Mystery Box Challenge October 2009

Our friends brought over a whole lot of mystery ingredients and this time it was our turn to cook.

It was a lot harder than I expected, and I used a lot of dishes and pots and pans! But it was really fun, I would definitely do it again (bring it on!). Having said this, we're doing another one this Friday (this time our friends are cooking), so watch this space.

Ingredients were:
sundried tomatoes
red onion
capsicum
chorizo
lamb loin chops
couscous
fetta
pine nuts
turkish bread
hummus
baby spinach
rocket
pumpkin
frozen mixed berries
filo pastry
almond meal
tomatoes
lemons
coriander

The result

Entree:
Toasted turkish squares, rubbed with garlic and topped with
a) hummus, chorizo and wilted baby spinach

b) tomato relish, chorizo and coriander

Roasted capsicums filled with couscous seasoned with lemon rind, and mixed with fetta, sundried tomatoes and roasted pumpkin.

Dianne, it took awhile :) But it was more a progressive meal...the entrees came out and we ate for a bit then the mains, etc etc.
