Hello there, this post is my take on New Year!

This means I give a food take on words.

As we are in the early stages of the New Year these are the two words I have chosen!

So we have N E W  YEAR !

Starting with ‘N’

Nutmeg – a winter spice – perhaps an old fashioned spice – conjuring up memories of

warm cosy kitchens, log fires, drawing the curtains, opening a book.

Goes well in a broccoli and stilton soup,

seasoned with salt, freshly ground black pepper and a pinch of nutmeg.

Next we have ‘E’

Eggs – perhaps one of the few foods that should be classed as ‘superfoods’ 

as they are loaded with nutrients some of which are rare in the modern diet.

There are so many wonderful recipes that use eggs

here is a breakfast casserole, a tasty vegetarian recipe.

Continuing with ‘W’

Watercress – With deep green leaves, and crisp, paler stems, watercress is related to mustard and is one of the strongest-tasting salad leaves available. It has a pungent, slightly bitter, peppery flavour and is highly nutritious, containing significant amounts of iron, calcium, vitamins A, C and E. 

The recipe I’ve chosen is

Cod Roasted with watercress sauce and roasted cherry tomatoes

Well that’s my take on N E W
