green bean salad with mustard seeds and thyme
Greetings from New York! Heres a post to wet your whistle while I'm away!
I finally had a moment to peruse Yotam Ottolenghis Plenty and frankly he is my God. I had a huge boozey afternoon dinner party with sechewan potato, roasted sweet potato, grilled asparagus, green bean salad and caramalised roast garlic tart. It was completely DELICIOUS. The tart recipe is being saved for the cookbook ;)
