Another meal from my birthday party! This one is Greek style pasta salad with feta and fresh vegetables – it’s not vegan, sorry, but all of my friends eat dairy so I thought I’d add feta cheese for a different flavour – maybe you could add kidney beans to make it vegan, but the flavour and style would change quite a lot; it’s always good served with lovely crusty white bread though :)
It tasted really lovely and my friends liked it – we were picking at it at the end of the party like it was popcorn! I made it again after I gave blood this evening so I could restore my energy, it definitely made me feel more steady – there’s always that lovely feeling of energy flooding your body when you eat something carby and filling :)
