I am not one to 'tweet' about what I had for lunch, infact if anybody I follow does do that I tend to unfollow them!
But today was different as, just as I was thinking about what healthy lunch to prepare there was a knock on the door and there was a delivery man delivering me a great box of tenderstem broccoli! Now I know most girls would probably prefer a bouquet of flowers, but I was perfectly happy with this great veg parcel!
That's the delight of doing the work I do, you never know quite what you are going to be offered next - although sometime deliveries are better than others! I have a kitchen full of gadgets that I hardly ever use, but PR companies like me to try them out. I have lots of random un-matching crockery (which I do quite like), and cupboards full of unusual ingredients (see previous blog entry!).
But back to lunch. What to do with the gorgeous green stuff?
Well, in the pack alongside the tenderstem were a few other random ingredients, so like a top Ready Steady Cook chef I was off in a flash, and this is what I produced within 10 minutes - Quinoa with tenderstem broccoli, chives and parsley, topped with pan-fried halloumi and hazelnuts with a lemon dressing - delicious - thank you Tenderstem!
