saucy tomatos

There is nothing quite like chili fries. I wish I'd had some sort of cheese-like stuff to melt all over this and really do up the indulgence (not that this is really that indulgent, actually semi-healthy), but an extra splash of olive oil while making the fries pushed this to another level anyway. Plus lots of nooch and peppers for a perfect after school nosh.
(is this the reincarnation of a half-filled tin of tomato sauce sitting in my fridge? I say nothing.

Okay yes, it is. :D)

I *heart* V-con sooo much. I've made the saffron garlic rice before, it's my favourite (especially when you brown the bottom just a bit to get the most tantalizing crispy garlic-y crust... *droooools*), and the chickpeas romesco might be the best pantry-staple thing I've ever made. SO good. And even better about both these Spanish-y dishes is that they're free of lemon and sherry vinegar so I can go to town on the side vegetables and the whole plate tastes amazing.

Now I kinda want creamy tomato soup. Go figure. :P

I haven't tried the garlicky rice or the chickpeas from V'con...but your plate is very convincing!

I'm thinking you should open a street cart and sell those chili fries. You'd make bank!

Chili fries! Chili fries! Gimmie some of those chili fries! And just for the record, the tomato soup recipe in VCON is amazing (if you haven't tried it already).

I love chips (fries) in all their forms! I would have eaten them with tomato sauce straight out of a bottle, I'm embarrassed to say.

The rice and chickpeas also look like good eating.

Btw, the new blog is bluelentils.blogspot.com
