Last night was a tough one as the Green Beans, Mustard Seeds and Coconut Salmon doesn’t specify what should accompany the dish. And if it’s nothing then I would be seriously hungry and more likely to opt for a cup of tea and cookie! So, to avoid this we decided to make another side dish from the book which is stuffed aubergines. I absolutely love aubergines so this was a no-brainer for me.
We changed the recipe slightly and included spinach and mushrooms with the garlic, onions and tinned tomatoes..
Lightly browning coconut is the most heavenly smell ever! I was so pleasantly surprised how well it went with something so savoury as green beans. It gave it a wonderful texture and slightly chewy consistency. Amazing!
And the end result was…filling!
My word this was one filling dish and perhaps was a little too much for one dish. But it’s jam-packed full of goodness so although I didn’t finish it all, it kept me away from the biscuit barrel (which is hard to do!) Admittedly it was quite time-consuming and took a lot of precision with the timing to juggle both dishes at the same time but it’s a fantastic dish to do when you have a little more time in the evenings. We also kept back some of the toasted coconut which was delicious on this morning’s yoghurt and muesli!
