As I was typing up this new One Ingredient challenge, I entered and made up the badge for September, not October. That is a sign of days turning into months without my even realising it. I am sure there will be a sudden dawning that in fact we are well and truly entering a different food season. One of warm russets, golds and yellows with an emphasis on more harvest time ingredients.
This is when the soups and casseroles start to bubble away more frequently and bakes often begin to feature the ever more popular pumpkins and squashes. To go along with this Autumnal season, I have chosen an ingredient that can be used in both sweet and savoury dishes in equal measure.
Think of breads, pesto, salads, tarts, crumbles, pies and fudge!
I hope to see lots of nutty inspiration over the coming month and that you will join both myself and Nazima in celebrating the walnut and it’s versatility in the kitchen.
Please see below for the One Ingredient rules and enter using the Simply Linked widget at the bottom of this post.
This monthly family friendly cooking challenge is hosted by Nazima at Franglais Kitchen and Laura at How to cook good food.
There is a monthly theme ingredient which we ask you to make, and blog a recipe around.
The rules are as follows
The recipe does not have to be showy or complicated – just family friendly
It can be sweet or savoury (depending on the ingredient and your taste!)
You can use an old blog post if you wish but please let us know and please add the monthly one ingredient logo – we will create an appropriate logo for each month!
Feel free to enter the recipe to other challenges as well.
Please give credit if you use other people’s recipes and link to the source as appropriate.
Please enter by using the “Linky” tool which will vary according to which one of us is hosting. Alternatively you could Email your entry to firstname.lastname@example.org - let us know the recipe title, a photo and the link to the blog post. Let us know via Twitter if you do this as it is hard to keep track of all submissions.
Please include a link to our websites as the challenge hosts.
If you tweet your recipes and use the hashtag #oneingredient we will retweet all those that we see.
We hope you feel inspired to enter!
Laura and Nazima
