In this post, I will return to reporting the daily menu of my Dumpstring Diet. Earlier, I realized it gets a bit repetitive to document and post every single daily meal, so I stopped doing it lately. However, this day was special: I got olive oil and mayonnaise as a present and that opened up opportunities to eat some fatty food.
However, the breakfast was very typical: oatmeal* with cinnamon and pieces of pear.
For lunch, there was pasta with spinach cooked in a saucepan with oil, spices and roughly crushed hazelnuts (those I got from the foodsharing fridge):
I never hoped for falafel during the Dumpstring Diet challenge, but if someone brings oil for you, it can happen! I got a pack of falafel flour couple of weeks ago at the public fridge. However, only later I realized that there is a need for some kind of fat to cook a real falafel. But now it finally had a chance!
In the end, along with other dumpster dived ingredients, they became part of very, very nice tortillas (the bread was a bit dry, so they had to be left open like pizzas:
The filling (or rather topping) consisted of cucumber, red bell pepper, lettuce, cherry tomatoes, red onion, the main star – falafel, mayonnaise and ketchup that is shared among me and flatmates. You can also see a semi-successful attempt of oven-baked artichokes. some closer to the chore were quite tasty but I really need to master coooking them. Finally, the three physalis berries were served as dessert.
* The ingredients in bold are dumpster dived or taken from Solidarity fridges. Others, besides salt and spices, are given to me or shared with me when having a meal together.
