Sustainable meal

It was pretty nifty to be able to look at our dinner the other night and realise how much of it was from the garden.

Lots of salad leaves, some of our cucumber bounty and tomatoes. And then the piece de resistance - silverbeet tart from Stephanie Alexander's Kitchen Garden Companion, which I was given for Christmas.

(It looks better when she photographs it!)
I've already used this book so many times; it's brilliant to be able to look up whatever you have a glut of in the garden and make something different and I'm enjoying browsing as I'm choosing what to plant.

And to accompany it, a bottle of Re-Wine, which I wrote about last year!


  1. Looks brilliant. I'll have to try that tart. Looks delicious.

  2. Yum - looks scrumptious! It is so wonderful being able to eat your own grown produce isn't it!

    P.S thanks for visiting my blog!
