30 minute pizza dough (!!!!)

Yep, you heard it right, THIRTY minutes for a dough… I found this beautiful recipe (click here) on allrecipes, and expected it to probably not be as good as usual pizza dough that takes hours in rising time. But it was almighty.

Highly recommend.

  
I then used an organic passata for the tomato base.

  
Then added crushed garlic, sliced tomato, sliced mushrooms, spring onion, olives and sliced courgette (why hold back?!).

  
And after 25 mins in the oven, I drizzled with olive oil and added spinach that wilted on top.

WIN.

  

Spoil yourself

You’re worth it! Today I decided I was worth it and created this feast for lunch. Follow me on Instagram @mollyczachur for more photos 😃👍

 1. Spinach and spring onion salad with avocado and balsamic glaze

2. Four bean salad (bought a big tub from Aldi for £1.49- lazy person’s bargain)

3. Chilli/garlic olives (Aldi again, £1.49)

4. Mange tout

5. A strong black coffee (I added sugar-guilty!)

Homemade curly fries!

Wow! Since owning a spiralizer (it’s only been a week but how did I live without it?!) I’ve made courgette noodles, apple spirals, carrot noodles, and today was the potatoes turn.

Wow. Sooooo good.

So crispy and homemade tasting. NOM. I spiralized the potato, added paprika, salt and oil, and baked for around 10 mins at 200C.

   

       

King of Salads

I had a mis-match of salad and all sorts… And it was a huge winner so here goes…

 

Sautéed veg (mushroom/pepper/onion), tomato/vegan mozzarella/basil (with balsamic vinegar) and a rocket and caper salad with lemon juice and olive oil.

OOF.

The tomato slices with vegan mozzarella and basil were the highlight. This is a summer almost tradition in my house (with real mozzarella) so I am delighted to have found a vegan substitute! It doesn’t taste like the real deal but when covered in balsamic who’s going to care eh? Still very tasty.

Spinach & Pesto Quinoa Bowl

Today I fancied pesto, but not carby pasta… And I didn’t know whether basilled quinoa would be wrong. Google quickly sent me to this recipe by Table for Two (here), so I decided it was going to happen! HOW HAS THIS DELICIOUS IDEA NOT OCCURRED TO ME BEFORE!

I had the quinoa with cute little roasted red peppers, spinach and a homemade basil pesto (1/2 cup of soaked cashews, 1/2 cup olive oil, 2 cups basil, 1 clove garlic).

Absolutely amazing, thank you Table for Two!

Pizza and chips

I tried the ‘no moo’ cheese today, the melty one! Mmmm it was so good. I made mini pizzas (glorified bread) with some garlic crisps from my local food co-operative.
