Crazy Days Challenge - Day 42 - Cooking the Books Challenge - SOOZE'S CHOICE

Sooze's Choice was :

Book 27 = Super Easy One Pound Meals by Miguel Barclay

Page 36 = Sweet & Hot Aubergine

I sort of had the ingredients ... unfortunately not the star of the show which should have been Aubergine.  So I made do with a piece of red pepper instead.  Also I had to substitute the spring onions for some more red onion rings.  And obviously I don't use honey so I used Agave instead.

I think it looks pretty similar!!

I didn't like the taste though, much too sweet for me.  It didn't help that I think I over seasoned it and once you put too much seasoning in, it's hard to get it out with such small proportions.

If I made this again I would adapt it for sure.   I would definitely try it with the aubergine, not use any liquid sweetener and no salt and pepper until the very end.

Tomorrow it is Bumblebee's choice of Book 8  Page 9.

  1. I have all Miguel's books and use them quite a lot, there are a few recipes I have tried and wasn't keen, I think there is a new book coming later this year.

    1. Yes, he's working on it at the moment. I follow him on Instagram and watch his stories every day. Seemingly the book has suddenly changed tack ... but he's being very mysterious!!


Comments are now turned off for this old blog of mine. Thank you for reading the posts, I hope you enjoyed them. xx
