Zucchini Cups

These are so simple to make I couldn't believe it. Could be made in advance and served cold in the lunch box, as a quick snack using left overs to hand or dedicated to lunch or an evening meal with salad or veggies.
* using a pealer make long strips of zucchini and line a grease cup cake baking tray. One around the outside and one cut in half placed across the bottom. This becomes your casing and I swear it's delicious and you won't get any complaints at sneaking in and extra veg.
* add anything your family like into the cup as long as it will cook or heat through in about 15 minutes ... I've used finely chopped tomatoe, spring onion and salmon today but any left overs of cooked chicken bacon or roast veggies are great. Get creative!
* then 3/4 fill each one with lightly beaten egg covering your contents.
* finally top with grated cheese and a sprinkle of lemon pepper.
* Bake until golden brown about 15-20 minutes in a moderate oven.

Blini with creamed cheese and chive dressing

Blini with creamed cheese and chive dressing
These fritter type pancakes made with potato are delicious. Give them a try sometime maybe even tea tonight.

  • Boil, drain and mash 2 potatoes ... set aside to cool.
  • Pan fry 1/2 an onion and also let cool.
  • When all cool mix together with salt & pepper, a handful of chopped parsley, 200ml cream, the yolk of an egg and the whisked egg white...
  • Pan fry in vegetable oil 10cm fritters until golden brown on both sides.
Serve topped with a cream cheese and chive dressing (thinned with a little cream if necessary)and any thing else you desire. My choice for tonight is char grilled zucchini ribbons,chives and a drizzle of olive oil.


Other toppings could be *thin cucumber ribbons * a simple rocket salad dressed with oil and balsamic *thinly sliced smoked salmon.
