i read about ‘orangette’s’ brussels shuffle, and the description of her market breakfast was more than i could stand
I should begin by saying this: do not underestimate the combined power of fresh goat cheese, honey, and olives. (Or spicy olives, to be specific, coated in something akin to harissa.) It is the trifecta….
so on a whim, and lured by some unexpected goat cheese gracing my doorstep, green olives were pitted and spiced with harissa, pita bread was gently defrosted in the oven until soft, the crumbled goat cheese was smoothed out by a bit of hot water and then a dark wildflower honey was drizzled on top of that – with complete abandon.
and dear readers, it was good. oh so very very good. so much so, that i have now had this exact dish 3 times in 5 days – and have served it to no less than 10 people. pita was what i had going. and it worked. but the authentic wrapping that would be used to envelop this spectacular tasting trio is called m’semmen, a moroccan pancake of sorts. and sure enough, i came across a recent post written about this very thing. but i don’t bake bread, remember? except i am now somewhat intrigued and might have to consider a m’semmen clause written into the ‘no bread baking’ contract that i have with myself.
but not today…
