Blue, which a deli where we used to live in the Midlands stocked, it was one of my most favourite cheeses ever.  Haven't seen it anywhere locally down here though, will have to see if I can get it online.

I can't stand the 'manky mouth' I get after eating it.

I'll try that again!

I have just ordered some Middle Eastern herb & spice mixtures from this company; a friend recommended them as I found the ones from Waitrose tasted of very little other than dust. I needed some Za' atar for this aubergine recipe but ended up with a bit of a list for my Spring food experiments.

If your order comes to £20 delivery is free. They sell all sorts of food items, some of which are very hard to track down. My order should arrive early next week¦.I shall have to get my tagine out¦¦.laugh I last used in the past summer when I cooked lamb with my own ripe apricots¦it was tasty but lacked something as far as the spices & herbs were concerned. This problem should be solved by next week.

 

****DAMN  devildevildevildevildevildevildevildevildevil Sorry TA !!!!!

Not a problem my lovely!  Those spice mixes look good.  I don't know why I bother, I cook so rarely.

I'll try that again!

Nadine, the aubergine cheesecake.....or rather, my version of it.....was lovely, husband said he really liked it too.  I didn't use tomatoes (although am sure it would be delicious with them) as they still have an effect on my mouth (can't wait to see the specialist dietician to see what she has to say about that).  I added a sliced courgette - first brushed with oil and precooked along with the aubergines - and some sliced mushrooms.  I used plenty of black pepper and rock salt, and a liberal sprinkling of chopped rosemary and thyme.  I didn't have any feta (thought I had....well, I did have, forgot I'd used it up couple of days ago doh), so just grated some strong Cheddar over the veggies, before pouring over the cream, cream cheese and egg mix.  It was rather like a quiche without the pastry, quite delicious.  We'll have the remainder of it cold with salad for lunch tomorrow.

I'll definitely make it again - a lot, I should think.  Will use feta next time, although may perhaps try it with brie or mozzarella too.

Mmmmmm!!  i_am_hungry

It sounds lovely Sue. I think it will be a useful dish to play around with throughout the summer months. I will try it as soon as the parcel arrives. Glad your husband enjoyed it too....it's great you can both eat the same dishes rather than cooking 2 different ones.smile  ok

I like the little jars they come in Nadine, can I have them when you've finished..I want to have a go at making Harissa this summer when my chillis are ready and the jars would be just the right size.

So sorry Janet, a friend has already bagged (&/or begged) them for her powdered pigments, she's a painter & mixes her own colours. Somewhere on the net I have seen a company who sells these little jars....I will try to find it but it might take a while, unless I am really lucky.....!!   smile

Mmmmm I love harissa ! I use it a lot. I see that same company do the variety with rose petals added....I haven't tried that version yet....maybe with a later order.

Ooh I think I have a recipe somewhere for a rose petal Harissa, I have a few roses in the garden, but they are never particularly productive.

I was looking for recipes using fresh curry leaves (as I can now buy them through Ocado, along with a lot of other exciting new fresh ingredients they are delivering now).

I came across this one for Parsi Potatoes with Egg, a tasty quick meal.
