Weekend Herb Blogging #229 Recap

I'm very excited to be hosting Weekend Herb Blogging this week.  There were a number of fabulous submissions using all kinds of fruits, vegetables, grains, and herbs.  Here are this week's entries:

This cake sounds delicious, and is made with only a few ingredients.  I was excited to find that it's gluten-free, too (it's made with ground almonds).

Tigerfish from teczcape - an escape to food tells us about Kaffir lime leaves:
This post includes great information about how to find, store, and use Kaffir lime leaves, and an example of a dish that uses them (Thai shrimp cakes).

Winnie from Healthy Green Kitchen gives us a recipe for Soft Oatmeal Bread:
This bread uses cooked oats, and sounds delicious!

TS and JS from [eatingclub] Vancouver give us a recipe for Quinoa Lentil Apple Salad:
This recipe sounds like the perfect combination of grains, legumes, and fruit.

Nina from My Easy Cooking contributed a recipe for Green Bean Stew:
The stew includes lamb, potatoes, and green beans, and would be a great winter dish.

 Nuria from Spanish Recipes contributed a recipe for Strawberry Gazpacho:
In addition to step by step instructions for making the gazpacho, this post also includes information about the health benefits of eating strawberries.

 Muneeba from An Edible Symphony tells us about a Vietnamese Avocado Milkshake:
 This milkshake sounds like it will be a great beverage for staying cool this summer!

 Ben from What's Cooking? gives us a recipe for a Spring Mango Salad:
This salad combines mangoes with a lot of fresh vegetables for a tasty-looking salad.

Cinzia from Cindystar submitted a recipe for White Chocolate Pudding:
I can imagine any kind of fruit would be great with this pudding.

Yasmeen from Health Nut tells us how to make Pita Wedges with Green Almond Hash:

I've never tried green almonds, but this sounds like a perfect way to top pita bread!

Haalo from Cook (almost) Anything At Least Once introduces us to tazziberries and provides a recipe for Tazziberry Friands:
I've never had tazziberries, but they sound like an interesting combination of all kinds of delicious fruits.  These gluten-free friands sound like the perfect way to try them!

Joanne from Eats Well With Others contributed a recipe for Strawberry Yogurt Bread:
This sounds like a great way to use strawberries as the begin to appear in the markets.

And finally, here's my contribution, a recipe for roasted butternut squash:
