CtBF~ED: Potato Tourte

It has been a while I baked anything pastry, whether sweet or savory, so I was not sure how these pies will turn out. I made only two mini pies in these 'when I am lost at what container shall I use' - they never fail me, every thing I baked in them will come out perfect, no sticking. 
Below: at dinner time three hours later.
Paired with my first taste of kohlrabi I found this morning at the wet market (happy dance, cos it is zero waste instead of imported, and cling wrapped at specialty outlets!).
 
(verdict: it actually tasted better the next day after warming up in the toaster oven)
 
 
I used a sharp knife to tackle the potatoes, used spring onions and a local herb (zero waste effort on my part), lemon zest in strips then minced, then further minced with the garlic.

CtBF~MPK: Leeks with mustard-bacon vinaigrette

Bought a big bunch of leeks, but only used four for this dish.  
 Washed the leeks, steamed them for thirty minutes (25mins should be good too). Drain them on paper towel.
I pan fried some thinly sliced Chinese sausage (instead of bacon), put the whole lot into the serving dish (then remove the sausages), add the mustard, sherry vinegar, and seasoning - whisk! Layer the steamed leeks pieces the best you can (cos they are rather delicate at this stage!). Top with chopped hard-boiled eggs, and sausage bits (and the chopped herbs which I totally forgot!) and eat!

CC#39: Smashed potatoes with (a very) green sauce

A delightful and simple potato side, but I used a couple of local green herbs in addition to dill.
A perfect pairing with crispy skin salmon.
