Hi everyone, my name is Tom. I'm a friend of gretel's. I've been vegetarian (I eat dairy and eggs) since early 2002. I love cooking vegetarian dishes and trying out new recipes. I thought I'd post what I made for dinner last night - it's a quick and simple recipe, but it's very tasty.

Pear, walnut and goats cheese salad.

Ingredients:
2 pears
Rocket and baby spinach
Handful of walnuts, roughly broken up
Approx 40g goat's cheese feta
1/2 tbsp white wine vinegar
1/2 tbsp whole grain mustard
3 tbsp olive oil
lemon juice

1) Half and core the pears, then slice into medium wedges. Coat the wedges in lemon juice and put on a baking tray. Bake at 150 deg for about 5-7 mins. They should be warm, but not overly browned/softened.

2) Combine the vinegar, oil, mustard and a pinch of salt in a water-tight container and shake thoroughly. It can sit for a while after this, but you should give it a quick re-shake before serving.

3) Put the spinach/rocket into bowls, layer the pears on top and then scatter the walnuts over them. Drizzle on the dressing, then crumble the goats cheese feta over the top. You can also add some croutons if desired.

(serves 2-3)

There you go, gretel :)
