I defrosted some leftover BBQ steaks for lunch, so all i had to do was the side dish. We love BBQ tomatoes, but obviously I wasn’t going to light up the grill only for that. So I tried out the grill setting on my new oven (when I opened the previous one last week I was suddenly left with the door in my hand 😕 ). Cherry tomatoes in a pyrex some salt, 5 minutes grill on each side at 300 degrees. I paired it with plain orzo, always a hit with the kids. 3 cups orzo in some oil, stir fry for two minutes, add 3 cups boiling water, 1 heaped tsp salt, mix, cover. Done when all the water is absorbed, 5-10 minutes. All done within 15 minutes 🙂

I posted before about my basic chocolate oil cake. Now I present the vanilla chocolate chip cake – no eggs, no dairy, no margarine. And universally approved.

Magic!

Ingredients
1/2 cup spelt flour

1/2 cup dark brown sugar

Pinch salt
1/2 cup chocolate chips or to taste
1 cup water
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 tbsp vanilla (I like a lot, a tsp is fine too)

Preheat oven to 160 degrees.
Sift flour into a mixing bowl. Add sugar, salt and baking powder. Add chocolate chips and mix.
