You Made Me Love (Or At Least Like) You!

This week we're all about those ingredients that you once used to hate, but have grown to love - or at least to like a little bit.  We all have one of those, don't we - brussels sprouts, oysters, tofu, sardines, offal, are just a few ingredients that spring to mind which are often not so popular when we first try them.  I'm sure there is a list a mile long of potential ingredients you've grown to like.

So break out those Yotam Ottolenghi books (or have a look online), track down a recipe featuring one of those ingredients you were once less than enamoured of, and post your dish by Sunday 15 September.

Don't forget to link your dish as well as a thumbnail image below, and please leave a comment after you link so that we don't miss your dish.

No doubt in my mind what I'll be cooking this week - for me it's going to be tofu all the way. Can't say I've learned to love it, but Ottolenghi at least makes it bearable (even quite enjoyable).

There are a lot of foods I could have chosen for this theme but I went with winter squash.

Over the past few years eggplant made it from my "YUCK!" list to "LOVE" list ;-) so I made the simple and pretty Eggplant with Buttermilk Sauce. Yum!

I'm with Deb. As a child, eggplant is something I cried about having to eat. Now I grow it! What a change. Eggplant and Lemon Risotto was delicious.

Hey Everyone,

Just FYI--October themes are now on the side bar. Kicking off 9/30--it's our first 5 weeks of cooking with Donna Hay! ;-)

I've been out of town, but I got my sweet potato wedges up at the very last minute. Will be around to visit everyone's dish in a little bit (or tomorrow).
