A great twist on two favourites !
Summer continues with loads of sunny days, meaning the solar oven is in over-drive 🙂 The green beans in the garden are also in over-drive so it was time to make an old favourite that cooks just beautifully in the solar oven…. Greek style braised beans.
Adding to the inspiration was a fresh chunk of Feta Cheese that I picked up from George (originally from Crete) in a local market.
The only thing missing was something so soak up the succulent juices…. to stick with the “Greek” theme, I served this with little rice shaped pasta (a bit like Orzo) also from George and Crete ….
The whole meal took on another aspect by adding slight twists to the original recipes…. A bit more dried Oregano to the beans, the Paneer (usually used in indian dishes) added a creamy protein along with the Feta crumbled over the beans just before serving. The pasta drizzled generously with good organic Olive oil made this a rich vegetarian Sunday lunch 😉
