Apologies for the quality of the photo – not sure what happened there!
Using up: broad beans, (old) new potatoes. bacon
This one really was off the top of my head – Pete wasn’t sure about the tuna and bacon together, but he is now 🙂
I cooked maybe 750g of new potatoes that were looking a bit weary, and steamed some fresh broad beans over them for about 6 minutes. While that was going on, I fried 3 thin rashers of bacon, chopped into strips, then drained it on kitchen paper; I kept the olive oil I cooked the bacon in.
Chopped up some herbs from the garden (Pete got them, I think there were chives, fennel, flat leaf parsley, rosemary and savory), and a green onion. Opened a can of tuna in sunflower oil – tuna and bacon go really well together.
Combined all that in a bowl, and made a dressing from the baconified olive oil (plus a bit more), a teaspoon of grain mustard, and some white wine vinegar. Added the potatoes and beans, stirred it all together, ate from bowls. It was very very nice.
Oh – we didn’t eat all those spuds, for that would be piggy indeed. About half of them are in a bowl in the fridge, and they are going to be eaten tonight, fried up, to accompany some venison sossidges which came out of the freezer this morning. YUM. We like sossidge.
