Roasted Tomatoes & Mussels

stillwahdi.blogspot.com

Yesterday, I cooked a few dishes for lunch. Anyway I cook on a daily basis nowadays! Yeah... cooking is fun, and I never seem to get bored of it!

Lately, I find myself loving simple, fresh and fast dishes... and most importantly, they must be nourishing. Whenever possible, I would shorten the cooking time too, to keep the nutrients intact.

One of my dishes is the Mussels Salad. I roasted some small tomatoes with a dash of lemon, thyme, olive oil, and glazing them with honey. Once roasted, I blended in some well roasted tomatoes, garlic, a touch of black pepper and a pinch of salt to marinate my NZ mussels prior to cooking them for a minute in a hot oven.

I shredded some carrots, cucumber and celery, and mixed them in a big bowl with some herbs and olives - and drizzled with the juice from the roasted tomatoes.

I had arranged them in the bowls, put in the roasted tomatoes along with the mussels
and it was ready to be served!

I love the salad, especially with flavors of spring and summer!
