Weekend dinners and best sweet potato wedges recipe!

With beautiful weather, I can’t help but always be in the mood to bake, cook and eat outdoors! Last night (Saturday), we decided to stay in and make dinner.

I just received a copy of Plenty by Yotam Ottolenghi and it’s just moutwatering. I decided to use 2 recipes from the book, the sweet potato wedges and the surprise tatin, which is a savory tarte tatin made with potatoes, onions, goat cheese and oven-roasted tomatoes instead of the traditional apples.

We all fell in love with the sweet pumpkin wedges!

Express: ricotta goat cheese, bread and greens

I recently impulse-bought a new cookbook on baking with whole grain flours, Good to the Grain, and so I decided to go to Al Raha Stone Mill in Qadsiya Co-Op to stock my cupboard with some oats and different kinds of flours.

I am big fan of this shop and I love how knowledgeable their staff are. It’s very rare in Kuwait to go into a shop and find the shopkeeper actually know what they’re talking about. I mentioned them here and here.

Of course I couldn’t stop after getting what I went for. I saw a selection of different kinds of goat cheese, which are made locally at their goat farm, and saw ricotta goat cheese. I had to get it!

I also grabbed a bag of 4 grains flat bread and went back home.

In a bowl, I spooned some of the ricotta cheese, added barbeer, mint, cucumber slices, walnuts, green olives, a drizzle of olive oil and a few flakes of sea salt.

And what I had was one of the most satisfying simple meals ever! The bread was on the sour side which I love and the cheese was so smooth and creamy.
