We celebrated Victoria Day this Monday, so we had a long and relaxing weekend. The weather was not friendly, and I had in mind a weekend with smoothies and salads, but it did not turn as I wanted.
The strawberries that I bought for the smoothies ended up in a melt-in-the-mouth goodness: Strawberry Clafoutis. I know I have another post about Clafoutis, which you can read here. This time I used strawberries ( abut 250 grams) but they were giant in size, so I cut them into pieces.
250 g strawberries
400 ml cashew milk (warmed up)
juice from half of lemon
1/4 cup of grape seeds oil
3 tablespoons of sugar
1 cup of all purpose flour
Preheat the oven at 350. Oil a baking dish. Wash, drain and cut the strawberries. Place the strawberries on the baking tray.
Lightly beat the eggs; add the sugar and whisk together until smooth. Stir in the flour.
Add the milk ( warmed up ) and the lemon juice. Pour into the baking dish over the fruits.
Bake for about 40 to 45 minutes until golden brown.
I have to admit this delicious French pudding became mine and my daughter’s favorite dessert. So versatile and easy to make: 15-20 min prep time and 45 minutes baking time and you can have it warm or cold. When I say versatile, I was referring to the variety of fruits that you can use: cherries, grapes, berries and I saw very interesting versions with figs and persimmons on Alison’s Trials blog that I will have to try one day.
Another thing that I love about this delicious dessert is that you don’t have to wait for it to cool down before you can dig in.
There is only one problem with this pudding: it disappears the same day 😉 😉
Additionally, Sunday morning I woke up with a thought to make
Turmeric Onion Flakes Buns.
They turned out yummy, fluffy on the inside but with a crunchy crust on the outside.
Alongside the bunsI also prepared an omelet…
Baked chicken breast and potato ended our long weekend on Monday.
In a deep glass baking dish, I put together the potatoes, yellow onion, and fennel all cuts in thick pieces and the chicken breast cut into chunks.
I seasoned everything with grapeseed oil, lemon juice, garlic powder, and paprika.
I really hope that the next weekend there will be a good weather so I could share some smoothies with you.
