If you long to become a creative cook, read on. I think I found a key to that magic place. Where we will eat this great Couscous Salad with Spinach and Olives.
When I tell people in my cooking classes that probably the most difficult thing of cooking is to decide what to cook tonight, I’ll get a lot of smiling faces and glances of recognition. Because that IS the hardest part.
Also for me.
I also have those days that I really don’t know what to cook.
Every day again I’m making THE decision. What shall I cook tonight? What would I like to eat? What am I in the mood for?
If you’re tired of this answering this question, or would like to know how I stay inspired to find an answer on it every single day, read on.
I’m not good at throwing food away. I always have looooots of little pots and cups in my fridge with small amounts of food and halved veggies in my drawer. Next to that cabbage of lettuce that seems to live forever there. With all the condiments that surround them, I invent new dishes. That’s also how this recipe for a crunchy and mild spicy couscous salad with mustard seeds came into existence.
The French dish Tian is a kind of a gratin but then upright. And without the potatoes. Oh, and I don’t do eggs in my gratin. Well, thankfully it is as great! Maybe because I put some lavender in it for a real Provençal feel?
