this is... something i'm surprised i like
Heading up to the local fruit & veg shop today to buy tonight's dinner ingredients I had a flashback to earlier this year when I tried Leek for the first time. I remembered thinking "Leek, where have you been all my life"! It was an expected nice tasty savoury surprise.
On the dinner table tonight was
Chicken, Leek & Risoni Soup
1 teaspoon oil
1 leek, sliced
1 chicken breast fillet, thinly sliced
4 cups chicken stock
1/3 cup risoni or other small pasta
1 tablespoon flat-leaf parsley, chopped
sea salt and cracked black pepper
Heat the oil in a saucepan over medium heat. Add the leek and chicken. Cook for 2 minutes Add the stock and pasta. Cook for 8 minutes or until the pasta is al dente. Stir through the parsley, salt and pepper. Serves 2.
I think for 'This Is' next week I would like to suggest a theme - "This is... a favourite recipe I would like to share".
