A delicious recipe for summer months from Nigel Slater. If you have fresh beans and peas, use them, but if not frozen work well too. If you like you can serve on top of sliced tomatoes, or toasted sourdough. Or serve some fresh crusty bread alongside.
A refreshing drink which is popular during Ramadan from ” Sumac” by Anas Atassi. If you have a good Middle Eastern store nearby you may be able to buy ready made Jallab syrup, but if not you need to mix the grape and date molasses in equal amounts yourself.
