Vegetarian samosasĀ 

Vegetarian, Weight watchers: Around the world

As I am alone this week I look on the opportunity to eat meat free, healthy dishes with out complaint from the Jones over the lack of meat.

I’ve looked over this recipe for samosas for some time now, passing it off as a starter and trying to keep it in mind for when the need for an Indian stater arises. But as I looked over it at the weekend I thought why not make it as a main with salad? And do that’s what I did!

It’s a rather hearty dish really, lots of veg with a dose of seasoning. I halved the recipe but still ended up with mixture to freeze…no bad thing.

It was great tasting and really nice, different lunch to take to work. Easy, cheap, different, what’s not  to like?

Probably the most “real” cooking I’ve done all week!

I’m not sure why my kitchen activities have been so lazy this week but they have. Yesterday however normal service resumed and I whipped up this little bad boy!

Homemade focaccia? Yes

Homemade veal burgers? Yes

Homemade sauces? You get the picture!!

  
I did have questions over the Tuna and caper sauce. It seems a little odd right? Especially with the veal? I even told the Jones that I would put the sauce on the side just in case it wasn’t palatable but actually it tasted so delicious that I made an exec decision and put it straight I the burgers!

  
The focaccia bread base was a nice break from the usual top and bottom bun. The burger itself was moist and tasty and the addition of the salad and sauce made it a rather grown up burger.

I would highly recommend you try this dish. If you didn’t make the bread it would also be a very fast dish to prepare…very little cooking involved!
