I had a craving for vegetables at the weekend. I think it may have been due to feeling guilty at eating nowhere near the now-recommended 7-a-day. I used to easily eat 5 a day but have been a bit lazy recently. When I thought about it I realised that the only fruit and vegetables I had eaten all day were 2 small clementines. An unhealthy dinner would just have to put be off until the next day. Vegetables were in order.
After looking in the fridge and looking at all my bottles of sauces, I actually started to feel excited about creating something healthy. There was a bottle of pomegranate molasses that I had barely touched, apart from when I added some to the tonkatsu sauce I made recently. There was also some slightly wilted coriander, maybe it would have been better in a curry but it was still green and tasted ok so I decided that could go in too. I also had an unopened pot of sumac in the cupboard. I love the lemoniness of sumac and before long my salad was beginning to take shape.
