Bulgogi was what inspired this. It's a typical Korean dish mainly made with grilled meat. I often buy a bulgogi tuna as a quick snack when I'm hungry and it looks like a Californian roll with seaweed wrapped around rice and has spicy tuna in the middle. It's good. With this idea, I decided to make rice balls. And it had only six ingredients. Rice, shredded seaweed, tuna, sesame oil, salt and gochujang (Korean spicy red bean paste). You mix these and roll into balls. Refrigerate to cool. Eat when hungry or just eat.
Chestnuts. These things are so yummy! And even better in a salad. The only cooking that needed to be done was boiling the letilles vertes (green lentils). Toss some salad leaves, sweet corn, cooked lentils, cherry tomatoes, and cooked chestnuts.
In another version, I added some dried figs and they were as lovely. A sweet dressing like the honey yoghurt one goes really well with it.

Mix away. And you have yourself a simple dressing. I used this for lunch in my chestnut and lentils salad. It was good.
My favourite hot drink is hot chocolate. It's a strong love, really. It's as bad as having been to every café around my home to see which does the best hot chocolate.
So when I found this 100% cacao bar in M&S I was excited to try it. And try it I did! By the way, cacao is simply raw cocoa before it's been turned into chocolate. It's as raw as you can get with cocoa. Raw means the food hasn't been heated above 42 degrees C. So all it's antioxidants are still retained.
The best hot chocolate is one made on the hob! on a gas cooker with some kind of milk. My preference is soy milk.
I heat some milk in a saucepan, add two bars of the cacao to the pan and let it melt. Whisk and mix thoroughly and serve. Sprinkle with cinnamon and/or nutmeg as you wish. I use both.
For some reason, this is my pick me up drink when I need some cheering up. It has some magic in it. Maybe it's those antioxidants :)
