The Sweet and Sour lentils (which were really just fancy dhal) were not particularly sweet or sour. However, they did have one saving grace. Combined with quinoa and a few other flavours, they made the loveliest little croquettes! I am working on a really good recipe which I will post in due course.
This week I am going back to basics to cut down on cooking time and get a few other essential tasks out the way that have piled up (accounts - bleurgh - and fitting cheat's secondary glazing to some old windows for winter). As usual all the food is meat and dairy free.
Black Bean fridge stew
(Beans need using as do a few other bits and pieces)
(Mushroom and green lentils)
Spicy Bean Soup
(an old favourite from Delia with added greens)
Bulgar Wheat Vegetable Risotto
(will finally pin down the recipe and post)
Mixed Bean Chilli
(need to make a big batch for the freezer)
Red Bean patties filled with coconut and coriander chutney
(didn't get round to this last week so if I have time I will try this week)
(baby has Breakfast and Broccoli muffins in the freezer)
(have promised husband I won't eat this batch so quickly...)
(cold days means more hot breakfasts)
