During our vanlife adventure in Sardinia we discovered Fregola, tiny pearls of pasta made by hand which originate from the Italian island. Fregola is a very versatile ingredient and can be used in soups, stews, salads and in this recipe made into a risotto-like pasta dish.
It is one of our favourite campervan kitchen staples. So much so we brought plenty back with us! However, you can find it online (amazon), in posh supermarkets and Italian delis. Although you could substitute it for Orzo or Arborio rice, you may need to add more stock/water.
This recipe can be easily adapted to suit your tastes, camper kitchen supplies and diets - it can be made totally vegetarian and vegan.
Recipe from Meg, from Flora & the Novice Explorers
This little bowl just bursts with coconut curry flavours. It's quick and easy to make and use your favourite stir-fry veggies or whatever veggies you have leftover in the fridge. Our version here is protein packed and makes two medium bowls.
It very much depends on the size of your tajine and your personal taste to the amounts you use so I haven’t given amounts. This is a vegan recipe but you can add meat or fish as is often done in Morocco.
CREAMY PEPPER SAUCE WITH MUSHROOMS
goes well with with a meaty dish
The key to getting the most “pepperiness” from your peppercorn sauce is to toast the pepper gently with the mushrooms and garlic before adding the cream. Fresh thyme, bay and a squeeze of lemon add all the right flavours and you’re done.
