Cooking

I've been doing a fair bit of cooking this week to get through all the harvested veg - in particular the courgettes.  Here are some of the results.
 

I know it's only a red cabbage, but isn't the pattern lovely?  It tasted delicious too; recipe here (but I added some port): http://www.jamieoliver.com/recipes/vegetables-recipes/must-try-red-cabbage-braised-with-apple-bacon-and-balsamic-vinegar


 
The courgette cake, before and after icing.  It's very like carrot cake.  The recipe said just to use pecans, but this is half pecan and half walnut and I think it was nicer.  The icing came out a bit runny though.  The recipe is from this blog:  http://www.realmensow.co.uk/?p=3186
 
I also made a really nice tomato and courgette soup, which I forgot to photograph.  It's simplicity itself to make and is brilliant for getting through a glut.  My soup came out redder than the one in the picture: http://www.bbcgoodfood.com/recipes/2536640/courgette-and-tomato-soup
 
And lastly, dinner tonight, recipe from the top of my head!  It's a simple pasta with French beans, courgette, garlic, olive oil and chopped basil.  I used all three types of basil that I have growing; green, purple and lime.  Yum!
