This Little Pigs Grandma has the most amazing veggie patch this world has seen. Giant bulbs of garlic, luscious silver beet, gentle sweet peas and earthy potatoes are all blossoming in this little patch of delightfulness. One of this fine swine’s favourite foraged foods from Grandma Olives is glossy rhubarb sticks, ripe and ready to be stewed.
This little recipe number is an actual delight. Thrown together in a matter of minutes (if you chop and zest very quickly), you can have a gorgeous breakfast on the table and ready to eat as fast as you can say, “gosh isn’t eating fun!?”. So give this breaky number a crack and keep in mind that you could quite possibly have this as a light crumbly dessert with some custard instead of yoghurt! Oiiiinkkk!
