I have been thinking about buying a breadmaker for a while . Bread prices are rocketing and I have become convinced this something I ought to be doing myself . I have been doing more baking recently its been the cleaning up that really gets to me , flour and water make glue you know and my worksurfaces are not a big fan of glue.
This weekend I gave in … Though the breadmaker resembles an overfed ipod and is competing for space in my small studio flat, I suspect it will become essential.
My main incentive is making bread for sandwiches at work, I confess I have spent some time looking in sandwich shops gasping at prices and muttering to myself like the Scrooge I am , however the recipes are wonderfully inspiring including this one I have taken to recreating from lovely Fresh Organics , Bugsy – Grated Carrot, Houmous, Watercress & Alfalfa Sprouts . Really great textures
I often get sprouted seeds in the vegebox , they are creamy & nutty . I love making my own houmous it easy to monitor the amount of oil chick peas are an addictive ingredient .
So this is my first sandwich made with my own three seed ( sesame , pumpkin and sunflower ) wholemeal bread , sprouts ( chick pea & mung bean) , spinach & homemade homous . I shall be eating it with a smug look on my face tommorrow and though I will try not to become a breadmaker bore the prospect of Marmite Bread is beckoning
200g of dried chick peas soaked overnight , simmered in boiling water for 40 minutes
2 clove of garlic
1 heaped tsp of tahini
Half a lemon juice
2 tbsp of olive oil
- Once the chick peas have cooled
- Puree together all the ingredients
- Thats is ready to eat
While I was eating my lunch in the park the Stella Artois Zeppelin perhaps its too many episodes of Dr Who but it really freaked me out for a second , this Star Over London starting from 185pounds for 30 minutes I might be passing but if you have some spare cash I imagine its pretty special
