The simple things

It's true what the say, the simple things in life really are the best.
I try not to mess around with my food too much, use as few ingredients as necessary to enhance all the goodness nature has to offer. Yum!

Tomatoes (the gorgeous slices in the image above are from Spanish tomatoes brought home by my parents), drizzled in rich green extra virgin olive oil and scattered sweet basil leaves and sea salt. So simple yet sublime!

Aubergines, their pale flesh criss-crossed with griddle lines until soft all the way through and finished with fresh thyme picked from the garden, chilli flakes and a drizzle of Irish honey.

Butternut Squash, roasted for a hour with lots of garlic cloves left in the papery jackets, thick sage leaves, sweet sprigs of rosemary (not terribly summery I know..but that's just how Irish summers go!) and plenty of cracked black pepper.

These 3 make delicious side dishes to any meal and never cease to delight the taste buds!
