st_aurafina: A shiny green chilli (Food: Green Chilli)
Recipe Friday

Something I cooked recently:
Lime, coconut and mint balls (CW for talk of 'healthy eating')

I'm on the hunt for some kind of snack type thing that isn't going to upset my FODMAP issues, and I'm a bit wary of using dates which is the standard glue for this kind of food. Dates = fructose = bellyache. These were mostly almond meal for the solid part. I had to mess around with proportions to get the right texture to roll them into balls, but they are good. The flavour improved over time. You need to keep them in the fridge or they get very soft - I think I'd add a whole cup of coconut next time I make them. And a smidge less mint, because wow, mint is strong straight out of the garden.

ETA: I just remembered that when I made these, I toasted the almond meal and the coconut, because raw almond meal is bleh to me.

Something I have concrete plans to cook soon:
This is a bit of a cheat because I make it every week, but I've been meaning to write down the recipe so I don't lose it from my mind (because I'm sure to stop making it soon and forget how.)
Toasted Granola )

Something I'm idly planning to cook in the future:
Chard and Feta Filo Bundt
I'm craving spinach and it really needs a cut-back in the garden, so this looks like an option. And I love that it's in a bundt tin - it would be really easy to serve slices of it that way.
