On this particular stinking hot day I wanted to make an adaption of some delicious bacon + egg pies I found on TFP's blog. I've had SO much baby spinach and chives growing I thought I could mix things up by making a Salmon, Baby Spinach, Chive + Feta Pie. I cannot believe my experiment a) actually worked and b) tasted good...really good.
I think radishes must be the EASIEST and most delicious vegetable to grow. Coupled with the fact that they don't get eaten by caterpillars as they grow underground makes them perfect in my eyes - though the leaves do get nibbled so keep an eye out nevertheless. It's hard for me to not just pick the radishes, wash them and eat them like lollies. I've been strong though and saved a few for actual meals.
To accompany my awesome pies I made a side salad using my beautiful radishes, more of my never ending baby spinach and some rocket that's been going great guns on the balcony. You can also eat the radish leaves (something that I only just found out) - I didn't use too many in this salad as they are a bit bitter...
And there we have it - a delicious and relatively simple (though somewhat time consuming to me) weekend brunch. Right...I'm hungry!
