Some recipes just don’t turn out. This one, which I modified by using black soybean pasta to make it vegan, was tasted by three people, and we would all describe it as Bad – I will never make this again. We all like rhubarb, and I usually like Ottolenghi’s recipes, but this dish disappointed.

Grilled lettuce has been on my list of recipes to try for some time, but I only just got around to it.
Rating: Tasty – I will probably make it again
I don’t buy lettuce very often because I don’t much care for it, and this recipe won’t make me yearn to buy lettuce. However, it’s a very good way to use up leftover lettuce. It tastes nothing like a salad.
I tried this recipe for roasted yams with chickpeas and yoghurt but used purple yams and added some yellow beets. It occurred to me that I might have gotten a similar colour effect with orange sweet potatoes and red beets.
I wanted to like this dish because I like all the components independently, but somehow the combination and the seasoning didn’t work for me. I’d rather make sweet potato wedges and serve them with a wrap of roasted chickpeas and tzatziki, or with chickpeas with yoghurt.
