Fatoosh Revisted

Posted on

This is an extra post because I’ve written about fatoosh before. The hot weather has me reaching for some familiar favourites. Now is a good time to remember all the wonderful summer dishes I haven’t eaten for months. I’ve been making pita bread to eat with all sorts of dips, and this is how I used up one leftover bread, for lunch.

Spicy Cucumber Salad

This cucumber is prepared with Sichuan pepper, chilli oil, garlic, vinegar, salt and sesame oil.

Vegan Bánh Mì

It’s not authentic Vietnamese cuisine, but this sandwich (recipe) is still nice. Since I wasn’t being authentic anyway, I used Turkish bread instead of a baguette, and seasoned tofu in place of tempeh. I used purple carrot, sweet pepper and cucumber for the vegetables, and chilli oil instead of chilli sauce.

Kao Pad Thai Fried Rice

This recipe is what I used. Since I don’t like raw tomato, I cooked it together with the other vegetables.

Smashed Cucumber Salad

Posted on

I used this recipe, but I had to make my own smoky vinegar as I didn’t have any black vinegar. It has a little too much sesame oil for my taste, so if I make it again I will reduce the sesame oil a little.

Buttermilk Tahini Dressing

I halved the salad dressing in this recipe, and applied it to my own salad. It made a pleasant change from my usual vinaigrette.
