♨ sweet n savoury

this savoury is a winner of a recipe:
with the fresh tastes of Summer to waken up those sleepy tastebuds:
⋘ has walnuts to please suzie & is gluten free ⋙

maple glazed feta with walnuts *and other delicious things*

you will need: *for 4 people*
350g baby potatoes ~ washed not peeled
120g shallots or red onions ~ peeled
150g feta cheese ~ cubed
100g broad beans *I use frozen soya beans if not*
100g sugar snap peas
50g walnut pieces
grated rind of an orange
3 tablespoons of chopped fresh parsley
2-3cm piece ginger ~ peeled and finely grated
5 tablespoons maple syrup
2 teaspoons olive oil
greaseproof paper and some string

firstly, if you are using red onions ~ cut them into quarters
add them and the potatoes into a steamer:
*if you don't own one then place a colander over a saucepan of
simmering water with a lid on*
steam until just tender:
cut 4 squares of greaseproof paper about 30cms:
*if the paper is a bit thin, as some brands are, then double up!*

in a bowl ~
toss the potatoes and onions with the feta, beans, peas, walnuts, 
orange rind, parsley and ginger:
season well:
divide the mixture between the 4 greaseproof squares:
mix the maple syrup and oil together and drizzle over the veggies:
bring the paper up over the filling, twist and tie with string to seal:
place the parcels in a steamer, cover and cook for about 10 minutes:
*your potatoes and onions are already cooked remember,
so you're just heating up the rest*
put each parcel onto a plate and serve with a green salad and walnut bread:
we like ours with couscous 
tomorrow a cake recipe for the one you love ....
happy saturday
