This was a quiet weekend in the kitchen . . . Saturday I decided to try and make spring rolls . . . I made them with cabbage, leek and carrot – all cut into little strips and sauteed in peanut oil – then I added some vinegar and a pinch of brown sugar. I set little bunches of this mixture on the wet rice paper disks, rolled them up and deep fried them. Very good !!
Then . . . I made some granola bars . . . so tasty and such a healthy snack!
At dinner we realized that we had no bread in the house . . . so I made some!
Today I spoiled my family and made some “coccoli” ( deep fried bread dough) . . . I wasn’t able to take a picture of the finished coccoli – they were gone as soon as they hit the table . . . so I posted pictures of them while frying . . .
For dinner I made some Pasta e fagioli with pinto beans that I soaked yesterday . . . . and of course . . . some more bread !!
