Homegrown chillies

These gorgeous chillies did not come from our CSA distributor Amelishof, but I harvested them myself — on our balcony! You might remember I swapped a head of endive for a couple of red hot pepper saplings in May. That was a good deal! I throw these buggers in almost any dish, but they keep on coming. I’m thinking of making sambal… :)

And here’s the picture of this week’s CSA loot.

Amelishof organic CSA vegetables week 40, 2010

  • red bell pepper
  • hokkaido pumpkin
  • chicory (curly leaf endive or frisée)
  • red leaf lettuce
  • carrots
  • shallots (yay!)

Menu plan with these (& last week’s) vegetables

  • Courgette omelet with fresh basil, pasta salade with pesto and tomatoes
    [Wednesday] New recipe from ‘Vega Gerechten’ cookbook.
  • Roasted beet salad, cabbage dish with leek & mustard seeds, potato mash
    Have made these recipes from ‘Vega Gerechten’ cookbook before.
  • Chinese take-away [Saturday: read-a-thon]
  • Indian night: Gujarati carrot salad with fresh mint, lime and mustard seeds, basmati rice, Diu corn curry
    Trying out new recipes from World Food Café Global Vegetarian Cooking.
  • Endive-potato mash with blue cheese & cashews
    Easy all-time favourite.
  • Basil spaghetti with sauce of soy cream, mushrooms, leek, sun-dried tomatoes, bell pepper & pinenuts, accompanied by tomato-rocket salad.
    Will just make it up while cooking.
  • And… (drum roll) carrot cake!!! I had it for a treat during the read-a-thon and it was Very Good. The recipe came from a magazine cut-out I had been wanting to try — hope to post it soon!

Carrot cake

I have nothing planned yet for my pie pumpkin. That’s because I want to make something special out of it for the Kookgrrls’ October theme! During the read-a-thon someone mentioned pumpkin pancakes… Yum! And tanabata from In Spring it is the Dawn was eating pumpkin bagels for breakfast.

I did have a really nice Halloween cookies recipe but strangely enough it has disappeared from earth (& cyberspace). Sigh. Maybe one of the other grrls will put up a pumpkin recipe that I can try! :)

Or do you have a nice suggestion for a veggie pumpkin recipe?
