With Autumn (Fall) in full swing now here in Australia, the days are still quite pleasant and warm, the nights start to cool off just a little after dark which makes cooking warmer seasonal meals such as roasted vegetables more enticing. As the heat cools and the sticky humid days have past I find this is one of my favourite times of the year.
Not quite cool enough to get out the slow cooker Autumn (Fall) does brings out this earthy feeling of root vegetables and baked home style meals, back to simple home cooking. As we get ready to cozy up into our winter woolies Autumn is the perfect transitional time to start nesting and getting into the garden planting seedlings, vegetables and getting our hands a little dirty.
I have the perfect Autumn salad for you earthy beetroot with thyme, sweet honey sesame carrots topped with a fresh citrus orange dressing added to leafy green lettuce and Persian feta cheese. Not too heavy but still enough to make you feel satisfied and full. Delectable on it’s on or if you prefer as a side dish to a simple roast chicken.(more…)
