The Great Vegetable Experiment Part 2

Good Evening again.
So I hope you enjoyed the first part of my Veggie trilogy (think Star Wars but with less Ewoks).
This is part two, as the title suggests!
The main meal for this post is sweet potato and peanut burgers with a celeriac remoulade.
I found this recipe on the Abel & Cole website ( Not only are they a great company for veg boxes and other bits and pieces but they also have a great range of recipes.
This recipe involves lightly boiling a couple of sweet potatoes and then grating them into a bowl. Add in a couple of tablespoons of both crunchy peanut butter and soy sauce, a small thumb of grated ginger and a handful of fresh chopped coriander and season as usual. I then fried this in a tiny bit of oil in a shallow pan and served like a normal burger, in a bun with salad and mayo.
With this I grated the same quantity of celeriac and apple and mixed with a goodly splodge of creme fraiche and a little bit of dijon mustard. Finally I sprinkled in a few pumpkin seeds and a bit of chopped fresh parsley.
It was a delicious dinner with lovely thai flavours and crunchy freshness!
On saturday my husband made us some cookies. We always use Nigella Lawson’s book ‘Kitchen’ for cookies. She has the most amazing recipe for chocolate chip ones in there but this time we tweaked it a little. Instead of chocolate we threw in a couple of small chopped up apples, some chopped dried dates and a light sprinkle of cinnamon. This recipe is great, soft and almost gooey in the middle and chewy near the edges. Perfect with a saturday afternoon brew!
