It has been quiet here for a while.. Too quiet for too long! Luckily it has not been that quiet in my kitchen over the last couple of days and I am going to show you more of what I have up to recently! All that thanks to a good, long holiday break – I am nearly at peace with the fact that it is over now, and I really appreciate the extra time I had to catch up on many of my when-I-have-some-time-I-will-finally: read this book/see this film/ dig out this camera manual and actually read it/ check out these blogs/ learn this software/ clean this closet (delete as appropriate).
I don’t quite get the whole concept of the New Year’s resolutions but this year I have decided to go against myself and actually make one – focus more on what’s important to me. And hopefully it will show here!
Today I quickly whipped up a rather uninspirational but light and very tasty lunch – grilled asparagus with feta cheese, honey & mustard dressing and roasted figs. Hard to beat good old grilled veggies for me!
Grilled asparagus with feta cheese, honey & mustard dressing and roasted figs
Ingredients (2 portions)
- 2 figs
- 1/3 cup honey + extra for drizzling
- extra virgin olive oil
- coarse sea salt
- fresh ground pepper
- 3 tbsp Dijon mustard
- 2 tsp lemon juice
- feta cheese
- Heat the oven to 220C
- Drizzle asparagus with the olive oil, sprinkle with sea salt and pepper. Drizzle figs with honey and place both under the grill on a baking tray lined with baking paper.
- Grill for 15 minutes and prepare a dressing in the meantime: mix the rest of the honey with mustard, extra virgin olive oil and lemon juice, season.
- Dress the asparagus and crumble feta cheese, enjoy with the figs while still hot!
