Cooking, like poetry, must flow from your stock of ingredients and experiences..
At around noon today I decided to make lunch. I stock garbanzo beans, olive oil and lemons all the time. So, the hummus was made quickly, but my freezer stock of Syrian bread was all gone. I decided I could make Indian bread instead, from a mix I keep in the refrigerator, thanks to a recipe I read on a blog, (see link below).
I roasted some peppers and zucchini while I made the naan on the stove. Ten minutes later, lunch was ready.
Since we had a lovely sunny day, the hummus and the grilled vegetables, plus fresh Naan, pears and cheese provided us with a lovely picnic by the lake.
