Delicious Resting Sauce for Beef Steak

To really make your beef steak taste amazing, try this easy ‘sauce’  from Jamie Oliver.

On a board, finely chop half a large bunch of flat leaf parsley (about 1/2 cup when it has been chopped finely)
Add to it the following:
~ 1-2 tsp dijon mustard
~ juice of half a lemon
~ olive oil
~ salt and pepper

Mix around on the board until it has a thick consistency.  (Add more oil/lemon juice if you need to)  Spread it out to cover the board.

Season and oil your beef steaks, cook them to your liking in a fry pan
Place on the parsley/dijon sauce and rest for at least 10 minutes
Turn and coat in the sauce then serve – delicious!

Quinoa, Kale & Pomegranate Salad

I’ve been trying to find a good recipe with kale as it is so nutrient dense (vitamin K, A and C) but didn’t want something that was too ‘hippy’ as I didn’t want to put off the people I was feeding!
The addition of the pomegranate makes it sweet and crunchy – thanks to Scandi Foodie for inspiration for this dish!

~ 3/4 cup dry quinoa, boiled in salted water for 10 minutes and drained
~ 1/2 bunch of kale (I used the purple variety that I found at my local asian grocers), steamed for about a minute then chopped coarsely
~ 1 pomegranate – seeds and juice
~ drizzle of balsamic vinegar
~ drizzle of olive oil
~ salt and pepper

Combine the above in a bowl.
Make a dressing in a glass or jug out of:

~ 1/3 tsp dijon mustard
~ 2 tsp apple cider vinegar
~ 2 tbsp olive oil
~ salt and pepper

Spoon dressing over the salad and serve! (makes enough for 3-4 people)
