Wandering Tastebuds – Part II

One fine day in Bangkok, we walked out of our beautiful teak guest house on to the main road (near Khao Sahn) with one plan in mind.
Get on the next bus going past!
And we did.
A red one… They’re free!
Having no idea where we were heading, we watched out the windows of this timber floored bus as we drove further away from the tourist centre…
Keeping an eye out for anything worth exploring…
Ready to disembark at any second!
Passing streets and streets of stores on repeat;
Tile store, light store, toilet store, light store, tile store, tile store, toilet store and on they went!
And a burst of colour, FRUIT!
Off we get, and a beautiful market we find.
Not another tourist in sight…
But the locals watched, giggled & smiled at us welcomingly!

Farmer’s Markets

I love shopping at the farmers markets. It’s great because it ensures you’re eating seasonal produce, whereas at supermarkets they can store some fruits of veggies for ages before they even hit the shelf. So you’re food is fresher, it’s sooo much more flavoursome, you support locals & is mostly super cheap! It’s also just so nice to avoid the shopping centre!

This is a simple hearty salad with all ingredients from the Lismore Farmers Markets.

Mesculin lettuce mix, eggplant, zucchini, tomatoes, green beans, mixed olives & red onion.

I pan fried the thin slices of zucchini & eggplant in olive oil until they had softened and got some colour. A balsamic dressing goes well, 1 part vinegar to 2 parts good quality extra virgin olive oil, salt, pepper, some garlic, and you’re good to go. Fetta would be nice too!
