Yummy days

Demain cela fait un mois que j’ai quitté la France… DEJA !! Et je ne me laisse pas mourir de faim sans raclette, tarte flambée, un bon Gewürtz etc etc.

Dans le précédent Wwoofing dans la Swan Valley, j’ai testé de faire un pesto maison avec le basilic qui foisonnait dans le jardin. Duncan m’avait conseillé une recette d’un de ses livres. Tip top ! On avait aussi fait une cure de pastèque, merci Duncan !!

PESTO

Ingredients :
▼ 2 cups basil leaves
▼ 1/2 cup virgin olive oil
▼ 2 garlic cloves, crushed
▼ 2 tablespoons cashew nuts
▼ 1 teaspoon salt, optional
▼ 8 tablespoons freshly grated parmesan cheese
▼ 2 tablespoons hot water

Put all the ingredients except for the cheese into the food processor and blend. Add the cheese gradually. Gradually add some hot water, from the pasta water preferably, until it is a smooth, thick paste.

Ensuite dans la famille de Margaret River, je m’amuse bien avec le thermomix de Karen (oui cela existe aussi ici !!). Hier avec L., on a donc fait un curry de poulet et aujourd’hui des yummy crêpes ! Et ici ce sont les fruits de la passion qui abondent : je n’en ai jamais mangé autant de toute la vie. Merci Scott et Karen !
