No matter that there is broccoli in these golden crispy vegetable stacks … kids and anti-brocco-lites will scoff them up. It’s all to do with 1 Golden 2 Crispy 3 Smell of buttery golden crispiness being created in the pan 4 Tasty stuff – don’t leave out the salt. Not suitable for vegans, though I am sure there is a way, but perfect for an all-vegetable mid-week inexpensive meal.

And I read somewhere that crispy isn’t a proper word. It is on Shared Kitchen! C-R-I-S-P-Y. I LOOOOOVE it. Make them and scoff them up. You may need to double the recipe!
I also love radishes when they are bright red with greenery attached. The greenery is the first part to whither and rot, so when you see them with greenery attached, you know they are super fresh. Read about radishes here Radishes Have you ever eaten hot radishes? No, I don’t mean pungently hot, I mean skipping-in-the-frypan hot! Simply delicious. Check them out.

And a simple but tasty radish salad. Chillies at $1.00 each – are you kidding me? Nope. That’s what they cost here in the supermarket on Waiheke. You need to get creative … If you want a splash of red and some chilli heat, use a little chopped red pepper (capsicum) and chilli flakes! Recipe here Radish Salad
Or learn how to extend the life of your chilli plants. They like warmth but you can keep them trotting along through winter with a bit of TLC. See my winter garden here My Winter Garden. I would say it is a bit sad, but at least I can pick a salad.
Having friends over for an afternoon cuppa? Knock their socks off with these very Frenchified (Is that a word? Well, I’ve done brocco-lites and crispy …) almond petits fours. When I went to school (seems like a lifetime ago), petits four meant little oven treats, or something like that. They are very moreish. Sugar, yes, but at least they have plenty of almonds, so some goodness.

Get cooking, bake the sour cream and rhubarb cake from last week if you haven’t yet (quickly made in a food processor!), and keep your nearest and dearest close by with the delicious goodies you pump out of your kitchen.
