Spicy, sweet, salty – this recipe had all the things I look for in a recipe. I got the ingredients together for the sauce first of all. I find with anything saucy and east-asian, getting your mise en place together its especially important because there are usually a lot of components.
My poor, long-suffering other half has had to eat many a food experiment over the years, complying with all of my culinary whims and wishes. The one dish that I have never been able to convince him to eat is frittata or omelette – its a textural thing. So when I found a recipe for vegan frittata while perusing Elly Pear’s latest veggie/vegan cookbook, Green, the reception wasn’t exactly rapturous. I sold it as more a chickpea pancake quiche. I suppose it isn’t far off Socca – the French chickpea flour pancake. He wasn’t convinced.
