Mediterranean sausage, fennel, canellini bean and tomato cassoulet Category: Recipes

Whilst catching up on some blogs, I came across this recipe from Mostly Eating.  I made it on Saturday and it was delicious… though I couldnt get any fresh oregano so used fresh thyme (next time I want to use oregano though, I dont think the thyme was quite right) and I threw in a glass of white wine as Sophie suggested which made it more cassoulet-like.

I also have my eye on this summer spelt recipe from Mostly Eating – keep up the good work Sophie!

Chilli Tuna with Mixed Bean Salad Category: Recipes

Yet another quick dish I’ve thrown together. It is filling and rather tasty in a zesty kind of a way.

Ingredients

  • 2 Tuna Steaks
  • 1 lime
  • 1 red chilli
  • Olive oil
  • Tin of mixed beans (Soya beans, Chick Peas, Pinto Beans, Black Eye Beans, Red Kidney Beans & Aduki Beans)
  • Mixed salad leaves – we used rocket, spinach and watercress
  • 3 tomatoes

Method

  • Rinse Tuna & put in a dish so that they can lie down next to each other
  • Squeeze juice of lime & a good glug of olive oil over tuna
  • Chop chilli finely & add to tuna – cover dish & pop in fridge for 20 minutes
  • Put griddle pan on to heat up
  • Drain tin of bean & rinse well
  • Put tuna in griddle pan, pour over excess liquid, season with salt and pepper – cook as you like it
  • Place a good handful of leaves on a plate, sprinkle over a good handful of beans & place tomatoes around the side
  • Place tuna steak on top of salad & serve

Delicous and healthy, even if I do say so myself.
