British-Mexican fusion comfort food!
This made a wonderfully colourful and eclectic meal that combines a classic British beef, onions and gravy dish with a traditional Mexican side dish and a psychedelic mash! The flavours were a perfect complement to each other, my hubby said that it was just like food he grew up eating, (apart from the potatoes weren’t usually pink), and funnily enough me too, except for the cactus salad, well my mum never put beetroot in the mash either but it just goes to show that mince beef and potatoes are internationally comforting!

This beautifully thick and velvety soup is such a striking shade of emerald-green (my photo doesn’t do it any justice at all..) that you’ll feel healthier just by looking at it! This is a very vegetarian soup that even the most carnivorous of you will enjoy – I guarantee it. How do I know this .. well I live with a very carnivorous Mexican who, when we met, claimed not to like fruits or vegetables at all – “they’re for cows”, and would not be amused if there was no meat with dinner. These days, happily, he is far more omnivorous and as long as I don’t push it with too many veggie meals in a row, I can get away with 2 or even 3 meat free days a week. (more…)
