For the past few weeks I've been in a vegetarian's heaven. I returned home on Sunday after a brief visit at my mum's with three large bags of veggie goodies. Cucumbers, zucchinis, tomatoes and even cauliflower and broccoli. And that's not all, Mr. C's dad has a garden as well so we receive bags of veggies on a weekly basis from him as well.

Sunday was a blur of cooking and baking because some of the veggies were ripe and ready to use. Unlike store bought vegetables these aren't treated with anti fungus and yeast and whatnot so the average shelf life is 3 to 5 days. Which means I've pretty much been living on salads this past month.

And then I made burek, the ultimate Balkan comfort food. Usually made with minced meat or cheese. I made mine with some organic free range eggs, some homemade cottage cheese (from the same neighbour that made the cream) and the surprise ingredient: grated zucchini!
