A winter warmer - for Sun, Mon, & Tues

Here is tonights winter warmer. With the snow piled up against the door the best place to be is indoors. I put the heating on for an hour but now it is off, with the amount of clothes I have on I am bloomin sweating. With this inside me, I shall stay warm till bed time.

This is one example of my 'chuck it in the pan and see', recipes, ha ha.

Five or six carrots, Tesco Value, they are cheap at the moment, or they were when I bought them a week ago. A quarter of a butternut squash, chopped. One chopped onion. A few pieces of cauliflower, plus the stalk chopped up. A chopped up cooking apple. Small bag of frozen runner beans, from the garden. Some frozen peas. Some wholemeal pasta twirls. Two tablespoons of porridge oats. Chuck all this in a large pan with water, bring it to the boil, then add whatever spices you have. I have used an oxo cube, shake of garlic granules, two teaspoons of turmeric, and a packet of out of date tomato soup in a cup. It's only 18 months out of date, I'm sure it wont kill me.

I have three meals here...

And it is delicious.

Why don't you have a go, a meatless stew. I sometimes put quorn pieces in or chopped up veggie sausages, for a change.

    Take care x

  4. Very tasty but I'm wondering why the porridge oats is in there?

  5. Hi Manchester Lass, Porridge oats thickens it, bulks it out, makes it more filling, and is good for you.

  6. Thought that may have been the case. Thanks for clearing that up Ilona:)
