So I finally decided to take a break from ordering in and cook something instead. On the menu tonight was basmati and wild rice with chickpeas, currants and herbs and lemony leek meatballs. The meatballs were awesome before they turned lemony (that is before they were braised in chicken stock and lemon juice). I’m not a fan of anything sour. Let me just say that when it comes to cooking rice using the absorption method Ottolenghi’s recipe works like a charm every single time. Each grain of rice is separate and perfectly cooked. In other news, we have a brand new Ottolenghi fan in the house. Oggie kept pointing to the meatballs saying, “That there!” (which he says when he wants something) while gobbling up the rice. #glutenfree #glutenvrij #ottolenghi #jerusalem
