Spicy chick peas and water morning glory sprouts

Another delicious and simple plant based lunch with hot spices.

I stir-fried this mirepoix with ajowan and mustard seeds.

I’ve added these soaked and boiled chick peas. And powdered curry spices.

Then on top some salt, chili powder and garam masala spice mix.

Kushinsai, water morning glory. Here, it’s the sprouted version.

Steamed only one minute.

The plate ! Mmmm…

Kuzukiri crystal noodles in creamy coriander sauce

Transparency in the Spring crisp light…

Hummus coriander sauce :
In the mortar, stalks and roots of coriander, a handful of chick peas (boiled), then when it’s pasted a generous amount of tahini sesame paste, salt and pepper. That was a bit thick, I delayed with hot water.

Kuzukiri are Japanese noodles made of kuzu starch (more here). These also contain potato starch.

That’s it ! And when you mix :

It’s so creeeeaaaaamy !

Side dish : chicken liver salad with steamed greens, myoga and raspberry vinaigrette.
