The Lunch Challenge

The Challenge.


A three course lunch menu taking into account a non-seafood eater, a non-meat or chicken eater and for moi, a non-gluten and refined sugar eater (and at the moment, a non-cow milk dairy eater).  Holy smoke.  Talk about a challenge.

The Menu.


Sweet potato and tahini dip (stay tuned) and my roasted beet hummus (see recipe here)

Sugar snap pea and goats curd risotto with crisp apple, fennel and walnut salad ..... and then, The Dilemma.  Dessert?


The answer.  The loveliest poached pear and almond tart.  Soft, crumbly and slightly caramelised with plenty of sweetness.  The fact my girlfriends (who do eat sugar) went in for seconds was proof in the pudding (well, tart!)
