Last week in my wisdom or lack of I decided to invite the boys friends whom he was playing with to Sunday lunch. At the end of the meal there was half a bowl of vegetables left over. A mixture of carrots, broccoli & runner beans. Instead of sending them to the food recycling bin, I tipped them into a bag & stuck them in the freezer.
Now I am known for shoving things in the freezer & not finding them until months later. So I was out to prove people wrong. The magi-mix was dragged out of the cupbourd ( quicker than chopping things by hand) & I whizzed up an onion, a couple of sticks of celery & two cloves of garlic. Fried slowly with some mixed herbs, salt, pepper & some chilli flakes. I added red lentils & couple of stock cubes & some water. I then added my frozen mixed veg from the freezer.
Now the colour worried me, it does resemble sludge but it tastes wonderful. Very creamy. As I still can't locate the cable for downloading photographs I'm sure you wont be disappointed by my lack of evidence. I shall leave you on this nice sunny October with some past photographs, just to brighten the page you understand. Enjoy you week!!
