Dinner
Aubergine and red lentils spring rolls
Maize boiled and then grilled
Oyster mushroom scallops

Here, the aubergine are still in season and the winter isn’t at all settling. I’d rather say that it’s late summer beginning of autumn. This is one of the pleasure of living more southern than last year! I had a good luck while surfing on the Messy vegetarian’s blog and the spring rolls are freely inspired from his recipe. It was a true treat with some boiled and grilled maize and our favourite mushroom scallops. A nice meal before I take the night train to the wintry north.

Polish dish: mushroom scallop

Vegetarian, Bento, Cuisine, Recipes, Zoé

Dinner
Mushroom scallop [polish recipe]
Onion and curcuma risotto
Mediterranean foil parcel

We have spent an incredibly great week-end with Bear’s polish colleagues. Though they only speak polish, my polish is good enough to understand easy things and answer half with words half with mimes. Yes, I rarely encounter any polish in my work, whereas Bear is all the time working with Poles, therefore he’s nearly fluent.
As I am a vegetarian, and polish diet is really full of meat, Agda thought a lot and came with this incredible mouth watering mushroom scallop. The idea is to mimic their chicken scallop. These easy scallop need two major ingredients Boczniak mushrooms and tarta bulka which is finely blended bread crumbs made of their bulka bread (baking soda based bread). I think you might find them in special polish stores, I believe. Well, I’ll figure it out next year, as I definitely want to have some more of these in the future, even if not living in Poland any more.
I added some little foil parcel of Mediterranean vegetables with some fresh basil and thyme I manage to grow near the kitchen window. To accompany these goodies, Bear in the meantime prepared some simple but tasteful onion and curcuma risotto. It was a joy to cook together, and even more when we sat down and started to eat…Oh Poland, you really can have good food!
