It was just by chance that we had been asked if we wanted to be part of the Tenderstem Around the World challenge and that the recipe card and vouchers had been delivered the same week that Daddy was off work. The first chore that Daddy and I took part in was going to the Supermarket and buying all the ingredients that we were going to need.
Now I like Broccoli, and I love Tenderstem (or Broccolini) because of it's flavour (a sort of cross between broccoli and asparagus to me) and the fact that you eat all of it. I'd been eating a fair bit of it in the couple of weeks before the challenge was issued to the family because of the whole Paleo eating plan (I really need to get back into that) and I had made some really lovely meals which you can see on my instagram feed if you feel like it!
So we started the week with Italy, with Lemon Pork Meatballs.
And went to Spain for Paella.
And then to Asia for Sticky Salmon.
And lastly was Morocco with a Moroccan Chicken Tagine dish that I have fallen in love with. Honestly, the combination of flavours on this one was the clear winner for me and I may have dreamed about it once or twice.
All the recipes are available on the Tenderstem website and a lot more too, so pop along and find some recipes that you'll love and come and tell me which ones you love.
By the way, I also LOVE Tenderstem with beef on Pizza.
We were provided with vouchers which paid for the majority of what we needed for the weeks food.
